Pours a hazy blonde in the tall tulip. A pleasant sudsy appearance. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth.

Taking a big mouthful, it takes just a second to think "grapefruit." Tastes more like grapefruit juice than any other beer I've had. Totally a fresh hop experience. But it's so anemic on the wheat flavor with so little malt to provide any balance. Thin and bitter. Not a bad hop, but it's all citrus, and the bitter pith taste just keeps on and on.

It's a decent alternative to a lighter style of IPA, if you're looking for a big mouthful of hops. In the 22 oz bottle from the Foodery in Philadelphia.

Pours a hazy yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet fruitiness of peaches, and somewhat sugary. In the taste, faint dry peach skins and a thinner flavor than nose. A smooth and light bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry faint peach skin in the aftertaste. Big nose, but a touch watery. Decent nonetheless.

Lá Bealtaine
Lavery Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
ABV: 5.00 %

Pours like a wheat beer, almost white and very pale. White head forms and leaves plenty of lace. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon and herbal elements. In the flavor, a nice dose of grapefruit and bitterness, with a light wheat malt backing. Nicely hoppy, bitter, and pretty tasty. Light bodied feel with a good level of carbonation. Overall, another winner from Lavery, a local brewery that can do no wrong it seems.
