This winter warmer features a luscious fruity, caramel aroma with resinous hops and a malted toffee flavor followed by a warming finish. Drink a few of these and you’ll be saying "gunter glieben glauchen globen".

Vintage 2011, 4 years old; bottle from Firefly, Maple Ridge
Cloudy golden color with small head.The aroma is malty, but also very perfumy, a bit hoppy. Smooth mouthfeel; the malt profile is rather mellow, moderately sweet, it still has a good level of bitterness, the hops are resiny and not much fruity, it doesn’t show the alcohol, nor the age.
Very good.

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Caramel and some butterscotch. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Light caramel and sweetness. A bit past its prime.

Draught, 2010 vintage. Pours a very cloudy brown color with almost no head on it at all. Nose seems boozy with some caramel to it. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly toasty, with a dry finish.

"Caramel and bread, citrus hops and alcohol. Nothing outside of the ordinary, but all in all seems a little tame. Didn’t stand up to the harvest dance wheat wine well at all. "

On tap at the BikeBar (’11 vintage). Amber pour with a white head. Enticing caramel malt aromas. Sweet with brown sugar, caramel, and malty notes. Good body and mouthfeel.

Bottle at Whole Foods, who can beat decent pours for free while grocery shopping! On a Sunday afternoon. Haha. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly sticky sweet malts, light citrus hops. The flavor is toffee, caramel, big sweet hops, medium to low bitterness. Good beer. A bit of heat.

Sledutah (6255) - Utah, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Sampled this at Whole Foods in Beaverton
Clear golden with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine and sweet. Flavor is the same, hoppy and pine resin
Decent, still pretty hot and bitter.

GTAEgeek (1588) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Sample at First Sunday. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium, white head. Forward hop aromas of pine and flowers, with a backbone of toffee and white bread. Strong bitterness up front, but well balanced with a lot of malty sweetness. Heavy body, with a thick, ascerbic mouthfeel. I’m not usually a fan of hop forward barley wines, but this one is quite tasty.

Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Nose of tropical fruit with touches of caramel. A murky orange amber pour with a mostly deminishing off-white head and no lacing. The taste is lightly sweet initially with a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Tropical fruit, suggestions of caramel, resin/pine notes, and a comfortable alcohol warmth in the finish. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat of a dry mouthfeel. Overall, very enjoyable, but somewhat on the hoppy side of the taste profile.
