Down to Nickel Brook again for their take on a classic wheat beer.
Onto the tasting.
Luminescent gold with a hint of green. Very large white head made up of small bubbles that disperses quickly to almost nothing. Aroma is very wheaty, peppery, and spicy. First sip is apple and citrus. Tangy, zippy, slightly sour. Finish is roasted wheat malt, toasted bread, and grapes. Very light and fruity. Aeration, is lactic and malic acid and toasty wheat.

This is quite a good beer. Very lively with a lot going on. Excellent for the patio even better for the BBQ. Serve in place of a sparkling wine.
