Has a Story
With its hazy golden color & bright character, this flavorful American wheat ale says summer. The crisp citrus character of Noble hops, wheat, & lemon peel combines with the subtle peppery spice of Grains of Paradise. Grains of Paradise, also known as the Melegueta pepper, are more closely related to cardamom than pepper. According to medieval legend Grains of Paradise was erroneously thought to have aphrodisiac properties. This rare African pepper was first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, and adds just the right kick for a lively, flavorful, & utterly refreshing brew.
To create this crisp and citrusy summer favorite we combine malted wheat, lemon peel and Grains of Paradise. The pepper adds just the right bite to the crisp cereal character and lemon citrus of this unfiltered wheat ale. The ale fermentation imparts a background tropical fruit note subtly reminiscent of mangos and peaches. All of these flavors come together to create a thirst quenching, clean finishing beer perfect for those warm summer days.
Our summer brew is a spiced American wheat ale with its roots in Belgian witbiers. These “white beers” first appeared in the 14th century in a wheat growing region near Brussels. The style got its name from its lighter color and cloudiness, or veil - the result of suspended wheat proteins in the beer. Instead of using the traditional orange peel and coriander, we use lemon peel and Grains of Paradise to create our distinctive and refreshing summer quencher.
