COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Greenmarket Wheat is a celebration of New York State agriculture, uniting local ingredients to create a beer with a mission.

We work with GrowNYC’s Greenmarket to source grain for the brew - they connected us to North Country Farms in Watertown, NY to provide 70% of the grain used in our mash. The hops are grown on a family farm outside of Syracuse owned by our own Technical Director Mary Wiles, who grew up there.

Our brewers take raw wheat, malted barley, Mary’s hops, and Bavarian yeast and unite them into an unfiltered beer with light fruit flavors and a zesty palate. It’s great with foods from fresh salads to grilled meats. Proceeds from the beer sales support GrowNYC’s mission to revive New York’s grain industry and provide support to family farms, farmers markets, community gardens and other agricultural projects. It’s a New York beer, from New York farms, and now it’s all yours.

Jow (4087) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle at home while watching World Series. Pale watery looking dirty blonde. Nose is wheat and light fruits. Tastes of wheat, yeast, banana, cloves and sand. Watery but still zippy.

MetalNHopHead (2191) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Brooklyn’s wheat beer is a grainy, traditional brew. It doesn’t do anything to make it stand out, but it’s a great example of the style and its characteristics. Yeasty and lightly spicy aromatics. Flavor is somewhat grassy with touches of black pepper and a mild fruitiness. Dry, creamy mouthfeel and a barely-perceptible tartness. The subtle use of honey speaks to the old world brewing mentality: if you can detect it, it’s not a good addition. It was a chilly rainy day at Brooklyn brewery, but Greenmarket Wheat offered a glimpse at a hot, sunny day.

lordofpotplants (5) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 29, 2016 does not count
Weat beer but not a weiss. Fresh light taste. Clear beer. Subtle undertones. Interesting drink

3.3
ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Nose big clove and bubblegum, wheat, much less lemon and banana, light rubber. Pours hazy dull golden with a short white head. Very crisp full body, not fat, wheat heavy with more banana and lemon, smooth grain, tart and zesty spritziness, little orange peel, the great effervescence utterly covers over the mild stale rubber, resulting effect very refreshing. [2016.04.16: 3.3]

nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2016
Tap at R+B. Hazy orange-tan body. Light banana tones, but also some US wheat flavor. Medium bodied, OK for the style I guess, which I thought was a boring US Wheat German Hefe hybrid.

3.5
kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is quite estery with some nice banana and yeasty notes, delicate wheat base. The flavor is fairly light, some fruity banana notes, delicate yeastiness, soft wheat. Rather short finish. Light bodied and very easy drinking, soft fizzy carbonation. This has some Hefeweizen character, but without the heavy yeastiness. Enjoyable beer.

3.5
chinchill (5318) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Some sediment left on the bottom of the bottle after a full pour. Hits the nostrils with yeast, clove and fainter bread and banana. Flavor: largely follows the nose. Good balance for style with none of the elements overly dominant . Overall: excellent for style, even by German standards.

3.4
Gachupines (1252) - USA - DEC 3, 2015
Cloudy yellow with little to no head. Aroma is light hay. Flavor is light wheat with a mild finish. Very mild banana.
