Colonial Wheat Ale

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 07/31/99

I made this beer a few years ago, when I was still pretty new at all grain brewing. It was a very satisfying beer with a light body, citrusy/fruity aroma, with a dry finish. The molasses added an interesting character to it that really came out in the finish. Unfortunately, this batch succumbed to contamination. It is a little more unusual than your average wheat beer.
