Blond pour with white big bubbled head. Nose is of oak, light vanilla, and tropical fruits. Taste is thin but boozy. Palate consists of daiquiri’s and bourbon. Quite interesting considering its brewed with wheat.

Draft pour at the beer authority tasting event. Pours a light golden color with a soapy lemon aroma. 2013 pour. Spicy flavor with a lot of yeast and an aged feel to it. A lot of funk to it. Good beer overall. Unique. Tasty.

Orange coloured brew. A big nice holding head. A bit hard to smell, but the taste is nice, with much going on. Wood, vanilla, coconut, white chocolate, citrus. Refreshing and good.

Bottle. Cloudy light orange pour with a big foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is packed with coconut and vanilla. Some wheat, lemon peel, and rum too. Tastes like coconut, bourbon, and vanilla with some caramel and wheat too. So much barrel influence, makes me wonder what the base beer tastes like. A touch of lemon juice in the finish. Odd beer. Decent but just a bit too much coconut and bourbon for me to fully enjoy.

Bottle, shared with my father-in-law. Hazy orange amber, thick off white head that retains nicely. Aroma is raw oak over caramel, vague fruits, green coconut. The palate is somewhat sticky, with fruity caramel dominating, some oaky vanilla and coconut water as background notes. Nice enough.

Smooth, smooth, smooth! Definitely taste the bourbon barrels. Tastes coconutty, general nutty, and finishes clean. Who knew Wheat had this much flavor?
