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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Batch # 2010-1 A - Pours a turbid glowing orange with a milky wet head. S - Dank wheat, mild but pungent hops, citrus peel and sugary fruit, pears, over ripe apricots, clove, white pepper, hints of alcohol. A potent perfume floral scent comes out as it warms. T - Starts off with lemon citrus. Sugary apricots and various stone fruits, doughy wheat bread resides under the citrus hops. The hops cling to the sides of the tongue and wick away any sweetness, yet the fruit esters stay. Finishes dry with an herbal and almost minty character. M - Super soft and creamy, heavy side of medium. Flows across the palate nicely. Very complex. There’s a rawness but it’s weaved together in a delicate way. It’s fruity, raw, mellow, sweet, dry, bitter, and much more. Serving type: bottle 08-20-2011

yngwie (16315) - 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

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.
