To be honest, I believe this would be my first ever true wheat beer. Sure, I’ve tried many different brew styles that are, in part, brewed with wheat malt. But this all all wheat. It’s also all head, all sweetness and a fine matching zing of something almost citrus but not quite.
The first aroma note that hit me upon opening the bottle, is the smell common smell of many European beers – thought not quite as overpowering. My first thought upon tasting was “Wow! That’s very sweet!” Of course, this comes from my reading about various wheat beer styles that can be sour. But that’s not to say this brew isn’t sweet in taste. More so then I’d expect. But it damn sure works for this style.
I also expected a creamy, full mouthfeel. Once again, I was wrong. This drop rolls off the tongue and leaves you wanting more. Especially if you’re eating jalapenos while trying this brew.
This is definitely a brew I will go back to try again and again. Full of surprises – but in a good way.
