COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not always a good thing when your reputation precedes you. But the complexity of this powerful wheat wine will give it a Sweet Repute no matter where, when or how your paths meet. Our brewing team painstakingly choreographed each layer of this beer’s characteristics, starting with a healthy wheat and roasted malt base and adding clean, fragrant hops. It’s one-hundred percent barrel aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels and bourbon barrels over the course of sixteen months, then blended using carefully calculated ratios for the ultimate final product. The resulting 12.6% ABV liquid pours a bright warm russet with a stubborn ivory head and an intoxicatingly sweet nutty aroma. Take your time allowing the layers of flavors to unfold… Because it’ll only get better.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is complex, full of maple syrup, caramel and bourbon. Flavour brings out loads of vanilla upfront, followed by maple syrup, and a little booze. Very sweet gr the vanilla, but not cloying in any way. Surprisingly nice - I was expecting a nastily cloying sweet bomb. Very nice stuff.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown hue with an average to large off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex aroma of sweet bourbon, malt and soft hop.
