Brewed in honor of the A2 Beer Wench, our very own, E.T. Crowe, as well as the easy-going and laid back personality of Ann Arbor’s Old West Side, this American Wheat Ale is made up of 50% rich, plump, juicy German wheat malt, with the remaining malt bill filled with nearly 50 pounds of locally grown raw wheat grains. A touch of caramel malt to lend character and color as well as a heavy dose of Cascade hops from the American Northwest give this beer a completely unique quality. A combination of herbaciousness (or, if you’re a Brit: "Herbaceousness") and citrus notes, this is a truly amazing beer drinking experience available ONLY on Ann Arbor’s Westside!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light wheat, caramel, and lager yeast. It’s a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze. It has a small off-white head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a very thin ring. The flavor starts with light caramel and light fruit. The finish has light wheat and a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Tap at the brewery. Hazy gold pour with a small ring of head. Aroma is faint. Just some light wheat grain. Taste is the same. Weak and boring. Light to moderate bitterness in the finish.
