Redux Dulcitude Barrel Aged Wheat Wine by Garage Brewing Co. is being evaluated as a Specialty Wood-Aged Beer (Category 33B) from the 2021 BJCP Style Guidelines.

Redux Dulcitude Barrel Aged Wheat Wine pours a deep copper color with a light haze, which is quite expected from a wheat beer. The off-white head leaves a thin stand of fine bubbles on the beer. The aroma features a prominent oakiness, light spicy alcohol, peach skins and fruit leather, followed by a touch of brown sugar, caramel and bready wheat. The oak is fairly dominant, but as the beer warms the caramel character grows.

The flavor follows with a roller coaster of bready wheat, spicy alcohol, mixed light stone fruit, caramel and dark brown sugar, which then transitions into a touch of vanilla. As the beer passes through mid-palate, a medium-high hop bitterness develops and lingers into a medium-dry finish. There is a moderate oak character, fruit leather and a touch of honey in the aftertaste. It also features a medium-full body, moderate carbonation and medium-light alcohol warming that remains smooth throughout.

This is an enjoyable whiskey barrel-aged wheatwine that clocks in at 11.4% ABV. Although the alcohol is evident, it is also smooth and not dominant. The base beer is well brewed and and plays nicely with the barrel character.
