BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peak Organic Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: American Dark Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Brad’s farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal.

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - clear amber color with a off-white head that thinned to a light layer leaving some trails of lacing.

S - butterscotch with some citrus in the background.

T - citrus bite upfront with the butterscotch flavor coming in midway before citrus bitterness finishes things off.

F - light/medium bodied with a refreshing feel.

O - a pretty good beer at a reasonable price.

Peak Organic, like Diamond Knot, hop forward dark ale, nothing winter about it other than being dark, would drink year round

We did a large christmas and winter beer tasting panel and this was one of the many that we tried. Most of the beers we tried we solid including this one that the panel liked.

A: Deep copper ale with frothy off white head that fades slowly. light lacing on the glass.

S: Balanced aroma of citrusy hops, toasted wheat and some carmel sweetness.

T: Bready malt upfront with blasts of tangy wheat. Light carmel sweetness any nutty notes leads to nice hoppy finishes with hints of lemon zest.

M: Light to medium body, crisply carbonated.

D: This beer was a pleasant suprise. I'm not sure if its fully representative of the style, but still an interesting and tasty brew. I will definitely grab this one again.
