COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An invigorating wheat beer with a hint of rye and the tang and hue of hibiscus, this refreshing brew is as cool as the breeze that blows down from Mount Mitchell to Cattail Peak. Enjoy this delicious creation when the hottest summer day demands the best of the Blue Ridge.

Also known as Organic Cattail Peak Wheat Beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, very simple. Sweet citrus flavor, refreshing. Very thin body, very little carbonation. Very abrupt finish, little hop flavor (little overall flavor). Good summer session beer but not much to this one.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2011
From bottle. Mild wheat to the nose, with some lemony citrus zest bitterness and a bit of spicy character. Mild butter. Cloudy medium-dark amber with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts pretty dry and mildly chalky, with some wheat character, big bitterness throughout and a tiny amount of cooked corn or butter-like taste. Carbonic acidity and dry citrus zest bitter after.

Pours cloudy yellow. Light aroma of lemon & bread malt. Not a lot of wheat. Palate is thin & flat with no finish. Got this at the tasting room & was immediately dissappointed.

Draught at Tupelo Honey, Asheville. Fairly bland wheat. Not much going on in terms of typical flavors or body. Basic.

12 oz bottle. pours a deep golden with light sediment and a slim white head. the aroma is a bit off for the style... smells like a pilsner and slightly skunky with some lemon peel and light bread notes. light to medium body with bread notes, light light fruit and a touch of yeast. slightly rounder finish with a stronger sense of body and a bump in flavor. disappointing.

Light gold, sluggish head-- why are these American Wheat Ales always so damn undercarbonated? Aroma picks things up, though, with a yeasty center backed by a floral note. The taste starts yeasty and slightly sour, but quickly changes to dry and spicy with a oddly tangy fade. Nothing is unpleasant , but the flavors all seem too fleeting to nail down. Mouthfeel is decent but slack. Okay, but not doing anything to grow my appreciation of the style. (4/24/09)

Received this in the under 100 BIF. I poured it into a Sam Adams pint glass. It produced a finger worth of white head that went away to nothing the body of the brew was a hazy yellow in color. The brew smelled sweet and lemony with a light grassy note. The flavor was light and bready with a touch of citrus fruit to it. The brew had good carbonation and was light in the mouth. I could drink a few of these, not a bad summer brew at all. If it was closer I would have loved a six pack of these to see how a few in a row might change things

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Captain Easy’s Gourmet.
Aroma: There is a wet, grassy note, but otherwise the nose seems to be rather muted.
Appearance: It pours a deep gold color with the yeast seemingly held in suspension in little pieces. There was a small, foamy, white head, but it is gone before I can blink. Rather odd.
Taste: There is a light honey note up front, followed by a slight grain, florals, and a very light bitterness. Perhaps a touch of spicy wheat as well. The bitterness seems rather aggressive for a wheat, but it’s not bad. It reminds me of a pils in an odd way.
Palate: Light to medium body with lower than average carbonation leading to a dry but long and bitter finish.
Overall: A slightly different take on a wheat brew. I have to say, it isn’t half bad. Give one a try for yourself.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is mostly wheat with a papery aroma as well. Flavor is light wheat and dry malt. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent beer.
