COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John Barleycorn’s cousin wheat, the great staple crop of Middle America. Wheat wines are a somewhat recent stylistic development, akin to barleywines in strength, but brewed with a large portion of wheat malt, which provides a soft mouthfeel to balance the big body of these warming brews. We add a generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops, and age the beer on both French and American oak, resulting in a beer that opens up with a warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, adding subtle Sauvignon Blanc notes before rounding slowly to a dry, oaky finish. This is a perfect beer for sharing with friends and family as we gather together for the fall and winter holidays. Pairs well with aged cheeses or seasonal squash and pumpkin dishes.

Bottle: Pours a glowing orange copper color with a large, frothy beige head. Aroma of dry florals and grassey, rather indiscriminate. Tastes floral and sort of abrasive. There is a real grassey/dandelion/soapy thing going on that burns my tongue. I’ll let it warm and see if that helps... it does, the wheat comes forth to mellow out the earlier brash florals. A little dry and some faint spices try to come through, but still a little odd for my taste. Maybe its the wood coming through or the strong hallertau presence... just not quite up to par.

Pour is hazed ruddy amber with a big (overly so) off white head...smell is lightly fruity and sweet with some pepper and oak too...taste is sweet and slightly syrupy with lots of light caramel and apple flavors...nice mouthfeel...I expected this to be much richer than it was...it almost works during the summer...

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Poured amber with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of wheat and clove spice. The flavor was much the same (clove and wheat) with yeast presents also. Medium body and tingly carbonation.

TheEpeeist (3561) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2010
25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with swirling bits and beige icing. Nose is yeasty banana, clove and musty plastic. Almost syrupy with a sharp tang finishing like a seltzer. Taste is honey, ginger and wheat. Slightly herbal with some grassy bitterness. Very much like a trippel. Got into this a bit more as i worked through the bottle.

Bottle from eric "the most interesting man in TX"...Shared at SL. Cork shot it self off, lol... Light orange color. Lots of carbonation... Monster head that took a minute to settle. Taste is fruity? Apples, peaches?? wheat and some bready maltiness. Nice sipping beer. Texture was a little over-carbonated but still smooth. Nice beer, thanks ericandersnavy.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. too boozy, tasted like a rotten pear.

Oily and rich palate, juicy and buoyant hops, some wood notes, but overall I have never really enjoyed Hallertau hops and I thought the finish here was a little rough. My friends seemed to like it, however, so all’s good.
