COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John Barleycorn’s cousin wheat, the great staple crop of Middle America. Wheat wines are a somewhat recent stylistic development, akin to barleywines in strength, but brewed with a large portion of wheat malt, which provides a soft mouthfeel to balance the big body of these warming brews. We add a generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops, and age the beer on both French and American oak, resulting in a beer that opens up with a warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, adding subtle Sauvignon Blanc notes before rounding slowly to a dry, oaky finish. This is a perfect beer for sharing with friends and family as we gather together for the fall and winter holidays. Pairs well with aged cheeses or seasonal squash and pumpkin dishes.

Travlr (25269) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Golden color with a medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma of apples and pears. Flavor has lots of malt, nicely bitter throughout. Decent body. Unusual for the style, but tasty enough.

3.7
Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of byager. Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Refined spicy nose, a little perfumy with a sophisticated barrel character. Rich body, strangely overcarbonated which doesn’t really suit a barley Wine. Overripe fruit, subtle and sophisticated barrel notes with some great aroma hops. Ends a little bitter. Nice one. 250113

3.4
mcberko (18082) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
750mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma is quite vinous (white wine), with wheat, honey, some oak / wood, various light fruits and considerable hoppiness. Flavour brings out the wheat and white wine qualities on top, a little oak, with lots of hops that come in later and linger. Light mouthfeel with average complexity. A little underwhelming, but solid.

3.3
TBone (17699) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Bottled 750ml (BB 01/2009)
Deep golden color, small white head, some lace. Fruity, a bit woody aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity (mango, apple) with some alcohol, wood and light hoppyness. A bit glueish. Tasting more like a strong Belgian ale than a barley wine.
