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.

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.
