Har­poon UFO Twist

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Wheat With Fruit -

ABV: 4.8% | IBUS: 10 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“This he­feweizen is hazy and golden in color and gives you the per­fect twist for your beer reper­toire; blood orange brings the cit­rusy zest, and berg­amot brings the zip.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A com­plex cit­rus aroma of tan­ger­ine, le­mon, grape­fruit, and lime, that blends with an herbal earth­i­ness. Spicy phe­no­lic notes and pep­per min­gle with vanilla and bready malt and grains of par­adise. It’s lightly per­fumed with just enough sweet­ness.” Fla­vor: “Orange, tan­ger­ine, lime, le­mon, and it’s zesty and pulpy, lightly tart, and re­fresh­ing. The malt is a bready wheat with a nice cracker that’s cut with rye. Some pep­per and spice, and an un­der­cur­rent of Earl Grey, berg­amot, and herbal dank­ness. Creamy mouth­feel and some fruity es­ters that end in a nice, dry fin­ish.” Over­all: “So com­plex and re­fresh­ing with all the cit­rus aro­mas and malty back­bone. Blood orange and berg­amot are in bal­ance, and I can still tell this is beer. Well-con­ceived, seam­lessly ex­e­cuted, and an in­cred­i­bly drink­able beer that de­spite the high con­cept, de­liv­ers a near-per­fect beer.”
