In honour of my über talented hubby and his newfound passion for restoring vintage audio equipment tonight I am trying out Stereovision an American Kristall Wheat beer from Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery based out of Barrie, Ontario.

First up I have to say a few words on the very cool label on this bottle; psychedelic colour scheme, trippy metallic font and a big eyeball staring back at ya from the bottle all tying perfectly into the beer name and the brewery ethos ‘Bee Beer Differently’.

Stereovision pours a bright gold colour with tons of white head and tons of carbonation. It is all wheat beer on the nose with the requisite banana and clove but when you take a few sips you realize this is not your standard wheat beer. The flavour is more pale ale with malt at the front and a slightly bitter finish but you do still get some wheat beer qualities; a nice depth, medium body and some spices. I like that the inclusion of elements of a ‘North American late-hopped beer’ (as described on the label) separates this beer from your standard wheat beer.

Overall a great way to cap off a night at the fair and a much better option than the Molson or Coors on tap in the beer garden!
