This is actually called Meatball Ale. It's a red ale brewed with 30% wheat malt, per an email confirmation. On-tap at Victoria Gastro Pub during Baltimore Beer Week.

A - The body was a cloudy, dull red...two fingers worth of white head sat on top...it never fully went away...nice lacing

S - A surprising citrus hop presence...mingled well with the strong wheat malt bill

T - The wheat takes over a lot of the flavors...it presents itself as light on the palate but it's full in flavor...a slight chalky flavor comes across...the hops are trying to come through towards the end...they do add some sweetness along with a touch of caramel

M - Medium bodied...smooth, slightly sweet but the wheat comes back to take over

O - I was intrigued by this beer...I figured the wheat would add just a little flavor and more body...it actually added the body but also dominated in the flavor more than I would have liked...an interesting beer that I'm glad I got to try

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from growler into a sixpoint plastic cup at a sixpoint event.

Pours a redish brown with a small off white head, smells amazing huge rye presence with a good amount of hops. Great signature hoppy taste with some malted rye in there and a slightly wheaty backbone. Absolutly amazing beer.
Overall I'm not a wheat person but this is pretty awesome.

Talking to the rep he told me that it is brewed year round for a meatball shop and that is pretty much the only place to get it.
