7/23/10. Thanks to AskDrTodd for sharing! Pretty mild and sweet wheat aroma with lots of sweet malt. The flavor is extremely sweet with an actual hint of hop bitterness as well. Not bad.

A clear yellow-orange brew with thin lacey white head. You can smell the hops before the bitterness hits your tongue. Very creamy texture and you can feel the heaviness of the malt. Nice caramel and butterscotch overtones, but there’s no hiding the fact that this is a "wheat wine". The bittering hops really grip your tongue and have an almost "rubber mat" aroma and flavor (is there any Simcoe in this?) with some piney flavor mixed in. The alcohol actually feels like it could be higher than the 9.2% that’s reported. You could really freak out someone who doesn’t like craft brew by giving this to them without telling them what it is since it looks so light but is heavier than a lot of stouts. Very unique and well made beer!

Pours a slightly hazy honey golden color with generous white head. Nose has a bit of alcohol snap to it, but otherwise has some pepper and bready notes. Sugary dessert flavors are noted on the palate, also reminds me of cardamom and cookies. Alcohol presence is again noted, though it is still syrupy and enjoyable. Finish is sweet and herbal.

popery (1947) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Good beer but a bit harsh. Bright, transparent, yellow-gold with a small white head. Lots of sugary malt, mild wheat spice, a bit of caramel. Flavor is a tad sweet, boozy and bitter. Also, rich and finishes fairly clean and dry. Not nearly as sticky as it could be. Pretty good beer and I can see raising my scores in the future. I’d recommend giving it some time in the glass to warm up and lose some carbonation.

Gold pour with just a faint white head. Aroma is stale spicy hops, candy sugar, pickles. Flavor follows through with the aroma. I pick up a little bit of foot and some alcohol. Finishes very sweet, big alcohol presence. Decent carbonation for the style. Disappointing.
