Lavery Brewing La Bealtaine White Fire Wheat Ale

While in Pittsburgh at Carson Street Deli, I picked up a bottle of Lavery Brewing La Bealtaine White Fire Wheat Ale. The beer pours a golden-yellow color with a lofty and frothy white head that leaves specks of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hop funk, lemon, wheat, grass, tangerine, orange, and pepper. The taste is light at first before a strong hop punch kick in and takes over. The hop flavor brings a funk and citrus flavors including lemon, orange, and tangerine. Pepper and spruce finish out the the beer with a grassy after taste. The mouth feel is very bubbly and champagne-like on the tongue. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. This was a wonderful wheat beer that packs a great hop punch, reminiscent of some of the beers I have received in the Rare Beer of the Month Club, but much cheaper.
