Wheat Ale (Ipanema Summer White) – Steamworks Brewing

From the Gastown area of Vancouver Steamworks Brewing comes their “Wheat Ale” known as “Ipanema Summer White” if you go to the pub.  This is one of their first bottles of beer that has been botteled as they are looking to expand.  The beer pours a straw yellow colour that is very cloudy with a white head.  The beer smells heavily of wheat, yeast and citrus.  The flavor is of wheat bread, yeast and citrus.  This beer is very smooth and comes in at a IBU of 8.  I am happy to now be able to consume this beer outside of the bar that is it brewed at!  They Brought in the Artists that do the bottle art for the Winery Blasted Church as well to design really distinctly Vancouver Bottles!
