We’ve been making fun of wheat beers for a long time. Low hanging fruit, I guess, but we brewed one. Our packaging team was riding the topic pretty hard. They wanted to see an american wheat brewed with australian hops. And since they work their fingers to the nub and are a pretty rad group of chaps, we took the bait and slammed this brew in the tanks.

A ridable 5.5% abv will host some wheatey nuts & juicy Motueka hop bolts. The deliverer of this truth: Akari Shogun, He who harnesses light will usher this summer force into your life.

Akari Shogun American Wheat, coming to you soon, friends

16oz can. Pours golden orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, pine, and hops. Definitely doesn’t smell like a wheat beer. Taste is of wheat and hops. You can actually taste the wheat, so it’s not overly hopped. Lots of citrus and pine as well. Lingering taste of pine. Finish is slightly soapy. Drinks really easy.

Light straw yellow with a thick spongy head. Subtle fresh flavor. Taste is well-balanced with slightly sweet grapefruit peel, spice and lemongrass flavors. Light body, slightly oily finish. I wish the body was a little heavier to really bring out the savory wheat character, and the palate is a little flat -- but this is still a good beer.

With Zachary, pours a hazy golden rusty orange color with a large foamy head. Nose is lemony and grainy with an appealing fragrance. Taste is citrusy with a predominance of lemon and some hoppines, not a big wheat ale fan...but this is quite drinkable. Finishes on the same tasting notes, dry and moderately long. Descent ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Keg at Mikkeller, Stockholm. Cloudy golden, mid sized head. Light aroma of dill, coconut and citrus. Dry with light body and clean mouthfeel. Mild citrus, some coconut and pine. Low bitterness. Clean and hard, but quite refreshing.

16 oz can pour. Thanks Eugene. Awesome to get the chance to try a brewery that is brand new to me. Pours a super cloudy pineapple juice color. To much surprise to me, the aroma is filled with hops. Amazing hop aroma it is with some citrus. Not your typical wheat ale in my opinion. A lot of citrus flavors thoughout with a mellow hop finish. Really nice, easy drinking beer with a ton of flavor. Orange and lemon for sure. Interesting beer here, I really enjoyed this. Hope to see more from these guys in the near future.

16 oz can generously given out by a coworker and crushed with Honkeybra. Pours a bright, hazy yellow with a white head. So much citrus on the nose, with some lingering sulfur, but it’s not offensive. Could probably crush this all day.
