Nashoba Valley Wattaquadoc Wheat

I’ve been on vacation all week, and it’s now winding down. We’ve been surprisingly busy all week. Today we’re taking advantage of a day off with no plans. The wife is napping on the couch and I’m doing a rare mid-afternoon beer review.

Tomorrow is the American Craft Beer Festival in Boston. I’m volunteering at the 1:00pm session. I hope I can run into some of my readers while I’m working. Also looking forward to meeting some new people!

I’m finally getting back to reviewing the brews from Nashoba Valley that I promised to do earlier this week. This afternoon I’m cracking open a Wattaquadoc Wheat, which is a hefeweizen. The beer is named after the road that the brewery is on: Wattaquadoc Hill Road.

Wattaquadoc has the typical banana aroma I get from wheaty, spicy beers. It also has some clove smell to it.

The beer is a color I can only describe as dirty orange. There was a good head on it, but it fizzled right away. The beer has a heavy carbonation which probably forced the head to die.

The beer has a spicy citrusy flavor. Lemon is the main flavor. It’s quite tasty, and the lemon mixes well with the spice. The carbonation is a bit over-done, but that’s my only complaint. Another good brew from Nashoba.
