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.

alliance100 (912) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2013
750ml bottle - pours a rich copper with a slight orange hue. Little to no head. Big maple , toffee and bourbon aromas. Tons of vanilla bourbon sweetness and some warming alcohol. Finishes smooth with lingering sweetness and some caramel. The 12.6% abv is very well hidden . Not disappointed. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prufrockstar (1365) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from drfabulous in one of my first trades. Finally found a good time to open this. Weekend away with friends, late at night paired with cigars. Lovely dark pale pour with ample creamy head. Sweet and rich, with vanilla, molasses, candied citrus. Sweet through and through, but neither cloying nor over the top. Nice sipper, and there's a good synergy with this cigar -- I can see why people pair these together.
