COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Sorachi Ace hops, Glacier County Honey, and locally malted red wheat Shenanigans Summer Ale has a zesty, citrus-filled aroma, refreshingly dry body, and notes of honey that weave in and out of this thirst quenching summer ale. So brave the humidity and enjoy the long days because summer is time for Shenanigans.

My friend said it best, "It smells like... funk. It tastes like... funk. But, in a sort I okay, good way." Not for me. The details: quickly dissipating head, cloudy yellow color, citrus notes (in the funk scent), watery mouthfeel, finishes dry but not too hoppy. Not my favorite.

Golden with big fluffy head. Aroma - wheaty malt and a touch of lemon. Taste - wheaty and a bit of citrus and spice. Dry and refreshing. A typical summer ale. Non-offensive but nothing great. Good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAlum (6926) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a honey yellow hue with some decent haziness that dulls the body. Frothy offwhite head is sizable, creamy, and retains as a nice enough layer with solid lacing around. Aromas are a touch grassy, wheaty malts are bready, with a subtle honey sweetness, mellow fruit, some dryness and earthy appeal. Initial is lighter bodied overall, some grassy earth bitterness and mellow yeastiness meets flaked wheat, a cleaner appeal as the fruity appeal lends itself to a more lemony appeal. Dry yet not bitter really, fresh and a bit grainy with some lemon, gentle sweetness. Cleaner backend with lingering grass clippings, subtle florals and yeastiness. Solid summer wheat.

jeremyh70 (1042) - Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a mostly clear pale golden with a nice white head with tiny bubbles and good lacing. Aroma is MDL with some citrus, wheat and hint of floral. Nice clean and crisp taste with a bit of perceived sweetness from the honey flavors. Some dusty wheat flavor maybe more like a wheat crackers along with a small amount of citrus zest and just a hint of gassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp with a mostly light body and crisp carbonation. Refreshing and very drinkable. Good summer beer with light but satisfying flavors. I enjoyed it and it did exactly what I think it was trying to do.

piscator34 (2312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Draft. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Basic wet grain and mild herbal hop aromas. Cleanish grainy malt, earthy herbs and wet stones in the mouth. Light bodied with a moderate bitterness. Not all that "wheaty". Seems a bit bland and pointless.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2015
On tap at Brasa. Pours a near clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet wheat with a bit of honey and some light fruits. Flavor is similar with sweet wheat and honey up front and a touch of light fruit in the finish.

Obfuscate (465) - Minneapolis, - APR 16, 2015
I was expecting a hoppier twist on a wheat ale coming from Indeed but the smell is almost wet cardboard. Taste is better but still no pop, just a standard easy drinking wheat beer. There are less expensive, better options.

Can. Pours a hazy golden with a medium, fluffy, white head. Aroma is mild with honey and wheat. Flavor is wheat, light, grassy hops, honey, citrus notes, more fruit, and some spices. Light body with medium carbonation. Good quality for goes down fast.

Can. Golden with small white head. Aroma of citrus, pear, and a hint of honey. Light body with some bread notes, citrus, and some honey. An ok offering.

Tap at Psycho suzi. Plastic cup. Gold with good white head and decent lacing. Smells citrus and sweet. Honey and very slight hop resin elements. Nice finish. Clean and refreshing.
