3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Bottle @ Armin’s house. Thanks Baker! Reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Sweet caramel, light banana, toffee aroma that strangely enough reminds me of a doppelbock. A little spicy, fairly light fruity, banana, pear, rich caramel, wheat malty flavor. This has held up pretty well.
