Member Ratings and Notes

N: Sweet corn prominent initially. Some light grain; maple syrup up front; light hint of black cherries. Gentle wood influence.

P: Sweet - dominated again by corn and maple syrup. Full mouthfeel. Light hint of oranges; a touch of cinnamon. Slight pepper, slight dry wood and a faint celery root note.

F: Vanilla, black cherry, slight earthiness. Warms up nicely. A little oak and root vegetable note on the tail end.
 
Not bad. The finish is a touch harsh and it's a little simplistic on the palate.

Nose: Another great nose. There's an almost Scotch like maltiness to it, along with some buttered toast and even some spice, which is rare for a wheater.

 

Palate: Cream soda.

 

Finish: More cream soda.
