2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is a little malty with some nuttiness. Taste is a little muddled, like there is something mixed in with it. Odd.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours medium brown. Light tan head that dissipates to a long lasting film. Aroma of bread and spice. Flavor of caramel and toast with a bit of hop bitterness. Actually had an ice tea quality. Some lacing. Good medium palate. Very drinkable for something 10.9%. Bought this as a single and based on dating it is 2 years old. Held up pretty well, but would like to try fresh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Rich reddish amber pour with a small but dense head. Sticky caramel malt, nutty, bready, and a bit of alcohol burn (although I was shocked to see it was north of 10%). Not bad.

Wheat beers are not my #1 pick to drink but this beer I do enjoy. Pours woody, nearly clear brown with a tall, thick, tan head. Aroma is nutty with pecan hint. Actually, quite tasty...caramel malt, slight bitter... The 10.9 ABV is absolutely hidden. Quite enjoyable.....good stuff. Be careful how many you drink. This beer with catch up to you.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Unclerudy, thanks! Bottle looks like it might be older, but who knows. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Just a small ring of lace resides. Aromas of bread, yeast, spices, and alcohol. The flavor is watery and not very enjoyable. Bananna, sticky sugar, wheat, and a nice alcoholic burn make up most of this. Blech, gross. Here ya go drain, just what you want......
