22 oz bottle from the great County Line craze of 2010. Bottle 64 of 96 served up in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours up a beautiful golden color with lots of deep, dark orange and yellow hues. Held to the light, it takes on more of an amber tone with a bit of red pushing its way through. The body is crystal clear with a lively carbonation activity. The pour got me four fingers of rocky white head. The head was so big, it built up and over the glass. Lace is all over the place and just covers the glass all the way down.

S: This smells more like a Tripel than anything. Lots of belgian yeast notes. Banana, bubble gum, spicy. Has a nice boozy quality to it. There is a very nice vinous (grape) fruit aroma along with some pear notes as well. Beautiful.

T: Starts off a lot like the nose. Getting that vinous, tannin like quality with all the Belgian yeast notes. Banana is working well and very present thanks to the yeast and the wheat. Bubblegum sweetness and absolutely some pepper and clove. The wheat pushes through more here. Very earthy on the back end. Booze is present and lingers after each sip.

M: Medium bodied with a medium to heavy carbonation. The beer is creamy when it hits the palate but it drys right up quickly. ABV is there, brings some heat on the throat and belly. Aftertaste is all wheat notes and booze.

OA: Glad I saved one of these for a year. I figured the Belgian qualities would take over and sure enough they did. This beer turned into more of a Tripel with a wheat note. Everything works beautifully together. The dry quality keeps this beer refreshing and easy drinking. Wish I had more bottles of this.
