At the brewpub with Denny Ream. A German style hefeweizen made with Scottish golden promise malt and a portion of English oat malt.
A: The German wheat ale with English and Scottish malts is very light, a yellow (not pale) that is transparent with just a little bit of cloudiness. A thin, expansive head comes along but doesn't lace very much.
S: The nose is light, biscuity with a noticeable tartness thanks to the wheat. A very interesting combination of sweet and tart that I don't think that I've experienced before.
T: The soft biscuits have a creamy sweetness to them (not lactose, mind you), a mildness that makes me want another sip. As the biscuit moves to the back, the wheat addition becomes stronger, a contrasting tartness to the biscuit. Both flavors are mild. The tartness lingers, a lasting reminder of the wheat.
M: An intriguing beer, combining the pale UK malts with wheat and a touch of Germanic yeast. A lighter beer, you are better off starting with this one.
Serving type: on-tap
