COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Decadence Anniversary Ale was originally brewed in 2005 to celebrate our first decade in business. Our brewers had such a great time creating it that they decided to brew a new style each year to commemorate our anniversary. Now, nineteen years after we started, we’re proud to present another great addition this ongoing series, AleSmith Decadence 2014 is our interpretation of a Wheat Wine Style Ale. The generous amounts of wheat used in the his beer impart a bready aroma with hints of honey, ripe fruit, and a spicy graininess. In the finish, a pleasant malty sweetness from the wheat is balanced by the addition of German and American hops. Enjoy this special brew now or age it at a cool temperature for a truly rewarding experience.

tmoreau (4509) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2017
Shared 2014, 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters displaying a clear, copper/amber color, with a presentable layer of off white foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was soft grain, subtle spice, caramel sweetness, yet somewhat dry, esters as pit fruit & subtle tropical scent, with lurking alcohol at the ready. The taste was similar, medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, slight, rind-like bitterness, and even tempered booze & warmth. Smooth.
