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.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features graininess, berries, caramel and red-hot ethanol. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of big bourbon bitterness and heat, and gooey caramel sweetness. Finishes bittersweet (more sweet than bitter) with plenty of lingering alcohol warmth. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
