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.

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

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 (3791) - Everett, 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

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Hazy apricot, plenty of particulates and a quickly fading odd-white head. Aroma of alcohol, wheat, light citrus, brown sugar, toffee and a touch of oak. Taste is big and malty with booze, wheat, caramel and brown sugar.

DiarmaidBHK (3531) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Plours brown with a thin khaki head. Lots of alcohol and dark fruiti on the nose and on the tongue. A bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Meh!

Whole Foods, Vienna VA: For some reason there was a bottle or two of this left at the whole foods (I guess that shows how often they restock the beer selection). Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, booze, liquor, and some more sugary malt. Taste is very malty, but fortunately not exceedingly sweet. I suppose the wheat character makes this a little lighter than the barley wines, but it doesn’t make it any less boozy. In either case, I think this gave me a headache. I don’t know if it properly aged or not.

Light haze on this amber - gold beer. Little white bubbly head. Banana and cloves snout. Dry palate with very moderate carbonation. Dry spicy wheat, unsweet banana. Fair bit of alcohol aniseed. In your face and lacking any subtely.

PhillyCraft (3435) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours murky orange with a frothy, off-white head. No lacing, and the head recedes quite quickly. Aroma of alcohol, scotch, raisins, barley, lemon zest, and hints of pepper and corriander. Medium bodied with a rich, warming, alcoholic mouthfeel. Clean finish with a pretty strong burn. Overall, an interesting brew, but the alcohol is slightly too aggressive for the wheat foundation. Worth a taste if you can find a bottle.
