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.

Wow. This was a potent wheat bomb of flavor with tons of yeasty character. The 10% ABV was adequately well hidden. The beer reminded me of the wonderful Two Brothers Bare Tree Weiss Wine.

Weird, I feel like it was a deep earthy IPA. Big hoppy notes, red amber colour, not what I typically see in a barley wine. In fact, I don’t see much wheat characteristics at all, and there is no aroma to suggest a wheat beer. Basically a big IPA, maybe wrongly labled???

Thanks to gputty for sharing this one. Caramel-orange pour, zero head. Nose is slightly floral, hops, wheat, some malt. Aromas are not strong, but easier to pin down after it warms. Flavor is wheat and hops, with the barley wine flavors coming through as it warms up. Citrus-ish finish, a bit of the alcohol lingers. Really a rather pleasant offering, just seems kinda hard to classify.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 Medium amber-orange. Fruity-hoppy nose. Very smooth and weighty texture with a creamy carbonation; kind of chewy. Wholesome malts had an organic quality; wheat germ and crackers. Noticeable alcohol -- fruity and vodka-like; warming. Healthy bitterness; sharp, grassy hops. Overall, decent flavors; aromas seemed a bit restrained. Sweetness was mild, but the beer seemed to be balanced.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Almost zero aroma, big disappointment there. Flavor is ok but pretty uninteresting. Big yawner.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Bright crimson hued. It is lacking aroma, unfortunately and I wonder why. Light hints of fruit and coconut, but it’s very subtle overall. Flavor is very rich and enjoyable, with coconut flavors so authentic, it makes you think it was aged in some barrel. White pepper, butter toffee and cream flavor, with a soft, succulent smooth texture. Wish the aroma was better, but this is still a very nice, enjoyable beer.

Tiny head, light copper color. Candied aroma. Taste is pretty sweet, highlighted by more candi sweetness. Medium alcohol burn. Nice mild malty sweetness. Finish is clean. Very barleywine like, with little wheat beer characteristics, still good.

brown in color, no head at all. has a light hoppy aroma. Starts off decent, but over time the taste will start wearing on you.
