Notes / Commercial Description:
“Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I have hope for the human race.” —H.G. Wells

Like an early morning summer ride through the Indiana countryside, this American wheat ale is golden and hazy with earthy pine and tropical fruit notes rippling throughout each sip. Mosaic hops bring their unique aromas of crisp citrus and juicy pineapple, creating an invigorating finish full of single-hopped bliss.

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.

One of the first hoppy wheats I ever tried. Still in love with it to this day.

Cloudy, golden color.

Wheaty, fruity smell.

Well-balanced taste--sweet wheat nicely tempered by the hops, which are fruity.

Medium-bodied, good head retention.

Overall a great beer, one of my favorites in Southern Indiana.

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!

Loads of pine, mango, grapefruit, and peach. This is the most refreshing and juiciest hoppy wheat beer I've had. I also think it's by far BBC's best beer. If only I lived closer to Bloomington. I'd drink this all the time. I do hope they start packaging this in 6 packs or 4 pack tallboys though.

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.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy + spicy + citrus/grapefruit rind hops over the top of light aromas of wheat + biscuit + toasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat malts with light flavors of biscuit + toasted malts. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of grassy + spicy + citrus/grapefruit rind hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with a relatively clean finish.

O: Very easy to drink, refreshing, and enjoyable. I could easily have a couple of these in a session - a nice light amount of hoppiness to a solid wheat ale.

I had this beer at the Brewpub and it is fantastic. One of the best Spring/Summer/Fall beers I have ever had. I wish it was available all year. It tastes like pineapple, tropical fruit, pine resin, peach skin, grapefruit and nectarines
