its hard to be too critical of a beer thats seven or eight years old now, i mean, how long did anyone really expect this to hold up? interestingly enough, we had it side by side with the 2009, which had taken on a cool funky sour lambic-esque yeast character, probably by mistake, but i loved what it became. this one just tastes old to me, oxidized through and through, but still sweet from the wheat malt, with a distinctive honey flavor, powdered sugar, and earthy tones, tree bark, red apple, and booze for miles. the wheat in here seems to age a little less well than a good barley based beer in the same style might, more fragile, although the body it provides has held up pretty well. its not spoiled or rotten or anything, its just really old. the alcohol seems exposed among the relative lack of complexity or grain depth, and it drinks sort of monotone and weighty. it is always fun to drink beer this old though, you never know what you will get, and our little side by side with this and the 20009 prove that! a fun experiment, and i would love to try this one fresh, but at this age, it hasnt retained much value...

Shared by cmrillo during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! 2010 Vintage! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, caramel hop, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, caramel, caramel hop, fruit, wood, and dark fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I really did not know what to expect from this one going into it, but was decently surprised with the flavor as it was quite enjoyable. The rest of the beer was good for the style, but didn’t really stand out. The touch of wood and dark fruit on the flavor was really what took this one to the next step compared to the aroma. Wouldn’t mind trying some other stuff from Two Brothers in the future based on this brew.

Thanks to Gary for picking this up for me on this travels, been holding onto this for awhile!

12.7oz bottle, caged and corked.

Pours a golden orange color, not much of a head and fades fast, no lacing, first pour had little sediment floating around.

Smell is full of yeasty beasty aromas, lots of light spicing as well, maybe coriander and clove, light fruity esters waft into the nose, slight funk to it which is a nice turn.

Taste has a nice balance of flavors, tons of interesting spicing is thrown at the taste buds yet none overpower the others, hint of sourness even plays a part, an old hop bitterness tries to cling around in the aftertaste, a nice amount of carbonation lends a creamy mouthfeel that is neither too sticky or sweet, there is no way this is 11.3% because there is not even the slightest hint of heat or alcohol.

Been sitting on this bottle for a while, finally getting around to drinking it. Tasted 10 August 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours medium amber, mostly clear, but with loads of little floaties despite a gentle pour. Big fizzy whitish head, decent retention and lacing.

Smell is big on the yeast, and with a strong wheaty-sweet aroma in the background. Quite potent, but smooth, gentle, and rounded.

Taste pops out much more, with a burst of light berry sweetness which gradually fades into a drying-out soft alcohol flavor. That sounds weird, but it's actually quite nice - smooth progression from medium-light and sweet to light and dry.

Mouthfeel is buoyant and fuzzy, with a lasting alcohol coating on the tongue.

Tasty wheatwine. Good all-around, though nothing about it really stands out. In the future, I think I'd share a bottle rather than drinking it all myself, as it got a bit old by the end.

A-I took great effort to pour this one so as not to rouse the yeast but there are little specks suspended in the beer anyways (could be hop particles). Pours a clear orange color with a very small white head that dissipates quickly.

S-I'm getting that skunky green bottle hop smell from this one and it doesn't really fade. Also, some rich barley and nutty wheat hints.

T-Rich nutty wheat with a bit of clove and banana.

M-Very smooth and full-bodied with pretty low carbonation.

D-While a departure from every other wheat-wine I've had; this one is solid on its own merits with the one exception being the poor choice of green bottle which leads to an undesirable note in the aroma.

I went to brunch at a local establishment (Owen and Engine) and tried several beers. I'm starting with the last, first.

This is the 2010 version, they must have cellared a keg. From my perspective, it only made it better.

When the server brought the 10oz tulip glass, I saw a hop hazed dark orange brew with about an inch of dense white foam. This dropped to about 1/4 of an inch and stayed that way through to the end, with lots of lacing and legs on the glass. A good whiff brought out the huge fruit smell. Lots of banana; followed by pear, apricot, clove and some black pepper. Tastes like it smells, with a sweet intensity that lasts through the draught, and caramel and malt. I really didn't get any bitterness, just balance, and you wouldn't know this had any alcohol except for the warm feeling as it slides down your throat. My wife, who doesn't like beer in general, stated "she could drink this." I didn't let her, of course, someone had to drive home.

I liked this beer. A great example of a wheatwine, and if you can find, or have, a bottle of the 2010, cellar it for a while longer.
