3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Burnt orange with medium, semi-densed, white head, which disappears quickly. Poor lacing. Nice aroma of rotten fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, some cider-like aromas. Taste is semi-sweet, vanilla, light caramel-malty backbone with noticable medium bitter finish. The fruity flavours are not as noticable as the aroma, but still give nice and pleasent sensation. Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky texture, finisj is medium bitter and short. In overall very intersting barley wine not too sweet and pretty well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share at Evernote. Slightly sour / crisp white wine notes that ultimately build to some pretty intense potpourri / floral notes. Not a fan.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Hefty bottle, screams quality. Pours pale dirty brown with a massive super long lasting ultra creamy head, very sticky lacing, clusters upon clusters of fast streams. Feelin’ good about this one.
Nose: woody pressed apple juice, hints of white grape juice, a touch of citrus. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: pressed apple juice
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) red apple juice, toffee malt, oak
Finish: tingly fizzy-tang, vanilla, soft but compounding alcohol hit, light-med warmth, malty bittersweet finish.
Summary: Straight away reminds me of a Belgian blonde; fruity, effervescent, crisp, and alcoholic. Quite skilled to get a wheat ale to behave like this. Fantastic body and character, great drinkability and approachable flavour make this one an interesting brew. Their claim of coconut is more like apple to me. 11.5% ABV, you have been warned.

From a 2013 750 mL bottle. Pours a fully cloudedgolden brown with an off-white head. Tart apple and bourbony aroma. Apple yeasty tart flavor, some bourbon and oak notes. A little watery overall at this point. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thank you gentlefolk! Sampled / shared 750 ml. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Hazy golden orange, little white head. Nose is sweet bourbon mixed with aspirin, rotting orange peel & sugar, lots of aspirin, bourbon layer behind it, weird. Very fizzy body that doesn’t really work esp. with its touch thicker body. Taste is rotting orange peel, rotting zest, bourbon, fizzy, oddly boozy, touch medicine, vitamins, washing powder, thick, bourbon vanilla in the back, lightly sour as well. Drank about 1/4th wasn’t too easy. More weird than enjoyable, didn’t get this beer at all. I asked if it is supposed to tastes like this, apparently yes. Usually The Bruery is decent but this one baffled me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle kindly added from bytemesis in a RB/dG trade. Into a stein then tulip. Nose is Pale thick alc wheat vanilla, marshmallow, hit of oak. Sort of strong sharp prick on the nose that i sometimes think of as oxidation, but I’m sure it’s something else. Gah. Taste is bigger vanilla and bourbon with a rather balanced feel for the strength and alc heat. Rather tasty and i want to taste this again in a couple years to see if it grows the depth of flavor.
