I Believe You Can Get Me Through the Night...

Troegs Dreamweaver Wheat:

This is a groovy interpretation of the wheat style that is becoming more and more available these days. An awesome thing: People are more and more willing to try beers with hazy opacity. Wheaty beers are more visible on taps and folks are willing to try them. If you get a chance to try a Troegs Dreamweaver Wheat, DO IT.

There are some spicy things going on in there, but all quite mellow. And by spice, I mean the kind of happy-go-lucky spices one might find in a dessert or a punch -- not like on a tamale. Picture a delicious bread that could be served with butter at dinner or with preserves at desert. Actually, breakfast may serve us best, topped with cream cheese. Yummy.

What the hell was I talking about? You see, Dreamweaver earns its name by luring us away from the ordinary. When one shys away from wheat beers, drift back with Dreamweaver. It's one of the better wheats around (Weihenstephan is still the ultimate wheat beer [though it's a German hefe-weizen] in my humble opinion). And its pleasant bready nature isn't heavy at all. It's amazingly drinkable at 4.8% abv and remember... unfiltered beers still contain lots of vitamins, aiding in defense against hangovers. So allow Dreamweaver to do its job. Unless you're driving, of course.
