Here’s a twist on a wheat ale. How about a bunch of caramel malts and some cascade hops? We thought it sounded good too. We used our house ale yeast at a low fermentation temperature to keep the ester production low, unlike a traditional hef. A light touch of cascade aroma finishes this session-able wheat ale real nicely. Tip one back!

On tap at OBF. Pours a light copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet caramel and fruit hop nose. The flavor is really sweet, funky, diacetal maybe, pine, citrus. Very smooth. Pretty nice. Caramel and light pine.

Tap at OBF 2015. Pours very hazy, arguably reddish, amber with a light beige color head. Aroma of mixed citrus and fruit. Med body or so. Flavor is wheat, but oddly not. Lots of tropical fruit suggestions, It’s very flavorful.

Sampler at the PDX Brewery & Public House. Light bready aroma with a touch of Cascade hops. Reddish-brown color, slightly cloudy. Initial flavor: same yeast as Mirror Pond / light coffee cake mid palate with some caramel and cinnamon. Medium body. Very mild, drinkable, but not really impressive. Does not taste at all like a wheat.
