Ophelia is a beer that looks to provide some much-needed teeth to the wheat style. The beer is able to have a fairly substantive hop bite while still being approachable to a wide segment of beer drinkers. There are fruit elements brought by the wheat style that are spun in a completely new direction with the inclusion of Mosaic and Palisade hops. The beer pours a hazy gold with a small amount of head and maintains its constellation of flavors from beginning to end. The beer is not too sweet or too hoppy, ensuring that imbibers will be able to down a few Ophelias in rapid succession. The slight hints of floral and grassy notes provide a further clarification of palettes, providing individuals the boost that they need to soldier on through the beers.
