Year of New Beer: In The Wheat of the Moment, Mirror Twin Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 08/13/2020

Outside of goses, I don't drink a ton of wheat beers. So I'm glad that I paid attention to the early rave reviews on this one. Really nice nose...uncomplicated but filled with orange/tangerine and a subtle, marshmallow creaminess. On the tongue, the tangerine hits initially in a fashion reminiscent of Tang, the orange drink from years ago. But it doesn't take long for the vanilla and lactose to kick in and turn this into dreamsicle in beer form. Perfectly balanced citrus and sweetness, zero alcohol presence. Well done. Looks like I'll need to make another trip to National Avenue this weekend.
