Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Always wanted to try this one... Nice big vanilla whiskey bourbon barrel aroma, but no bite or burn. Works well with the bready, biscuity rich flavors of the wheat wine. A light, orange citrus hop aroma. Clear golden orange color. Smooth, kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Nice long vanilla, lightly spicy bready wheaty rich aftertaste. Moderate sweet taste, light alcohol warmth. Tasty, big complex wheat wine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves some lace streaks. Aroma of vanilla, wheat, oak, toffee, bubblegum, and dried apricot. Flavor of vanilla, tea, wheat, lemon, and oak. Light-Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a tea-like mouthfeel. Starts sweet and finishes earthier. Odd but interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat malts, bread, orange citrus, light vanilla and wood. The body is very light and watery. Surprising that it is 10 %. I’m not really a fan of this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a transparent light golden orange with white lacing. Smells solid; like Oberon with a heavy but pleasant bourbon influence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of fruit, citrus, bourbon, and vanilla. It’s a hazy amber with a two finger white head that has good retention and lacing. The flavor starts with fruit and citrus. The finish has light-moderate bourbon and vanilla. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, better than I expected.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Maduro pre-GTMW 2013. Hazy orange-tan. Thin glass rimming head. Probably the mildest bourbon barrel beer I’ve ever had. Smooth caramel on top of mellow wheat. Pretty nice beer. Smooth and easy.
