The Dark Wheat Project- a joint group effort. We invited 20 craft beer lovers to brew with us for a cause: the American Lung Association’s Trek Across Maine. Our guest brewers helped us carefully blend several varieties of dark specialty wheat malts with barley. At 7.5% Alc. by Vol., this black creation is an uncommon version of the traditional wheat beer. Thank you to our generous guest brewers for their labor and enthusiasm to make Dark Wheat Project and the Trek a success.

This has a vibrant brown pour with about two inches of fluffy, foamy, tan head and nice clinging lacing. The aroma is full of wheat, malts, and maybe molasses. The body is of smooth, fairly full texture and the long lasting head tickles the upper lip. The taste has a bold wheat and malty start with a bitter hoppiness that sneaks up on the second or third sip. A very nice beer.

Draught @ Sebago Brewing Company, Portland, ME: Came as a ruby black pour, a big tan head up top. Inviting aroma of caramel, raisins, and wet wheat. Rich to drink with lots of black cherry, boozy and bitter but no real hop character. Where’s the weiss? This really tastes strongly of the dark and less of the wheat. Perhaps lesser marks for the style, but I have to say it’s an enjoyable beer by itself. Good work.

Another home run by Sebago. Pours thin and black with no head. Aroma is rich malts, soft wheat, sweetness, dark fruits. Drinks with fuller body then it appears but isnt cloying. Taste is extremely smooth and sweet balanced with a bit of bitter from the deep roast malts and a very nice fresh fruity body. finishes with sweetness and no alcohol to be noticed. I’m buying more if I can find it.
