COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Designed as a flavorful session beer, Oarsman Ale uses a classic German brewing technique to impart a light, refreshing tartness. Oarsman Ale grew out of a desire to explore the tradition of session beers, trading intensity for finesse while still creating a worthwhile experience for the taster. The grain bill includes a healthy portion of wheat, while light hopping lend citrus & herbal notes to the aroma. Fermented with Bell’s house ale yeast, Oarsman comes in at 4.0% alcohol by volume. Rather than being the dominant flavor note, the tartness in Oarsman takes on more of a palate-cleansing role, making it perfect with meals or purely on its own.

Pours a clear golden with white head, and decent lacing throughout. Malty, dryness, as well as some citrus hints in the flavor. Aroma is of very tart citrus and the tartness starts to impact the flavor way too much after a few sips. Way too imbalanced in the tartness for my tastes.

Clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma of citru, wheat and light tartness. Taste of citrus, grapes, light tartness but mostly sweet, light hoppiness. Yeah, this one is too light for me.

Lilja (2684) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2016
Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Smak och doft av vete, jäst, citron. Frisk, mjuk och len, viss syrlighet och sötma, aningen ciderkaraktär, anonym men god.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Pours a straw yellow color with white head. Wheat, spice, citrus, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a surprising tart note, refreshing but unexpected with this style of beer.

12 oz can. Pours a cloudy straw colored yellow. Thin white head. Taste slightly tart with apple or pear undertones. Nothing special. Could be nice and refreshing on a hot day, but there are probably better options.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a crisp yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Once again, Westy’s strikes with a 2yr old case of a 4% beer. Anyway, all I got out of this one was really, really tart sour flavor and lightness. Maybe I would revisit, but I’m not a huge Weisse fan.
