Appearance: hazy, golden yellow
Aroma: strong aroma ofcoriander and orange
Mouth feel: on the sweeter side of wheat beers
Taste: orange-y, sweet, cracker-y wheat
Finish: light on the palate, quenching
There's a definite orange streak throughout this beer, with a strong wheat backbone flooding the mouth, and hints of sweet spice add complexity to the palate. The mouthfeel is chewy but spritzy, and the finish is completely clean and dry with a subtle orange essence flavor. An excellent and refreshing choice for summer sipping. #18 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 25 Beers of 2011
|Since we introduced UFO White in 2009, our brewers have hand-ground the spices used in this beer to make sure they were the proper consistency. That’s dedication! All that hard work seems to be worth it – UFO White is our fastest growing beer style.
|We started the Harpoon Brewery in 1986 because—like today—we loved beer and wanted more quality choices.
There was only one problem: we were beer lovers, not brewers. We knew what we wanted to drink, but we needed some help actually brewing it. So we enlisted our first brewer, took over some warehouse space on the Boston waterfront, and began introducing fresh, local craft beer to Boston drinkers. We tried to do it in a way that captured the spirit of fun that had brought us to beer in the first place. From that warehouse, surrounded by fish companies on the docks of South Boston (neighboring what is now the Seaport District), we couldn’t imagine that craft brewing would become what it has today.
We still remember our days on the other side of the bar, and have spent as much time spreading the joy of beer drinking as we have focusing on recipes, ingredients, and brewing equipment. Hopefully our sense of gratitude is reflected in both the quality of the beer and the spirit of fun and enjoyment surrounding our beer and breweries.
