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.

Golden colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is faint tart cherry and some bready malts. Overall a pretty average beer that I pretty much could take or leave.

Dr. Strauss checking in, just after the consumption of the illustrious Sea Rose! It may not be the best beer I've had, but it certainty horned me up.

The beer was fine.

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.
