2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Funky "wheatwine". Color of pure bee honey in a glass. Sweet alcoholic nose, honey. Thick, syrupy honey flavors totally dominant. Alcohol is harsh. Strong sipper gets teal-like aftertaste once the burn wears off.

An amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and alcohol. The flavor quite dry with hops and lots of alcohol. I like the concept Wheatwine.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This tastes like burned raisins. Quite alcoholic and powerful. I could imagine the taste would improve espesially on this one, if kept for 5+ yers.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Orange coloured. Not much head. Aroma of berries and fruit. Flaovur of alcahol. VERY much alcahol. Some sweetness is there and some spices. Ends on a bitternote, but again the alcahol totally dominates. This is a very one-dimensional beer IMO.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Bottle: Aroma is very malty and fruity. Kind of has a banana bread aroma. Slight alcohol nose. Pours a very dark amber with lots of sediment floating around. Decent tan head that lasts a minute or so. Very matly. Has that banana bread flavor too as well as a big caramel finish. Only a slight alcohol flavor. Caramel aftertaste. Slight hops in the finish, but I really mean slight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a syrupy orange-brown with a touch of haze. Big off-white head that lasts forever. Nice lacing. Aroma is Malty sweet. Hints of wheat are noticable. Taste is Instantly sweet, and then a hit of bitter. Characters of the wheat fade in and out. A touch harsh to me, not bad, but just a little rough. Perhaps time will help.

Pours a dark amber with a huge head. Aroma is sweet and close to a white wine. Flavor is lightly sweet and clean with some hop bitterness/spice at the end. Palate is smooth and light. Alcohol is extremely hidden.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gorgeous magenta hue, a deep violet, with a solid ring of beige foam reigning atop. Aroma is full of grapes, alcohol, spice, orange zest, cherries, brandy, leather, cognac, a heady crowd to run with, yeah, but a generous mix for those who favor abundance of flavor.
Taste is smooth, yet still a bit spikey, with a brash, bold fruity flavor clanging in, reminding me, really, of Aventinus, more than anything else, and that’s a goood thing, let us not forget!
Has it’s own character, fruity, spicy, yet stil maintains a connection to the weizen feel to in the taste, as well.
No quaffer here, this is a truly luxurious brew. Wish I had a magnum, and all the best people and the very best time, to chime in some happy celebration, with this most wondrous brew!
