You can never be too safe…

…When it comes to a seasonal beer, especially if it is a summer Wheat or Wit.

safe beer On the way home from work, I decided to stop and pick up some beer to review because its……THIRSTDAY!  (I have been slacking in my adult beverage reviews, sorry) 

In honor of the recent summer solstice, I picked up 2 aluminum can 6-packs, a Wheat and a Wit.

IMG_2286The back of the can says:

“Nothing quite compares to a Morning Wood.  Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  Brewed and canned at 9,156 feet above sea level in Dillion, Colorado, it is no wonder that Morning Wood Wheat is an award winner.  Each can is filled at high altitude and with the attitude of our brewers.”

Our thoughts: 

A lighter wheat, more like a light beer than your typical Wheat.  Refreshing and easy to drink.  Nothing overly special, but would be a great beer to bring on a hike and drink at the top of a mountain.  Plus it has a hilarious name!

“This Ale is our take on a classic Belgian Wit.  To make this wit unique, we add un-malted wheat, rolled oats, two varieties of classic European hops, chamomile, curacao orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, and a rare yeast strain from the Old Country.  This is a brew that can be enjoyed both on the slopes or on the beach.”

Our thoughts:

We had too high of expectations for this brew and were thinking it would be similar to the Avery White Rascal that we love.  Unfortunately it has a strange spiced flavor and tasted a little watered down?  It has a weird taste and I don’t think we will be purchasing this again.  Bummer (also, this was $8.99 for a 6-pack, WAY over-priced).
