Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Deep reddish caramel, moderate to large foamy light beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet maltiness right up front.   Backside has a little medicinal cherry like cough syrup.   Woooo, real boozy on the backside.   Its a little biting in that alcoholic medicinal sense.   Nose doesn’t reveal such fire, slight malts and even a touch of band-aid.   Hmmmm... Kind of reminds me of the Alaskan Big Nugget, but more medicinal.   This one needs some time.   Somewhat sweet, but needs a different kind of non-cloying sweetness to balance it out.   Young, brash, hot, medicinal, but certainly malty.   Not a hop bomb, which I like.   Its a bit over the top now.   Hopfully time will cool its jets.

Medium brown with fizzy tan head. Faint sweet aroma. Tastes of molasses candy sugar toffee and caramel. Decent.

Tap at Brouwers. Nose is sweet with lots of wheat malt, fruit cake or candy, candy cherries, floral earthy hops, and alcohol. Pours murky brownish red/amber with a creamy frothy head that settles to a thin not much. Wheat malt, sweet and fruity sugars up front, earthy bitterness comes through and is then crushed by an almost chemical alcohol presence. Up front strong wheat malt is pleasant, getting crushed by chemical alcohol in the finish is not. Lots of lingering sweetness and sugars. Hard to drink, and that says a lot for me since I have the tendency to call 10% imperial stouts easy drinking on occasion.

Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a murky caramel brown with a grayish tan. Nose is wheaty sweet bread with honey, apple, peach and light caramel. Sweet honey apple up front with peppery wheat and more sweet maltiness. Finishes up kind of peppery dry and dusty with a chemical taste. Not much depth for me and not like other wheat wines I’ve had. Although, most seem to differ a bit from brewer to brewer. Guess I’m just finding what qualities in one I like best.
