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.

Draft at Flying Saucer. The pour is a vibrant ruby color with a lingering top. The aroma is mostly sweet toffee. The taste is a typical wheat wine upfront, but then you get a bite of bitterness and the aftertaste is a little boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"10.5% hybrid. sampled June 2011, unknown that we’d just bought a 2009 bottle off the shelf. ironically, it would have been passed on if we knew it was 2 years old, but damn, this thing aged to near perfection. the bitter finish still balanced out the sweetness from the 47% barley malt and 53% wheat, which also made it just fruity sweet enough without being overbearing. somewhat thick, but hid the alcohol well. great beer, and another notch in the belt for Smuttynose!"

Flat pour with a minimal head. Aroma of candy and sweets. Taste is overwhelming sweet wheat. Close to a Belgian dark but not.

Not my favorite. Nice strong aroma but the flavor was slightly off putting. Not the biggest barley wine fan anyways.

Decent barleywine that poured a light amber color. The white head was quite modest but left some nice lacing behind. The nose was sweet with notes of wheat, alcohol, light whiskey and some floral hops. The body was big and strong, but well balanced. The flavors were on the semi-sweet side with notes of wheat, alcohol, orange, lemon, toffee and caramel. The finish was quite strong as well, with more notes of spicy hops and a bit more alcohol.

On tap, caramel color with a small head. It has a high ABV and it shows in the aroma and taste. Has a maple aroma and taste. Medium silky smooth mouthfeel. Watch out for this one!
