Slammer Wheat

22 oz bottle from Hop City, GA, USA.
Nice presentation, I like the artwork, and having been to the brewery it certain is in keeping with the branding that they are looking for.
I first tasted this beer way back in February or march of this year when I visited the brewery. I thoroughly enjoyed it then, so i was delighted to see that the bottles had finally made it out a couple of weeks ago – good stuff.
A honey colored, orange pour with nice cloudiness, a decent yeast sediment that makes its way into the Tucher Weizen 0.5 L glass and produces a light, non-dense head with a touch of lace.
The nose offers some sharp, fruity acidity and this is what we find in the initial tastes, too. Light citrus notes are the main feature here. A higher hop profile that perhaps is usual for the style, and all in all this beer has a MUCH deeper presence and depth than is usual for the style. Impressively brewed, Slammer Wheat seems to go well beyond the parameters of the style and to a heavier “more present” mouthfeel. A few soapy notes that become quite a feature of the taste.
Definitely a beer that packs a good punch and fights well above its own style-weight. tasty, drinkable and a welcome addition to the local scene.
