Cloudy dusty peach-orange color. Aromas of juicy tangerine, ripe peach, mango yogurt, and ripe strawberry with a round, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, appealing, medium-length allspice, strawberry shortcake, flamed orange peel, fruit salad, and jicama finish. A zesty flavored Belgian-style wheat beer with a great sense of juiciness and grown-up fruit flavors.

Flavored Wheat Beer

Beer Glass Lager Gold.jpg
Serve in a Flared Pilsner Glass
Flavored wheat ales are usually pale straw to gold in color and average between 4-6.5% in alcohol with variations depending on the interpretation of the style. They commonly derive their flavor from fruit and honey added during the brewing process in addition to the standard malt, hops, yeast and water. Flavored wheat ales are an increasingly popular seasonal style covering a number of flavors adopted by brewers worldwide, particularly in the US. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Blackberry Wit, Unibroue Ephemere Apple and Breckenridge Agave Wheat.
