Commercial Description
Ben Gleason has been growing organic wheat for twenty eight years at his farm in Bridport, Vermont, just ten miles from our brewery.
Our brewers have combined Ben’s organic raw wheat, organic rolled oats, and organic 2-row malted barley.
The resulting golden brew is then mildly spiced with organic coriander and orange peel and fermented with an authentic Belgian yeast to create this complex and refreshing white ale. A fitting salute to Ben Gleason.

    Poured a hazy golden yellow color with thin white head that dissipated quickly leaving just a little lacing.
    Smells mostly of wheat with coriander, citrus and spicy notes.
    Taste is not too complex. Wheaty with coriander and spicy pepper notes adding a hint of citrus.
    High carbonation, Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. Overall a nice, mild interpretation of the style.
