Danielle “Trashcan” Meinhardt and Derek “Bearcat” Britton brew and drink this, their signature ale, when not solving crimes or working at NB World HQ. Is it an over-bittered American wheat beer, or is it an American pale ale with too much wheat in the grist? Who cares, it's awesome. Straw gold in color with a rich white cap of long-lasting foam, the nose is a big snort of Pacific Northwest hops in front of a subtle buttered-pastry sweetness from a small percentage of pale caramel malt. A high ratio of wheat malt brings bread dough overtones to the clean, firm, almost IPA-like bitterness. Blonde enough for the summer, burly enough for the winter – just like Minnesotans.

Reading the components of this Wheaten Beatdown struck my interest as a great mix to add calamondin - you think it will work? A bit of zest at very end of boil and puree the actual fruit for secondary, you think? Thanks!Best Answer: I just done this brew about 2 months ago put wild cherries in it five pounds took 2 months but turned out fantastic this is a great beer for fruit I put mine in the primary 4 days after pitching I think that's what you should do primary 18 days 3 weeks secondary I repitched before bottling that's my choice strong bottling yeast is a must after siting 5 to 6 weeks in carboy good luck steve sanitation and puree
