Clear dark copper color with a white head that leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma has hints of apple, caramel and hops. The taste crisp, clean and sweet with hints of apple, malt sweetness and a slight bitter finish. Great beer.

Pours an attractive copper color with nice clarity and a billowing head of lumpy froth on top. Aroma has the toasty, bready sweet character you'd expect from a Vienna with floral hops, a hint of lime, and dough. The Wakatu adds interesting flowery citrus notes to the flavor before heading back into fresh toasty sweet malt. Some pears and hoppy spice mixing with the cereal grains in the finish. Medium-light bodied and somewhat creamy. Really nice...I'm excited for the new direction of monthly beers from Foothills.

I like the fact that Foothills has switched to a new "hop series" for 2016,and like it even more that they are utilizing a hop that goes well in a Vienna lager....not something you hardly see if ever.Pours into a becker a brilliant bronze with a tight formed sticky off white head atop,a fantastic pour.Spicy hops are detected in the nose,also a bit leafy,some sweet pizza dough is there as well.Doughy and bready with a little graham cracker on the palate,with a drying slightly earthy and quite spicy hoppy finish.I think this is my first try of the Wakatu hops...it goes great with maltiness of the beer,fantastic!
