3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL thanks to MrBubbler on the RBSG bus. Clear deep orange pour. Small tan foam. Nose is mega cheesy, nutty, orange candies. Taste follows suit. Small herbal flavor and tomato. Dry and very heavy sugar and cheesecloth. Like a very old DIPA. Not my style. Thick caramel dessert flavor savior.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a huge surprise. My expectations were so low but this pulled through. Really nice doughy biscuity maltiness with lots of sweetness but it doesnt finish cloying. Relatively drinkable and nice.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Aroma has notes of citrus hops, orange candy, caramel, malted wheat and wood. Awesome nose! Hazy dark amber hue with an average off-white head and great lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a wonderful wheat wine that nailed every mark. No trace of that 11%abv. Just loved this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has a whole array of things - full of wheat, cardboard, some dry hops, toasted nuts, grains, some feint fruits, caramel and spices. Flavour is full of spicy notes and toasted nuts upfront, with dry citrusy hops, wheat and dark fruits further back. Quite light-bodied for the ABV, with a very sweet, wheaty, spicy and boozy finish. Decent stuff, but nothing overly great.
