Bright old gold color. Hoppy, herbal aromas of buttered herb muffin and praline with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, engaging, medium-length banana-papaya custard and grapefruit marmalade finish. A fun hoppy wheat ale that is super crushable.

Wheat Ale

Beer Glass Lager Gold.jpg
Serve in a Flared Pilsner Glass
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.
