Notes / Commercial Description:
We celebrated Bloomington Bikes Month and Bike-to-the-Brewpub Month in May with a very special beer release: 10-Speed Hoppy Wheat.

Slightly hazy and golden-hued, 10-Speed packs piney aromas, subtle tropical fruit nuances and a nice crisp finish. This American-style wheat offers a nice hop punch yet is still light and refreshing enough for a warm summer day. Enjoy it at the Bloomington Brewpub today.

34 IBU

First had poured from pint can into Weizen glass. This "Hoppy Wheat" drinks more like a slightly hopped-up Czech Pilsener than an American Pale Wheat Ale.

This is just a really interesting beer. Idiosyncratic. Lighter than I usually drink, but not bad at all. There's room for this in the world, for sure.

Nice golden amber color, pale head, not persistent.

Not much aroma. A bit chemical. Hints of apricots.

Taste is bitttter. Good though. Unmitigated by any malty sweetness whatsover.

Light to moderate mouthfeel, a bit more carbonation than I prefer.

Finish is long, bitter, subtle.

Good.

Great beer. Surprising hop taste with only 27 ABU

Woody, Resin, Bread, Spice

More of a “I could knock a few of these back.” wheat ale rather than a massive hop bomb that numbs your tastes buds in bitterness. 27 IBU’s from only Mosaic hops, yes this is a single hopped brew. Suggestions of pineapple skin, cedar, fresh cut grass, and nutty wheat. Hint of biscuity toasted malt within but the hop flavor leaves a soft blanket of dominance on the palate.

Aroma is pine, light citrus and a hint of wheat. The flavor is grapefruit, hop resin, wheat, citrus, fruit and a bitter/tangy finish.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with thin wispy head of off white suds. Touch of lace in generic pint glass at local Beef O’Brady’s.

Nose: Tropical fruits and citrus hops. Delicious already, and outstanding already!

Taste: Wonderfully tropical. Not too bitter at all but with a heavy-duty hopped up presence. Nice body, plenty of flavor, wonderful beer! Would pick this one up if I could find it bottled!

10 speed tastes like pineapple, tropical fruit, pine resin bitterness and a hint of blueberry. The red wheat and Mosiac hop compliment each other tremendously. I'm so glad the brewery made this beer year round because it is fantastic. One of the best spring/summer beers I have ever tasted.
