Great Divide Whitewater
Great Divide Whitewater is an American Pale Wheat Ale that is described as a Hoppy Wheat Ale on the can.
This pours with an insanely clear golden color, nice white head as well. The aroma is pleasant, but nondescript. Kind of sweet and malty, not much typical Wheat Ale character, the hops are very subdued as well. The taste brings a bit more wheat and hops to the table. Tasting some soft wheat, grass and hay, muted tropical fruits (some mango maybe?) and a bit of black pepper. A quick search of the Great Divide website revealed no information about what hops were used, but I like the dry, spicy and slightly piney finish on this beer.
I don’t think I’m a big enough fan of the style to grab more of this, but that is not for lack of quality. If you dig on both Wheat Ales and hoppy beers you should give this a go. This would work in both the heat of the summer or as a transitional beer between seasons.
