Malty grainy aroma. Pours clear straw/amber with a white head. Sweet malty flavors with a long sweet finish.

They're not kidding when they say "triple" wheat. Takes a sip to get used to, but very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz in Le Merle glass. Very pale orange, slight haze, small soapy head. Surprisingly raisiny ripe plum aromas with some musty dusty cellar, pepper, and peach. Spiky, high test flavors of uncomplicated bittering and booze; a wash of untoasted sweet pervades but isnít overbearing. Plasticky bitter sticks around a bit too long for full points in the palate, but a balanced body with dryness is pleasant enough. To be honest, Iíd like a wheatwine to be gooier, softer, more luxuriant.

Yikes. Appearance is bright opaque orange with almost no head and no lacing. Nose is candied tangerine. Taste is incredibly sweet and sugary, cloying candied citrus and a sugary wheat malt. Palate is thick and chewy which is expected but also really warm. Overall Iím not impressed.

Bomber. Dark gold color very little head and and no retention. Nose is grainy alcohol with some nail polish remover. Taste follows with secondary sweetness. Not very good. Maybe a bad bottle as I love Wheatwine types. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful color, almost zero head (thats a negative), apricot and oatmeal taste. Has a lingering apricot aftertaste thatís pleasant. Very sour/bitter flavor that I donít find appealing. The bitterness lasts in your mouth for a long time. Not impressed.

deekyn (1142) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
A - pours dark apple juice amber with almost zero white head. S - strong fruity aromas up front, bananas, apricots and peaches. Hints of alcohol also. Strong body and average palate. No carb to speak of. Nice alcohol warmed end. T - bitter quiet dark dried fruit, apricots and peaches up front. Wheat and full bodied malts on the palate. Lingering bitter end. O - pretty good barley wine. Fruity and toned down. 7-

Tap: clear golden with small white head. Aroma is fruity peach and apricot together with toasted grain. Flavor is mildly tart peach, cereal, apricot, and caramel. Palate is thick, running tart with a little sweetness and finishing with a bitterness. Over interesting, at first a little off-putting but growing on me as it warms.

On tap at streets of London for beer week. Aroma is very fruity, almost like cotton candy or bubble gum. Flavor is very smooth wow! allot of the same flavour as aroma. Some grainy flavours also. Really good, really what I would expect barley wine to taste like.
