New Belgium Snapshot


Here’s a snapshot of a Snapshot. Thankfully, this beer isn’t called New Belgium Selfie. It’s a 2014 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival beer, so let’s discuss! Most of the beers at Hops and Barley are wheat beers with fruity flavor to them. Leinenkugel’s Seasonal Shandy and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat both are full of fruit…. → Read More

Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier


“The World’s Oldest Brewery” boasts the label. Can this be proven without a doubt? Probably not, but Weihenstephan has a good claim. Originally the brewery of the Weihenstephan Abbey, Weihenstephan Brewery can document its existence as far back as the year 768. The abbey’s use as a monastery ended in 1803, but the brewery still produces the flagship Hefe Weissbeer,… → Read More

Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat

Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat


Way back in the day, when I went to a work conference that was being held at the Swan & Dolphin, we meandered over to the Cabana bar probably on a daily basis to grab a drink or two.  Yes, my job willingly paid me to go to Disney World.  Little did they know what… → Read More

Samuel Adams Summer Ale


The summer seasonal from the Boston Beer Company is Samuel Adams Summer Ale. Referred to as an American wheat ale, its inspiration comes from Belgian witbiers (think Hoegaarden). Samuel Adams’ twist on the style includes lemon peel and Grains of Paradise. Summer Ale has a hazy golden color with a nose full of grain. Malty… → Read More

If you are able… → Read More

Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat


Another Samuel Adams brew found at Hops and Barley during the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Cherry Wheat is an interesting beer. The name pretty much describes the beer; it’s a wheat beer with dried cherries added. A beer with fruit isn’t particularly uncommon (Abita’s Purple Haze includes raspberries, for example), but the addition… → Read More

Hoegaarden


A witbier found at the Belgium booth during the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Hoegaarden Original Belgian Wheat Beer gets its name from the village of Hoegaarden in Belgium. The witbier style originated from this village; however, this beer was first brewed in 1965 by Pierre Celis, who tried to bring back the witbier after… → Read More

Shiner Hefeweizen


Ed reviewed Shiner Hefeweizen (originally called Honey Wheat) back in December and loved it. Since it’s part of the Shiner Family Reunion, now it’s my turn to try this one. It’s a nice shade of golden orange and a bit cloudy; flavors of wheat and lemon are dominant in this beer. It’s fairly light, but… → Read More

Kona Wailua – Yum


I picked up Kona Brewing Company’s season beer, Kona Wailua because I love their Longboard beer commonly found at the Polynesian resort. Kona Wailua is a wheat ale blended with tropical passion fruit and has a slightly sweet/sour flavor. It’s not an overpowering beer and is fairly refreshing, especially in the summer heat (well at… → Read More
