COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weve been making fun of wheat beers for a long time. Low hanging fruit, I guess, but we brewed one. Our packaging team was riding the topic pretty hard. They wanted to see an american wheat brewed with australian hops. And since they work their fingers to the nub and are a pretty rad group of chaps, we took the bait and slammed this brew in the tanks.

A ridable 5.5% abv will host some wheatey nuts & juicy Motueka hop bolts. The deliverer of this truth: Akari Shogun, He who harnesses light will usher this summer force into your life.

Akari Shogun American Wheat, coming to you soon, friends

Can on the RBSG. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is floral and wheat. Light body, wheat, lemon zest, fruity finish, very good.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Honey golden with a fluffy white head. Lots of white solids came with the final pour. Wheat crispness and tropical fruit define the aroma. Bitterness is not real big but it is biting and dry. Lots of tropical fruit along with that bitterness. Pine is tasted with tangerine. Grapefruit comes with warming. It works out to be a hoppy wheat ale. This is a pleasant summertime beer and the moderate ABV is appreciated.

Pours lightly hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with tangerine, wheat, tangerine and light pine. It has a lighter body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has drier malt, woodiness, citrus and pine. Very nice and super easy drinking.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Tastes wheat, hoppy, summery. I thought this was good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dagimp (970) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2016
from a tallboy into a wheat beer glass. Pours a murky hazy orange. Nice hop and fruity ester aroma. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Taste is very mild hop fruit with bubblegum, but its all so subdued. REally not a big fan of the American Wheat ale, aka wheat ale with hops and this didnt do much for me at all.

Crap I wrote up an epic, world changing review for this and then my browser froze. Lost forever. Humanity has lost something great. Let me sum it up briefly: 1) spoiled tonights Game of Thrones, saying Jon Snow lives and he in turn spoiled religion by saying theres no God (sorry Ted Cruz), 2) admitted my alcoholism and cursed out Siri for autocorrecting the totally legit word alcoholing to alcoholism, 3) apologized for ticking wheat ales in San Diego instead of joining my wife and baby for their first legit Mothers day, then tried to justify it by referencing Lonely Island - Im a motherlover youre a motherlover we should f each others mothers, Im pushing that lady where you came out as a baby aint no doubt that shit is crazy - ok Ill stop here, 4) raved over ticking a world class wheat ale. SOOOOO here we are with a wheat ale. Clear bright golden color, sweaty glass, with a lacy whIte head. The aroma is what youd hope for, wheaty, honey, floral notes. The flavor is mildly sweet, very balanced, wheaty, honey, light hops. Can you believe this is a good wheat ale and its not hopped to hell or like 13% or sour or something? World getting Cray. Cant believe this beer isnt rekking my taste buds or sobriety (LOL JK LONG GONE) in a non-subtle and balanced way. Medium light bodied, well carbonated, clean and crisp. Nice for what it is!
