I got in an unexpected visit at Country Garden 6-Pack yesterday on the way home from DC and when I saw this available as a single, I could not resist the odd bottle.

From the bottle: “Colorado Mountain Town Craft Beer”; “American Unfiltered Wheat with a Hint of Lemony-Citrus”; “Ale Fermented with Lemon Grass”; “Tommyknockers slipped into the moning camps of Idaho Springs in the 1800’s with the discovery of gold in our mountains and streams. These mischievous elves, though hardly ever seen, were often heard singing and working. They guided many fortunate miners from harm’s way and to the gold they sought.”

These wheat-based beers do not produce much in the way of lasting head. I initially had two fingers of fizzing, bone-white head before it simply fell to wisps. Color was a very cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5) and I will readily cop to agitating it to get the lees back into suspension. Nose had a very pleasant lemoniness to it and my mouth began to water at the thought. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. Taste had an immediate tartness on the tongue that slowly revealed itself as its inherent lemony flavor. Finish was dry and even slightly puckering with a lingering lip-smacking quality. Another perfect Summer beer that I wonder how it would fly during other times of the year.
