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)

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 I was expecting more from this beer. Still pleasant to drink, but nothing to get excited over.

Nothing too special here. Chose this over a blue moon. Looks better than it is, but I didnt expec too much more out of it. The flavor needs to be amplified a few degrees and then for me it would be a pretty good wheat.

pale gold with small head. if budweiser made a wit, this is what i think it would taste like. minimal spice and light wheat. bland, yet inoffensive.

12oz bottle. Hazy yellow-tan. Thin, oily head. Has a little orange zest in the aroma, but still firmly grounded in Stevens Point sugary mediocrity. Medium bodied, the yeast tones balance it out a little, making it into a tolerable beverage. Kind of tastes more like a Hefeweizen than a Belgian Wit. Not so bad.

Hazy lemon pour with a likewise aroma taste is smooth and true to the style with a nice finish overall a good Belgian style wheat beer to drink on a warm day.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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.
