American Dark Wheat Ale |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Brad’s farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal.

Pours a reddish brown, with a small white head. The nose starts with a nice presence of pine, light citrus, and subtle caramel. There are hints of pineapple, but they’re incredibly subtle. On the palate the body is medium to light, and heavily carbonated. The hoppy elements like pine, grass, and grapefruit take the forefront over subtle brown sugar and caramel flavors with just a hint of bread. The flavors are very straightforward, and there’s an undercurrent of flavor similar to a wheat beer. On the ending, there’s a brighter fruit note like a stone fruit or a pineapple that just winks in before defaulting back to citrus pine and pumpernickel bread. The finish is definitely hoppy.

Light brown/deep dark amber color. Clear. Small head, but it sticks around leaving a pleasant blanket of lace.

There's a funky, bark-like smell. Interesting and a bit wild. Smells like there's a lot of rye in this beer.

Strong toast, bordering on being burnt, is my first impression. The swallow features a solid bittering hop. This is enhanced by the dryness of the beer. A bit thin but the bubbles are also muted, so it works.
