Breckenridge Ophelia Hoppy Wheat Review

Ophelia Hoppy Wheat
Breckenridge Brewery
Denver, CO
ABV: 5.0%

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability:&#160 6
Wan’t quite the cakewalk I was expecting, but chuggable nonetheless. Normally I would blame the extra difficulty in the infusion of hops, but to be honest I’m not sure what it was. It just seemed like the pint got a little bit bigger right in the middle. Either way, I was victorious and that’s the key.

How Much:&#160 4
I bought this as a single, which I was pretty happy about, but my local liquor store sells this in a sixer for just $8.49. This would be a great price if I was into it, but I wasn’t. I suppose even if it was $3.99 I wouldn’t get too terribly excited about it. If you like wheat beers, though, and are looking for a twist on the style, you chould certainly try this without breaking the bank.

Uhhh…Taste:&#160 4
My face may have been a bit harsh on this, but I simply wasn’t a fan. Now, I’ll fully admit that I don’t particularly like wheat beers in general, but I’m always intrigued when they try to hop them up. I think the Boulevard one, though I haven’t officially reviewed it, is a fantastic example of this style. Ophelia, however, just kind of felt disjointed and messy. Like the flavors weren’t compatible or something. I don’t know, maybe I’ll give it another shot in the summer but for now I’m all set.

Gettability:&#160 5
Breckenridge Brewing distributes to 33 states and Ophelia Hoppy Wheat is their new spring seasonal.
