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.

Leighton (11623) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Definitely lighter than a barleywine - and in a good way. Pours a light, amber-red with a moderate white head. Nose of sweet malts and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet, with notes of fruit. Very clean, warming finish. Tasty, tasty delight.

argo0 (11590) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2005
(22oz bottle) Clear amber body with orange-tinted off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, plum, wheat, light turpentine. Taste is sweet, plum/raisin, caramel, some grapefruit, light vanilla. Finishes with some alcohol warming. Medium body, not as thick as most b-wines due to the wheat -- quite easy drinking given the ABV.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
Bomber from Half Time. Pours ruby copper with a decent creamy off-white head. Aroma is like fresh fruit. Dunknow what kind of fruit, but the suggestion is citrus. Full bodied. Flavor is fresh fruit, and there’s a spicey, near wintergreen, thing that hit’s the back of my palate. Wowser. It’s one of those minty kind of things. Really surprising. Just exellently brilliant. Finishing fruity, and well balanced.

Bottle @ thewolf tasting.
[thank you Yngwie/Gunnfryd]
Pours a great clear amber with a creamy soft white head. Good lacing.Fine oily mouthfeel. Aroma is soft, hoppy (grapefruit) and light caramel. Soft flavour as well, lots and lots of alcohol. Not as much creaminess and fullness as expected - where is the wheat?
