COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Wheat Beer Fermented with Muscat Grape Must & Pear Juice

Missionario celebrates the intersection of cultures that occurred in the missions set up all along the Pacific Coast of the Americas.

Wheat and muscat wine grapes were among the plants brought over from Spain, being tasty as well as essential for church services. In honor of the many other crops grown in Mission gardens, we’ve chosen pears for this version of Gran Missionario. It is creamy, dry and fruity in a most complex way, with aromas of flowers and spice.

It is a sophisticated beer capable of complementing a wide range of foods from crab tamales to sheep cheese to apple pie.

Draft at Hopleaf, April 18. Sweet smelling ale. Once you get a sip of it (hard for me since I’m standing while juggling this beer, my phone for recording notes, and a cone of frites), the grape must comes out in the nose. Very similar to Dogfish Head’s 61. Orange color with a very thin head. Just a nice-drinking beer. This grape must thing seems to be an encouraging trend in fruit beers. A great idea that I hope more brewers add to their lineups.

750ml bottle 10/15/14 (Binny’s Naperville)-49° in Mug-Pours a heavily carbonated yellow with a big full white head. Aroma of wheat, pear, yeast, and grapes. Taste of the same with some more grape and spices. This beer is a nice change and quite enjoyable.

Draft at Six Ten Brewing ( Tampa, FL ). Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a foamy white head. Very nice lacing along the glass. Aroma is heavy on the grape must up front with trailing wheat notes. A lot going on in the flavor including the grape and pear along with a nice combination of spices. Very interesting beer. Looking forward to trying more from this brewery in the future.

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Thanks match1112. Pours a clear golden amber body with an ever lasting head of soapy white foam. Nose is a little black pepper, soap, and biscuits followed by loads of pears and white grape juice. Taste is light spice followed by grape and pear juice. A little bubble gum/banana ester on the finish. Starts off so juicy but finishes dry and clean. Kinda basic but this is super tasty and refreshing. Awesome witbier.

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, fruit and wheat aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with local raters. Pours a totally hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Great orange peel, light spice. Some belgian yeast, light spiciness. Interesting bigger bodied belgian wheat beer. Bigger bodied, yet the flavor manages to still be refreshing.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and wheaty with notes of pear and grape. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant, fairly dry mouthfeel. Good beer.

Draft. Nice dry beer, the wine-esqueness is there and the added grains help the malt bill develop complexity.
