COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

CloakedDagger (523) - - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a small, off-white head. Thick caramel aroma combined with quite some booze. Rich body, again caramel - and nothing much more really. Lots of hops, lots of booze and not exactly easy drinking! 141113

ThirstyBird (1506) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Thanks to koelschtrinker! 2009 bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a tiny head. Tastes of big toffee and caramel, alcohol, some sharp fruitiness on the end. Body is medium plus and lightly carbonated. A very sweet, rich brew that has a bit of alcohol burn even with 4 years on it.

suprchunk (2151) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
A nice soft orange colored pour. Big white head that drops fast. Some lacing left behind. A nice aroma of bread and hops. Taste is a soft sweetness with some notes of fresh baked bread and sugar. Not bad.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Aroma of pie crust, wheat, apple cider donut and brandy. Pour orange with nice film. Taste is sweet with great wheat notes, cane sugar, and alcohol. Big boozy mouthfeel. A little hot but very tasty.

jtclockwork (8170) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2013

Psytron (1297) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Smell of red berries, oak, cognac, yeast. Cloudy red-amber colour, tiny beige head. Aroma of alcohol, raisins, oak, earth. Heavily sweet. Extremely flat carbon. Not much wheatiness getting through. This one could benefit from lower alcohol strength.

Ferris (3790) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle vintage 2012 - Hoppy and nice balancing malts with a touch of spice. Cloudy copper with no head. Nice spices sweetness with a boozy burn and a hop bite. Finish is lingering with a hoppy aftertaste. Sweetness is followed by intense bitterness. Fun to taste but couldn’t drink a lot.

wxman (1414) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a thin but retentive off white head. Aroma is burnt candy, caramel and alcohol. Taste is sweet pale malt, buttery caramel and a smoky astringent alcohol character that dominates the flavor. Significant hop bitterness also noted. Big warmth after the swallow. Not bad, but could be better tasting and more balanced if we turned down the ABV to around 9 instead.
