Originating in a home brew recipe from Moerlein’s Brewers Rian Umbach and Al Sheets, Altered Wheat is an aggressively hopped American Wheat. Powering this up is the excessive use of Centennial, Sorachi Ace, and Pacific Jade hops for a huge citrus character.

Draft sample. Poured an clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate citrus and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Draft at the Lager House. Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a barely off-white head that laces the glass heavily. Aroma of sugary sweet dough, wheat, peach, apricot, and grass. The flavor has the same sweet sugary dough thing going on, along with wheat, tropical fruits, grass, tea, and sweetener. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation. They’ve done better wheats.

Draft to pint at Moerlein Lager House. Looks solid; a fairly transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and wheaty with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Some fruit from the hops. A good example of the style.
