4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Oh dear lord. Hazy amber pour with a small quick fading head. Aroma was big time sweet caramel and bourbon. Cherries and fruit cake. Flavors were sweet and boozy, caramel, sweet fruit, bourbon and a woody finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. This is awesome.

22oz bottle with sceen printing older vintage thanks to toby. Pours out copper topped with a small sand head. Aroma of pit fruit caramel malts toffee and a little hop. Taste is as the aroma with caramel malts leading the way some pit fruit still hanging on. A little of the hop bitterness on the end. This one was still holding up very well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a small head. Aroma is lots of fruity wheat and yeast esters, toffee and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, fruity and peppery yeast and a fairly strong alcohol heat. Medium body with soft carbonation. This one smells really nice but the flavor is a bit of a let down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, with an orange printed-on label. Probably several years old. Clear red-orange color. Minimal khaki head. Couple fine dots of lace. No hints of oxidization, thatís good.. Very smooth and easy drinking. No bite or burn in the taste. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, just a light warmth. Caramel malt, light earthy hop, lightly spicy. Bigger body, some smooth, lighter kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Some tropical fruity hop. Solid wheat wine. Holds up well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark amber with a large bubbled head cover and light streaks of lace. Taste is full caramel malt with candied fruit. At the finish, alcohol and dark dried fruit becomes apparent and cuts the sweetness for a good balance. Strong, appealing, but only one at a time! Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber pour with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with some grain, orange citrus, peaches, candy sugar and assorted spices. The flavor is very similar and equally complex. There is a lot of malty sweetness as well as some wheat and big, juicy orange citrus notes. There is also some peppery spice as well as some yeast and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
