Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John Barleycornís 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

03.08.2016, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Big fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is mild fruity, dried fruits, bubblegum, minerals, citrus, yeast, grass, banana, almond, alcohol, oak, old cellar. Taste is slightly sour-ish boozy, weeds, citrus peel, alcohol, grass, minerals, bark, yeast, flowers, paper. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough.

ClubGonzo (5468) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Clear orange-hued golden body with some tiny particles floating around, big bubbly white head. Nose is wheat, white sugar, dried fruits, banana and hints of peaches, straw and raisins. Taste is red fruits, nuts, straw, white sugar, alcohol and hints of banana, wood and alcohol. Medium body, high carbonation. A bit boozy for the relatively low ABV; unorthodox flavor profile. Pretty decent, but not fantastic.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a good looking dark golden colored body, filled with small floaters and particles floating about in the glass and a tall really lacing and lasting off-white head. Like the aroma itís somewhat on the sweeter side. Soft traces of banana, itís nice and sweet fruity. A little closed in at first perhaps, canned sweet pear. Some white candied sugar and Belgian yeast. Like it. Itís a little above average on the carbonation and it has a good almost cloudy feeling in the mouth. Mild sweetish flavors also, again itís somewhat Belgian in the taste also. Stings you a little with the clear alcohol, but I donít find it disturbing. Kinda suits it. Yeah, I liked this. 04.08.2016

hman43 (1200) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2016
It pours dark golden with a fluffy slightly off white head. It has aromas of citrus highlighted by orange, a wheat profile with citrus fruit, vinous (white wine), and oak aromas. There are tropical fruit flavors, wheat, vinous (white wine) and oak. The combination of flavors is very complex and works well together. It has a chewy feel, not as heavy as traditional as expected. It has alcohol warming with a dry finish. Overall, it is a unique favorable beer complex in aromas and tastes that is slow drinking and quite tasty.

yngwie (16523) - 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. Thereís a decent bitterness in the mouth, itís 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

daje (4123) - NORWAY - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, june 27th 2015. Dark golden body with an evolving white head. Aroma is wheaty, alcohol, mild fruity. Spices and herbs. Taste of yeast esters, notably banana, clove, bubble gum, mild sweet with a light malt character, a nice mild sourness kicks in cleaning up for a drier fruity finish. Quite a nice one this.
