COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Today’s forecast...Windy! A Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with honey and spices, a great beer for quenching the thirst of Chicago. Windy City Wheat swirls in the mouth with a pleasant sweetness and a zesty, orange-citrusy fruitness settling nicely into the honey tones.

Chi-Town Windy City Wheat "90 Points" & Gold Medal from the World Beer Championships (Wit Category)

1/11/13. 12oz bottle from Binny’s in Bolingbrook. Cloudy light golden pour with a small off-white head that fades. Very light citrus and soft wheat in the aroma. Light citrus and spice in the flavor with a touch of wheat, bland hoppiness, and a sort of vomity/acid aspect. Meh.

Cloudy, light gold appearance. Orange peel,though the other Belgian additions aren’t apparent. This is really an American wheat through and through. Picked it up while visiting Chicago with Dave in 2012.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy yellow with small white head that doesn’t last long. Smells like a Belgian White should. Aroma has lemon, grass, honey, and light spices (coriander?). Body is light to medium, with very little carbonation. Tastes sweet but mouthfeel is flat. Not bad, but I won’t seek this again. Stevens Point brews some better ones under their own name for less $

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of wheat, spices and some clove. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Wheat, clove and baking spices with a little herbal hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation but a very short finish. Overall, not bad. I’ll drink it, but i wont seek it out.
