Zythos hops! The Irish believe there is a time of the year, halfway between the spring solstice and summer equinox, when fires are lit on the hills to ward off evil influences for the coming year and ensure prosperity. Lá Bealtaine, the festival of White Fire, celebrates the defeat of winter’s adversities and the anticipation of summer’s bounty. Lá Bealtaine is a hoppy American wheat ale, light-colored with generous pine and citrusy American hops.

This one poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of fresh citric hops, pale wheat. Flavor similar, pretty fresh, one of the better white ipas over had.

On tap, pours a hazy amber similar to the color of a Blue Moon. Citrus is most apparent in the aroma with the underlying dry hops. I enjoyed this with a large pretzel and found it pretty refreshing despite its lower carbonation. Body is medium light and what you would expect from a wheat beer. Has a dry and mildly bitter finish.

12 oz. bottle. Very nice! Floral hops, bit of citrus. Who are these guys? I will be watching out for the Lavery Brewing Company.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/2/13

Aroma: The nose is hoppy and a little wheaty, grass, citrus, wheat, and spice
Appearance: Pours a gold color with a very large frothy head and average lace
Flavor: The flavor is wheat, spice, and hops, solidly balanced
Palate: The body is light-medium, nice spice feel, plus carbonation
Overall Impression: This one is not bad at all. It is a pretty tasty beer and it is certainly worth trying. I liked it.

On tap. Pours a cloudy dirty orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, light fruits, grass, orange peel. Flavor of citrus, orange, bready malt. Light, citrusy, palatable. Light bitter hops. An unusual wheat ale with a heavy focus on the citrus but it’s pretty good. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured hazy gold with thin white head. Subtle sweet, grassy nose. Flavor is also grassy with floral tones and light citrus notes. Thin and slightly yeasty. Probably about as good as a wheat ale could taste.

Bomber from Frank Smith’s. Pours turbid dark straw orangy with 1-finger frothy white clingy head. Nose is piney citric hops, coriandery spice, orange zest. Tastes very tangeriney, hoppy, with spicy coriander notes, some florals, mild yeasty funk, and some white peppery hints. Comes off like a witbier/hoppy IPA hybrid with a dash of bier de garde.
