West Coast Wheat Wine is a huge beer in terms of alcohol strength. 60 percent of the fermentable extract is derived from malted wheat and this lends a quenching drinkability rare to beers of this strength. The hops are 100% American west coast types that are bold and citrusy in character. In the glass, Baird West Coast Wheat Wine is a deep copper-gold color and sports a very tight, creamy-white head. The nose is piquantly complex -? we detect notes of pears, plums, raisins and the ominous foreboding of alcohol. In the mouth, you will experience a panoply of sweetish honeyed-fruit flavors that are washed clean by a robust hop bitterness and a hot alcohol finish.

GarrettB (1658) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2017
February 20th, 2015 - This serving is the 2014 edition, colored a brilliant gold in the pub's light, and looking mostly clear, save for the faintest veil of haze. And don't forget the thick head on top, shining a brilliant contrast of white against the golden body. A great deal of sweetness is evident on the nose, rich with cherry and a slight peachy vein to give the scent some brightness. The flavor is extremely alcoholic, even though this wine has (hopefully) been sleeping away elsewhere, and also tangy, with a discernible tangerine taste echoing from the foretaste to the aftertaste.

Flavors of dark fruit, orange marmalade, caramel, a bit of wheaty spiciness, and some citrus notes in the final. Somewhat dry finish. Medium-heavy body and very warming. Wheat is not so pronounced in this one. Very tasty.
