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.

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.

pepsican (1444) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2010
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.

Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light. [20100110]

Powerful beer. Dont get confused by the Wheat Ale label, this is a big powerful barleywine. Really well made, really packs a malty punch. Good brew.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 22, 2010
On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head and a pleasantly sour aroma. There is a mellow wheat flavor, sweeter than I expecected, with just a tinge of peach-like sourness.Nicely carbonated.

Hazy amber color. Nutty and sweet caramel aroma. It has caramel flavor with some sweet toffee; regular bitterness. Plain.
