COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wet Hot American Wheat is named for it’s particularly “wet” mash and “hot” initial fermentation temperature. It is brewed and dry hopped with Centennial and Columbus hops and utilizes two different kinds of wheat malt, White wheat and Torrified wheat. This beer has an initial sweetness that is balanced by hop additions late in the boil.

Draught @ Kaunis Kampela. Rated on 29.01.2016
Aroma has hrapefruit and earthy notes. Flavour has urinal, grapefruit and earthyness. Bretta is strong here. A bit harsh and floury finish. Refreshing anyway.

Very light smell... Taste has some peanut butter in it, especially on the finish...or something smooth and interesting...good flavor...a little one dimentional but that one unique flavor is great! Maybe really smooth and flowery hops..quickly changed to that flavor instead of peanut butter

The commercial desription’s all "blah blah blah", but what they mean is "we’ve got a brettanomyces infection that we can’t cure", as there’s freaking brett everywhere. However, they are one of the lucky few, this inability to keep your beer fresh has yielded a rather pleasant lambicky wheatiness in both the aroma and the taste. Pure brett - funky/sweaty rather than actual sourness. Lucky bastards. Light palate, drinkabiliy good, refreshing. Wheatiness very pleasant, fits the bretty sharpness well. Nice bittering hops are present, but not in-your-face. I’m curious about the name, how can any mash not be "wet"?

(Keg at Kittys, 20160317) The beer poured clear and mahogany coloured. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and herbalness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, fruitiness, malts, creamy toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste had creamy toffee and bitterness. A nice and soft hoppy pale ale.
