3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromatic hoppy orange goodness resonates with malt, cloudy orange in colour, sporting a small custard head. Taste starts with a big hop kick, has a fine malt backbone. Full bodied, amazingly bitter. Terrific! Thanks rudolf!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Big Time. Served in a short snifter. Pours a warm, hazy amber with dense, creamy off-white head. Light aroma of wheat and bread. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not complex, but tasty none the less.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep murky dark amber with orange highlights. Thick moussy tan head that leaves dense sheets of lace on the way down. Light floral sweetness that seems somehow to come from the wheat rather than a hop, but I really have nothing to base that on. Rich, thick, creamy body with just the right underlying hint of carb. Dense caramel sweetness on the mid-palate. Interesting molasses and pepper notes on the back of the tongue, followed by some hollow resin. Simple but really lovely.

Bottle sampled on 8/26/06, thanks to acertain via JHop: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a nicely-lacing wispy white head. Aroma has a nice, sweet wheaty presence with good light fruity undertones and fresh citrusy hops. Body starts with a sweet caramel malt and toasty wheat flavor with good fresh grapefruity hoppy balance with a warming finish. A nice wheatwine.

Bottled. Hazy amber coloured. Loads of toffee in the aroma and some malts. Sweet flavour with notes of fruits toffee and alcohol. Some hoppiness in the finish. Too sweet for me.

Pour is hazy golden with a big bubbled lightly off white head...smell is strongly hopped with tons of grapefruit and pine...I guess I dont’ quite get what a wheatwine should be like...seems more American Strong Ale-ish...very hoppy flavor with tons of soap, grapefruit, and pine with a faint but present malt backbone of dry cookies...slow hoppy finish...
