Created by our brewer Kurt Mayes, O-Gii is a collaboration with Milwaukee’s own Rishi Tea, infusing Asian character to this monster wheat beer. The name is our nod to the brewing abbreviation OG, which defines the potential for alcohol level prior to fermentation.

16 oz. can poured to a sampler glass at the 2015 Lakeshore Beverage Trade Show in Chicago, displaying a clear, golden hue, with a presentable layer of white head foam that reduced to a persistent ring & light film, and clingy spots of lacing. The nose was rather subtle, but was fairly successful in presenting some soft wheat, earthiness, a balanced array of spices as coriander, chamomile, & ginger, and a touch of orange peel-like fruitiness. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes, sweet, some noticeable alcohol presence, and a clean finish.

From a tallboy poured in a shaker at Geek Bar Beta. Great full-bodied fairly herbal wit. Very lightly hopped appropriate for the style. Instead the herbal tea flavors provide the backbone for this wit. Hides ABV very well. Impressive beer.

Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Citrusy to the nose. Starts out sweet and then a touch of bitterness on the swallow. Can taste the subtle tea flavor. Nice wheat beer with a tea twist. Would be a good summer beer.

[Can] Dirty golden pour with a large amount of white head on top. Herbal nose features black tea, yeasty spice and floral notes. Notes of yeast, green tea leaves, dough, herbal spices and some citrus peel in the taste. An odd mix of flavors. Warming sensation from the alcohol. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

Served from a can. Aroma is a little medicinal, in a good way. I imagine it’s from the tea. White fluffy head with golden hue Taste is a little fruity with notes of strong alcohol present. Different but good. This beer is excellent on tap at the MKE Ale House.

Poured from a 16 ounce can, thanks to my sister. The aroma is tropical fruits, soft wheaty tartness. The wheat is more noticeable in the flavor. There is a big tropical fruit note as well. This is a high alcohol tasty beer.

Wow. Lemon soufflé urinal cake nose. Interesting. Bread dough, light egg funk, reminiscent of a gueze, and lemon fo sho. Smells a little rotten. Light and zesty with average carb. Taste has a little diacetyl tone. Lemon soufflé and egg funk. Very metallic and buttery. Diacetyl lemon dough. Fail. 2.1
