COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German inspired wheat ale is packed full of citrus flavor. We use torrified wheat, pale, and carafoam for balance, giving it a nice hazy, straw color and refreshing wheat taste. We ferment the White Horse at higher ale temps with a German style yeast that is known for producing world class wheat beers. We let the yeast take over the majority of the flavoring in our fermenters, providing the beer with banana and clove like esters. We pull some of the yeast with it to give this brew the proper style and to keep its body and character. We than age this brew with zests of citrus and a brewers spice that blends harmoniously with the esters of the yeast and balance out the sweetness of this brew. Truly a favorite in the summer time for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Available April-September.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has a bit of the banana character that is characteristic of the style but has all most a salt raw and grassy quality. The taste is light, crisp, some banana, some sweetness, but remains refreshing. Enjoyed.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Sixtel donated to the MASHOUT 08 by Roy Pitz.. Pours a light coppery golden and a nice foamy head. Aroma is very zesty with citrus, ok clean hefe yeast, light phenolic, and mold fruity esters, grapefruit is nice addition to the clove phenols. Flavor is yeasty doughy wheat, lemon and grapefruit, phenolic light esters, smooth moderately sweet and thirst quenching- good summer beer.
