Tofino Brewing Co. - Focust Wheat reviewTofino Brewing Co. – Fogust Wheat Ale Review

The Tofino Brewing Company has brewed up an all natural, unfiltered wheat ale called the Fogust Wheat. This ale is a mild 4.5% alcohol and pours from the 650ml bottle as a lightly clouded golden colour topped with three fingers of billowing head. From this Wheat Ale comes a crisp and citrus-wheat aroma along with a touch of clove and Banana. Once smelling this beer is becomes rather clear that the Fogust is no ordinary Wheat Ale but actually a Hefeweizen. The body has a big carbonation factor and the flavour is light with building banana wheat tones. As the flavour progresses the clove and a citrus-sweetness emerge making for a refreshing and delicious beer. While a Hefeweizen can be rather heavy, at only 4.5% this beer remains light and easy drinking for a beautiful Tofino day!
