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.

One year old 750 ml bottle, about 3 months past is BB date. Pours clear apircot withe white, bubbly head. On the nose I get lots of peach, tropical fruit and some wheaty bubblegum notes, vanilla some hoppy citrus whiffs that remind me of Tank 7 farmhouse ale. Taste is peachy wheat malt, some astringency on the finish. Bitterness makes it drink a bit like Tripel. Nice beer, unique. Not much oak and the hops have surely faded. Wish I drank it fresh.
