Beer- Altered Wheat
Good beer should be enjoyed with good friends. We took this to heart when we asked two of our brewers, who have been lifelong friends to created a new altered view on pale ale. Altered Pale Ale is a unique blend of 2-row and wheat malt with an abundant use of hand-selected hops alongside our main ingredient: Friendship. Christian Moerlein Altered Pale Ale is the hoppy equivalent to a tight group of besties. Keep your friends close, and this can even closer.
I’m not 100% sure what friendship tastes like, but I can tell you that this beer is pretty tasty. Is it a pale ale? Is it a wheat beer? I’m also not really sure on that one, but that’s the type of craft beer that I really love. A beer that makes you think, makes you talk. And this beer does just that.
It pours a very beautiful copper color with a big fluffy white head on it. Aromas of bread and a very fresh sweetish grassiness hit your nose.
When you taste this beer you are greeted with a big flavor full of fresh spicy and earthy hops, with a caramel undercurrent of bread. What really strikes me is the fuller mouthfeel, that is washed away nice and clear. This is a perfect beer for a warm day, it’s clean, refreshing and fresh tasting. Great Stuff!
