Growler generously provided by Al. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

Pours a tepid root beer without much life.

Ah, some sweet bourbon brownie batter on the nose. Chocolate cake, light icing, and cookies....sweet bourbony goodness. Man this smells nice.

There's just an illusion of the greatness of the nose..a flash, a tease, before being overwhelmed by a massive booze laden punch of alcohol and nail polish remover. My god is the finish harsh and chemical tasting. Maybe this is the wheat wine? Whatever it is this is a major disappointment. All booze, some barrel, and did I mention the booze? Hot and unpleasant.

Ditch the wheatwine, keep using these barrels, and tweak this recipe....a few bones here but the overall skeleton is a fail.

From a large shared bottle of DuClaw Divine Retribution #3

Lightly sweet and slightly hot.
Nice use of bourbon barrel aging.
Excellent lingering aftertaste dominated by flavors and aromas from the barrel aging.
