2020 bottling 12% ABV

I had this sans nuts awhile back and loved it. This tastes similar for the most part. Very sweet and sticky throughout. Caramel and honey plus a huge barrel presence. The come on at the end, roasty and we'll incorporated. Not an improvement over the original, but a solid lateral move for sure.

12.7 ounce bottle, 2020 vintage, 12% ABV. Served in a Jackie O's snifter, the beer pours a mahogany brown color with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like vanilla, bourbon, honey, brown sugar, caramel and some nuttiness. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some oak, raisin and grainy flavors. Definitely a sweeter tasting brew! Mouthfeel/body is full, it's syrupy and a bit slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good Wheatwine, wouldn't mind picking up some more of these!

Wood Ya Honey nut variant is a darker than usual wheat wine. It is sweet, molasses and amber honey. There are random bursts of nut flavor (mostly walnuts).

12.7 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a Jackie O's snifter

This beer pours a mahogany color with rust colored highlights. It does not achieve much head.

The aroma is caramel, vanilla, and chocolate.

The flavor is caramel with a healthy dose of booze. I get a little vanilla.

Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel

I really enjoy wheatwines. This might be one of the best that I have tried. It is desserty, but the alcohol cuts the sweetness to let you know that it is a strong beer. It really hits the spot after working 8 hours outside on a cold winter day.

A- body is a gnarly cloudy brown color. Pours with a minimal bubbly head.

S- Nose is pretty complex and very sweet. Honey, nuts, bourbon, oak, bread. It's all in there.

T- Flavor is also wonderfully complex. Sweet sticky honey, nuts, and booze with a big bready backbone. Finish is sweet and boozy.

M- low to medium carbonation and a syrupy body...a hint of alcohol astringency but very smooth.

D- Jackie Os knocks it out of the park again. Wow. Fantastic beer from a style not used often.

I have had some extraordinary beers from Jackie O's. This is not one of them. I was hoping that it would be similar to Sweet Repute, which was outstanding. However, this one has neither the body nor the complexity of Founder's wheat wine. It's thin and the bourbon overwhelms the honey, the nuts--everything, really. Considering the high price, I can't recommend it.

12.7 oz bottle poured into a willybecher glass.

A:Small slightly off white super creamy head. Body is a murky brackish Carmel amber.

S: Lots of honey almonds dates figs light Jam smells.

T: the taste is not as large as the nose. Mostly muted alcohol a little figs and dates.

M: super soft low carbonation

O: it's an over the top beer with very little depth or character. Pretty much a disappointment in the lexicon of Jackie O's beers.

Pours a nearly clean, deep dark brown with the faintest khaki ring of head. Partially my fault for the murkiness due to pouring the dregs from the bottom of the bottle.

Smells of bourbon, vanilla, oak, and believe it it not, I clearly get the nuts. The honey not so much. Caramel drizzled nuts...Yes.

Tastes plenty nutty and dominated by sweet syrupy caramel and honey (which I usually find hard to detect). Bourbon and oak again, very much present.

Feel is rich, thick and oily, sweet and boozy, especially as it warmed.

Overall, an outstanding wheat wine, though I can't say I've had too many wheat wines. Would gladly have more if they tasted like this, typically. Cheers, and a big thanks to Corey!
