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.

A - Pours a extremely pale yellow with a monstrous head that hands on for dear life. Nice chunks of unfiltered somethings floating near the bottom

S - Slightly yeasty aroma with hints of lemon and perhaps other citrus. Also has a very very slight peppery spiciness to it

T - Slight bitterness up font followed by lemon and yeast. Again very slightly peppery on the finish

M - pretty thin mouthfeel. Very slick. Refreshing in the mouth and dry on the finish

O - Nice summer wheat beer. Very drinkable but with more kick than most wheats. Not something I would crave all the time but can see myself picking it up from time to time.
