DandyWolfFloyd (851) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Aroma - dry hops, alcohol, wheat, and Belgian yeast. Appearance - body has a cloudy ocher brown, with good nucleation. The white head is about 1" and slowly fades. Some lacing. Taste - has dry hops and a faint wheat taste, with a slight roast. Yeast is of a Belgian nature. Interesting, slightly confusing mix. Palate - medium body, slightly oily and yet smooth texture, average carbonation, the finish is abrupt, but the beer soaks the mouth with some ascorbic acid.

Bue à la pression. Ambrée foncée, mousse beige. Nez malté doux. Palais rond, corpulent et malté. Finale courte, pointe de houblon. Cool.

7.5%ABV. Wheat Ale Tapped out Amber. 18ºSRM. Nose has some sweet, beery, spicy aroma notes, cinnamon comes to mind. Slight woody, oaky aromas. There is a bit of sweet starch like a sweet potato. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has dark malts with rye bread, black bread, nuts with chestnuts and acorns. Alcoholic palate is well-represented. Hops come in a the end to prolong the finish a little, making it a medium bitter ride. Not sure the dry-hopping did very much for the flavor or the aroma.

HonusWagner (1910) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Weird and a little skunky, but it’s got some decent hop bitterness to it and the crisp maltiness works solidly despite the weird nose. I’ll hedge.

rondphoto (3337) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 21, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- The bottle says "Product of Belgium." Cloudy dark amber color, thick 1" beige head, sheets of lace. Taste is malt and wheat that grow sweeter through the swallow, then move to sharp carbonation along with mild dark fruit, followed by light hops. Big body for a wheat ale, but very easy to quaff. I like it.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Cheers! Pours cloudy, dark gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds rich pale bread, yeast, florals. Medium sweet flavor, quite hoppy, with notes of pine, some alcohol, dank grass. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish rich citrus fruits. Not bad overall.

Beersiveknown (4663) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 1, 2015
bottle at home from alesela (i’ve sat on this for too long probably
opaque dark burgundy brown with thin lacing, rich fruity nose, like a syrrah. Full bodied, wheat spices, stone fruit (think plums and nectarines) quite heavy, moderate carbonation, fruity & complex. Need to get hold of a fresh bottle but aged as it is a delicious drop.

Pours a brown body with a medium head. Faint and a little sour aroma. Nice and well balanced taste with a bit of sourness and barrel warmth.

Senap (537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2015
Ganska fyllig och rätt mycket av det mesta. Mörk och härlig färg. Helt okej, men inget toppbetyg.
