The Love Wheat Beer

Showdown at the OK Corral. Well, actually it was a showdown at my kid's preschool run by a local city government (so it was exactly the same). I never complained one time for a whole year, but since he moved on to the 3-year old group three weeks ago, his new teachers have been giving us shit for the smallest things, calling my wife with something that could be handled with a one sentence note at the end of the day, and just seemingly singling out our little boy.

So I took up my problem with the big boss yesterday morning. I got to act out some of their teacher tantrums in front of her. I mean, how can one teacher say there is a pattern of behavior after two days? I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I've mentioned this kid's problem before, and it's not learning or behavior related. But that didn't stop me from making a very broad analogy of why he should get as much attention solving this problem as a kid that can't learn the alphabet or a kid that slurs his speech. I didn't win, but everyone's frustration was noted, and noted again. Maybe if I'd have shaved in the week before I walked in there I'd have won, but that's up for debate. For now, it's a draw. OK, I wont spare you, please son, shit in the toilet!

Today I am drinking The Love Wheat Beer brewed by Starr Hill Brewery in Crozet, Virginia. Not really sure how it got its name, but there is a star (the brewery?) and a heart (the love?) overlapping each other and inside a circle on the label. The label also says "The Gift of Great Beer" which is exactly what I'm looking for in my first beer from this brewery.

Twist off cap--as I've mentioned before, not a ding, just an observation. The aroma is very faint with a light citrus lemon and hint of banana. Flavors are also extremely subtle. You will taste wheat and some fruity orange and lemon flavors to start. In the background, there are also some hops and some cloves. It's not that there is no flavor, but everything is just very weak. Except the carbonation, which is medium. It is a refreshing beer, but that's not enough for me to say I'd drink this one again.
