COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon Barrel Aged Wheatwine was brewed in the Barleywine style, using 100% malted wheat and left to age in Wild Turkey bourbon barrels for 10 months. It pours a rich honey hue and opens up with complex oak aromas of vanilla and caramel blended nicely with notes of toffee, marmalade and dates. Barrel aging rounds out this big beer by adding a rich tannic structure.

Bomber, 2016 vintage. Rich bourbon aroma with notes of caramel, vanilla, oak and wheat malt. Pours clear amber colored with a thin tan head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with rich caramel and wheat malt flavors with a full body and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with nice bourbon, vanilla and oak flavors with a big warming boozy ending. Pretty nice.

Cybercat (6208) - Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Pours clear sepia with a nice buff head. Strong, sweet aroma features, caramel, toasted malt, bourbon and woody tones. Flavor offers sharp fruity, caramel, malty, bourbon and wood character - and an appreciable alcohol bite. This is a beer to be sipped slowly and savored. Mouthfeel offers firm body and fair fizz. Wheat, wheat wine!

The wife did all the scoring on this one, she liked it a lot. She says the 12% beers are her undoing. I would agree ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear deep copper hue with a thin white cap. Bright woody bourbon nose and a sticky wheaty caramelly malt aroma with gentle raisin and date. Big full boozy palate with bourbon and toffee and wheat bread and warm phenolic alcohol flavors with light date and raisin and caramel sweetness. Big and boozy and warm and fruity with bourbon and oak and vanilla and carmalley wheaty malt sugars.

22 ounce bottle, let sit about 7-8 months, I’d say it needs about 3 years more to balance out but not sure if the thin mouthfeel would stand up .. Heat, bourbon, warm wood, I think it’s lunch time .. . Good but very simple .. . . Let’s bee friends! ... fuck off

Tmoney99 (15030) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark amber color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, wood and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.

DocJitsu (2040) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Pours a clear, brown-copper with a light taupe-tan head. Carbonation bubbles struggle to creep to the surface just after it’s poured. Prominent oaky vanilla nose with a subdued ester quality on the nose. Thick with a fine, light sting in the mouthfeel. Faint fruit yields quickly to rich caramel, oak, vanilla, and coconut.

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the Bengals group. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, wheat malts, bourbon, dark fruits, vanilla, wood, some bitterness to the finish, better than expected.

3.7
degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours a very dark amber or light brown with a creamy, mixed-grained, light tan head that leaves lace. Nose is brown sugar, maple, date candy, vanilla, egg custard, and bourbon. Massive up front, with date jam, Nutella, and vanilla custard notes; the bourbon is well balanced, and there’s even a touch of the Wild Turkey smoky bite. Finish is long, warm, and a little drier, with good toasted bulgur elements. Damn, this is nice.

3.8

22oz bottle from the state store

Pours clear dark golden with a small off-white head, light lacing. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and leather. Flavor of bourbon, woody, vanilla and caramel

Good
