BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

Brewed with Michigan honey.
1062 OG; 17 IBU

This beer tried being something it wasn't. The hops were a bit too pronounced for the style and it did not blend well. But it was drinkable I guess, especially on a hot day.

A: Pours a hazy copper, more along the lines of a pale ale than a wheat. A little head with not much retention and little lacing.

S: The spices lead, particularly the coriander - honey, bread, and fruit are also there. It smells like a tripel.

T: Spicy for a wheat, the coriander leans forward and again, it's like a tripel. The wheat is strong - is a little something extra for the style.

M: Not my favorite. Feels watered down and a bit old.

A different wheat, but not sure I'd buy again.

Really hollow in terms of body. The wheat is the main player here. Ok and drinkable but not exciting.
