Draft at the gingerman Plano. Pours a light amber with a think white head. The aromas are white grapes, old closet. The mouthfeel is sweet and slightly dry with a heavy body. Cheers!

This poured a ruby red color with a small off white head. Aroma was lots of yeasty notes, light spices, and alcohol. Flavor was very sweet, light fruit,, yeast, seemed more belgian style to me, and alcohol. Meh.

Orlando, Fl - on tap at the Whole Foods Market. Dark copper pour, sticky off-white head, nice lacing. Pleasant aroma - some nuttiness and some pomegranate like fruitiness. Flavor has some fruitiness to it - not any particular type jumps out - similar to canned fruit cocktail. Some caramel notes, a bit of nuttiness and some booziness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice texture to it. Decent.

Color of Apple juice, calm head. Light sweet Arima of cereal, honey. And green grapes. Flavor stats a sweet tree sap, Amber malt and Darryl sugar. Aftertaste I’d alcohol, hops, and burn. Big smooth on the end.

Big old beer with a ton of aged character. Nice looking with a huge head and quite sweet. Lots of vanilla and cotton candy. Overbearing but still pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Fairly bright deep orange pour with a few sedimental areas for a nice, balanced appearance. Thin carbonation and an oily look at times. Nose is very sweet and honeyed, with a good dose of floral tropical notes injected. Mild herbal and spicey qualities accompany the yeastiness to taste, giving it an almost "Belgian barleywine" vibe crossed with wheatwine. A bit heavy and chewy in a sense, and overly sweet for the most part (even with the dry finish).

On the growler station at Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a linen white head. The aroma is extremely weak with a few notes sweetness and that’s about it. The flavor is a bit mild as well with light fruit, wheat and malt. Light-medium bodied, which bothered me a bit. Maybe I don’t understand the wheat wines, but I am used to barley wines and rye wines being rich and full bodied for the most part, and this was anything but. At 10% abv, the alcohol was very well hidden. In the end, probably not a style of beer that I care that much for.
