3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep slightly hazy amber golden with a big frothy off white head. Aroma is very nice sweet cake and pineapple character, caramel, very nice fruity notes. Flavor starts sweet and cakey, again plenty of that pineapple character along with some other tropical fruits with some wheat finishing a bit doughy and hints of some darker fruits. Medium to medium full body and a moderate carbonation. Nice beer

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark, ruddy pour of brown liquid, the head present but a whisper. Rich aroma of lightly cooked brown sugar and alcohol. Drinks with a warming palate, rich with caramel malt and syrupy goodness, but not in an overwhelming way at all. Quite well balanced and drinkable for a 10% wheat wine. Excellent. (#5360, 12/12/2013)
