Draft. Light hazy copper with thin beige head. Aroma of alcohol, some phenols and butter notes, with a light smokiness. Medium/heavy body, a heavy caramel sweetness, light smokiness, with a sweet finish. A moderate alcohol warmth.

Growler purchased a few months back from the brewery store. Copper in color, slightly dark. Some white head on this but just a little. Malty nose with hints of higher alcohols warming my nose hairs. Smooth, low carbonation allows the flavors to really coat the tongue. Malt, wheat, sweetness, a hint of caramel. Yummy.

nimbleprop (5017) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange with some creamy, white head. Nose of bubblegum, light smoke, clove, wheat malt, earthy. Flavor is very sweet, candied yams, smoke, bubblegum. Boozy but decent finish. Very unique. I thought the smoke was a good compliment.

adnielsen (9287) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours an orange appearance with an off white head. A fair amount of butter in the nose along with some brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruity notes. Flavor wasn’t a whole lot better with more diacetyl along with some berry notes and a fair amount of booze. Fitgers has become one of my must-visits for GABF but this one was a big disappointment.

Orange with a foamy head. Nose is a pungent wheat, hoppy, caramel and boozy caramel scent. Taste is a strong wheat, hop, caramel and bourbon flavoring. For a strong beer, surprisingly mellow body though it’s a very strong tasting beer. Different, but I like it!

phaleslu (6616) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Pours a semi-hazed dark orange-gold color with a small head that doesn’t amount to much. Huge barrel notes here: caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and bourbon are inescapable. Some dates and raisins. Oak. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. A bit one-dimensional but that dimension is damn tasty.

MIBRomeo (2562) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2013
GTMW ’13 Hazy dark orange pour. Aroma of bourbon and wood and not much else. Avg palate. Flavor follows the aroma. Well ballanced and quite good. Looking forward to trying it again w/ a bigger sample.

ryanfolty (1872) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2013
On tap at Winterfest 2013. Dark orange pour with limited head. Caramel, toffee, dark fruit and bourbon in aroma and taste.

Steasy66 (892) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Amber, no head. Nose is big and buttery, toffee and a hint of citrus. Rough and boozy at the front, big wheat fades to sweet bourbon. Really nice wheat wine.

pantanap (3365) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2010
sampled at GTMW 2010... pours a dark caramel brown with a thin light tan head... smooth toffee and a growing dark fruit presence coming through in both the nose and flavor. a little bit of heat but this turned out to be pretty nice overall.
