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.

On draught at the Indeed Brewing Company’s taproom in Minneapolis, MN. pours a clear golden straw colored brew with an average sized off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma is almost absent. hints of golden grain malt, some light floral hops, white bread, and a touch of yeast. Taste is light bodied, more of the wheat malt present than in aroma with a short lived mild bitterness. Finish is light, a hint of pear, golden grain malt and some mild hops. one of the lightest wheat ales I’ve encountered.

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.

maekchu (2085) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Can from Zipp’s Liquors. Fruity nose, with light citrus, wheat, lemon, and the Sorachi pumps it up a bit. Light gold straw color. Mild sweet fruit (apples, pears), honey, and gentle wheat notes (which add a very light sour edge). Thin body. Nice stuff. Good aroma from the Sorachi. Wheat aspect is rather muted.

Good beer for the summer. Not my favorite style but it is good quality. Being served in cans, makes it easy to put a few down in a short amount of time.

16 oz. pour, on tap at Lago Tacos in Minneapolis. Consumed on 7-9-14. Pours a hazy yellow with a small amount of beige head. Looks like juice in the glass. “Beery,” fruity smell features a bit of a vomit scent. Definitely a subpar aroma. Orange and lemon in the aroma and flavor. The taste becomes increasingly dry upon multiple sips. Boring taste. Light, thin body. Frothy and soft in the palate. This is not up to par with most of Indeed’s other output. I’ve had the Mojito version of this beer previously, and it was utterly disgusting. This beer is not nearly as bad, but it is far from good. My honest unsolicited advice to Indeed is to discontinue this beer. There’s some segment of the population for which Shenanigans will be their first Indeed experience, and it will lead them to the incorrect conclusion that Indeed is a poor brewery.

Nsanders (490) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Can. Yellow with a thin white cap and spotty lacing. Smells like honey, grain, light lemon juice and bread. Taste is mildly sweet with a honey wheat bread flavor. Seems like a slightly better version of Leinies honey weiss with lemon built in.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of wheat and some light citrus. Taste follows aroma. Not too shabby.

Poured from a can into a tulip. My least favorite offering from Indeed. There isn’t enough going on with this beer for me to stay interested.

Got this on tap at Rathskeller in Duluth, MN. Pours a dark gold. Hopped with Sorachi Ace hops, but its distinctive flavor comes from the malted red wheat. A refreshing and light beer, but with malty and slightly sour undertones. Worth a taste.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellow-golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, biscuit, some grass, pine, spicy notes, touch of white fruits, hints of orange peel as well, some floral notes as well. Taste is floral, grassy, some earthy notes, nice white fruit and citrus, finishing with some biscuit and bready notes, finishing fairly dry, clean.
