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.

2010 bottle 98 of 276 thanks to LtDan. Pours with a deep brown body and a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, maple, honey, caramel and applewood. Flavors of vanilla, bourbon, caramel, rye, wood, and dryness. Bitter and dry for this big of a beer. Tasty stuff.

A- Body is a translucent caramel hue with uniform fogginess throughout. Pours with a miniscule white head-but it has good retention with a thick collar. S- Nose is very sweet overall. A well balanced blend of honey, molasses, oak, and bourbon. A mild alcohol astringency comes through as well. T- Flavor is very sweet as well with honey being the dominant presence and sweet bourbon in second. There is a mild bready background and a touch of oak in there as well. The oak and barrel and bourbon flavors come through a little bit more for the finish and a moderate alcohol heat appears-but honey remains dominant. What lingers is sweet honey and a moderate alcohol heat that is kept in check. M- Medium carbonation and a body that is medium weight and full-with a blend of honey and alcohol consistencies. D- This is a very good wheatwine overall and the bourbon, oak and honey blend well and compliment eachother. This brew is very sweet, almost too sweet and the mild alcohol presence doesnt really tame the sweetness. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010 14:04:32 --

Bottle thanks to Sara I believe, drank at the Pittsburgh tasting. Pours a cloudy dark red hue with a medium white head. A sweet bourbon and honey nose, full of caramel and vanilla candies, some sourness in the nose. The flavor is interesting almost challenging; rich hot honey and sugars, heavy bourbon, vanilla, bone dry. A wheat wine for sure, but with loads of sweetness and bourbon. Nice.

Transparent nut-brown red, thin bubbly cream head for a ring. Lot of oak, sugar, bourbon, green and twiggy, bit of honey. More warmth, Heavy bourbon flavor, creamy but a bit washed out, some banana bread and caramel in the finish. Thin, bit sugary, hot in the end. Nose preferred to the flavor.

This poured a ruby red color with a very small off white head. Aroma was very sweet smelling, and constantly reminded me of the pineapple infused vanilla milkshakes I used to drink as a child, just crazy. Flavor had the same similar taste, but also had notes of the oak, some of the sweet honey and lots of vanilla. Really interesting and complex stuff.

A-pours a dark caramel colored beer with red hues shining through and a tan colored head on top. S-the nose is pretty solid, bourbon and vanilla right up front, solid barrels also impart hints of woods, lots of caramel malts with a sweet dark plum aroma in the back. T-the taste is also very solid. sweet caramel and ripe cherries, notes of chocolate and a fair bit of caramel with the barrel flavors coming in at the back. bourbon, light vanilla, notes of dry oak, hints of heat in the finish. M-medium creamy body, little grainy in the back blending with the heat, somewhat dry finish with an assertive carbonation. D-very solid barleywine, lots of sweetness to this but the barrel integrates nicely. very bourbon forward but I like it.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery during the 5th anniversary party. Poured near clear amber with a light brown head that dissipated slowly to the edge. Aroma had notes of sweet grain, hay, honey, caramel and a bourbon backing. Flavor began with honey and caramel and was joined by sweet grains and wheat with a bourbon finish.
