COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desciption - We took a decadent Honey Wheat Wine and placed it into a woodford reserve bourbon barrel 4 months ago. Tipping the abv scales at 12%, Wood Ya Honey is a a beer to be savored. Flavors of caramel, honey, vanilla, wood, and bourbon intermingle creating a crimson colored delight.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2013
22oz bottle, #74/180, from the 2011 release. pours a hazy copper with hints of garnet around the edges capped by a razor thin, pale beige head that leaves just a trace of lace around the edges. aroma is excellent with heavy notes of caramel sauce, honey, sweet breads, vanilla nougat, and wet wood backed by dark fruits, spices, bourbon, and an interesting note of floral sweetness. flavor is delicious, but surprisingly a bit tart, with heavy dark, vinous notes, black cherries, and fresh figs up front backed by sweet toffee, vanilla, honey, and mellow, woody bourbon. palate is medium bodied, probably lightented a bit by the tart notes, with light carbonation and a lingering finish of dark fruits, caramel, and bourbon. overall, a damn tasty barleywine whether it was supposed to be tart or not.

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours unclear murky brown with a decent amount of sediment and tan head. The aroma brings sweet malty notes with light toffee, strong. The flavor is similar, sweet, light toffee and a decent body, not too thick or syrupy, but the birch comes in pretty potently with light honey notes.
