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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of byager. Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Refined spicy nose, a little perfumy with a sophisticated barrel character. Rich body, strangely overcarbonated which doesn’t really suit a barley Wine. Overripe fruit, subtle and sophisticated barrel notes with some great aroma hops. Ends a little bitter. Nice one. 250113

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle, 75cl corked. A golden beer, mostly clear, but with some micro floaties. Off-white finger thick head. The aromais on the fruity side, with white sugar, some grass and hay. There’s a decent bitterness in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and nicely carbonated, with some grass and hay in the mostly fruity flavor. Some white sugar too, but not in a sweet way. Lasting fruity finish. More of a tripel than a wheat wine this one. A decent one though. 160102

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Bottled 750ml (BB 01/2009)
Deep golden color, small white head, some lace. Fruity, a bit woody aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity (mango, apple) with some alcohol, wood and light hoppyness. A bit glueish. Tasting more like a strong Belgian ale than a barley wine.
