Full Sail Releases Session Wheat, Premium American-Style Hefeweizen
Crisp flavors of malted wheat are balanced by a delicately spicy hop finish
Hood River, Oregon – January 6, 2016 – Today’s forecast: Cloudy with a chance of grain. The brewers at Full Sail Brewing Company are ready to share their newest beer in the Session lineup – Session Wheat premium American-style Hefeweizen. Session Wheat is medium bodied and refreshing, featuring aromas of malted wheat with a citrusy hop finish.
“With Session Wheat, we have put our state-of-the-art mash filter to the test,” says Executive Brewmaster James Emmerson. “It allows us to use a substantial portion of unmalted wheat in the grist, which imparts a wonderful wheat character in the finished beer,” Emmerson adds.
As with all great Hefeweizens drawing upon their German roots, just enough residual yeast remains to give it a hazy golden pour. “Grown in the northwest, brewed in the northwest, Session Wheat is naturally hazy with a delicate crispness and a clean finish,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter. “It’s a refreshing, easy-drinking addition to our Session lineup.”
Session Wheat Premium Hefeweizen will be available year round in Session’s signature 11 oz. stubby bottles in 12-packs, 6-packs and on draft. 5.4% ABV, 24 IBUs. When it grains, it pours!
