How well do these cellar? Thinking of acquiring a few more, and want to make sure first.

If it's the Marin Star Wheat then send some my way  :bye:

On Topic: I aged a Harpoon Triticus Wheatwine once for about 14 months and it was great. But I've never had it fresh so take that with a grain of salt.  :unsure:

Is this the NG way of initiating a trade?

If so, than yes, I owe you...

Wheatwines currently in my cellar...

Smuttynose WW
Marin Triple Star
Bell's Wheat Love
WW Homebrew someone tossed into a trade
one or two more I can't remember.

I certainly hope that they cellar ok for a decent amount of time, although I hope to start cracking into them soon.

Just read that tangfoot said that the Wheat Love I just had was 2 years old. I would say they hold up fine, if this is par for the style.

The Batch ID that you entered '7155', is a Bell's Wheat Love Ale. Your Bell's Wheat Love Ale was packaged on December 1, 2005.


Year and a half, not bad at all.

Guess that sounds right... that is when it was made, prolly sat around for a bit before they put it out. As they seem to be doing with the 8000 :rant:

The Two Brothers Bare Tree ages pretty well actually. I'm down to my last two bottles, which are actually this year's batch. Went through the previous years when they got about 12-18 months of age in the cellar.

I never got any of this year's.  Are they still around?  I think I still have 2005 and 2006 bottles in the cellar at home.  I should really get to drinking those.

I think I saw more at Binny's. Try the one out by you this weekend. If not, then let me know, I'll pick some up for you. Worst case, I can send one of mine.

None at Binny's, but I am stopping by Sam's today.  Maybe I will see some there.

The 2006 are all I've ever seen on the shelf here in GB ... they've been stocking them for a little over a year now, I think.

You're right, that doesn't help. :unsure:

Although next time I go to Columbus, OH I'll stop and look.
