COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our anniversary this year, we made a beer to say thank you. Our take on the American Wheat Ale style, it features hop aromas and flavors reminiscent of cantaloupe, raspberries, peach, and lime, balanced with a subtle wheat bread background from the malts.

j12601 (14609) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus, musk, wheat on the nose. Medium bodied, soft sweetness, wheat, a bit of orange dances through some floral notes with wheat, and even some crisp citrus hoppiness. Very cool things going on here, bordering on that greenness that I don’t like, but it lurks in the back and mostly turns to mango and tropical fruit notes. Slow crisp bitterness, super easy drinking. Light, pretty, lovely.

500 ml bottle from the brewery. Unclear yellow put with a frothy white head and plenty of lacing. Fruity aroma mostly (peach, melon, kiwi, etc.) with some wheat and spice notes and a bit of cracker too. Flavor is fruity and hoppy, the wheat and spice come through on the close. Really nice beer. No complaints from me.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, ripe fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Citrusy, piney hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Good brew.

BuckeyeBoy (12114) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 24, 2016
500ml bottle pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is crazy reminds me of fruit loop cereal sweet grassy hops and a nice tropical kick. Taste is more of the sweetness rich juicy fruit and some grassy earth on the end.

4.5
malrubius (3502) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle from Meditrina. Very pale slightly hazy gold with lasting head and lace. Dank hop aroma with lemon and mint and wheat tang. Mild pineapple apricot grassy sweetness with light fresh fruit tang and very dry spicy finish. Light body and lively carbo. So refreshing and delicious in this heat. I was worried because I usually hate "wheat ale" but this is wheat ale that tastes like very dry tropical IPA. FUCKING NAILED IT!

Bottled 6/26/16, drunk 7/9/16.
A light cloudiness shows throughout this flaxen-gold beer. White head is medium-sized, rocky and fairly persistent.
Very dry, wheat-tinged biscuit and cracker malts are joined by the house yeast character (earth, ash, light pepper perhaps) while lemony hops perk up. Some soft marmalade character is added, with a touch of grapefruit pith and minimal pine. Patience is rewarded with softer, lightly juicy citrus emerging with warming, as well as a touch of honey-tinged vanilla-like maltiness. No flaw or alcohol.
Buttery up front, it’s at least a dry diacetyl character and becomes more popcorn-like and less savory butter-like. The palate mostly accustoms to it and the delicate hops add citrus and moderate bitterness to overcome. Tight carbonation, dry and with a slick-to-wheaty texture overall. Could use a bit more softness and juiciness, but I guess that’s not what they’re going for here. Oh ya, and lose the diacetyl....
