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.

bottle from my buddies in Wisconsin. Pour is a light caramwl. i really expected something darker from the descrtiption. head is a silk white with hues of yellow and it lasts like something bottle conditioned, but i know this is not. this smell reminds me of the first time i had a Beast from Avery. a fucking shit ton of sugar and caramel, just smells like a quick painfull death for a diabetic with a duty note underneath. wow, there is something balancing the sweetness here. sure, it is alcoholic sugar water make no mistake, but this is drinkable! and it is tasty too. some light pepper notes and just a bit of bitter citrus keep this cotton candy caramel, and toffee monstrosity in check. this is a fun sipper. i get a bunch of candy notes, then 5 minutes later some weird chocloate covered prune and candy orange flavors, then some lingering tobacco in that caramel flavor. glad i have tomorro off cause i am getting ripped and going to send some text messagres that are not worded in the most polite way. woohoo! fuck all y’all!

On tap at the Brick Store. Black color, with a thin, beige ring. Nose of coffee, light smoke, cinnamon, and syrup. Sweet, with a harsh roasted bitterness. Medium body, with a chalky mouthfeel. This is a harsh, overly roasted beer.

glennmastrange (2423) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Moderate cereal for the malt, perfume and cooked orange for the hops, dough and broth for the yeast, with hints of peach and alcohol. Head is almost nonexistant, with some spot of lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is murky, medium amber/orange with a thick amount of small particles. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes heavily sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, with a soft carbonation. Super fruity, super tasty, a well constructed Barley Wine.
