Longwood Brewing - The One That Got Away Red Wheat Ale Review

Longwood Brewing Co. – The One That Got Away Red Wheat Ale Review

The One That Got Away is a unique Red Wheat Ale from Nanaimo’s Longwood Brewery. This opaque, copper coloured ale is topped with one finger of head that leaves a thin layer of lacing on the glass. Through this lightly headed ale comes notes of caramel, mild hops and toasted malts in a wheat-thick package. The Wheat tones are masked by the crystal malts and caramel sweetness but add a softness to the aroma. The taste is unique. The crystal malts come in early building into a wheat and malted mid section. The toasted, caramel sweetness builds as well closer to the back with a light hop bitterness along side. The finish is fairly sweet with the caramel and wheat tones lingering. For a wheat beer this is surprisingly complex and delicious. There are some great wheat tones that come through with everything we love about a quality red ale. This truly is the best of both world making for a diverse, unique and delicious beer.
