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.

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.

12 oz bottle from Binnys (Naperville, IL). Split with the missus. Pours a stark yellow hue, gentle haze with touches of orange in the body, glow, some frothy white head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are straw and dough, flaked wheat, kiss of estery fruit, gentle coriander and touches of orange oils. Mellow, more grainy malt character, a touch stale, some fruit. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some apple, pear, kiss of banana and citrus meet bready and grainy malts, straw, gentle coriander. Some orange rind/oils with gentle spice, yeast, more coriander. Apples, bread,a touch papery. A bit underbodied, backend offers some spice and apples, some cidery elements, coriander, oranges, flaked wheat, paper. Nose is a bit odd, a bit underbodied and an odd cidery feel at times. Meh.

Patrickctenchi (6105) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours cloudy, lemonade/gold with a tall white head. Scent is wheat, spice, citrus... Taste is sweet but sharp lemon/orange. Wheat. Slightly tart to sour as it goes. Ok...but a little too little of everything.

Refreshing with a good taste but a little mild and could use a little more flavor. Would probably have again.
