Rocks Brewing releases Blueberry Wheat Beer

January 22, 2016

unnamed (10)Following on from the success of last year’s Passion Fruit Wheat Beer, Rocks Brewing Co have taken the same base wheat beer but have thrown in seasonal Blueberries to the mix to create a different adaptation.

With a tight creamy head, the fresh blueberries impart a deep purple colour with crimson highlights.

Aromas left from the Munich Wheat yeast give off strong clove characters with a hint of fruit aroma from the blueberries. The late addition of Pacific Gem hops give a hint of blackberry aroma and with the clove characters and fresh blueberries, this beer has a great balance with a strong fruity scent.

The 95% wheat malt bill brings a low bitterness to the beer while the blueberry tartness adds a small kick and ensures a nice finish on the palate.

Malt: 95% Wheat and 5% Rye

Hops: Super Alpha, Mandarina Bavaria, Nelson Sauvin, NZ Pacific Gem

Yeast: Munich Wheat

Alcohol: 4.4%
