COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wheat fields in Europe tend to be used for either battles or beer. War isn’t fashinable these days so the only machine you’ll see in a field is the harvester. Graceful, majestic and with more teeth than Miss World, it reaps wheat while we reap the reward: Weissbier. Wheat Reaper is our take on this German "white beer" style, with smooth notes of clove and vanilla. It’s the best thing since brewed bread.

Sparkling golden yellow in the glass with an enormous quiff of rocky white head that is slowly losing the battle on top of the beer. Plenty of clove aroma there, not so much of the vanilla mentioned in the blurb, but it is there along with a pinch of cardamom and ginger. In the mouth there is plenty of spritzy bubbles and then the warm cascade of cloves and spices. A little malty sweetness and then dehydrated banana toward the finish. There’s nothing wrong with this beer. It won’t be my most memorable wheat beer either, but absolutely nothing wrong with it.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Nope. This one ain?t good. Nothing special, no deep aroma?s, there are much better ones.
