Hop and soft vegetal nose with a touch of honey. More hop presence than expected possibly brought out by the natural bitterness imparted by the asparagus.

Tasted on tap at brewpub. This wheat ale pours a medium gold color from tap. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruit, cereal and sweet. Medium bodied veggie/wheat beer. Malts are cereal and grainy. There is a touch of vegetable flavor here and is quite subtle. This really tastes like a decent wheat ale with a little more solid body and mouthfeel, without that grainy sharpness that is typical in a wheat. Nice carbonation. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Interesting beer. Perhaps a novelty, but it works. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

What can ya say about this beer? Itís made with asparagus. Okay, so that sounds a bit odd. Itís actually very clean, quite refreshing and little to no asparagus character to it at all. Aroma is lightly hopped, light cracker notes too. Appearance is a hazy light yellow color, white head. Flavor is light cracker, a little bitter and a clean finish. I can see this going down nicely while sitting in the hot sun at the Ass-pa-Ragus fest.

Clean light hop nose. No Asparagus nose unless u count the asparagus spear garnish sticking out of the glass and poking your nose. Hey what can I say its a good wheat beer with a very very slight hint of asparagas which is good cuz any more and it would wreck the beer. Good execution of a novelty beer.
