Capital Island Wheat

Capital Brewery

USA

This is an American Wheat Ale, not a Weissbier. Big difference. Normally, AWA's often make me cringe. They have occasionally reintroduced my taste buds to that lovely flavor we call "bile." This, however, didn't do that. It's a solid wheat ale, with that nice hint of lemon, that light wheat flavor, and no sign of it being watered-down, a trait shared by many AWA's. In other words, it was drinkable. It's certainly not meant to be a Hefeweizen, Capital already has one. And, if that kind of thing is important, Capital uses indigenous wheat, from Washington Island WI, out in Lake Michigan, so they support local farmers. Gotta love Capital.
