There’s a local brew that I’m really enjoying this summer. It’s not one of those fancy high point beers, the grooviest new IPA, a sour beer sensation, or even the newest kid on the block. But it’s a dependable, refreshing beer that just seems to hit the right spot: Wasatch Blueberry Hefeweizen.
Wasatch Brewery is part of the Utah Brewers Cooperative, which also includes Squatters. Wasatch Blueberry Hefeweizen is a relatively low alcohol (4%) brew that smells like blueberry pancakes when you pop the top.
It’s crisp and sharp on the tongue, with slightly sweet blueberry and banana flavors, light malts, and hints of yeast – somewhat grassy. This isn’t a big, serious beer and so maybe it’s not for everybody. Or, maybe it is for everybody – everybody looking for a light, refreshing summertime sipper that tastes great on the boat, patio, deck or ballpark.
