Ophelia – American Wheat (5%) - Breckenridge Brewery (Colorado)
App: Pours a very hazy true gold, practically opaque, with very little light passing through. Hazier than a lot of other american wheats. No head to speak of, what head it does throw settles to a filmy white sheen over the top. Some lacing.
Smell: Nose is hoppy with pine and herb hops notes dominating. Slight lemon notes from the wheat. Wheat graininess comes through slightly. Smells cheesy, and honestly a little off.
Taste: Foretaste is slightly sour, with some pleasant cereal wheatiness on the true taste. Hops go from normal to pronounced as the beer sits on the palate, and further sips are taken. Primarily citrus and pine, with some deeper herb like flavors. Not complicated or engaging really, just sort of routinely bitter. Pretty well balanced, but sort of unremarkable. Slight lingering bitterness and wheat flavors in the in aftertaste.
Mouth: Carbonation remains high after continued agitation. Body is solidly medium, but a little disappointing.
Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Tulip. 2/7/14.
