What the brewers say

“A hopped wheatwine ale aged in bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Vanilla and coconut. Slight wood/oak notes. Sweet wheat and bready malt notes. Big fruit, big citrus, light caramel and cinnamon, light spicy, big honey as it warms. A healthy barrel character, but the focus is clearly on vanilla and fruit. Suggestions of bananas, pineapple, mango, and orange. Some intense sweet wheat notes shine through and provide an intriguing complexity.”

Flavor: “Wheat sweetness. Some vanilla and slight coconut. Oak and wood character are present throughout. Honey and fruity with alcohol warmth in the finish. Moderate tannin bitterness. The barrel carries through, but the wheatwine is still present and contributes a welcomed sweetness to balance some of the barrel tannins and stronger alcohol flavors.”

Overall: “Tasty. Big fruity wheatwine with barrel goodness. A powerful, complex, flavorful strong ale. Barrel character, while present, blends more than dominates. A fun beer that does a decent job pairing the barrel to the wheatwine, despite some small clashes.”
