Bull & Bush 40th Anniversary Wheat Wine
My buddy suggested highly that we go to Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery while in Denver, and the first beer I ordered when we went was the 40th Anniversary Wheat Wine. The beer pours a reddish amber color with thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma is sweet with raisin, wheat, and fig. The taste is rounded on the tongue and smooth. There are raisin, fig, wheat, and Belgian yeast flavors that all come out to play. There is a nice Belgian spice kick on the finish. The alcohol content is not available online, but I would guess it to be approximately 9.0% ABV. I thought the 40th Anniversary was an excellent example of a wheat wine and I would definitely have another glass of it.
