One of my first real ventures into wheatwines.
A: Pours a clear very light orangish amber color that is lighter at the edges. Provides a small off white foam head the dissipates quickly. There is not much lacing.
S: Lots of light clear fruit scents. Ample amounts of citrus (oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit) with a hint of pineapple. Very clean and refreshing smell.
T: Starts off with a nice amount of wheat flavor up front that is quickly balanced and overtaken by the ample amounts of citrus. The citrus, mostly lemons and grapefruit are the most predominant. The wheat comes back a little at the end of the tasting. There is also some undertones of bubblegum and spice on the back end as well.
M: Despite all the citrus tastes there is a boozy taste left on the palate. Not quite as refreshing as expected from the taste but still quite enjoyabale.
O: This was a fantastic beer. Certainly glad I tried it out. Makes me want to try more and more wheatwines. Definitely a sipper but one I would enjoy again in the future.

First two reviews? And I live 250 miles away? Come on locals, get with it. Opened on 5-Sep wtih FTB and Jen. This is from the following day.
A: The wheatwine is a bright autumnal color, equal parts brown and yellow like Seven Mtns in October. A thin head never amounts to much.
S: The tropical aromas are as strong as the freshest pour. Pineapple, coconut, oranges, and mangoes all take a run at the front. All traces of a bold, big wheatwine disappear behind the luscious fruits.
T: Rich, lush tropical flavors abound, the fruits from the nose continuing into the taste. When cold, the tropical flavors are strongest. Only as the ale warms do the wheatwine flavors become more evident. They are big and malty, wheat adding a fullness. The ale eventually, like a river, meanders back to the tropical base, so sweet that it obscures the fullness of the ale. And that is a great factor.
M: Deceptive, so consider yourself warned. Sweet but dangerously strong. The wheatwine's malt base is late to the game, allowing the tropical fruits to hang around longer than they should.
Serving type: growler
