On tap at Tap 25. It pours golden amber with an orange head. The aroma is mostly bready and fruity with mild hops. There is an earthiness to the fruit character (figs?) The flavor has more red fruit with some caramel, a little honey and nice dense wheat. Earthy finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - OCT 12, 2012
Dark red-brown beer, it almost doesn’t taste like a wheat beer, has some malty flavor, caramel. It was good, but nothing special.

On tap. Clear reddish brown with a fizzy off white head and a lively palate. Aroma and taste of cola, caramel, and fig. Not bad.

Tap: hazy caramel brown with thin white head. Aroma is raspberry-like with some malt. Flavor is also raspberry, with honey, a lityle fig and wheat. Overall, not a big fan of the aroma or flavor.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Sample at the Seattle brewpub. The beer is a dark brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of biscuit malt, raisins and figs. The finish is short with a dark fruit and yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ferris (4704) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Brown sugar and an earthiness I can’t place. Cloudy brown with a nice rich head that will not fade. Sweetness from the yeast makes it seem like a Belgian but without the body. Definite dried fruit and alcohol on the finish and malts throughout. Not to my taste.

From a grower filled at Pyramid Seattle Alehouse. Pours hazy orange color with a thick creamy off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of fig and raisins and sweet malt. Tastes of fig and dark fruit with a wierd wheat/red ale twist and hoppy in the back end. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was a pretty good wheat beer with unique flavor. Hopefully this will be available on draft every fall.

shadey (1908) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. I really liked the concept of including fig flavors into a red ale, but I wasn’t sure about the wheat. Wheat beers are too often used to carry fruit flavors because of their lighter nature. I think figs are better in a bigger beer. 6.6% alcohol is certainly big enough, but I’m not understanding the red/wheat mixture. What is supposed to be happening here?

Strilo (63) - Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2012
This beer had so much promise but ultimately was just bland and boring. Not a bad beer, just sort of middling and lacking the sort of malty goodness I would expect in a red wheat. And I felt any fig tones were totally lost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at OBF. Pours dark amber brown with a beige head. Aroma is actually fig. Med + body. Flavor is dark roast with figgy darkish fruit. That’s pretty much it. Not dark dark - but darker than many wheats. Lightly bitter finish fights off sugar. It’s really nice.
