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.

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

Picked up a bottle at the grocery with high hopes from this great brewery. Poured a hazy orange and very bubbly into a pint glass. Seemed like a good summer beer for a warm weekend night. Smell is not strong but I might detect a little cherry. Taste is strange. It is slightly sour with a little fruit tones. I didn't enjoy the flavor and while I could see this wheat beer being refreshing in the heat, the flavor turned me off. I'm glad I got just one.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 4% abv

Appearance- Pours a light amber with a light tint of red. Course bubbled head quick to dissipate. Very clear.

Smell- Cooked grains, cherry tartness

Taste- Semi sweet grain base, wheaty. Tartness arrives from a big wave of cherry flavor. Sour, but only slightly. Finishes dry yet bitter, still retaining the cherry notes.

Mouthfeel- Light in body with medium carbonation.

Overall- Lots of tart cherry notes for a light beer. Very sessionable and refreshing. not too much in terms of complexity, a semi sour cherry wheat beer here.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. At first blush ;^) this has a very pleasant rose hue. There is more wheat then cherry on the nose, but the flavor is well balanced. Perfect for a long hot summer leave-me-alone afternoon & at only 4%, add the evening hours in.
