What Would Eli Drink?
Marin Star Brew (Wheat Wine Style)

Star Brew Triple Wheat Ale “Wheatwine Style Ale”

WWED Grade: A-

Appearance: Clear. Fire orange. Great head – bright white. Nice retention.

Smell:  Apples. Light wheat/yeast. Floral esthers.

Taste: Mmm…YUM! Slightly sweet with a hint of caramel. Definitely got a bitter bite at the end here. The high alcohol comes through.

Drinkability: Very drinkable and smooth.

ABV: 9.2% YEAH!

Serving Type: 22oz poured in pint

 

Mmmm…this was goooood. Kinda creamy to drink. They describe this as a smooth sherry-like “Wheatwine” style ale. Playing off the Barleywine style I’d assume. Seems about accurate. A wheat style beer with the bite of hops and alcohol found in Barleywines. You could easily pair this with foods like most wheat beers. Salads, burgers, poultry – it’s pretty versatile. But the 9.2% abv will certainly catch up to you faster than your typical wheat beer (normally between 4.5 – 5.5). DRINK IT!
