Tallgrass Halcyon Wheat

The Tallgrass Brewing Company is in Manhattan, Kansas. They make a great lineup of beers. This unfiltered beer uses white wheat and Citra and Nugget hops. The can thanks Bill Mai, the wheat farmer from Wallace County, Kansas who grows their wheat.

The beer pours a hazy dark golden in color. There is about an inch of pure white foamy head. The aroma is delicious tropical fruits over toasted wheat, amazing aroma. I’m unable to draw out any particular fruits, but the overall effect of its fruitiness is amazing. The taste follows the aromas directly. It has a smoothness in the mouth, very light bitterness, and nice carbonation.  I only wish the taste was as intense as the aroma. The aftertaste is pleasant and I start to get some mango and pineapple out of the general fruitiness, passion fruit without the bitterness. Great hopped up American wheat beer, all fruit, no bitterness.
