Brewed using wheat grown on Wisconsin's own Washington Island, Kirby has created a refreshingly different ale for all to enjoy.

So, this is one of my all-time favorite beers. In 2006 when this debuted as a summer seasonal, I couldn’t get enough. Then in 2007, it started becoming part of regular production. There is a lot of wheat on the nose, but earthy wheat, most likely coming from the wheat from Washington Island which is where the wheat for this ale comes from. On the palate, there is a little sweetness, but balanced out by the earthiness of the wheat. Not a whole lot of hops present. A great easy drinking beer for a hot, humid summer day.

From a bottle poured in a shaker. Pours the most slightly cloudy pale. Aroma is fizzy flour. Flavor is sweet and pleasant and light grain. Refreshing but probably on the bland side. Very nice lawnmower beer but not much more than that. Solid for a filtered wheat.

Pours a cloudy yellow with little remaining head. No lacing after a while. Lemony aroma, but only slightly noticeable. Taste is a typical american wheat ale. An average brew, nothing special

Drank from the bottle. Nice wheat flavor and somewhat biscuity. Carbonation fits the bill well also. Easy to drink, very sessionable.

Bottle. From notes. Wheat and yeast with a good dose of lemon tart and sweetness. Good, but not great.

I really liked this beer. Although quite a bit more biscuity than most wheat beers it still holds its flavor. Probably my favorite summer beer as it doesn't have an overwhelming citrus flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample from bottle at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL from variety pack. Not bad.

From notes - I wasn’t a huge fan of this one. Sample pour appears light hazy straw; nose is of corn, grains, light malt, sweetness, straw. Flavor is similar with notes of corn, malt, wheat, grainy... Lighter in body. I may have wanted more crispness in this one. Not my favorite.
