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

22oz bottle purchased at binny’s marcy... bottle yields a hazy somewhat cloudy pale orange brown and topped with a fluffy white head that lingers for a substantial duration... aroma of dank juicy tropical fruits and tangerines, a touch of herbal tea-like essence that coincides with the preceding... flavors are more of the same with orange tangering notes up front while the herbalness and tropical dankness take somewhat of a backseat but are hardly lost in the process. body is lighter shade of medium and adequate carbonation. a bit of orange rind bitterness on the backend that prolongs through the finish. enjoyable.

Can. Pours hazy golden, medium white head, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, perfume, pine. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter. Some perfumy floral hops notes and a wheat ale base. Not fresh perhaps? It just arrived here. Light plus body. Meh

RBSG 2016 shared at the Grand Tasting after-party in the hotel lobby. Can. Clear pale yellow. Lemon peel, light grass, lean crackery malts, bitter finish. Great character for a style that usually is boring.

joeneugs (5630) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 3, 2016
16 oz. can. It pours a pale yellow color with a fizzy head. The aroma is strong with grapefruit and light lemon peel. Hints of orange. Lots of citrus and very crisp on the nose. The flavor is the same. Super dry and crisp with hints of orange/grapefruit citrus with almost no maltiness. Light bodied with low citrusy bitterness. A nice crusher for sure.

Can from Wegman’s poured into a nonic pint glass. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with nice frothy wheat beer foam. Aroma is mild bubble gum, fresh cut grass, mild esters, and lemon peal. Taste is similar with a clean balanced finish light on yeast. Very nice wheat beer.
