From Chicago trip 2 years back. American strong characteristics with orange hop flavour, still hoppy flavours in the finish, and to some extent in the nose. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared a bottle with some dorks. Aroma is mild with slight oak, toffee, and sweet malt. Pours deep blond with heavy carbonation. Taste is mild with nice grain notes, wheat, caramel, and a mild oak finish. Not very strong tasting but certainly a perfect balance of tastes. Itís the sort of wheat wine you could drink a whole bottle of and not notice the 9.5%. Would try again but would probably be equally underwhelmed.

[Bottle] Light orange in color. Fizzy, but lasting white head. Hazy with suspended floating yeast. Wheat malts, sweet grains and light lemongrass in the nose. Dough, citrus zest, white wine and floral notes in the taste. Yeasty phenols in the finish. There is a lot going on in this one. Tasting notes from 2012.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-23-2011 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer forms a medium sized fizzy head that mostly diminishes, transparent golden body, floaties, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, oak, wheat, pine, grassy hops, sweet, and tropical fruit. The taste is sweet, oak, bitter, malt, fruity, hops, and a long dry finish. The mouthfeel is spritzy and this beer is medium bodied. This is a sipping beer at 9.1%ABV.

3/5/2014. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours amber color with a white head. Aromas of sweet fruit, caramel, malt, grapes. Flavors are somewhat sweet at first, but with bitter hops following through. Very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from, dammit, I forget, anyway, good aroma, sweet. Toasted wheat, oak/ vanilla, little citrus, on the orange side. 1st pour clean orange color, bid initial head that faded to a ring, no lace, just a steady ring. Sweet flavor. Medium body, oily creamy mouthfeel, sweet drying finish. Nice, I wonít say it overwhelms me, but itís good. Getting a fair amount of the wheat, but oak leads the way. Sometimes think Iím getting some yeasty spice, but think Iím crossing up some of the barrel. Worth a try.
