Corked and caged 12.7oz bottle poured into a snifter. Been sitting in my basement for last 4 years since purchase. I have one more to sit on longer.

A- Pours a hazy amber with very little head. Yeast particles and fizzy bubbles are noted throughout the glass.

S- Sweet astringency in the nose, if that makes any sense. Not much here.

T- Sweet caramel opens up to some clove and an almost rye like spiciness.

M- Medium bodied, easy to drink though the alcohol is noted.

This is a respectable wheatwine. Unfortunately I didn't drink one fresh to compare, as this is over 4 years old.

L: Pours hazy amber under a ½” cream colored foam collar that gradually reduces to a thick, sticky film. S: Fruit smells tropical, guava or perhaps apricot spiced with clove and coriander. T: White bread, tropical fruit, coriander, clove banana, citrus, with a moderate hop accent. F: Medium to medium full body, medium low carbonation O: this has more wheat character than the 2011. Good Wheatwine.

Pours deep golden with some sediment. Little head.

Light caramel and honey in the nose. Some floral notes.

Medium body with more light honey. More fruity caramel notes some light grape characters. Hints of alcohol but it has mellowed from what I would have initially thought. Low carbonation with some yeast phenolic a and acetone. A sipper but easily sipped upon.

Chewier as It warms. More bready atributes. No hops to speak of but some spicy character. A tasty wheat wine for sure. I am not sure what a longer aging process would yield but this tasty and perfect for a cold night

A - Golden with red highlights, cloudy, with a moderate white head that fades quickly and provides very little lacing.

S - Strong alcohol thread, honey and maple sweetness, and buttery caramel notes.

T - Following the nose, caramel and wheat bread, alcohol and maple and fruity banana notes. Close narrows to two main notes: caramel and alcohol burn.

M - Sticky alcohol burn, but fairly light on its feet and doesn't club the drinker over the head, which at 11% ABV is a nice trick.

O - I really liked this wheatwine. The beer has aged well, and any sharp edges have smoothed and mellowed, meaning this is a silky, sweet charmer.
