An American Wheat beer should always be easy drinking and refreshing, which is why we off this straw-coloured, light bodied beer as our warm weather brew. Well-balanced with a pleasant wheat aroma, a mild citrus hoppy finish and the haze typical of wheat beers, it can be served cold with a lemon wedge (or grapefruit twist for the adventurous). The backbone malt is slightly greater than 50% wheat with the balance being 2-row pale ale malt and a small measure of pilsen malt. Locally soured honey is added to sweeten the deal and Pacific Northwest hops balance out the palate.

Hazy golden pour, small white head. Upfront malted wheat aroma, with some very very subtle citrus. Watery mouth feel, solid carb. The finish is crisp, and clean, with very light bitterness. The citrus fades and isnt present in the finish, just some more wheat flavours.

Cloudy and nice white head. Aroma of wheat and grains. I do get a touch of sweetness, maybe from the honey.

650 mL bottle. Pours hazy straw with a slight reddish orange tint. Simple crisp wheat on the nose, with mild straw grains and a light note of berry and citrus. A trace of spicy yeast. Dry and light bodied with a slightly bitter finish. quite clean with full carbonation and very little in the way of finish. Would make a nice summer quencher, but nothing ground breaking.

Draft - Sweet wheat with some raw grain. Cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Light wheat and a touch of bitterness. Not sweet at all, which is nice.
