3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Fat aroma of caramel and overripe fruit. Full-bodied, sweetish caramel and again overripe fruit. Some bitterness in the finish. Classical American Barley Wine without being stunningly interesting. 180807

9th November 2008. Wheatwine (50% wheat malt). Low carbonation. Deep amber beer, slightly hazy. Dry and silky palate. Sour wheaty malt with a little brandy in the very dry finish. Shows it hand with the abv. Not overly complex but alright!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Monk’s Café, Wallingatan
Amber color with red hue; medium head. Aroma of sweet caramel, vanilla, Bourbon, alcohol. Medium body strength, strong caramel flavor, vanilla, but not well combined; a bit too bitter, and, mostly, a rather unpleasant sweet liquorice finish. Not convincing.

Bottle, 10%. Good fruity aroma, dried fruit, apricot. Cloudy dark orange colour. Small, soft, creamy head. The flavour is nicely fruity, creamy, quite bitter and with some alcohol. The mouthfeel is almost slimy, but OK.

Amber. Vibrant colour with a slight chill haze. Sweet, caramel and canned mushroom aroma. Some earthiness and a little bit boozy. Very sweet. Total caramel. Very syrupy. Not my thing at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Beer Geek. Nice darker amber color with a few white bubbles and a slight ring for head. Very fruity, sweet aroma. Medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is malt sugar, some caramel, perhaps a touch of brown sugar. There’s a slight bite on the tongue tip. Hop is strong enough to more or less stave off the typical barley wine sweetness in the finish. The only heat I’m noticing is in my head. Arguably a lighter version of a barley wine, but I couldn’t mention one point where that’s true. Alcohol and wheat together for the ale and bread dole; drole.
