Brew Review – Wheat Stroke by Coppertail Brewing

I almost hate to start a blog post like this, but I can’t really go very far into drinking a Coppertail Brewing beer and writing about it without mentioning the artwork on the bottle.

There’s just so much going on, and I know the picture above doesn’t completely do it justice. But I think the guy is a runner, you can’t see the pelican with headphones, then there’s that big It’s a Small World-esque sun, and just a lot of details. All of it for Wheat Stroke (Hefeweizen; 5% ABV), their classic hefeweizen.

Actually, it’s more of a pale wheat ale. It doesn’t have the giant candy fruit aromas of banana that many classic hefeweizens have. A little less sweet, a little sharper bite.

The aroma is clean and biting. It’s a very crisp smell, and lends beautifully with a slightly malty, slightly hoppy, dark citrus flavor that lingers just a bit before fading. It’s not heavy at all, which makes it a great beer for a hot Florida summer day.

Especially if you’re running with what looks like a mermaid with a horn full of water, there’s just a lot going on with that artwork. It’s very detailed. I’m sure I haven’t seen all of the details yet.

Wheat Stroke label.

Drink Florida Craft,

Dave
