It’s been many moons since Sleeping Lady made the last wheat wine. The newest version of this beer is slightly different from the past, but still maintains its unique flavor. The wheat wine style is not very common, but it should be. Think of this beer as a light colored barley wine. Our particular recipe is 66% pilsner malt and 33% malted wheat. A few pounds of honey were also added to the boil just for fun. The beer was fermented with a Scottish ale yeast and ended up at 12% ABV. The wheat wine was then aged in new Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels for four months. Since the barrels were new, we decided that beer would benefit from a shorter contact time. It pours with a very light carbonation and a moderate chill haze. As the beer warms, the haze will disappear and become relatively clear. There are so many flavors present in this beer, it’s best if you try it for yourself. Cheers.

@ Snow Goose loft. Clear golden color with white head. Nice vanilla, marshmallow, dry wood, spicy caramel aromas. Medium full body with average co2. Big vanilla, spicy caramel, pit fruit, tart wet wood flavors--tasty--the 15% is well cloaked
