What the brewers say

“Light and refreshing, Easy Street Wheat is unfiltered. Leaving in the yeast gives the beer a smooth finish and a slightly citrusy flavor.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A breath of graham cracker−like wheat, a touch of bread, and a clean, very low yeast character. Some light citrus esters, and a touch of herbal, grassy hops and raw wort, plus a sense of some bitterness to come.”

Flavor: “The aroma suggested a more hops-forward flavor than comes through. A delicate balance of low bready malt character with a hint of graham cracker and a bit of earthy and herbal hops. Some fruit esters emerge as peach and nectarine, along with some unexpected almost Brett-like notes. Medium body with a touch of sweetness. The finish is a touch bitter and a little watery.”

Overall: “Very refreshing and easy to drink—this beer is balanced and clean, with the malt and hops in harmony. Some nice hops on the nose, but not the expected bitterness in the flavor. A great lawnmower beer. The soft palate makes this a good pairing for food.”
