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.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with thin orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, grassy, and fruity - especially oranges, as well as a light note of wheaty. The flavor has strong notes of over ripe fruits, wheat, and alcohol, leading to a slightly bitter finish. The alcohol leaves a slight burn on the palate.
