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 amber with white head. Nose is a stinging booze, caramel. Maple vanilla in taste...waiting for some barrel but other flavors over power. Age might be in order. Good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5338) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
From the February 2014 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a golden color with lots of tiny floaters and a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bourbon, coconut, bread and booze. The flavor was tangy and boozy caramel, honey, bread and coconut. Long tangy coconut, honey and bread finish. Full bodied and syrupy. Nice.

5 ounce taster glass at the Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids. Sweet Repute is a bulldozer. The aroma was amazing, comprised of bourbon, sweet maple syrup, hot liquor, and a fresh baked rhubarb pie’s sugars and crust. The taste was really assertive: boozy, bourbon loaded, dark fruits and maple syrup. This is a sipper beer, approached best in moderation. 5 ounces was plenty. Medium bodied and low in carbonation. Overall Sweet Repute is good for a quick dance, but she’d wear you out in no time if you went out with her for the night.

Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, bourbon and butterscotch. Full and chewy body with flavors of maple bourbon, doughy malt, herbal hops and a bit of vanilla. The finish is boozy with a sweet maple and oaky bourbon aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

750 mL bottle. Pours orange amber with a slightly off-white head and small drifting particles. Sweet bourbon and maple sugar aroma, caramel, butterscotch, hoppy hints. Flavor is strong on the bourbon with a sweet maple syrup backup. Rather tasty.
