Old Review
12 oz bottle that I picked up at Bruisin' Ales last week in Asheville, NC. Was really to see this in 12 ozers considering these anny beers from Weyerbacher are traditionally in bombers. From my experience with Wheatwines, they are better in smaller doses and to be savored instead of slammed in mass quantity. Alright, to the beer. Served up in a snifter.

A: Pours a very nice dark honey color. You have some orange, yellow and brown going on in here. Held to the light, this beer doesn't change color much. The best I can put is that it just lightens up a touch, still the same colors just a touch lighter. The pour bubbled up a slow finger of bright white head. It slowly fades to a thick ring going on here that stays and is accompanied by a thin oil slick of foam. Good and thick sheets of lace are on the glass after each sip, but these ease slowly back in due to the slick film that sits on the glass. Very nice in presentation.

S: I really do think this is the best part of this beer. Big time aromas coming out of this snifter. Starts with some heavy wheat of course. Tons of spicy and earthy presence which is what I expect from the style. Quite awesome. Behind that is what can be best described as if you were freshly cutting bananas and apples for a fruit tray. The banana is so BIG. Just so fresh and present. To mellow it out a touch you get some honey, clove and caramel presence. Floral hops are present for sure but not really shining, this is really a malt and wheat forward beer . . . and I love that.

T: This starts up again like a big ass imperial hefe. Big time and amped up wheat flavors. Nice and spicy with some good peppery flavors mingling with some good earthy and an almost leather type flavor. Then you get that huge banana flavor. Yet again so clean and very prominent. Slight apple flavor. Cloves and honey are sweetening it up a bit. Would have gotten better marks but the alcohol is very present. Tons of alcohol flavor (not just burn), you can taste the alcohol and it is a bit much at times. Still good stuff.

M: Big full bodied brew, very slick and sticky. Carbonation is light and just a touch of crispness in here. The alcohol is hot, yes sir. Tons of alcohol burn in the throat and the stomach. The wierd part is the residual and very lasting burn this beer has. It sticks with you. I think I am sweating. Aftertaste is booze and bananas.

D: Well, this is a very nice beer. The aromas and flavors are great. I dig it for sure. It only got average marks in drinkability because of the alcohol presence. Just a ton of a booze really does take away from the drinking experience. This is a slow sipper for sure but thats the style. It should be a big beer and this is absolutely that. Damned good beer and I look forward to trying one many months from now when this has cooled off a bit.
