3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this during my honeymoon. Draft at the brewpub in Portsmouth. Dark, opaque copper color and nearly still without carbonation. Sweet caramel and sugar, with lingering hop bitterness and full palate with perceivable alcohol. I liked this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014, best by August 2014. 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a dark red with a light khaki head that disappears completely over time. Nose is dark fruits and berries with some caramel and booze. Taste is toffee, raisins, berries, wheat and some floral hops. Finishes sticky, boozy, and sweet. Carbonation is a bit low. Overall it’s a big sipper. Nothing amazing, but very warming.

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy amber pour, naive slightly fruity nose (the bartender said strawberry, but my nose just isn’t that good). Nice malt character without being overly sweet. Strong hops and just at ing bitterness on the finish. Really nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/12/13
Aroma: The aroma is sweet malts, some fruit/strawberry, and a little boozy too
Appearance: It pours a copperish-amber color with some off-white head on it
Flavor: Flavor-wise, this one is sweet and a little boozy, I got strawberry, citrus, and wheat
Palate: The mouthfeel is decent, it has a medium body, and an average length duration
You know, I wasn’t a huge fan of this one, but, at the same time, this is a decent attempt at the style. Portsmouth might not have made a top of style Wheat Wine, but I’m glad the at least attempted this style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a cloudy and hazy dark amber body with a bit of a wispy beige head. The nose is heavy on the wheat and malt with some sweet candied fruits. The flavor is very heavy and dense, lots of earthy wheat, heavy caramel, fairly hefty alcohol kick on the back end. Pretty nice stuff, still drinkable even at this high of an ABV. Thick and chewy with soft minimal carbonation, a little clingy with a warming finish. Pretty nice in a small dose.

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy copper with a light beige head. Aroma of wheat and caramel malts, hints of toffee, some dough, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a little alcohol on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.
