Tippled your way through our last list, have you? That’s okay—our love of craft beer knows no bounds.
Les Trois Mousquetaires Hopfenweisse (Canada, 6%)
Hazy dark gold, white head. Grass and hops on the nose. Wheat and herbal notes on the palate; German wheat with American hops makes for an interesting brew.
MIKKELLER Canadian Dream (Denmark, 4.6%)
Clear orange, thick head. Burnt orange and hops on the nose, sweet citrus cut with acidity on the palate, along with pleasant bitterness. Bravo!
Thornbridge Kipling South Pacific Ale (England, 5.2%)
Clear yellow, modest head. Citrus and hops on the nose, light and lively on the palate with grapefruit and a long finish.
Hofbrau Hefe Weizen (Germany, 5.1%)
Golden but extremely cloudy. Banana and spice on the nose, bread, malt, yeast, lemon, and orange peel on the palate. Smooth but robust.
Nogne O Saison (Norway, 6.5%)
Hazy straw, generous head. The nose is slightly smoky, but citrus notes dominate. Citrus, malts, and hops are all balanced on the palate.
Ommegang Hennepin (USA, 7.7%)
Pale gold, very hazy. The nose is composed of wheat, honey, and spice—that is, it’s more like a wheat beer than a saison. Wheat starts off the palate, but it’s cut with floral hops.
