Caramelized malt flavor, not much else. Nutty finish. An odd wheat to be sure.

The beer pours to an amber bronze colored body with a white head. The aroma is caramelized wheat. The flavor didn’t come off as wheaty, however. More caramelly, cereal, and bready than like most wheats. The palate is oddly creamy for a wheat beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent copper with white rungs. Some very light wafts of wheat, but this aroma is pretty muted. Flavor is acidic and astringent, sluicing at the corners of the tongue. Highly citric like lemon juice marinade and a dinner roll off to the side that got caught up in the commotion. Some detectible rye and heavier that usual hopping.

Amber color. Its a dark wheat flavor. Sweet spicy cereal... not like most other wheat beers I’ve had.

Ok, so this beer was late in the night, thus I really don’t remember a lot about it other then it was good.

Golden body with medium off-white head. Aroma is light wheat, lightly sweet. Taste is mild sweet up front, turns decent bitter (herbal). Some spicy too. Light/medium body.

This was a darker orange color than you would expect in a wheat. Both bitter and sweet, but without the strong citrus flavor that you usually find in this style. A nice surprise.

hmm, maybe my batch was kind off, but i didn't think much of this brew at all. in fact, i thought it was the blandest of the batch i had in the sampler. maybe the keg was old?

different than most wheats, this one is not something that would benefit with citrus addition. Much darker than most wheats I’ve seen. Cloudy copper brew with a THICK off white, lumpy head. Lots of malt, of course. Caramel and more caramel. So Smooth and creamy, but cleans off the palate so well. This is a problem because the beer’s tendency to disappear is increased multifold times. A wheat lager, pretty cool, yet it was unfamiliar territory. Not your usual citrucy, clovey wheat, but a distinctively different and unique cretion. Oh yeah, and it’s really good too!

Very tangy and highly carbonated, very lemony. Nice long finish, one of the better brews from the Rowlands.
