Not so sickly sweet as some belgians. Smooth mouthfeel. Ratebeer says barley wine, but the bottle says triple, so trippel? Nice citrus aroma, and a lingering bitter finish covered by a light candy sweetness. Dangerously drinkable.

Older bottle shared by Mike at the meeting tonight, thanks for the opportunity!
Sweet rich malty fruitiness with hints of spice bread and hints of sherry like oxidation. Nice sipper but headed down the other side of the bell curve.

"Sherry-like only if sherry has hops. Good balance though between the wheat, other mAlts and hops. Lightly bitter and sweet, not showing a lot of alcohol."

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
