Description 

WHITEWATER is an American wheat ale built for exploration. The bold hop profile adds complexity to this crisp, balanced ale, while hints of citrus, light floral notes, and a satisfying bitterness leave a perfect reminder of trails climbed and rapids subdued. Whitewater is the perfect complement to any adventure.

Everyone has their favorite summer sunshine beer -- this one might well be mine. Light but very flavorful, this is an easy-drinker that still tastes like a very cared-for beer!

Whitewater pours gold with a slight haze and a wispy white head. The aroma is characteristic of Pilsner malt with a medium honey and grain note. Despite being a "wheat" beer, it isn't in the German Weizen style, and so there's no banana and just a touch of peppery spiciness.  

The flavor echoes the aroma with a grainy, white pepper background and medium-low bitterness. This is a very refreshing beer, and the flavor doesn't overwhelm. The body is light but pleasantly "full," a thin macro lager this is not.  

This lightly spicy wheat beer can be enjoyed on many a warm summer day.
