While most wheat-based ales are light in color and quenching in flavor, this early spring version is hued in tones of emerald-brown and is more richly expressive in flavor than its lighter colored cousin. In the glass, a tightly latticed cap of wheat protein enriched white foam does the introductions. The wholesome, biscuity aromatics of malted wheat are joined harmoniously with floral and spicy hop notes. A first swallow reveals an extremely refreshing quality that manages somehow to also be pleasantly satiating. This really is a hybrid beer that is a unique cross between a Wheat Ale, an Amber ale and a Dark Mild.
