Bottle shared by alexsadad06. Poured yellow orange color with an average white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy wheat and alcohol aroma. Moderate to heavy smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor to medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a complex beer.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750mL bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck) and coryking (thanks Cory). Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, candied sugar, some white chocolate, toasted nuts and boozy liqueur. Flavour is light on the tongue but very alcoholic, with lots of booze, some candied sugar, paint thinner and feint licorice. Extremely boozy and paint thinner-like, with high carbonation. Way off the mark here.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from phaleslu. Pours a slightly hazy orange caramel color with a medium plus off white head. The aroma had quite a bit of fruit (tropical and some citrus), wheat, caramel, lightly toasted and a touch of wood. The flavor has the same fruits as the nose although they are not as dominating. More wheat, wood, and earthy bitterness comes through. Medium bodied and this hides the abv extremely well. Pretty good overall.
