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.

22 oz bottle. Almost clear brown with beige froth. Nose is caramel, bourbon and grass. Medium light with soft carb. Taste is honey, bourbon, grass; pretty much like the nose. Nice balance of all the elements without any dominating.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark honey, wood and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark honey sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex very good beer.

On tap at the Jackie Oís 5th Anniversary Extravaganza. Served in a tulip. Pours a nice caramel-amber color with a limited head and a touch of lacing. There is a bit of a collar on the edges, though not much on the sides of the glass. The nose brings some light bourbon, vanilla, and oak along with some nice dark honey and caramel. The flavor isnít quite as complex or interactive, and was slightly too sweet for me. Nevertheless, Iíd have to see that this is certainly one of the better wheatwines that I have tasted. There were some nice caramel and bourbon notes there, and a good level of honey. Perhaps the best thing the taste had going for it was how well the finish accentuated what was there with the barrel character becoming more prevalent. In the end, this was a fairly-interesting brew that I enjoyed, but didnít get too much of. I liked having a few ounces, but wouldnít want that much more. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-06-2010

Courtesy of Jackie-osí trade master markwise. Thanks again Mark. Pours amber with copper edges and tan head. The aroma is spicy maple, honey, some dark fruity esters and loads of heat that begins to sear the snoot. The taste is rich yummy goodness with honey, sticky malts and molasses as well as some pine and spicy hop goodness. The brew comes together beautifully and makes me wish I had a case of this stuff sittiní Ďround.

Bottle picked up at the release, 2010 batch, bottle 220/276. I had this at the release on tap several times(one of my favorites of the night) but this review is of the bottle consumed out of my Darkness glass...Super dark brown pour with plum hues. Good carbonation as about four fingers of tope head rises and stays for awhile. Great lacing...The aroma is not as in your face as I recall but nice balance of bourbon, oak, and honey. Sweet and alcoholic all at once...The taste is good as I remember, just awesome. TONS of honey mixed with bourbon, reminds of an old wives tail cold remedy (water, bourbon and honey hint of lemon). Honey is all over the front and the finish is the bourbon. First time Iíve had a beer that finishes almost like drinking bourbon, warm, tingly, scratchy all the way down. Some vanilla creeps in one finish as well. This is awesome, another hit by Brad, a world class wheatwine.

Thanks to goryshkewych for this one in trade. Pours dark amber brown with a tan head. Nose is honey, booze, malt, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, depth and complexity. I love the smell of complexity. Flavor is similar with bourbon, honey, some sweet flavors like berry and bubble gum, vanilla, and lots of syrupy honey. Wow. This one is a sipper and while there is a hint of booze in the nose, it is nowhere near pronounced in the flavor or finish. Well done, Brad!

Bottle number 264/276. Split with Ryan011235. A- This beer is another darker one, darker than most of the style but not by all that much. Its really a deep red with some purples, caramels and browns. A small cap of soft, pillowy froth washes up against the sides of the glass. Its prone to patches of lace and pillows of floating bubbles. Swirling easily coaxes out lots more soft carbonation. S- Right away barrels are on your nose, they eel with wheat and very honey. What Im trying to say is that there is a musty, old barrel smell that only has trace amounts of bourbon notes left. The honey is there providing a nice clover aroma and some sweetness that helps keep things together. Wheat is obvious. Its grainy and snappy. Plenty of stinging alcohol, some of which is smoothed out by bourbon, but most of which is from the 12%abv. Let this warm before fully enjoying the aroma. It really needs to open and once it does some of those odd must barrel notes fade out. T- The taste also highly benefits from some time to warm and open. Bourbon is more apparent here than it was in the aroma. It gives the flavor profile a silken vanilla flavor that rides over an earthy oak base. Wheat livens things up towards the mid to finish. It has a nice snappy flavor. Honey is nicely perceivable. Unlike many beers with honey, Wood Ya Honey actually tastes like it had honey. There is a clover honey sweetness that lingers in the back of the mouth. Its very nice. M- Low carbonation. The bubbles are as soft as they look when the glass is swirled. Its actually a pretty smooth beer with a full body. Yes, this is Jackie Oís so the finish is dry, but not overly so. D- One of the better ones from the Athens crew.

22 ounce bottle, 2010 batch, #142 of 276 bought at Jackie Oís. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a dark copper/brown color with about a half inch tan head that went away quickly. Thereís a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like honey, bourbon, vanilla, caramel and oak. Itís a nice, sweet boozy aroma. It tastes like bourbon, oak, honey, oak, and a little bit of grainy malt (wheat). However, the taste isnít as sweet as I thought it would be. I think the boozy bourbon and oak is stronger in the taste compared to the sweet honey and vanilla flavors, however the sweetness does get stronger as the beer warms up more. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with low/moderate carbonation. Drinkability is OK enough, but I donít think I would want to drink much more than a bomber of this at a time. I think this is a good overall brew, Iíd definitely try this again.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Appearance: Pours a murky amber with a frothy white film for head.

Aroma: Bit o honey and bourbon (vanilla, caramel and musty wood).

Taste: Burnt sugar, bit o honey, bourbon, grassy hops with a boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with modest carbonation.

Overall: Very yummy, while big and sweet, didnít come across as messy, but rather decadent and luxurious.
