An American wheat ale with sour cherry and pomegranate. The wheat ales we get in Australia are generally German or Belgian and are full of estery yeast. This adds considerable complexity, something that is lacking in the American version. Lack of complexity doesn’t mean bad however, just to be enjoyed differently!! This went down nicely on a hot Sydney night, and I suspect would be great with a piece of hard cheese like a cloth bound cheddar or manchego.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light gold with a pinkish tinge and little to no head. Strong wheat and sour cherry aromas, with only a hint of pomegranate which is a fairly neutral fruit. Light bodied with wheat and cherry sourness, along with fruit sweetness. Very low carbonation, which I enjoy for a change.
