    N/A

    An ultra smooth wheat beer made with real vanilla beans. Light bodied, crisp flavour and a hint of sweetness. Cool with a fried chicken salad. 

  • Angry Minnow Honey Wheat

    N/A

    This golden brew is made with fresh pilsen malt, wheat, Gambrinnus honey malt and 50 pounds of local honey.

  • Worcester's Bravest Ale

    N/A

    This Wormtown beer is a hazy golden wheat ale. Aromatics of grain and spicy wheat meld with low level zesty citrus. Light sweetness on the palate turns drier with effervescent carb...

    Had I known that such a thing as chocolate beer existed, I may have learned to enjoy beer much quicker and easier. My lovely fiance plucked this beauty off of the shelves for me earlier this week and I have been both slightly frightened and anxiously curious to try it.

    There's not a whole lot to say about the color, as it's your typical burnt gold, thin and watery-looking with very little haziness. But the head? That is the best head I have ever seen. Can't beat 3-fingers thick. Thick, fluffy, white, and it stuck around for a good long while, losing very little weight as I let it sit. I took about 10 photos of it and would put them in my wallet to show off if I had a wallet. Or anyone to show them to. Or if I was a crazy person...I'm not crazy.

    As I got over the awesomeness of the foam, actually, even before I became preoccupied with the foam...CHOCOLATE! Seriously, my nose was overcome with chocolate. I buried my nose in the glass and immediately was overcome with warmth and happiness; it was like holding a mug of hot chocolate on a freezing winter night. Only everything was literally in reverse. Either way, the smell was unmistakably white chocolate and cocoa powder with a light hint of wheat.

    Once it was in my mouth, it more closely resembled the aftertaste of dark chocolate but in a lighter chocolate. To make more sense, it was a tart white chocolate. And although the ale has quite a thin mouth feel, it never really falls off into the watery category. Closely followed by the immensely pleasurable chocolate is the light wheat again. The best part about this beer was that the chocolate was not overwhelming and allowed it to taste like a hefeweizen infused with chocolate, rather than chocolate dipped in beer.

    I would definitely try this again, though with some dessert, like crème brûlée or chocolate covered strawberries or fondue. This is a mid-winter beer, for 50º and below only and make sure there are going to be plenty of sweet, sweet after-dinner delights to pair with the already sweet company you'll hopefully have.
