Originally released in 2014 to celebrate our 27th anniversary, Wheatwine is brewed in the Barleywine style, yet contains no barley malt. We reserved a portion of this special brew, racked it into Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels, and let it rest for a year in our cellar. Barrel aging rounds out this big beer.
Wheatwine is brewed with wheat and caramelized wheat malts and hopped with a blend of English and Northwest hops. Complex aromas of apricot, spice, and citrus lead to a smooth palate, blended with notes of caramel, marmalade, and green hop overtones. It pours a rich honey hue and opens up with complex aromas of barrel oak, vanilla and apricot. The spicy hop character has mellowed to accentuate flavors of vanilla, marmalade and dates. It finishes with a remarkable smoothness and a creamy mouthfeel.
Food Pairings: Braised meats including Pot Roast and Coq au Vin. Bacon-wrapped dates and figs. Desserts such as Bread pudding, Lemon panna Cota and Beignets. Assorted cheeses in an array of flavors and textures. Buttery smooth, sharp, sweet and nutty, robust blue to earthy and herbal.
Limited small batch brew released in 2016 in 22 oz bottles and draft. A hardy brew that ages well.
