COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not sure what you just drank? Wheat beer? IPA? Yes, it is. This mysterious ale boasts aromas of tropical fruit, a playful bitter edge, and the body and mouthfeel of an American hefe. Big alcohol and rich white wheat make this unfiltered ale accessible to all types of pallets.

Item Nine est orangé. Sa tête est bien montée. Son nez est généreusement fruité: de la banane en purée, de la papaye séchée et des cerises de terre bien parfumées. Son goût est bien musclé. Les malts appartiennent à une armée. Les houblons transpirent l’américanité. L’alcool est au cœur d’un danger. Son corps est de bonne densité. Les bulles ne font que piétiner. La texture est un été bien huilé. Sa finale est une douceur dynamitée: l’amertume est un acte terroriste toujours acceptable lorsqu’elle se fait exploser.

Draft. Straw in color with tons of hop aromas pulling your nose right into the glass. Coriander, wheat bread, apricot, plum, peach and nectar. Long, long finish and great grains.

daleharshman (900) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($9.49). Pours a slightly hazy red-amber hue with a finger and a half of white foam. Aroma of various fruits (both tropical and citrus) with some pine and resiny hops and lesser notes of caramel. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, and spicy hops, but with an unfortunate harsh alcohol burn. Heavy syrupy mouthfeel with some lingering hop bitterness and alcohol burn. Really, there’s wheat in here?? Cause I’m not finding it at all. A bit of wheat subtlety might be nice here. The hops are certainly big and brash but could be much more nuanced (take a hint from the west coast brewers who do big hops but make it interesting). However, it’s the big boozy alcohol that most causes this to fall to mediocre. (71, 810)
