Yearning for summer, you say? If Blacklist had a vote, it would be year round with their Imperial Hefe with Grapefruit Zest (they say so themselves). Get your corkscrew for this one, per warning on the bottle, as Blacklist doesn’t joke around with the cork and seal. Also recommended is a weizen glass for maximizing your experience. A slow pour gives the orange to hazy golden body a billowy head. The lead aroma on the nose is banana, but you will get some softer citrus and bubblegum. After a few sips, the initial sweetness gives way to spicy notes then to the grapefruit at the finish. So grab a glass and dream of clear roads to the beach, a warm inviting sun, and remember summer is always around the corner.

Haskell’s has been local family owned and operated since 1934. Our White Bear Lake Store offers the finest selections of wines, spirits, and beer available. Unique to our location amongst the Haskell’s stores is one of the broadest craft beer selections in the Twin Cities. From the obscure and esoteric, to mead and artisan ciders, we strive to be your destination craft store. Product aside, we have three genuine beer geeks (each with their own cellar) who are more than happy to help out the novice and beginners or debate the tasting notes (and benefits!) of a dry-hopped brew. Consider this your formal invite to stop by!
