look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: deep, robust copper. tried to pour carefully, but still got some unfiltered-ness. tiny carbonation bubbles fight through the yeast particulate.

S: smells like banana fosters. banana, brown sugar reduction with a splash of rum. really smells like dessert.

T: alcohol, vanilla and brown sugar at the tail-end. alcohol has a mild numbing effect on the tip of the tongue/warming factor. the residual sugar is significant in this brew, actually diminishing any yeast character and even some of the wheat character.

M: just a touch of carbonation works great on a full, heavy body.

D: a strong brew proudly representing a strong style. overall, just a bit too much alcohol. may need to get another one of these and set it aside for a while to see if it can mellow out.

This beer is an opaque orange in color with a bit deeper hues verging on pinkish-red. The light brown head that forms is pretty tight and dense, sitting almost like a pillow just over 1 finger high and sticking around for a fairly long time before dissipating to a thick foam. Some lacing drops down the glass and remains.
There's a lot of fruit on the nose with a tinge of alcohol and just a hint of grains underneath the very strong dark fruits. There's also a touch of hops and an interesting yeast profile.
It's really good for the style that the wheat beer was the majority, because I can imagine the subtleties would be completely lost otherwise. As it is, it takes work to separate this from a typical (albeit very good) barleywine. Thus, it's very much like a well-made barleywine with more complexity and a wheat/grains undertone. Otherwise there's lots of dark fruits and impressions of fig, a touch of toffee and/or vanilla and a dose of hops. Overall it's generally a sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol heat to it. There's enough complexity in here to keep me happy and it's very tasty. Alcohol is heavy, and there's even a bourbon-like touch to this. but I'm still surprised to read nearly 11%. Well crafted.
This beer has a pretty full mouthfeel that reaches a good balance of crispness on the front and smoothness following.
This is a very interesting mix making for a nice slow sipper.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Burning alcohol spice upfront with some lingering dark ripe fruit in the background. Some biscuit and toast mixed with the plums and alcohol. But mostly alcohol.

Appearance: Poured slowly from bottle conditioned vessel this beer holds a beautiful and deep mahogany red. Good clarity if you don't pour the yeast, which is easy to hold back. Head initially holds an off-white blanket, but fades quickly to a thin ring of white at the edge of the glass. No lacing.

Flavor: Bready malt sweetness hits the tongue at first but is quickly punched back by the alcohol spice and dark fruit presence. The alcohol creates almost a peppery spice through the middle and into the finish. Tannic orange peel and grapefruit rind finish out this beer, as well as lingering alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation. The alcohol presence has an almost cooling effect on the palate, but is balanced fairly well with just enough malt sweetness to keep this beer in check throughout. Alcohol burns just a bit in the finish.

Overall: This is a straightforward malt and alcohol explosion in your mouth. While the malt does offer some complexity and tries its best to balance that alcohol, it does push toward overly hot at times. This beer would likely cellar quite well, mellowing out in time. Definitely worth picking up if you can find it, and a must try for any barleywine lover.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - This beer pours a semi-cloudy dark orange copper color, that shines bright when held to the light. It has a 1-finger off-white head on it, that left little specs of lacing on the glass.

S - This smells of wheat and has a big caramel sweetness to it. I am also getting some notes of maple syrup, booze, and it also has an earthiness to it.

T - Tastes of lightly roasted malts and wheat. There is a lot of caramel sweetness here, as well as an earthy hop characteristic. There are also notes of syrup, vanilla, raisins, and other dark fruits. There is a sort of strong alcohol presence her as well. The finish is boozy and sweet.

M - It has a medium-full body and low carbonation. It has a chewy quality to it. It is sweet, but not cloying. There is some alcohol warmth as well. I think this is a good mouthfeel for this style.

D - Pretty good drinkability. It is a sipper for sure, but it goes down pretty easy. It is sweet, but not too sweet. It drinks pretty much like a barleywine. There is quite a big alcohol presence, and that mixed with the sweetness drug down the drinkability a bit for me. All in all, I really like this beer, and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. This was my first wheat wine, and I wish more breweries would make this style. I would for sure try this beer again.

Pours a copper/amber with basically no head, only a few floating bubbles. Slight chill haze.

Citrus hops nose, strong wheat notes blended with caramel malts, slight yeast and alcohol aromas as well.

Wheat leads strong, yeast flavors, some malt flavors, citrus hops, barleywine familiarity, bitter finish, alcohol not very noticable suprisingly, medium duration of flavor.

Medium body, oily, low carbonation

Very drinkable, great example of a wheat wine, but not an every day beer (as per the style)

notched 2010 on the bottom of the label

pours clear semi cloudy copper orange with a 1+ finger head that left some spotted lacing

smell is a sweet fruity hops and malt

taste is much of the same - this is a very fruity but not overly sweet brew - i get the wheat that adds that banana flavor then the hops citrus floral that mesh so well with the barley malt

mouthfeel is a bit thick and heavy with good carbonation very smooth and creamy

drinkability - this is a style that needs to be explored more by me and breweries - this is only my fourth wheatwine and it is very good and just different enough from barleywines to make me want to buy everyone that pops up on store shelves around me

A big flavorful beer for a good price. Poured a slow to emerge 3/4" head with lots of tiny slow bubbles rising through a hazy red body. Quite the rich taste with caramel and malt (barleywine indeed) and with a hoppiness added comparable to many IPAs. The lady of the house loved it too and that's saying something.

Smuttynose's Wheat Wine is very interesting.

Pours a golden color, like a lighter lager yellow.

Smells are intense with this wheat wine, and it smells just like its name. Almost a whiff of wine and ale. Exciting scents.

Taste is smooth, yet somewhat sour. Plenty going on. You'll want to take another taste immediately.

High ABV makes it tough to drink much off.

A curious beer - big, heavy, difficult to drink and yet rather interesting.

Pours a deep, clear amber with a very small, late-developing head that produces a small fizz of light tan head and no lacing whatever. The smell is strong, syrupy and with a distinct tang of copper, like licking an old penny. The flavor is quote sweet and almost soda-like, with a big round bite of wheat and a rich, plummy syrup, with strawberry and tropical fruit. The finish has that same odd old copper metallic tang. The booze is strong but muddled, like a fruity tropical drink - it almost has the feel of a mai-tai, with a candyish finish.

This is a 2009 bottle (750 ml). The 2010 was released in December, so this may be just over a year old. The website calls this vintage 11.4% abv. Has a $6.99 sticker on it.

Appearance: Poured hard into a snifter. A short lived head forms and quickly fades to bubbles. Leggy lacing forms and falls with each sip. The body of the beer looks outstanding. Perfectly clear dark orange to almost red and it appears to create its own light. It shines like a gemstone.

Smell: Fruity and richly malty. Not overly complex. I don't smell much of the 11.4%. There's a light sweet citrus and herbal hops note too.

Taste: Lots of alcohol bitterness and burn. Sweet malt with caramel and fruity flavors. Hops taste herbal, slightly grassy, but not in a bad way. Hard to differentiate hops bitterness from alcohol bite here, but both act to balance the heavy malt load. Tangy finish.

Mouthfeel: Its very smooth and thick. Velvety. Light on the carbonation.

Drinkability: I really like this beer, and wheatwines in general. Seems like some breweries use a hefeweizen yeast and get some banana or bubblegum esters, which this one does not. Tasty, but a little too boozy.

Pours a nice hazy orangish reddish color with a thick off white head with visible yeast in the glass. The aroma is of caramel malt with a sweet sugary smell along with dark fruits and a slight hop presence along with a slight alcohol smell. The taste has a caramel malt backbone with a big sweet flavor. There are hints of dark fruit and ctirus with a touch of hops and alcohol. The mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is okay the taste is a little sweet. It is a so so easy drink.

Poured into a snifter. Interesting to find out that this is an 09 vintage even though I just bought the case last week. Thus, this review is right around the beer's one year birthday.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed dark orange amber color. One finger of creamy beige head that doesn't last long. The high ABV doesn't help with the retention, but the wheat should. Anyway, touches of lacing. Some small and medium sized yeasties throughout.

4.0 S: The aroma is simple, yet elegant. Deep caramel with a sugary cake icing component. Fruitiness mainly in the form of plum. Smells a lot like a barleywine with the only distinction being a soft neutral wheatiness. There's a touch of booze in there, but it's soft for the ABV.

4.0 T: The wheat comes through stronger in the taste in what only can be described as extra wheatiness. Caramel and toffee, raisin and tobacco, plum and prune. Some herbal hop flavor with a slight, though aggressive, bitterness. Distinct alcohol flavor comes through giving a leathery taste, almost like this was aged in a bourbon barrel.

4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Carbonation is on the lower end of moderate, good enough anyway. Slightly chewy, reasonably creamy, with a slight warming throughout.

4.0 D: It's a shame that no one gives a damn about wheatwines and only a handful of breweries make them. They're about as good as barleywines, which don't get enough respect either. Anyway, this is a solid beer. Not the greatest in any aspect, but good in them. Interesting booziness to this makes it almost taste like a "training whiskey" which is very nice for me since I can only handle whiskey well in limited concentrations.

Another beer received from neorunner in the blind beers BIF. 2009 edition. Recommended glassware is a chalice, but unfortunately I don't have one. Into my Bruery tulip it goes.

The liquid that glugs out of the bottle is thick and viscous, a gorgeous deep sunset orange that's slightly hazy. A creamy yet miniscule cream-colored head pops and fizzles away quickly, leaving just a tiny ring in its wake. Some leopard-print lace remains on the glass as I drink.

This aroma is interesting. There seems to be some mint, a good amount of sweet caramel and some citrusy orange peel. Perhaps even some mild toasty bread in the back.

Very malt-sweet in the flavor. Rich with buttery caramel and overripe oranges, vodka and biscuits before a slightly drying finish.

The viscosity I noticed before translates into the mouthfeel nicely. A very light carbonation caresses the tongue and the body is a velvety medium. A hefty amount of alcohol is noticeable, in the flavor as well as moderate heartburn in the throat.

A fairly average wheatwine. The mouthfeel and flavor are decent, but nothing really stands out about this one.

2009 Bottle

A - Pours golden amber with a thin, white, bubbly head. Retention settles to a skim with slippery lacing.

S - Sweet smelling with a boozy quality. Some fruity qualities with hints of something that almost smells like cherries.

T&M - A very "big" feeling beer; with a fluffy quality characteristic of having a good dose of wheat. Sweet and fruity flavored alcohol is palatable. Carbonation is very minimal, but the alcohol combined with a light hop presence cuts through the thick malt and sweetness a bit. Malts are heavy feeling, and take on a sugary-sweet, caramel and honey type quality.

D - This is a thick, sweet, big beer, but very tasty and enjoyable. A sipper for sure, but delicious and complex.

2007 Vintage. Big thanks to ShogoKawada for the bottle.

Heavily hazed body. The color resembles a peach, shades of bright orange, brown and reds layer themselves in the glass. Modest oatmeal colored head does not last long, though a decent amount of lacing is left.

Grain malt aroma is dominate. Time has really smoothed out the aroma. Lighter caramel is set behind. Subtle dried pineapple aroma reminds me of an old ale or English barleywine.

Sweet malt flavor stands out on the tongue. Much the same as the aroma the caramel flavor is light. The wheat lends a grainy, bready quality to the flavor. Candied pineapple flavor transitions into a fig flavor as the beer moves across the palate. The fig flavor increases with warmth. A very slight molasses flavor also begins to show. Slight honey flavor lingers midpalate. Light grassy hops hit the back of the tongue providing an excellent counterpoint to the malt. No booziness can really be noted in the flavor. A slight warming sensation is noted but for a beer of this ABV I would certainly expect more.

Medium bodied. The carbonation is subdued though appropriate. Slight sweetness linger but not for long, the finish is a bit drier than I would expect.

I am once again impressed by Smuttynose. A tremendous beer that has aged rather gracefully. In my opinion this one still has legs, I would wager it is still tasty in another couple years. Very smooth for a higher abv beer. Flavors are pleasant, never overwhelming.

A: amber with reddish tint.darker than I expected for some reason.

S: sweet and bready. Little bit of hops and maybe a slight spicy note in there.

T: sweet,wheaty, a bit of dark malt ,with grapefuit hop flavor in the middle. A dark sweetness lingers at the end.

M: medium thickness, a little syrupy.

D: the alcohol isn't too strong and had a unique and interesting taste,but a bit sweeter than I like.

2008 vintage poured from a 22oz bottle into my Dogfish snifter. It poured a deep caramel color with a little bit of red highlights to it. It started with a moderate frothy white head to it that retreated to the edges of the glass after a minute or so. It left some decent lacing as I drank it as well.

The aroma shows a lot of sweeter malt flavors to it with the wheat really coming through. Caramel also plays a pretty big role in the maltiness. I can tell it's pretty hoppy as well with the amount of grapefruit citrus present. Very appealing aroma overall, I love the way the malty and sweet wheat flavors mix with the hoppy aromas.

The taste starts off with the sweeter wheat malt coming through along with some of the citrusy grapefruit flavors. Towards the middle I start to get more of the caramel playing a role in it. The finish brings some hop bitterness mixed with the the malty wheat flavors and a small hint of roasty flavors. A little of the bitterness lingers. Very flavorful and relatively balanced beer overall. the wheat really mixed nicely with the hoppy flavors.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with carbonation being below average. Drinkability is good, I really liked the flavors it brought. it was a very flavorful beer overall with some bold flavors to it. They all came together nicely though and made a great beer. I'm really starting to love this style of beer, and this was another very good version of the style.

22 oz bomber from Cuzco in the Blind Beer BIF #3, thanks Nate for some great beers.

Poured into my MJ tasting glass. Pours a medium copper with a spritzy tan head that doesn't last. Leaves a little lacing on the glass.

Aromas of sweet caramel malt and grapefruit hops. Leans more toward the hops. Actually, the malt character is a little more toffeeish, than caramel.

First sip is like the aroma, sweet malt with a big hop bitterness, citrusy, grapefruit. Malt flavor is toffeeish. Long finish with a focus on the grapefruit hops. No noticeable alcohol bite. Very much like a barleywine, american version. Wheat character doesn't really come through, masked by the hops.

Mouthfeel medium, sweet, a little puckering bitterness. Big chewy malt. Very well carbonated. Expected more of a prickle based on the pour, but no carbonic bite.

Drinkability is very high. Very nice beer. Alcohol makes its presence known about half-way through the first glass. This is a big beer that deserves to be shared.

This is the 2009 batch poured from a bomber.

A-Gold to almost amber, no head, "big" bubbles, very few slow carbonation

S-Not sure, sort of chemical-like, almost band aid-ish

T-Fruity and malty, very pleasant. Alcohol is noticeable but doesn't detract.

M-Medium body, almost wine like

D-It goes down easily. Each time I drink it, I want another sip.

Pours dark orange with little head and some floaties present. Smells sweet, wheaty, and like golden molasses, with some hop and spice notes and a touch of alcohol. The taste is, thankfully, much less sweet. Firm and earthy with some good spice notes, some nice piney/spicy hoppiness, and a honeyed finish. Firm and almost chewy in the mouth, this is obviously strong, but the alcohol itself is fairly well hidden. The high hop levels help to camoflauge the sweetness, and overall make this beer seem pretty big for the style.

This here is a 2006 bottle picked up in a trade back in 07', thought I'd drink her.

Poured from the bomber into an oversized snifter off a rigorous pour producing a thin film around the collar. I little fork beating and a get a misc bubble cap with no real head. Cap lasting a good amount of time. Color is a pale burnt brown.
Aroma is pretty darn sweet with caramel delight, tiny amount of alcohol warmth on the nose. Little bit of wheat bready funk. My roommate says its smells of virgins pussies and the texture is as smooth as the nipples of a young woman who has never before felt the loving caress of a man...which I think is a good thing.
Damn, this is good. Caramel sweetness throughout, burnt caramel too with a big wheat twang. Hops still exist, small earthy bitters finishing with chocolate grain and distant heat.
Mouth feel is pretty darn slick, carbonation is somewhat dead though. Its past date, I get that, haven't had this fresh to do a comparo, but it is fairly flat currently.

Good beer, but its flat now. Would love to have a fresh bottle.

strong malt aroma, sweet and light.

tastes strong and sweet, a bit hot with earthy hop flavor.

full body is thick and chewy

well carbonated but little head

not the most drinkable beer, too cloying and strong and out of balance.

2007 Vintage. Served from tap into a shaker. Poured a murky red-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of BOOZE, caramel, molasses, and sweet malt. The flavor was of sweet malt, caramel, and alcohol. It had a light feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this one wasn't that bad. Usually I don't enjoy Wheatwines so that is saying A LOT. The taste on this one was definitely a lot better than the smell for sure. The taste of it was nicely balanced with the alcohol by some of the sweetness from the caramel and molasses notes. The aroma was just plain harsh to put it lightly. I could see this one aging for a bit longer myself.

Poured 2008 bomber into snifter.

A - Pours a brilliant rich and bright mahogany and where the light shines through it is a bright ruby to brick red. Poured a solid 1.5 finger eggshell head that dissipated quickly to a solid coating that stuck around to leave a spotty lacing. The beer runs down the glass like wine when it leaves the "legs" on the glass.

S - A lot of sweet toffee and buttery aroma with some grassy and earthyness there. There is a hint alcohol hotness that you can pickup through the nose as well. I thought this would have been well gone by the 2, almost 3 years of cellaring.

T - Sweet toffee malt up front with some alcohol burn to follow that is cooled down with a Caramel definitely left as the beer goes down. Some hop bite after but not much but just enough to give this beer some balance.

M - Very light mouth feel and a bit hot. Medium carbonation and there is a coating left all over leaving you wanting more.

D - A bomber is probably it for the night. Maybe follow it by an Imperial Stout 12oz. Heat after 2-3 years was a bit surprising. I wish I could get my hands on another '08 and leave it for a few more years. I guess I'll have to get a '10 and leave it for 5 years or so.

Another one thanks to Johnmichaelsen. This is a style I like a lot, but see few examples of. Poured into 16oz goblet. Poured a slightly reddish amber, with just a thin cap of khaki head that very low retention but decent lacing. This was much darker in color than others of the style I've had.

There was certainly a strong sweet, alcohol aroma, much more like a Barleywine than the other Wheatwines I've tried. The aroma was pleasant, just not what I expect in the style. The flavor was also much more like a Barleywine than a WW. Not light, crisp and strong, but full, solid and strong.

The body was thick, sticky, sweet and full. Drinkability was very good for a beer this size. Overall, this is a very nice brew, just not what I expect from the style. This is the type of review I have problems with. This is a very good beer, but not what I was looking for. This style is generally not so thick and, sweet and is crisper and lighter. Worth trying when you can, just don't expect to get what the says it is.
