Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks good; a hazy deeper apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells malty with notes of dark fruit, caramel, and twangy oak alongside a touch of toffee and maple syrup. Tastes like it smells with. Some vanilla as well. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. A great example of the style.

On tap at The Livery. Pours amber with an attractive beige head and a fruity bourbon aroma. There is a yeast- laden wheat flavor with plenty of lingering Jim Beam vibes.a nice sipper.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Tap: Dense amber body, brown hints. A little muddy with a huge khaki foam perched on top. Heavy, sticky butter toffee, bourbon warmth, spicy oak, sweet caramel candy drops, a hint of vanilla, & even a kick of dense maple syrup that’s left lingering. A fairly heavy beer, but still goes down nicely for being 12% ABV, no doubt. Sweet, slightly booze, but damn tasty.

Bottle @ Steve’s house. Thanks to brokensail for sending. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a thin off white head. Orange citrus, spicy veggie, twangy aroma. Twangy, pineapple, orange citrus, chewy malty flavor. Some oak and tannins. Twangy. Ehhh.

Pour out of 750 ml bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, earth, grass, hints of caramel, hints of grain, yeast. Taste is a mix of grass, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, hints of vanilla, oak, slight sour fruit notes. Pretty tasty, but sweet.

Sampler at brewpub. Nothing said this was barrel aged but this is where I have to rate it. This was the beer I liked best from the sampler. Orange-amber clear color. Lightly sticky lacing. Aroma is moderate fruitiness but not astringent, beer feels thick on the nose. Pretty neutral after that, which is good and means nothing bad. Flavor is appropriately sweet for the style, fruity yeast character, low bitterness, some neutral-fruity hops breaking through. Surprisingly lighter on the palate than anticipated. Not amazing but good.

Orangish pour, off white head. Tart flavor, some citrus notes, light toffee, a hint of wheat, malty flavors mixed with a fruity and tartness. Neat beer.

It is a sour wheatwine. I think most people aren’t usually fans of the style and im so so on it. This one is lighter on the palate malt-wise so it takes in a good amount of barrel and sourness.

Headbanger (3542) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Sample at brewery 2/27/10 Pours a hazy golden. Aroma of oak. Tast of oak, alcohol, and wheat. This full bodied brew was damn good. Nice brew.

A hazy orange colored pour with a small off-white head. Nose is incredibly fruit forward. Tangerine, peach, grapefruit, and nectarine notes up front. Tons of oak and vanilla, some mild tartness, and a bit of malt sweetness. Sweet fruit flavors, too. Tangerine, nectarine, and peach are particularly pronounced. Light caramel sweetness, tart lemon, oak, and some vanilla. Very mild mustiness on the finish.
