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.

Grapefruit esters on first aroma. Very tropical taste. Pineapple perhaps. Warming alcohol taste. Smooth finish and crisp hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (4169) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Cotton candy, apricots, lemon zest aroma. Hazy amber, huge billowy yellow head. Dry, apricot and lemon zest. Lemongrass finish. Weizen yeast is obvious, but there’s a surprising amount of hops.

Beachmaster (185) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bomber into a tulip. Pours a rich gold, with a big white head that slowly fades into a disc on the surface. Nose is a faint aroma of yeast. Taste is light malt, followed by hints of earth and spice. Creamy mouth feel with a long finish. Quite tasty.

4 oz pour on draft at Rustico Alexandria. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, citrus, wheat, white wine. Tastes of citrus, wheat, booze, caramel, some malt, floral notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty nice.

DocLock (8093) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
750 cc from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours clear, dark straw with well-retained off-white head. Nose is fruity, floral white peppery spicy. Tastes fruity, with hops, florals, and berry notes as it warms. Well hidden alcohol, and a super smooth finish. This is a beer you’ll crave more and more as you sip it.

Voodoo (380) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Poured a hazy golden color with a huge white head.....aroma of spiciness, a bit antiseptic notes......since I have to wait for the head to die down to taste give me a minute.......love this site, enjoying the New Year so far, I should really get some new pieces on the walls........ah, here we go. Taste is better than I’d hoped with the aroma, spice, citrus, clove, some booze cutting through, crisp finish with wood notes in the back end. Glad it was better tasting than the aroma let on.

lownote (131) - USA - JAN 1, 2015
Aroma is a light sweetness with a fair bit of hops, earthyish hops. Pours a straw color with a tiny bit of head into a goblet that quickly vanishes. Taste has a slight bit of zesty yeast, with bitterness coming later from some not super agressive hops. Taste is not as sweet as expected. Carbonation is sharp but light. Would like more. Thin mouthfeel.

HIGHB4LL (713) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at Killian’s. Appearance: finger white head, golden color, light cloudy. Aroma: fruity, spruce, citrus, floral. Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, light bitter finish, dry finish. Taste: sweet fruit and wheat with a very smooth and good transition into a slight funky tartness and some booze, ending slightly bitter. Overall, very complex and unique. Really enjoyed this beer.

commonshawn (477) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Tap at busters with commonmac and tank 7 smerud. Clear golden with small white head. Little aroma. Crisp and very tart. Alcohol taste with a light barley wine taste. Light fruit and some wine elements. Tartness might be a bit much, so I looked for better balance. Still good enough to take on the dance floor.

DuffMan (7138) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle, 2011 vintage, shared with friends. Hazy light orange, thick creamy light golden head. White grapes, bread, barley candy, soft cheese, light musty cork. Full bodied and sweet, with a gentle acidity. The hops have mellowed big time, but this retains a lovely flavour profile and is silky smooth. Beautiful.
