I transferred the Gowanus Strong Wheat Ale to secondary a couple weeks ago and stole a taste while doing it.

Tasting a beer like this at such an early stage obviously won’t tell you much about how it will taste six months down the line, but it is still fun to do because you get can get some broad outlines of how the beer will turn out.  For example, I could really taste the honey here, unlike in the Gowanus Strength German Wheat.  The color was caramel-ly, although it’s hard to tell in this photo, and looked similar to the Smuttynose Wheat Wine Ale.

I will be bottling soon and I’m already looking forward to another taste test!
