Upland Brewing Wheat Ale

What the brewers say

“In the tradition of the Belgian wit–style, Upland Wheat Ale is unfiltered, allowing suspended yeast to create a cloudy, golden appearance. This is an everyday, every meal type of beer. It’s comforting on a cold winter day and refreshing on a hot summer evening.”

What our panel thought

A wonderfully complex aroma of spicy/peppery, citrus, and yeasty notes that gives way to an equally complex flavor profile. Flavors of pear, clove, and pepper intermingle with the wheat-malt backbone and are complemented by a clean, but distinct, hops bitterness. It finishes smooth yet clean, and the moderately high level of carbonation cleans the palate and gets you ready to jump right back in. Hard to believe so much can be packed into such a lightly colored beer.”

What our editors thought

“Gentle nose gives way to soft citrus sweetness in the sip that pulses in waves. Nicely balanced on the light side of the witbier spectrum with apparent but not excessive yeast esters. Very light yet interesting depth. A touch of bitterness rolls in under those gentle orange waves, offering structure without weighing it down.”
