Formerly Wheeler Wheat.
The Wheeler Wheat is our latest mainstay and is a result of input from our staff and customers. People wanted refreshment and Wheeler Wheat is all about that. It’s an American-style wheat with 45% malted wheat and select specialty malts. It has a pleasantly mild hop profile and has been enhanced with orange peel and coriander for added refreshment.

Bottle as Backcountry Wheat; bottle says formerly Wheeler Wheat. Poured a goldish color. Aroma was reminiscent of a wit; some spice, wheat and and orange. Flavor was the same, definitely wit-like. A touch on the thin side, but decent overall.
