Weíve 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

Itís an American wheat! Tastes a little thinner and less crisp than their first release of this in the bomber. That said awesome beer with half acres hop up front way about it. Itís got the light wheat feel with a super nice hop nose and tastes with good bitterness. Kind of big brother to TALLGRASS halcyon( forget the rating ) Thatís an American wheat worth trying along with lagunitas little sumpin sumpin...go half acre!!!

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Honey golden with a fluffy white head. Lots of white solids came with the final pour. Wheat crispness and tropical fruit define the aroma. Bitterness is not real big but it is biting and dry. Lots of tropical fruit along with that bitterness. Pine is tasted with tangerine. Grapefruit comes with warming. It works out to be a hoppy wheat ale. This is a pleasant summertime beer and the moderate ABV is appreciated.

Pours lightly hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with tangerine, wheat, tangerine and light pine. It has a lighter body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has drier malt, woodiness, citrus and pine. Very nice and super easy drinking.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Tastes wheat, hoppy, summery. I thought this was good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
