Description 

Our take on Wheat Beer, this light-bodied brew marries a hint of hops with a twinge of tartness for a subtle citrus flavor. Our smoothest, most refreshing brew, it’s the perfect tonic for our hot and humid Alabama summers.

The beer pours straw yellow in color with noticeable haziness and a creamy white head. The malt presents as grainy and doughy with a bit of a minerally kick to it. There are some apple esters with a hint of pear that marries with a light floral hop note in the nose. The bitterness is surprisingly firm for an American Wheat and moderately high in intensity – more similar to what you might find in a Pale Ale. The bitterness clashes with the graininess of the wheat; it lingers on the palate too long to be refreshing. A bit of lemon and citrus appear in the flavor as it warms along with a slight sulfur note in the aroma. This is more of an aggressive wheat beer than most may be used to in the market, but it makes up for it with more depth of flavor than one might expect from the style.
