This is no worn-out, park-bench, special-brew-swigging vagrant; this is an amped-up, ranting, street corner hobo. A lord among hobos if you will. Brewed with mountains of wheat, rye, cara and crystal malts, fermented with an American ale yeast and bittered with Amarillo & Centennial, this 4.2% beer is what happens if something classy like a European wheat beer goes to live in Vegas.
Malts – Extra pale, Cara, Crystal, Wheat & Rye
Hops – Amarillo & Centennial

Pours amber with no real head, a fair amount of carbonation. A nice sweet smell of marmalade and slight woody notes. A fair wheaty taste, with marmalade and slight bitter hoppy notes. Not too bad, but the bottle did expire two months ago.

Barwa bursztynowa, piwo jest klarowne, choć u mnie pływała jakaś pylasta zawiesina. Piana raczej słaba, średnio- i grubo-pęcherzykowa, biała, szybko znikająca. Aromat jest całkowicie zdominowany chmielem, atakuje nas od razu po otwarciu butelki. Najpierw są to słodkie owoce, spod niego wychodzi delikatne zapachy ziołowo-tytoniowe. Po pierwszym łyku wiem, że jest to kolejne american wheat demolujące chmielem! Goryczka jest wysoka i właściwie od początku do końca przykrywa wszystko. Jednak przy całej swej mocy nie odpycha i nie zalega. W smaku dominują wyraźne nuty suszonych liści tytoniu, wydaje mi się, że tak właśnie smakowało by... przeżuwane cygaro. Piwo jest bardzo lekkie, jednak przez specyficzną gorycz wydaje się raczej degustacyjne.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2014
12oz bottle at La Birreria in Andorra. Pours a hazy orange with some creamy white head. Nose is an odd mix, citrus, soap, pine but a wheat ale is lurking with a bit of clove and grass and spice. Flavor brings the IPA character back, mild malt, orange, pine, grapefruit, caramel. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish.
