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.

(on tap at The Old Toad. ( Joe was being chased by a pan-handler while I was ordering this.) Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a lacy beige head. A lovely barley wine aroma of candy sugar, caramel, toffee and alcohol. Similar flavors and quite bitter with a sweet and grassy linger. Mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Orange golden with a foamy off white head that fades a bit leaving one finger of off white head. Nose is super boozy and fruity, dirty hops, very rough and slightly metallic. Flavor is big, sweet and boozy, light apple, pear, calvados, vodka.

This beer is among the worst Iíve ever had. It tastes like bitter soy sauce. I almost vomited. This is why it was on sale for $2 a bottle.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2012
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.

wlajwl (3803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 30, 2012
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 (4124) - 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 itís very effervescent on the palate. Interesting.
