Pizza Boy Brewing Holy F-

I stopped in to Al’s of Hampden to try a glass of Pizza Boy Brewing Holy F-, Terry Hawbaker’s first beer for the brewery. Holy F- is an American Wheat beer brewed using no hops in the kettle, only whole leaf Columbus hops in the whirlpool. It comes in at 77 IBUs, which is amazing to me. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white colored head. The aroma consists of lemon, tangerine, orange, and caramel. The taste is light and focuses on wheat at first before pepper, lemon, earth, and funk accent the beer, all leading to a bitter finish. The alcohol content is 5% ABV. For not having any hops added in the boil, this sure is a bitter beer, but it absolutely is easy drinking and quite refreshing.
