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

italianjohn (2999) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2016
Clear golden pour with a small white head and very light sticky lacing .... Aroma of floral, grassy and citrusy hops with stone fruit and wheat .... Taste is of floral hops, grassy with a rindy citrus flavor and wheat .... Dry and bitter finish with a lingering floral and rindy flavor .... Thin and decent for a wheat beer

TimE (5451) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 15, 2016
Hazy golden color. Super light fruity but lacking hoppiness. Light body, dry super drinkable but the end is a bit too much two road grain. Decent but nothing uber amazing.

This brew is totally out of character for me but Im trying to rate it fairly. It is a beautiful pour...bright clear yellow...aroma is average. The taste is good for what it is but the strong bitter is what disagrees with me. Though bitter the bitter does not linger so I did manage to drink the entire can which I must say has can art suitable for framing! Though not my kind of brew I wouldnt turn one down of offered again.

Aroma is lovely - bright, clean, citrusy, and a bit of hops. Pours a light pale yellow with a minimal head. Taste is unlike any other wheat beer Ive had - slightly sweet with a hoppy presence, but still very light. Has a bread and citrus aftertaste. This is a really well made hop forward wheat.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a very hazy, bright golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with streaks of soapy lacing. Subtle floral hop presnce in the aroma with bready yeast, citrus fruit sweetness and zesty spice. Delicate grassy notes with faint resins but the hop presence isnt as strong as I expected. Some peppery spice with clove and coriander along with a strong bread/yeast character followed by orange pure and zesty citrus peel. Somewhat bland. Full body with a crisp hop bite that provides dry, earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and wheat beer characteristics into a slightly tart, dry finish. Usually dont like this style but hops are nicely integrated with grassy pine resins countered by sourdough bread, faint peppery spice, banana and citrus rind. As it warms, the spice elements come forward a bit more complimenting the earthy hops. Really well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink. Great beer for warm weather.

aleigator (907) - GERMANY - OCT 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazed, bright golden color, with a froth, stable two finger broad head. Combines a rich hay impression beautifully with juicy, exotic fruits. A pleasant grassy quality ties both aroma directions together, creating a unique, very promising nose. While the hops certainly are more than just a gimmick, this is still far away from becoming an IPA, as the orangy hops illustrate the beers wheat quality, without overwhelming it in any way. Drinks very creamy, with a lively carbonation splash during the finish, showcasing an utmost refreshing, flavorful, easy drinking beer. Tastes of dough bread, joined by lime defined hops, mellowed by a gentle aqueous quality, which stays noteable till the very end. The hops evolve to a more prominent level, providing a nice bitter bite, while the soft wheat profile remains visible. Finishes with even more grass coated lemon, white bread and a soft aqueous note. Very soft and easy drinking with an enjoyable hoppy peak, while not denying its wheat origin, showcased by a smoothing aqueous quality, ensuring that the beer remains easy drinkable.
