savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 3, 2013
750ml bottle from beernbourbon, thanks Vince. Clear golden with a small spotty white head Aroma of wheat, fruity yeast, alcohol, toffee, apple and dough. Flavor is toffee, spicy/fruity yeast esters, alcohol and sugar. Medium body with soft carbonation. This is a really nice wheat wine, really fruity and a bit hot.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Deep caramel and strawberry jam accompany honey and candied oranges in this classic rendition of a Barley Wine.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the hazy mahogany.
-Alcohol is well hidden under the sugars.
-Wheat is not showcased at all here, most likely affecting the texture and not much else.
-Maple sugar also morphs within the honey allusions.
-This lacks complexity, but it is able to compensate through comfort creation.

Bottle.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours deep amber mostly unclear with a light sandy colored head. The aroma brings sweet but not resiny candy like malts, smooth in the nose. Body and flavor are smooth, sweet and lightly bitter malts interact well and there is no overpowering factor like you usually get in this style.

obguthr (4081) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Rich molasses, walnut, and cashew nose, some oak as well. Opaque ochre, thin yellow head. Overripe orange, marzipan, chock full of nuts. Cashew in the end. Full body, moderate carbonation. Yep, this a barleywine, but I never would have guessed it had any significant amount of wheat in it.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle... Clear amber pour with a fleeting, small, white head. The aroma offers a hearty medley of tropical blossom honeys – avocado, bottlebrush, longan, lychee – accompanied by toffee and a slight brothy note. Full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a fusion of caramel and heavy, metallic bitterness that lingers way too long after an otherwise nice, bittersweet finish. Bottle courtesy of the one and only biggsbowler!

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Nice amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar, some caramel, and toasted malt. Nice fruity hops and citrus peel. Some pine, banana, and dried pear. Good sweetness on the palate. Slight pine bitterness and maybe some booze. Sweet dried pear and apple. Light banana and plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Hints of citrus peel, too.

boFNjackson (4175) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured deep dark, amber-ish orange with a medium forming off-white head. Sweet and hints of vanilla. Nice wheat wine with caramel, cocoa, and some bitterness. Dark fruits worked their way in for some complexity.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
This one poured a darker orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of stale malt and hops and booze. Flavor was similar, just old and oxidized but not in a good way.
