WheelSucker Wheat, a collaboratively brewed 7.2% mountainous hefeweizen from Avery and Ska.

Adam Avery and his brewers came down to Durango and brewed it up with the folks at Ska. A few weeks later Dave Thibodeau and Arlo from Ska went up to Boulder and then they all rode their bikes 426 miles from Avery to Ska, over a ridiculous number of mountain passes.

Dogbrick (11498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2010 Sample at the Avery tap room/brewery. This brew pours a cloudy lemonade color with a thin white head that burns away to a residual film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemons and wheat. Light, clean body with a citrusy character and flavors of wheat and banana, plus a touch of clove. The finish is wheaty with a fruity aftertaste. Decent collaboration brew overall.

AVERY "An ok hefe. Not sure why this needed to be a colab, or why it’s 7+% (you can’t tell). Average or slightly better than hefe, strong flavors...all the usual suspects. Scores high at Rb,"
