What the brewers say

“Generous amounts of wheat impart a bready aroma with hints of honey, ripe fruit, and a spicy graininess. In the n- ish, a malty sweetness from the wheat is balanced by the addition of German and American hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant, refreshing aroma. Moderate sweet wheat, light vanilla, very light oral hops, touch of cinnamon, big bready, light toasted malt. A mild wheat cereal note, but not much hint at things to come.”

Flavor: “Honey-like sweetness, moder- ate oral hops, light vanilla, moderate white wheat bready avor, very light eth- anol warmth. Bitterness is suf cient to balance. Caramel notes offer complexity. For the high alcohol and malt sweetness, its refreshingly clean and crisp.”

Overall: “Both refreshing to the palate and a refreshing take on a strong ale, this wheatwine is as straightforward as it is enjoyable. Well balanced smooth drinking beer. The sweetness of the wheat malt with a light hops bitterness makes this very easy to drink, especially at the alcohol strength. The simplicity of the malt bill really lets the complexity of wheat shine. Well executed and clean.”
