COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tropical Heatwave Wheat Ale is an American Wheat Ale, generously hopped with Kohatu hops from New Zealand. The Kohatu hops provide a very tropical flavor that fit perfectly with this summer ale.

On tap, New World Brewery. Not much to say about this one - hazy pour, small head, citrus aroma, creamy citrus taste. Pretty much exactly what you expect a wheat ale to be - nothing extraordinary but a fine example of the style.

Initial flavor is very bitter especially for a wheat. Very nice citrus flavor. Finish is a bit astringent.

Shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt. The beer is golden yellow hued with a small, fleeting white head. The appearance is mostly clear, with only a slight haze. The aroma offers wheat and some pungent malt. Smells ok. The flavor is dry and tart with an abundant wheat character. Dank hops play a major role as well. Again, ok. Lingering dryness and mildly tart wheat. Overall, mediocre beer from an outstanding brewery. Still worth a try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-18-2012

sample at FBG beerfest. Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, melon and bitter hops. Taste follows, nice light and refreshing wheat beer.

From the bottle. Golden pour with a white frothy head. The aroma is earthy and hoppy. The taste has some hop character with some citrus notes and some grainy malt. Refreshing and good brew.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a 3 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Med body. Flavors of wheat, citrus and tropical fruits. Rather dry, mildly bitter. Cleaner than many wheat beers. Quite pleasant.

marcus (8696) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours piss yellow with a fluffy white head and a floral fruity aroma. There is a dry wheat flavor with some slightly sour fruit. Sticks to the palate and is very refreshing.

750mL bottle pours clear gold with near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice load of nearly vibrant, for the style, hoppiness and earthy green leaf notes. Smells yummy. The taste is firmly hop forward, again for the style, with a pleasing mix of lemon, lime and grapefruit all tempered by mild levels of malts, grainy malts, a bit of cereal and wheat. Great hot weather brew and I love the hop forward aspect as it increases the sessionability of it.

750ml bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a cloudy golden-orange colored body with an inch thick, dense, frothy and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Good looking beer. Aroma is pretty crisp wheats with a light bready sweetness, a light grass, and a light citrus lemon, tropical fruit, and melon. Flavor is similar. Light lemon-grass up front before a crisp wheat comes in with some graininess and a touch of bready sweetness. A few grassy tropical fruits and a light melon note before this finishes crisp, clean, and dry with a medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and a somewhat lively, crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a somewhat hopped up wheat ale with a light fruity note and a grassy bitterness. Clean and crisp wheats with a refreshing carbonation. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

Bottle at CCB Day, Sätila 2012-07-07. Pale yellow clear beer with a white small lacy head. Tropical fruits, hoppy and a bit sourish flavour. A nice beer :-)
