Kennebunkport Brewing Company Wheat Beer Review

Kennebunkport Brewing Company Wheat Beer is a beer I picked up at Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's allows you to make your own six pack by selecting individual beers out of their stocked six pack packages and making your own combination. Not knowing anything about Kennebunkport Brewing Company (associated with Federal Jack's Brewpub), I was pleased to see a freshness date printed on the bottle and I selected a bottle of their wheat beer to give it a try. The beer poured clear, without any of the cloudiness one would typically see in a wheat beer. The first thing I noticed was the smell, which was harsh and acrid. It smelled like vinegar mixed with industrial solvents. The beer was overly carbonated, and there was no wheat taste that I could detect. The beer was thin, a bit bitter, and without any appealing flavor or redeeming attributes. I could not finish it.
