Ithaca Excelsior Brute

While watching football on a Sunday, my buddy Ed pulled out a bottle of Ithaca Excelsior Brute to share. The beer pours a golden color with a lofty and frothy white head. The aroma consists of vinegar, wheat, lemon, and meringue. The taste is lightly sour with lemon flavor, but not terribly puckering. There is a hint of vinegar with a sweet meringue flavor and hints of grass. The alcohol content is 6.5% ABV. This was an outstanding beer that really played with good citrus flavors. There was a certain sweetness to with the meringue flavor, and I definitely liked the slight pucker of vinegar.
