Beer of the Week 31 Blue Star Wheat Beer

North Coast brewing Company's Blue Star Wheat Beer

From the label:

Choice American barley and wheat malts are combined with a blend of noble hops to create this lighthearted, refreshing beer. Blue Star is unfiltered, the yeast adding a complex note to the flavor profile. Water, malt, hops, yeast & that’s all.

From my notes:

Beautiful, cloudy, straw color. Thick, fine bubbled, bone colored head, lasts a moderate amount of time, minimal lacing. High carbonation. Smells of citrus (oranges), and potpourri spices. Tastes of wheat with the hint of citrus, spice, and yeast. Delicate. Clean and crisp finish.

As I said beautiful star coloring and a nice thick head

Blue Star is a prefect beer for Spring and Summer. Clear, crisp and refreshing Blue Star would be a great choice for outdoor and indoor grilling, a afternoon at the beach or an evening spent around the campfire, great for session drinking as well. Almost as good as their Scrimshaw, one of my favorite beers.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
