Your Daily Pint for Tuesday, July 30, 2014, is: MIKKELLER WHEAT IS THE NEW HOPS
What it is: A 6%-ABV hoppy wheat beer brewed with Brettanomyces and aged in chardonnay barrels
What it tastes like: Like mimosas will never taste good again. It’s a gorgeous tango of bucolic wheat, hay and grass; bright lemon, yeast and that wheat form a tart trio that pinches the cheeks and gives the beer serious air. Hops add a subtle green note, but serve more to keep all the bouncy brightness at ground level.
