COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

drfabulous (5859) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Draught at Local Option. Hardly a wheat. Wheat in color but most of that taste is coming from a big hop aroma in the nose. Very good.

MacBoost (1687) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Hazy straw yellow pour with an enormous white, rocky head. Aromas of sparkling hops and some zest. Taste is a little on the weak side... slightly watery, slghtly lacking, but spiked with citrusy notes. I like this, for what it is. Not mind blowing, but decent.

Lognar (33) - - SEP 30, 2013
Pours a wheaty gold with an onslaught of billowing white head. The nose is piney hops and grapefruit citrus along with a clean wheat crispness. The taste is bready malt and floral hops, with pine building into the finish. The mouthfeel is decently full for a wheat ale, and with lots of tingly hoppiness. Overall, this is a wonderful and refreshing wheat ale. The fuller body is especially nice and I love the nose on this brew.

Can sample at Canvitational. Poured hazy orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and wheat aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.
