Frosty Paws Spring Wheat Beer
Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 05/14/98
This batch hasn't been thououghly tasted yet, but it seems to be okay. Initially there was a rather harsh taste in the finish, almost tasted like orange peels, but it has disapated greatly. In fact, I could barely taste it in the last sample I had. There are not any off aromas and my guess is that it is just young. It is not as light in body as I would have liked and some crazy weather let the fermentaion temps fluctuate quite a bit. It does has a nice flavor with very little hops bitterness and flavor. It is very pale, albeit a little cloudy, and to my best guess is about right for the style. The caravienne adds a nice subtle touch to the beer but it could do wihtout it.
