Second review of the night. I’m actually starting to catch up and hopefully I’ll get to the point where I have exactly enough reviews for one per day for the past two years. I really am liking the whole using themes to explore new beers. It’s forcing me to try beers that I would normally walk by in the beer store. So, let’s get to it.
Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
Trivia: This beer is now retired. At least I got to it before it was permanently gone!
Random: My cat insists on sitting on the computer as I review. It makes it quite difficult to type.
So, as I opened the brew, it exploded. Not a crazy huge explosion, but a slow and steady explosion. Once I controlled that, it poured with a significant two finger pure white head that took forever to dissipated and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with a huge amount of carbonation. The nose had some raspberry and an astringent note to it as well. The taste was quite odd. It tasted like seltzer that had a raspberry dipped into it. The astringent note that was apparent in the nose came out after a few sips in the taste. The flavor was pretty boring and just didn’t do much for me. I could see why they were retiring it. The body was very light with heavy carbonation. It finished almost instantly with nothing of note. I wouldn’t have this again…not that I could, since it’s being retired. Avoid.
