Founders Brewing Company / Grupo Mahou-San Miguel Trigo Hoppy Wheat Lager India Pale Lager at 6.3% ABV | 35 IBU (US$1.99 at Brix Bottleshop, 355 ml, packaged on 29-Aug-2018, acquired 22-Oct-2018, reviewed 27-Oct-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of loose white head, good retention and moderate clingy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: melon, citrus, wheat, tropical fruit, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp almost tart finish. (4/5)

A nice balance of fruity and citrusy hops, with grainy wheat and cereal notes. Definitely a Lager that makes you use “for a lager” frequently. A clean, almost tart tingly finish rounds out a very pleasant and refreshing beer. (16/20)
