3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Big Time. Pours murky orange-copper with thin cream colored head. Aroma is surprisingly floral, backed up by a healthy dose of caramel and a dollop of jam. Taste: although this is sweet on the tongue throughout, the floral hop bitterness is aggressive, lingering long after each sip. Sweet caramel after acclimating some more, along with a bit of copper. Alcohol quite apparent, and the interplay between the alcohol and hops leaves the impression of black pepper in the finish. Palate: full body, syrupy texture, average carbonation. Overall: an aggressively hoppy wheat wine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours ruby copper with decent carbonation and nice lacing.
Smell fig, date, raisin, slight hop and wheat presence, maybe citrus, dominated by red fruit.
Taste sweet pine and red fruit, alcohol toward the tail, burns on the way down. Silky but leaves unpleasant astringent after taste. Cherry and a bit of ash.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is light orange colored, and appears transparent. The head is small, fades quickly, and leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma offers malt, butterscotch, caramel, alcohol. The flavor is of butterscotch candies soaked in alcohol. I happen to enjoy the flavor of butterscotch, albeit infrequently and in small quantities, so I did not find this beer as unsatisfactory as the other guys who shared this bottle. The feel is thick and syrupy, with moderately low carbonation and present alcohol. Overall, an ok brew, but I don’t think this is the number one wheatwine.
