COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmhouse Wheat Ale. Easy to drink, but hard to pin down, Balloon Boy is a refreshing Belgian-style wheat that is fun for the whole family.* Subtle tart citrus up front gives way to a beautifully complex fruitiness. A wheat ale that sits well with every kind of beer drinker.

This seems lighter and less witbier-ish than Atlas Farmhouse. Maybe I am nuts though. It is blond and cloudy w/ a huge foamy head. Its nose is kind of floral and spicy--very saison-ish. It’s a bit creamy but fairly light due to crisp carbonation and quite drinkable. It finishes dry w/ just a touch of bitterness to keep you honest. Definitely a good one for a summer day.

[Tap] Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large amount of white head. Wheat malts and floral hops in the nose. Wheat, light lemongrass and mild yeasty notes in the taste. Some straw and light grassy hops in the finish. Thin to medium bodied. Nice lacing. Not bad.
