callmemickey (2266) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Hazy orange/straw/copperish body. Thin off white head. Little lacing remains behind. S: Wheat. Moderate maltiness in the form of caramel and roasted tones. Slight citrus/floral hop character. M: Much of the same. Caramel malts and floral hops. Slight spice hints. Slightly funky. M: Medium body. Thin is spots. Alcohol is dominant in others. Decent finish. O: A miss from PBC here. Nothing really keeps the tongues attention and the ABV is a bit to hight to warrant a second glass in a sitting.

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Draft @ Union Jack’s Glenside; golden medium bodied with slight foam ring. Lighter bitterness than expected which allowed caramel, nutty malt with a hint of fruitiness shine through.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Golden color with a big burnt sugar and citrus/candy aroma. Flavor is of burnt orange and candies from Halloween that you didn’t really want. WTF?! This pretty much makes a wheatwine look like Mad Dog 20/20.
