Another recently created American style, wheat wine, as its name implies, is a strong ale made with a substantial measure of malted wheat as well as barley. A close cousin to barleywines, wheat wines are typically strong, full bodied, deep gold to amber in color and feature a subtle soft tangy flavor derived from their wheat malt.

Tap at Black Squirrel. Pours clear light amber with lots of foamy head and lots of lacing. Nose is cereal and fruit. Flavours of juicy fruit, cheerios, dough. Taste is medium bitter and medium/light sweet. Full body with lively carbonation and quite an alcohol burn.

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2015
2008 bottle, well cellared. Lovely deep red-amber, cloudy, with a bit of lace. Malty, wheaty nose, estery fruits, port, bit of gum, oxidation. Nicely fruity, raisins, plums, cherry, grape. Tangy, lightly hoppy finish. Alcohol is smooth and not very noticeable. Bit of burn in the end with hops. A bit too oxidized for perfection, but it has aged nicely. Probably 1-2 years past its prime, but still nice. Very nice fruit character.

Hazy deep copper with little offwhite head; aroma is mildly hoppy with some tart earthy grainy notes; flava is malty grainy with some hop bitterness; feels light yet creamy; finishes mildly dry hop bitterness mingled with hint of tartness

2010 Bottle I finally opened in December 2014. A touch oxidized and obviously still pretty sweet but has nice fruity notes and some caramelly sweetness. Certainly a fine beer to cellar.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Bomber. Pours a veiled reddish amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, loads of malts. Flavor is red berries, loads of caramel, resin, brown sugar. Finish is alcohol warmth, touch of hops and wood. Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Might be a bit too strong.

Won’t lie I was a little scared of this one but I’m pleasantly surprised. Smells like a big barley wine with lots of toffee and oak. Good favors of toffee and oak with a hint of hops but then turns pretty alcohol harsh and bitter fast. Not bad but not sure I want a whole 22oz myself and honestly miss the bourbon in these oak barrels as that May round out some of the bitter harsh finish with some sticky sweetness.
