The Bobcat Café & Brewery
Vermont, United States

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A straw colored wheat ale, very light in body with medium flavor using a 50/50 combination of barley and wheat malts. Noble Hallertau hops are barely perceived for this smooth summer beer. Not so big as a Weizen Bock, but not a wimpy beer either. It will sneak up on ya at 6.0%.

15 IBU

Pours a light golden color with a one finger head and not as much carbonation.

Aroma is sweet with a subtle clove aroma in the nose.

Taste is smooth and wheaty with a nice hint of clove upfront. Reminds me of an authenic german hefe.

Mouthfeel is clean and full of lingering clove and wheat flavors.

A decent wheat ale. Drinkable and goes good with a meal.

Off the tap at the café in Bristol this wheat ale was a golden color with a great amount of rising carbonation in it. The head was white, the retention nice and the lacing pretty good (but not great). The aroma was lightly sweet and clean, fresh wheat and faint hops. The flavors started semi-sweet with tart citrus notes then it became lightly dry with wheat and mildly floral hops. It was a little acidic but crisp and refreshing. The mouthfeel was smooth, the body medium and the carbonation a little fizzy. Simple but summery. Original Gravity 1.056, IBU: 15.
