Dan tastes a refreshing seasonal wheat, Beaver Island Tangerine, via friends Rick and Paige earlier during the pandemic.
STYLE: American Wheat
INGREDIENTS: Pilsner, White Wheat, and Oats, hopped with Hallertau Magnum & Mandarina Bavaria
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce Can, Draft (Seasonal, February – July)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.
Hazy, light/straw yellow.
Muddled tangerine nose and a grainy wheat note.
Tangerine is well-pronounced on the palate all through the finish, which is fairly dry. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry finish and appropriate carbonation make this feel light on the mouthfeel.
This is a summer beverage for sure, which is in line with the seasonal-based release. The 12-ounce format is great for the lake, beach, pool, picnic, etc. Fish and seafood would definitely be a hit with this, no matter the preparation.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
