Week 2 ::: COLETTE

Great Divide Brewing Company

This week’s beer is a suggestion from the staff at Beer Crate in KC. I asked for an interesting wheat beer and COLETTE proved to be just that. The immediate thought that came to mind while drinking it was hoengarden with a twist. this makes sense if you read the label on the bottle that states this is a homage to the Belgian farmers. Utilizing four kinds of wheat this beer provides the light wheat taste you look for in the summer heat without the over-hoppy or cardboard finish some others tend to leave you with. If you let it sit for just a second you will catch the [very] slight fruity sour taste that makes this beer special.

Week 1 ::: Paulaner Hefe-Weizen

This week’s beer is a nice German beer from Munich. It is a wheat beer that is most known for it’s banana flavor profile. This amber bodied ale has hints of citrus, banana and a hint of spice. In the upcoming summer months this wheat beer is not as heavy as it appears and is one of my personal favorites. This beer can be found at your local Flying Saucer and most Drought Emporiums
