Brilliant yellow color. Aromas and flavors of whipped creme, alpine herbs, sliced banana, and cream of wheat with a velvety, bright, finely carbonated, fruity light body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length finish conveying suggestions of sourdough loaf finish. Fresh, vibrant aromas and pillowy texture; a wheat ale with lots to offer.

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.
