SLO Brew Tropical P.O.G. Hefeweizen Cali Squeeze

Canned. No Date. ABV 5.4%

Apperance: Unfiltered, Merky, Hazy, Finger and half-width soapy head

Aroma: Orange Peel, Slight Guava, Wheat

Palate: Orange Peel/Zest, Slight Malt

Finish: Sweet, Tart

Experience: I was picking up some beer for my wife and I this one jumped out at me as something that she would like a lot. Also, it has been getting hot here in Fresno and it is about to be a stretch of 100+ degree weather. This beer sounded refreshing for the summer heat. I will admit my wife and I both were disappointed that it didn’t have more tropical flavors. As we let it sit out for a bit we started noticing some guava hints but not a lot. It taste more like a traditional hef (similar to a Blue Moon). I am not a huge fan of hefs just because they tend to upset my stomach but I wanted to give this one a try. My score is based solely on what it is, a hefeweizen. Score: 4/5.

SLO Brew Wave Wrangler Session IPA 

Canned. No Date. ABV 4.8% IBUs 45

Color: Gold, Apple Juice, Finger Width Head

Smell: Dank, Citrus

Taste: Sweet, Hoppy, Floral (light)

Aftermath: Hop Finish, Not Dry

Experience: This was my first beer from SLO Brew and it will not be my last. This beer had great flavor and perfect for the summer (especially here in Fresno). It had a lot of characteristics of a west coast IPA for a session with lower IBUs. I could drink this all day! I wish it was colder but that was my fault because I was so excited to try this beer. Grade 4.8/5.
