John Barleycorn is memorialized in English folk tradition as the personification of the barley plant, sacrificed at harvest time and then reborn as beer or ale. Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John’s Midwestern cousin, wheat. Beginning with a large portion of wheat malt, we add an equally generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops and age the ale on both French and American oak. The result is a big, warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, highlighted by subtle wine-like notes, and rounding slowly to a long, dry, oaky finish.

Please note that our Smokestack Seasonal beers will vary in flavor and aroma from year to year. This beer has a fruity aroma with sweet malt notes. The flavor has a complex blend of sweet, bready malt, vanilla, oak, and a slightly vinous backnote. The hop flavors are spicy with a moderate hop bitterness.
