To honor 14 years of making craft beer we decided to brew a wheat wine. This unfiltered brew is made with over 50% wheat to give it a distinctly spicy character. Enjoy it now, or if you have the patience, give it some time in your cellar. When you are ready, expect to find notes of tart wheat and honey with crisp bitterness and carbonation. Recipe by Head Brewer Chris Wilson and Brewer Jeff Musselman.

Hazy apricot, plenty of particulates and a quickly fading odd-white head. Aroma of alcohol, wheat, light citrus, brown sugar, toffee and a touch of oak. Taste is big and malty with booze, wheat, caramel and brown sugar.

DiarmaidBHK (4455) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Plours brown with a thin khaki head. Lots of alcohol and dark fruiti on the nose and on the tongue. A bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Meh!

mansquito (5976) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Whole Foods, Vienna VA: For some reason there was a bottle or two of this left at the whole foods (I guess that shows how often they restock the beer selection). Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, booze, liquor, and some more sugary malt. Taste is very malty, but fortunately not exceedingly sweet. I suppose the wheat character makes this a little lighter than the barley wines, but it doesnt make it any less boozy. In either case, I think this gave me a headache. I dont know if it properly aged or not.

Light haze on this amber - gold beer. Little white bubbly head. Banana and cloves snout. Dry palate with very moderate carbonation. Dry spicy wheat, unsweet banana. Fair bit of alcohol aniseed. In your face and lacking any subtely.

PhillyCraft (6775) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours murky orange with a frothy, off-white head. No lacing, and the head recedes quite quickly. Aroma of alcohol, scotch, raisins, barley, lemon zest, and hints of pepper and corriander. Medium bodied with a rich, warming, alcoholic mouthfeel. Clean finish with a pretty strong burn. Overall, an interesting brew, but the alcohol is slightly too aggressive for the wheat foundation. Worth a taste if you can find a bottle.

arminjewell (9553) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks to Aaron for the pour! Dark brownish red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, dark fruits, hints of caramel, biscuit, touch of slight yeast. Taste is some sweet dark fruits, biscuit, toffee, some slight honey and floral notes, touch of caramel, finishing fairly sweet.

adnielsen (10583) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle @ Armins house. Thanks Baker! Reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Sweet caramel, light banana, toffee aroma that strangely enough reminds me of a doppelbock. A little spicy, fairly light fruity, banana, pear, rich caramel, wheat malty flavor. This has held up pretty well.

Bottle @ Grand Cru in Rhineback... Poured amber/copper orange with an off-white head. Tons of floating yeast. Nose had lots of sweetness with very-like fruit eaters. Warming alcohol heat with, faint hops, caramel malt sweetness. Dense and conplex. Lots of dark fruit characters and booze.

Pours a clear and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, fruit, alcohol and wheat. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer.
