Dan picked up a non-local American Wheat to-go, Civil Society Brewing Pulp, while out having a beer to support one of the local bars.
STYLE: American Wheat Ale
INGREDIENTS: Wheat, Pilsner malt; Mosaic hops throughout including double dry hop
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can; Draft
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can/website.
Hazy, almost burnt orange with a large, foamy, white head.
Fresh-squeezed citrus juice.
Fresh-squeezed plus a faint bitterness from the dry hop.
Mouth-coating, with roundness from the wheat, and soft carbonation.
This has more hop presence than most American wheats and almost hits the pale ale level, but is still thoroughly drinkable. A lot of different food pairings, though I was leaning towards fish or seafood, lighter fowl, or even something like Saag Paneer or a cream-based dish.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
