A Note on This Beer
Vinepair calls Wheatwine “The most extreme craft beer you aren’t drinking.”
First brewed circa 1987, the style really began to crane its neck out from the underground just a few years ago.
And, it’s all thanks to brewers with a flair for the big, bold, and extreme — brewers like Adroit Theory!
These heavy metal-loving Virginians lean into this newer style with gusto. Forged in malty, boozy sweetness (akin to its Barleywine brethren), Wheatwine separates itself with wheat making up most of its grain bill. The end result is a brew with a smooth body and low bitterness that makes its massive complexity easily sippable!
In today’s particular 11.1% ABV glass, the thick, rich mouthfeel is present from the get-go. Sweet, malty flavors coat the palate with notes of caramel, honey, and freshly baked biscuit. These distinctive baked-good flavors aren’t adjuncts — this is a true-to-style Wheatwine in all its extreme, flavorful glory!
I used to think metal band names like “Cannibal Corpse” and “Suffocation” were the most extreme things on the planet. But, with today’s glass of Death Metal Wheatwine, I may have to think again.
