Pachyderm Pale Wheat is an American pale wheat.The aroma is clean and hoppy with hints of citrus.The taste is pleasantly hoppy and smooth. We all know that elephants never forget. So when the Birmingham Zoo acquired six new baby elephants (part of the Pachyderm mammal family) we knew that our beloved Miss Fancy would have wanted us to help take care of them. So each and every time you enjoy a pint of our delicious Pachyderm Pale Wheat, we’ll donate 3% of the profits to help the Birmingham Zoo care for their elephant herd. Trunks Up to that!

Really amazingly bad…like how did it leave the brewery. Thanks drowland for the share…I guess. Hazy gold. Aroma was floral hoppy, not too bad. But the taste was horrible. Hose water with indistinct minerally taste. Gross.

1/28/15. 12oz can from Smokin Joes (or something like that) in Jacksonville, AL. Hazy golden orange pour with a big khaki head that sticks and laces like crazy - looks good. Decent aroma, a citrus zest pop, some soft wheat and maltiness, but there’s an undeniable off-ness... tinny water, worty aromas. Oh man, the flavor is borderline disgusting. Perhaps this is an old can, but no dating that I can find. A vague maltiness, earthy, huge off worty flavor, like a gross European lager, lingers a bit tart like lemon peel followed by pennies and that gross worty aspect. Really mad I have 5 more of these.

Can: Hasy orange ale with a small white head of foam. The aroma is dough/wheet and fruit. Moderate hop taste with a little bitterness.

Draft. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of raw bread dough, ripe fruit. Taste starts sweet and malty, then fruit, then bready. Interesting.

Vestlake (146) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap at brewery. Pours a cloudy golden color. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Taste is fruity with a little more hoppiness than I was expecting. Enjoyed it, definitely worth a try.

ChainGangGuy (4474) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Appearance: A bit cloudy, light golden-orange body in hue with a slim, white head.

Smell: A bready, sugar-edged maltiness with amiable citrus notes of sweet, mild lemon and grapefruit.

Taste: PPW has a nice, characterful maltiness with a vibrant breadiness having itself a toasted sugar element to it. A small pop of citrus that settles down. Low bitterness. A little last-minute sweetness and snap of citrus and carbonation on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While most pale wheat ales fall into a line of vapid, lacking offerings, this one breaks the mold with a surprisingly rich maltiness. Nice beer!
