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.

No head, very astringent taste, very strong beer, I guess it just isn’t my type though

Smells super boozy. Some hops, some spice but overall sense I get is this is a booze bomb. Taste is bitter, mostly from the alcohol and a little sweet. Pours clear amber brown. No head. Not bad.

Aroma is wheat malt, mild nuttiness and notes of fruit. The flavor is very malty, a mix of wheat and barley malts, a thick palate and a mildly tart/warming alcoholic finish.

boFNjackson (4118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle (2011 vintage)... Poured rusty red with a thin head. Just a year old and showing signs of aging. Note to self: Drink fresh from now on. Sort of a soy sauce character on both the nose and the flavor. Mild, mellow carbonated mouthfeel. Sweetness and oxidation initially on the palate. Some smooth wheaten flavors, and mild alcohol warmth.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-copper color with almost no head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but I get some hints of wheat and alcohol to the nose. Very strong. Some you can feel and taste the high alcohol content in this, and it’s very effervescent on the palate. Interesting.

The beer is supposedly a combination of a barley wine and a wheat beer. It is lovely. It has a big, malty sweet nose, nice golden-amber color, and a smooth wheat-like finish. It’s got a bit of heat and lacks some head retention, but all in all, it’s really good!

Pour is a copper with a small tan head. Aroma is of toffee and brown sugar. Flavor is more toffee, caramel and a very spicy wheat malt backbone. Finish has a very herbal grain and earthy malt. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a decently flavored barley wine with a nice harvest fresh wheat.
