COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wow, four years… time flies when you’re having fun! It has been a wild ride and all along we’ve grown because of support from friends like you. To celebrate turning four, we offer our take on an American original – The Wheat Wine Ale. Copper in color with sweet malts, fruit notes and a nice spiciness. It’s full bodied with a semi-dry finish courtesy of the Belgian yeast we used to ferment it. Thank you for your continued support of our dream.

ben4321 (4839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 3/13/15, Bottled June 2013

Aroma: Has a sweet, grainy aroma, dark fruit, caramel, raisin, and a little brown sugar
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish color with a small beige head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, fairly heavy sweet, with a good amount of boozy flavor
Palate: Medium bodied, overly sitcky, with average carbonation, and a sticky finish
Overall Impression: This isn’t a bad beer by any means, but it needs something to balance out the stickiness that just kind of takes over.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2015
650 ml bottle with it labeled #1076 of 1248 bottled June 2013. Ruby color Ina chalice that shows thin white head. Aroma is quite nice, rich dark fruits( plums, raisins, and figs) some light sugar with caramel.

Medium in body with a lightly sweet texture. Booze is not real noticeable but does show a nice light warming after the sip. The flavor is rather nice and mimics the aroma. I would say if you have a bottle drink now but it seems like it could sit another 12 months and be totally fine. Good brew.
