Served at the Sam Adams brewery in Boston.
A: Poured a pale golden yellow with a bit of a hazy chill and a thin head of pure white foam.
S: Smells of lemon zest and grainy wheat. There's less of an aroma here than what I've had out of the bottle.
T: Taste is malty and sweet with a definitive lemon zing and a pale wheat finish.
M: Mouthfeel is light-to medium bodied with a clean refreshing citrus zest.
D: The manageable ABV, smooth body and good flavor make this a sessionable beer, but is geared more towards the summer months.
This batch was a test batch and reportedly first of the season at Sam, so it wasn;t quite the same as stores will get in the spring. This is a great summer beer to have, as it's sweet, crisp and light, while offering a complexity that other American Pale Wheats of summer can't compare to. It's definitely got a time and a place.
Serving type: on-tap
