COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To honor 14 years of making craft beer we decided to brew a wheat wine. This unfiltered brew is made with over 50% wheat to give it a distinctly spicy character. Enjoy it now, or if you have the patience, give it some time in your cellar. When you are ready, expect to find notes of tart wheat and honey with crisp bitterness and carbonation. Recipe by Head Brewer Chris Wilson and Brewer Jeff Musselman.

Thanks Clint A: pours burnt caramel, central opacity bordered with golden hues. No indications of carbonation. Looks like Tomme mighta helped with this one... S: Cool. Smells like Bananas Foster and some nougat. Intriguing. T: Cola, flat cola flavor. Some slight weed ash, mixed with more hints of banana. After taste is unconventionally infantile: as in, reminds me of diapers out of the package. M: Nearly flat and relatively thick feeling. Sticky and I try not to get much on my lips as the residual sugars are certainly daunting. O: I don’t really care for this. The nose is awesome, but the flavor is a letdown. Mouthfeel is also very poor. Serving type: bottle 12-07-2011

12oz bottle from who knows where. Been siting in a trunk for a few years. Hazy brown pour with a thin off-white. Aroma is brown sugar, bread and spice. Tastes are sweet sugary, honey, roasted malts, citrus, spices. Boozy. Lots happening, but not my bag - too sweet.

Honey and rum aroma. Lightly wheaty taste with brown sugar with brandy aftertaste. Fairly full bodied as well.

Cracked a bottle of this for the first time in awhile. Poured a dark hazy brown, smelled strongly of honey and surprisingly boozy given its age. Definitely sme brown sugar and a sharp almost brandy-like aftertaste.

Aroma of bananas foster, sugar and slight wheat. Pours light red with foamy film. Taste is sweet banana, brown sugar, and rum. Delicious.

2013.01.11 - Weyerbacher Fourteen (Anniversary 2009) - 12oz bottle in goblet. Pours a cloudy caramel or raisin medium dark tan. Almost no carbonation but there is a trace ring that laces a bit and a tiny island cap in center. Holding up to light shows some bubbles feeding from bottom. Aroma is raisin-y sweetness, reminding me of DFH Raison D’Extra. Very close whiff has a bit of starchiness. Candy sugar perhaps. Taste. Hmmm. Hard to describe honestly. I honestly don’t get a definitive "wheat", but it is 3 years old at this point and I don’t drink a lot of wheat stuff. Basically a bit of medicinal alcohol bite with some "tang" on the front end. Doesn’t really change, just fades away. Mouthfeel is pretty dense and full but not really creamy. Mild to little carbonation. Like I said, I don’t really get wheat from this at this point. It’s more like a cross of DFH Raison D’Extra and a barleywine / old ale like North Coast Old Stock Ale to my taste/experience. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 15/20

BVery (9387) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Slightly murky orange-amber pour with a small soapy head. This one is bizarre, but interesting. Aroma is wheat, sweet caramel, and hot booze. There’s a little honey in here too. Very hot alcohol on the taste - feels in excess of the stated 11.8% - plus some candied sugar and maybe peppermint (or maybe that’s just the booze). Doesn’t look like a beast, but it sure tastes like it.

Bottle. Pours light red with no head. Strange honey aroma. Taste is sweet and hot

maxwelldeux (4322) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy and somewhat bubbly amber color with a moderate head. A lot of wheat and grain notes in the nose. A little sweet with some hints of alcohol to it.

Shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff! The beer is hazy and orange hued with an off white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings citrus fruits, malt, and alcohol. The beer is full bodied, with a heavy citrus and alcohol presence. The finish lingers for a considerable time, with alcohol presence growing in strength as I progress through the beer. This is a good beer to split. Six ounces is plenty. A solid example of the style, I would have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-22-2011
