Commercial Description: Red wheat ale with juniper berries. A blend of East Coast Ale yeast and Belgian Saison yeast makes for an elegant and unique finish. Dry-hopped with Mosaic, Simcoe, Citra and Galaxy.

Tasting Notes: This beer is an interesting mix of styles. Deep red in hue, cloudy, and very hoppy on the nose, it is reminiscent of a good IPA. However, the wheat malt make it a little lighter on the palate, while the juniper ale adds a crisp bitterness that goes well with the dry hops. The addition of Saison yeast adds some funk to the taste.
