Pours a hazy light tan/orange. Fruity nose with wheat. Tastes like a barlywine and I guess that is why it is categorized as such. Alcohol aftertaste. Pretty good.

A vey nice barleywine/wheat mix. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a thick white head. Smells of barleywine malts, fruit, caramel and sea salt. Taste is fruity, boozy, with some vanilla in the finish. Quite nice. Had on tap at the brewery.

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.

.. . have seen this cat for years, but never ordered it, until now- needed to fill a hole in a recent order and the price was right; so in goes the cat into my cart ..
. this cat pours deep gold amber .. the foam from this cat is impressive, mild lacing .. . bold cat on the sweetness, malty and a super drinkable cat .. . lots of sherry .. . a very nice cat, smooth and rich, very english and soft, this is a sweet cat. .. . . i fucked a beer once....

"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. ---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 isn’t 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, I’d 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 I’m not impressed.
