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.
