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.

MannyGoldberg (156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Keg at Rattle ’n Hum, NYC- 23rd January 2014. Orange amber colour with little retention. Aroma is bourbon with strong orange, woody notes. Taste is excessively sweet with oily notes. Booze not particularly well integrated. Massively disappointing.

Bomber at Jerry’s. Clear, but with debris, red-orange with good, creamy, white head, light wet lacing (barrel-aged) / Sweet nose of citrus, rind, bourbon barrel, hard caramel, hint of tobacco / Full body, sweet, fruity, chewy, some burn, excellent balance with some bitterness on the finish / Flavors of orange peel, fresh caramel, mellow bourbon barrel, grapefruit rind, maple syrup (power of suggestion?) / Founders has a way with these big boys.

(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy copper pour. Sweet bourbon and maple syrup aroma hiding some dark fruits and malts. Flavor is sticky fruits mixed with the maple syrup and bourbon. Smooth and really warming. Glad we have another one of these to try in a few years.

Sample from a bottle scored by my boss. Respectable amount of malt here that is OK, but not an exceptional BW.
