This Wheat has a Brogue

I am glad that the venerable Guinness is “opening the gate” and doing beers outside the Stout zone. Which is why that I am glad to see the new Irish Wheat hit our shores.

Why? Because America seems to have the mantle of taking a classic style and American-izing it. So why can’t there be an Irish take on a hefe?

Here is what Guinness has to say about Irish Wheat:
It “is a clean, crisp refreshing tasting beer with notes of zesty citrus, subtle clove and banana. It is light, golden with a typical wheat haze.”

Sounds like a summer beer to me.
