Beer added by: robwestcott on 05-19-2013

We celebrated Bloomington Bikes Month and Bike-to-the-Brewpub Month in May with a very special beer release: 10-Speed Hoppy Wheat.

Slightly hazy and golden-hued, 10-Speed packs piney aromas, subtle tropical fruit nuances and a nice crisp finish. This American-style wheat offers a nice hop punch yet is still light and refreshing enough for a warm summer day. Enjoy it at the Bloomington Brewpub today.

Woody, Resin, Bread, Spice

More of a “I could knock a few of these back.” wheat ale rather than a massive hop bomb that numbs your tastes buds in bitterness. 27 IBU’s from only Mosaic hops, yes this is a single hopped brew. Suggestions of pineapple skin, cedar, fresh cut grass, and nutty wheat. Hint of biscuity toasted malt within but the hop flavor leaves a soft blanket of dominance on the palate.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with thin wispy head of off white suds. Touch of lace in generic pint glass at local Beef O’Brady’s.

Nose: Tropical fruits and citrus hops. Delicious already, and outstanding already!

Taste: Wonderfully tropical. Not too bitter at all but with a heavy-duty hopped up presence. Nice body, plenty of flavor, wonderful beer! Would pick this one up if I could find it bottled!

I had this beer at the Brewpub and it is fantastic. One of the best Spring/Summer/Fall beers I have ever had. I wish it was available all year. It tastes like pineapple, tropical fruit, pine resin, peach skin, grapefruit and nectarines

Loads of pine, mango, grapefruit, and peach. This is the most refreshing and juiciest hoppy wheat beer I've had. I also think it's by far BBC's best beer. If only I lived closer to Bloomington. I'd drink this all the time. I do hope they start packaging this in 6 packs or 4 pack tallboys though.

On tap at the Tap in Bloomington IN

A: Hazy gold with about a finger of buttermilk colored head and excellent lacing retention.

S: Lightly hopped smell with a good balance of malts. Some citrus bite in smell - like lemon peel.

T: floral hops lead with a malty breadlines at the rear - a citrus zing is notable throughout

M: a little heavy on the tongue and fairly heavily carbonated.

Overall a very good brew from a company I've never heard of.

One of the first hoppy wheats I ever tried. Still in love with it to this day.

Cloudy, golden color.

Wheaty, fruity smell.

Well-balanced taste--sweet wheat nicely tempered by the hops, which are fruity.

Medium-bodied, good head retention.

Overall a great beer, one of my favorites in Southern Indiana.
