For the Sixth Beer of Christmas, we visit the home of fine wines.
The beer pours out in a clean, clear golden color with a nearly white
head that dissolves so rapidly that I missed the first photo op and had
to top off the glass and take the picture very quickly. The aroma is
very faint. Pleasant, but faint. A mild wheat with a little citrus.
Maybe lemon. It didn’t scream “drink me!” like the previous five beers.
The taste is clean and crisp. But a little lacking in the flavor
department. A little lemon, a touch of coriander, and a bit of, no
Don’t get me wrong, this is a light bodied beer that’s easy to drink.
It’s not one I’m going to grab when I want to sit back with friends or
just watch some TV. But, on a hot day when I just want something to
quench my thirst, this would do the trick. But, honestly, last year’s
Lawnmower from Saint Arnold’s is my mowing and working outside beer. But
I would definitely drink this if someone brought it over.
By the way … I have some fence to build this coming summer. Come on
over and help. And if you bring some Napa Smith Wheat Beer, I’ll be
happy to drink it with you!
