Clear dusty old gold color. Bright, fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of banana bread pudding and waxy apple and pear with an even, bright, finely carbonated, off-dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of delicately spiced praline, honeyed sprouts, and citrus finish. A delicious and beautifully balanced wheat ale that is a pleasure to drink.

Wheat Ale

Wheat ales are light straw to gold in color and range in alcohol from 4-6%. These beers may be filtered or unfiltered resulting in a hazy hue. These beers can vary in flavor and aroma with some versions of the style being more hop forward and others closer to the classic German weizen hefe style. This generic category encapsulates the diverse interpretation of the classic German weizen styles brewed in America and elsewhere. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Coastal Wheat, Firestone Walker Solace and Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin.
