Sweetwater 16th Anniversary Ale: Red Wheat Wine

Discussion in 'South-Atlantic' started by brentjbeaver, Mar 13, 2013.

  1. Just hit shelves at my store in metro-Atlanta today...anybody tried it yet? Sounds a bit strange
  2. Had it at the anniversary party and I enjoyed it. Its a sipper for sure. The only wheat wines I've had before were Gamma Ray and Boogoop so I can only compare it to those. Its definately worth a try, especially if its going for the same price as the other danktanks. $4.99 or $5.99?

    Hope we get it. I haven't seen Some Strange yet.

    Some Strange hasn't hit yet. The Black IPA right?

    I'm looking forward to the Wheatwine actually. Will age well I think. Their 15th aged pretty gracefully I thought. I drank one on their 16th, so it was a good year.

    The amarillo, nelson pairing on the wheatwine sound promising.
  5. From what I heard from the guys at Sweetwater on the 16th anny party, Some Strange has been delayed. They were having some issues just like they did with The Gimp.

    I tried it last weekend at the Beertopia Festival, and was not a fan, but I'm not really into wheat wines in general so I'm not going to be the best judge.

    I had it last weekend on tap up in Nashville, TN. I agree with funkymonk, definitely a sipper. Overall I really enjoyed it, though. Certainly worth a try.
