Notes/Commercial Description:
We originally brewed Halcyon as our first summer seasonal, but since all the Halcyon fans (a.k.a: kiteheads) asked so nicely, we now brew this magical brew year around. Besides, who doesn't want a little taste of summer on a dark winter night?

We are proud of all our beers, but Halcyon is special. We are in “the wheat state” after all, so the pressure was on us to make a wheat beer, but we knew it had to be great. Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat is the result of that Midwestern angst, an all-American wheat with real Kansas-grown grain in the brew.

We start with raw Kansas white wheat in the mix to give it a nice edge, but what really makes it shine is the hops. We use “hop-bursting” late in the brewing process and this gives Halcyon its palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste like the best days of summer.

Pours a light gold with a nice carbonated head. Hay, wheat and grain predominate the nose. There's nothing subtle about the taste of wheat on the tongue. Very bready also, with a bit of lemony citrus. Medium mouth that seems to me a bit chewy, but that may be from all the wheat this beer implants upon the brain. This is an unexpectedly nice beer.

Poured from a pint can into a pint glass.
Cloudy, golden color. Significant head.
Smells of wheat and citrus.
Much more citrus than other wheat beers I've tried. Tastes very refreshing.
Wheat, citrus, and a bit of hops. Very balanced.
I like it. Would have again.
