Declaration Brewing Company Veiled Vixen Strawberry Wheat

What the brewers say

“Definite strawberry on the nose of this delicate wheat beer. A nice white head with light strawberry flavor up front and a wheat finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Peachy at first, and then the strawberry emerges. And even more fruit, with grapefruit, grape, and citrus, some light sweetness and tartness, and a bit of stone fruit. White pepper spice phenolics, and baking soda mineral notes.”

Flavor: “The wheat body of the base beer is great for the fruitiness of the beer, and has a bit of breadiness and sweetness, and is light and dry. The fruit notes in the flavor aren’t specific to strawberry but also include white grape, citrus, and watermelon rind—the strawberry is especially present in the retronasal exhale. The hops flavors are citrusy, slightly grassy, providing balance. Light and dry, with a tart, astringent, lightly bitter finish.”

Overall: “Well executed beer, and the aroma is fairly subtle, even for a subtle fruit like strawberry. It’s very light and finishes a bit harsh from the bitterness. While it has some good flavors, it could use some more balance and nuance.”
