Wild Goose introduces spring seasonal wheat ale.

The latest seasonal brew from the Wild Goose brewery of Cambridge, MD is Wild Goose Spring Wheat Ale. According to the brewery, the brew will be "another world-class, English-style ale from the Chesapeake's own award-winning microbrewery."

The brewery reports that Wild Goose Spring Wheat Ale will include proportions of malted wheat, together with two-row crystal and pale barley, Saaz and Hallertau hops and Ringwood Ale yeast. The intent, according to Wild Goose president Jim Lutz, is to produce a beer that balances a sweet, fruity body with a long spicy hop finish. "This is a style of brewing that may be new to many microbrew fans," Lutz said, "but wheat beers are so tasty and refreshing that we were eager to add one in our Wild Goose style."

In addition to introducing its second seasonal brand (the first was the brewery's Snow Goose Winter Ale) Wild Goose brewing Co. also recently celebrated its 500th brew.

Since its start-up in October 1989, Lutz reports that Wild Goose has expanded its market far beyond Maryland. The micro now sells beer as far north as Albany, NY, and as far west as Denver. "We're still a mid-Atlantic brewery," he said, "but it's nice to know that the quality of our beers is appreciated and that demand in new markets is growing fast."

Lutz reports that the new seasonal wheat ale will be followed by other Wild Goose seasonal brews. "We want to try new styles and celebrate the art of brewing," he said. "Wild Goose Porter will be brewed in September and Wild Goose will continue to offer the finest styles of brewing in the world--pale ales, brown ales, best bitters, maybe a barley win or stout."
