Although few of us will ever achieve the official jersey, there is an athlete in all of us that thirsts to get out. Yellow Jersey Wheat is an American wheat style ale. We use 50% malted barley and 50% malted red hard winter wheat. It’s a light-bodied beer that is perfect for the hot Texas summers. It has a light hazy straw color with a light citrus character.

Hey we go, made for the texas heat .. . Poured out a hazy yellow, great head that died down quite a bit- some lacing left over .. . light banana skin, mushy wheat, and barley straight from the farm .. . it was to refreshing for me write anything else, its all gone .. . float like a butterfinger, stank like a bee. ..
