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

On tap. Hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma is mellow, mostly wheat, with some light citrus. The flavor is similar, with some lemon, maybe lime on the finish. Bitter finish makes this a little less enjoyable. Light body.

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.
