We’ve 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

On tap. Hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma is mellow, mostly wheat, with some light citrus. The flavor is similar, with some lemon, maybe lime on the finish. Bitter finish makes this a little less enjoyable. Light body.

Can. Pale hazy yellow gold with lasting head and lace. Light citrus and spice aroma. Medium-light toffee citrus bready sweetness with medium spicy citrus bitterness that lingers longer than necessary. Light soft body with a bite. Since "wheat ales" generally suck, I'll give this one some credit: not a drain pour.

Can from Finger Lakes Beverage Center. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid citrus on the nose. Lots of citrus on the tongue. Finished crisp and clean with just a touch of bitterness. Very quaffable!

On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This one pours a mild golden soft blurry looking body under a medium sized just off-white lacing head. Like the aroma, reminds me of the dry yeast t58?. It’s superbly fruity, lots of nice peachy sweetness, lemonade, it’s well hopped also. Also there’s citrus and citrus zest here. Grapefruit and it just oozes fresh. Nice! Really high in the carbonation this, not too aggressive but it almost grows in the mouth. More balanced in the taste. Hay and straw, I get oranges and clementine zest. Lots of lemon in the taste also. Good bitterness in this one. Really flavorful. 15.10.2015

16 ounce can. Pours a hazy straw gold color. Small creamy white head. Fragrant, lemony wheat malt nose has spicy hop notes. Tart, lemon-lime wheat malt flavor front. More juicy, spicy hops come through, though not overpowering. Finish is dry and reminiscent of Ritz crackers. Quite tasty.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Keg at World of Beer Wauwatosa, 9/13/16. Clear yellow, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of tropical fruit, lime, wheat. The taste is lime, wheat, tropical fruit. Thin.

A badass name and a badass can. That’s all Half Acre needed to get my attention. Still, I can never turn down the opportunity to have a great Wheat Ale. And this IS a great one. Cloudy yellow pour. Cracker-like malt. Lemony and grassy hop notes - dank. There’s a pretty big hop presence but very little bitterness. Rich, viscous feel. Dry finish with a lingering hint of sour funk. If only this were in my area...

KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2016
Can. Pale gold, cloudy. Lemony wheat nose, oranges, herbs. Fully, flakey, wheat biscuit flavor with nice oranges. Good.

thegreenrooster (4633) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pour is your typical looking wheat beer, cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is nice with a definite wheat malt but there is a nice Australian juicy hop in the background. Flavor is more of a pale ale or IPA with a nice fruity hop with just a little bitterness. Pretty good. At least they just didn’t make another boring wheat ale.

jc1762 (1652) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Can into a solo cup showing moderate to well filtered honey orange with a half a finger of quickly dissipating white foam. The nose shows light notes of juicy orange, guava, passionfruit, and The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of light banana with subtle citric orange and tangerine. Very light bitterness on finish. Moderate citric spiciness throughout and on the finish.

hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Sampled at RBSG 2016. In the tasting glass yellow with a white head. Nose of floral hops. Medium body. Flavor is lemon and wheat. Finishes with citras zest bitterness. Good.
