From Penticton BC’s Tin Whistle Brewing comes their “Summertime Coconut Hopfenweisse”. The beer pours a cloudy orange with a white head. The aroma consists of coconut, wheat, tropical fruit, citrus, banana and some sweetness. The flavour is of tropical fruit, citrus, coconut, banana, wheat, bitterness, rind and pith. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 20. This summer release reminds me of a cocktail almost and I feel that it will be really good for the hot summer months in the Okanagan or anywhere in BC.
Commercial Description: This delight has a foundation of the classic Weizen in all its wheat glory but is partnered with tropical, bright, hoppy flavours – courtesy of Citra and Mozaic hops. Coconut and banana flavours are the finishing touch.
