BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Sea Rose tart cherry wheat ale is a fresh take on fruit beers. Originally conceived during an employee-led R&D brew, it’s one of our most imaginative recipes yet. The American wheat style is light and clean, while fresh cherry juice adds a soft coral color and fruity nose that gives way to a dry, slightly tart finish. It’s approachable, yet unexpected—exactly what we love to brew.

I am not a big fan of fruit beers (other than citrusy ones, just my own preference) but this one is pretty smooth. Golden colour and off white head smells and tastes of slight malts with hops and maybe cherry. Pretty smooth. You could do worst. Prost!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi-clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mild tart hops . A slightly above average beer. very sessionable.

Sea Rose has a medium, white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, some haze, some ascending, lone bubbles, and lots of powdery and chunky tan sediment, throughout. Aroma is of very faint wheat bread and tart fruit, and the flavor is the same, but it's very muted. Mouthfeel is thin, and Sea Rose finishes crisp and bland.

DATE: September 23, 2017.. OCCASION: big soccer Saturday finishes with scouts and PSU/Iowa... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner weizen glass... pours a bright golden bosy with reasonable effervescence... head is thick, two-fingered, and snow white... lacing arches up and over the cloud... cherry is relevant but not impactful... more immediate is creamy yeasts that alerts the nose to its wheat backbone... floral notes suggest hops are mingling in this... body is creamy, lively, and crisp... refreshing and light in its ABV... the cherry is subtle--and not a bad thing, given the softening of the wheat... flower and hop meld with the tartness to create a pleasant, softened profile... nothing I would run to, but a solid fruit beer that I would not refuse if given...

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with a slight pinkish hue and a frothy faintly pink head that settles to a light layer that leaves some nice lacing.

S: Tart cherry, a little wheat twang, maybe a hint of pomegranate.

T: Mild to moderate lactic tartness, green apple and lemon, a little wheat twang, with the cherry coming through on the back end and the after taste.

M: Light body, slightly prickly carbonation.

O: Good warm weather beer, light crisp change of pace, but not much beyond that.

A: A very light peach pink color with a light pinkish white head.

S: Light cherry, with bread, and something funky. This has a little bit of a dirty dish sponge aroma that comes out in some wheat beers for me...

T: Tart cherry, funky bread, and dish sponge, with a tart finish.

M: Medium light with moderate carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

O: A bit funky... and not in a way I really like.. not bad, just not great.

L: dark gold with a light haze and a slight red tint under a robust 1.5" white foam collar.

S: Cherry and pomegranate aromas dominate followed closely by some wheat and a very faint hint of hops

T: cherry and pomegranate with a tartness a little less than a Granny Smith apple

F: medium light body and medium to medium high carbonation

O: This mildly tart refreshing beer has some wheat beer character behind the fruit
