COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3.2% ABV, 1.006 FG, 3.5 SRM, local Sonoran white wheat from Hayden Mills.

This ain’t your Grandaddy’s wheat ale! We embrace the crazy things that some other breweries will not speak of. All the "bugs and critters", as we say, go bonkers in the mash tun creating a sour mash. Similar to making yogurt and sauerkraut, a controlled temperature allows lactic acid creating bacteria to create a souring effect. We boil to politely "remove" the little guys. Refreshing, delightful, tangy, and just plain wonderful! (It’s OK to not like this one, at least you tried it!) Oh, and locally grown (Sossman Farms) Sonoran White Wheat is at the heart of this beer. Drink Local!

Food paring: Bavarian pretzel sticks.

Draft at the brewpub in Gilbert, Arizona. The pour is cloudy yellow, with a well formed ½ inch white head. The aroma is tart citrus lemon along with fresh cereal bread malt. The taste is the tart lemon of the nose, and also picks up a nice general fruit flavor, grain notes and finishes almost on the sour side of tartness. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation and a dry tart finish. Solid.
