Brew Bus Brewing "Are Wheat There Yet?"
12 oz. can

I wasn't impressed with this beer, but neither was I unimpressed. It's a basic American wheat ale that does the job. It's delicately wheaty and lightly honey-ish in the malt with a hop accent that leans citrusy/lemony and subtly piney/minty. There's a decent amount of bitterness to it that keeps it balanced as well. It's looks like you'd expect, and it's easy to drink as you'd expect. Refreshing. If I was headed to the beach I might grab a six-pack of this.

When a new CAN shows up in LanCANster, PA and I do not have trade for it or travel to score one for The CANQuest (TM), I CAN hardly believe the luck! Such was the case recently when The Fridge got some of these in stock. CAN you dig it?

From the CAN: "Hop on for the ultimate craft beer experience on the Brew Bus! From brewery tours and tastings to sporting events and bachelor parties, the Brew Bus offers a once in a lifetime experience for everyone. Our tour guides are experienced and knowledgeable, and our staff is friendly and accommodating. Hop on today!!"; "Are Wheat There Yet? is a refreshing Ameri[CAN] Wheat Ale brewed with Galaxy hops from New Zealand to lend citrus & tropical flavors and aromas."

I was refreshed by the Crack! and thus began an inverted Glug. The two fingers of tawny head popped and fizzed themselves right out of existence. Color was a cloudy orangish-yellow (SRM = ~ 5) and I found myself shaking my head in disbelief at the poor showing of the previous beer, which was a hefeweizen. This was more like it, even though it was simply a Wheat beer. Nose was absolutely tropical - mango, papaya, pineapple. Pardon me while I don my grass skirt and coconut shell bra. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium and the taste reminded me of guava juice! Holy tropical, Batman! I have not thought of guava in years, but there was an early health food store in the mall that used to sell it in concentrate. This was really hitting the spot! Are wheat there yet? I do not care to arrive as that would mean that I am finished. Finish was semi-sweet with the tropical flavors making like a roll of Life Savers, but tempered with the wheat. Much better than any Hefeweizen and a real CANdidate for the cooler when hitting the beach, IMHO.

Appearance- color is a hazy straw, pours two fingers of frothy, foamy, white head that quickly settles down to about a quarter of the poured amount but the half- finger that remains retains very well.

Smell- the aroma is quite mild, it consists of grapefruit, oranges, lemon, and a hint of wheat.

Taste- taste is bursting with citrus. lots of grapefruit and blood orange, the wheat balances the citrus flavor for an overall mild taste experience.

mouthfeel- slightly creamy, light carbonation, very juicy.

overall- definitely one of the more unique wheat beers i've tried, in a good way.

American wheat ale is not my preferred style, and I am finally coming off a lingering cold so with that being said....

Different, but not in a bad way. First things first - ginormous carbonation. Gave it several seconds and after a slow pour was treated to pillowy head and a lacing reminiscent of a good DIPA. Nose was unfair to judge, my sinuses not as clear as I'd prefer for an honest review. Taste was a very snappy pepper, lemony citrus. I'd seen the previous references to guava and other tropical fruit, which would be right up Cigar City's wheelhouse, but again, my senses are a bit off and maybe I'm just missing it.

All in all, wouldn't be really fair to judge this against my personal favorite American wheat - Bell's Oberon - but I'm not gonna be harsh because it's different (Dogfish Head does everything different and we hail them for it). As that Grizzly Adams/Brawny guy in those funny Dr Pepper commercials says - Bold Flavor! With that, I say success and kudos to CC for yet another winner.
