Review: Yukon Brewing Grizzly Unfiltered Wheat Ale

Yukon Brewing's Grizzly Wheat Ale is an unfiltered wheat ale. There's not really any information about this beer on the internet, so I'm going to assume that this is going to be either a Hefeweizen or a Pale Wheat Ale. 

Appearance: Grizzly pours a mildly cloudy honey-orange body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a hint of floating sediment. The head of the beer starts off with a frothy white head but gradually diminishes to be just a slim amount of film on top of the glass with very minimal amount of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Notes of honey, biscuits, banana, clove, and a hint of pepper for spiciness. This is pretty straight forward, definitely smells like an easy to drink wheat ale so far.

Taste: Fairly light but has notes of wheat (duh), a bit of honey, banana, clove, a bit of straw, mildly sweet, and a light amount of grassy bitterness at the end.

Overall Thoughts: Easy to drink Wheat Ale with a hint of spice profile to it, fairly sweet and great for summer weather.. just too bad it's winter right now. 4.6% ABV
