Saucony Creek Roxie’s Golden Banana Wheat


Saucony Creek Roxie’s Golden Banana WheatSaucony Creek Brewing Company is a forward-thinking craft brewery proudly fashioning hyper-local beers from farm to pint in an effort to keep glass-clinking camaraderie alive and well. It was a professional X Games and action sports career that sent a younger version of Saucony Creek Brewing Company’s Founder Matt Lindenmuth hopping from country to country where artful inspiration, diverse cultures and unique individuals prevailed around every corner. He soaked it all up and particularly felt fascination for craft beer in Belgium. Fast forward through US Snowboard Team training, Guinness World Records, NBC’s Gravity Games and a collection of injuries, it was time to leave behind one crafty career and begin another one. With some new found free time, Matt took his long standing hobby of home brewing to the next level, and began the formal process of launching Saucony Creek Brewing Company. Saucony Creek Brewing Company’s summer seasonal release is a banana wheat beer by the name of Roxie’s Golden.

The beer pours an incredibly hazy lemon yellow color. The one finger fluffy white head dissipates rather quickly. Once gone it leaves behind a foamy ring around the perimeter of the glass but no lacing to speak of.

The aromas of yeast and bread hit first and linger throughout the bouquet. Fruity esters and a slight sourness are also notable. Over ripened aromas of banana are evident and when added to the bready notes are reminiscent of a banana muffin.

On the palate yeasty bready notes hit first with just a hint of banana. There is a slight sourness that echoes the bouquet but is balanced by sweeter malt notes. On the mid-palate there is a hint of white pepper that is almost immediately washed away by the continuation of the yeasty bready notes. On the finish the banana is really showcased.

A great summer offering from Saucony Creek Brewing. Balanced and quite quaffable. Try pairing this with Havarti, garden salad with grilled chicken or banana pudding pie. 3 out of 5 Pints
