COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not always a good thing when your reputation precedes you. But the complexity of this powerful wheat wine will give it a Sweet Repute no matter where, when or how your paths meet. Our brewing team painstakingly choreographed each layer of this beer’s characteristics, starting with a healthy wheat and roasted malt base and adding clean, fragrant hops. It’s one-hundred percent barrel aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels and bourbon barrels over the course of sixteen months, then blended using carefully calculated ratios for the ultimate final product. The resulting 12.6% ABV liquid pours a bright warm russet with a stubborn ivory head and an intoxicatingly sweet nutty aroma. Take your time allowing the layers of flavors to unfold… Because it’ll only get better.

Pours a clear amber with a light white head. Booze and whiskey are all I got off the nose. Literally tastes like a shot of whiskey was poured. Luckily, I like whiskey. Sweet flavor. Medium body. Medium Carbonation. Draft - Leon’s - Decatur, GA

Very good smell. Really good taste. Has quite the kick but still very good and balanced. Actually what you would look for in this style of beer. Really good taste and feel.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Pretty good beer. I would say it has a bit too much of an alcohol burn. Would like to try it with a little age on it.

By far, the most hard alcohol tasting beer Ive had so far. Pours a light amber. Has a sweet bourbon and maple aroma. Taste is very strong with dark liquor (bourbon, whiskey), malt, and dark fruits. Aftertaste is similar to a shot of whiskey. A strong drink, but worth the experience.

Bottle, with thanks to Sean! Pours hazy amber orange with some big honking floaties in there. Large beige head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is very bourbon forward, with sugary notes of caramel and maple in there as well. Flavor is bourbon, maple sugar, bourbon. Bourbon. ummm, bourbon. Medium sweet, lightly astringent from the wood, some of that weird what I have come to recognize as maple bitterness on the finish. Full body and quite a nice creamy mouthfeel. Pretty fucken hot. Bourbon. more bourbon. What I am trying to say here, is that this beer is quite lacking in nuance or complexity. Bourbon, maple syrup, seltzer water. Boom.

This pours a cloudy, amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is filled with sweet bourbon and maple. The texture is thin, delivering a sweet taste with hints of bourbon and maple. Surprisingly interesting that delivers a unique taste.

Sweet repute pours a half cloudy light orange with an ivory head that lasts a good while and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is vanilla, maple and oak. The flavor is vanilla, maple, oak and a light citrus and floral. The high abv is hidden rather well. Overall this is an amazing beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2014
This one poured a cloudy darker orange color with a white head. Aroma was of a good bit of bourbonj, alcohol, wheat, and oak. Flavor was vanilla, oak, dough, and lots of bourbon. Decent big BA wheat wine, but nothing special.

Bottle from Bert’s pours a deep golden/amber color with a good sized bubbly white head that persists forever leaving spotty lace on the way down. Aromas of dark caramel, vanilla, wood, nuts, a bit of spice and an odd but enticing pineapple coconut thing going on. The flavor is maple and dark sugars with a tart tropical fruit flavor with a spicy wheat edge and bits of vanilla, alcohol, and bourbon oak. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. I enjoyed sipping on the one for most of the afternoon. Its and odd but enticing brew.

Beardaxe (169) - - JAN 11, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Murky light brown appearance with little head. Bland aroma of some maple and not much else. Harsh mouthfeel. This a bit too carbonated and needs to even out a bit. The flavor is likewise disappointing. The maple is always present, but never exciting. Little bourbon flavor and only mild oak. This tastes like a failed clone of backwoods bastard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
