BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Southern Tier Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
An Imperial Wheat Ale brewed with blood orange juice, tangerine and grapefruit peels. 3 Citrus Peel Out is the newest in the company’s seasonal Imperial Series. It features an 8.5% ABV, a grain bill consisting of 35% wheat, CTZ & Mosaic hops and a walloping amount of citrus. Over four and a half pounds of tangerine & grapefruit peel per barrel accompany tropical flavors from Mosaic hops and an added boost of blood orange juice during fermentation. This refreshing brew sits around 30 IBU and its nice citrus pith complements the bitterness. Residual sweetness helps accentuate the fruity character and masks the 8.5% ABV well.

Southern Tier founder, Phin DeMink notes; “We encourage craft beer connoisseurs and folks new to craft to enjoy it straight up or served on the rocks with soda & wedge of fresh fruit. We’ve loved it with simple syrup & a shot of our favorite spirit. No matter how you serve it, 3 Citrus Peel Out is the summer refresher you’re looking for.”

From the bottle, it pours a nice clear golden color with a modest head, soon diminishing to a ring. Citrus is apparent in the nose. In the mouth, citrus definitely comes through, finishing with citrus on the tongue.

Poured from bottle into weizen glass. Deep gold with a hint of orange and clear. Grapefruit and orange on the nose. Tart with a very citrus finish, dominated by grapefruits and orange. Medium bodied. A very nice summer take on the style. Though like another reviewer mentioned the citrus flavor becomes overpowering towards the end.

Poured from a small growler into a MadTree tulip. The pour is deep gold, very clear, and sports a thin head of fine white foam. The nose has a powerful citrus character to it: lots of orange peel, fresh grapefruit, and lemon zest.

Medium-light body with a firm feel. Slightly tart up front, then a strong citrus flavor. Lots of fresh grapefruit juice, grapefruit pulp, and orange skins. Very refreshing, though that strong citrus character does get old a bit fast. Still, this is a nice take on an otherwise boring style. It's encouraging to come across an interesting wheat ale that has something going for it besides a lot of hops. I feel I could have this with breakfast and get my vitamins in the morning!

16.9 oz. Bottle
DOB: 03/05/18

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, wheaty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango). The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, wheaty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango), nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Nice take on the style. Nice to see it around here.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. dob 3/21/17, so 13 month old. damn, thought it was this spring release.

clear pale golden yellow body, medium carbonation, small head dissipating to a ring and covering.

kind of a boozy aroma.

none of the flavors are powerful, but the blood orange is the strongest. overall flavor leaning a bit more to sweet than bittersweet. no evidence of grapefruit or orange peel.

mouth around medium, finish a sweet wash followed by a very faint bitterness.

overall, likely affected by the age. will re-review if I come across a fresher one. as it stands, this one didn't do much for me.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow-orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of citrus (duh), wheat, hops, and spices.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of hops, a bit of wheat (mostly in the finish), some spices (coriander, a little pepper), lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit) and slight dank quality. Didn't get much of the tangerine, though. This is a sweet, lively flavor that's fairly complex. A good balance between the citrus sweetness and the wheat and hops.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an interesting take on the style. Definitely drinkable.
