Wedge Vadim Bora
Draft at the brewery tap during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear brown with a creamy, tan head. Rich dark chocolate is obvious, and it is cut nicely with juicy raspberry tang. Great nuance and integration. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Just a little warmth in the finish, some present sweetness, and lots more blended cocoa and fleshy raspberry. Lovely gear.

Wedge Julian Price Pilsner
Half pour with pizza. Pretty decent Pilsner- about what I would expect from Wegde. Good for style, but nothing amazing. Pours straw yellow and drinks crisp and clean. Nice sunny afternoon brew. Straw and malt dominate upfront- but decently hoppy at the end. Slightlyl floral. Good.

Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Lots of caramel malt on the nose. Dry on the tongue with a solid amount of bitterness on the finish. Not my favorite style but tasty nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wedge Vadim Bora
On tap at source. Itís unapologetically big, dark and bold. Fairly smooth with a full, satisfying mouthfeel. Raspberries come into play nicely at the end- not overpowering but certainly apparent. Nice tart addition. Still a fairly sweet overall impression but well done. Would drink this all winter.

Wedge Community Porter
On tap at source. Really decent porter. All the right dark beer flavors- maple adds a nice mellow sweetness- still hoppy enough to be balanced. Big beer and somewhat boozy- 2015. Pretty full/ slick mouthfeel. Perfect for cold weather sipping outside. 4/16/2016 Half pour to finish off pizza night. More earthy and chocolate than I remember. Almost a dirty nuttiness to it. Big mouthfeel- somewhat stout like. Tasty. Good colder weather brew.

Wedge Creature: Belgian-Style Imperial IPA
On tap at Wedge. Was expecting better. Decent but not outstanding. Pretty light pour and somewhat muddled flavors. Almost too much going on. Perhaps a bit grassy and yeasty for the style. Pretty smooth going down- not overly boozy. Had heard so much about it, was expecting better. In all fairness will give it another chance.

Wedge Paynes Pale Ale
Pours clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma has a note of slightly charred hops - not much else. Flavor has malty and hoppy tones, thatís it. Texture has OK body and little fizz. Fine to slake oneís thirst in this climate-change heat.

Wedge Hellesbock
Pours clear golden with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma is mainly malty, not strong but still promising. Flavor starts out malty and then trots slightly sour fruity and subtle hoppy tones across the tongue. Mouthfeel is about average in the fizz and body departments. What the helles, down a crater.

Wedge Julian Price Pilsner
Pours clear golden with a nice ivory head. Crisp aroma is malty and a little fruity, not strong but still inviting a taste. Crisp, malty flavor is very refreshing - will definitely take the edge off a sweltering day. Subtle hoppy and pear notes peep through. Mouthfeel is fairly fizzy, and former than most pilses I have tried. Worth the price, Julian.

Wedge Strong Scotch Ale
Pours translucent mahogany with a fairly thick light tan head. Malty aroma has notes of cloves and cinnamon. Bold favor teases the palate with toasted malt, caramel, clove and nutty tones. Body is average and not very fizzy, but leaves a flavorful finish. Get your Scotch on.

Wedge Iron Rail IPA
Pours clear golden ambe with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but quite hoppy and woody. Flavor is intensely hoppy and evergreen with malty and subtle fruity undertones. Firm, fizzy body leaves a strongly hoppy finish. Get on this rail!

Wedge Derailed iHemp Ale
Pours transparent dark copper with a fairly thick buff head. Malay aroma is not strong and not promising, but offers a little malt. Flavor, happily, provides far more: malty, woody, hoppy and caramel tones. Could that be a hint of hemp? Sorry, they used only the seeds. Firm body has some fizz, and leaves a nice woody finish.

Wedge Witbier
Pours hazy, opaque golden with a thin eggshell head. Aroma has wheaty, lemony and yeasty notes. Refreshing flavor has a wheaty core that supports lemon, malty and yeasty tones. Firm body has fizz to spare, and leaves a wheaty and lemon finish. Sharpen your wits, and bottoms up!
