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.

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.

bubbleflubber (1854) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Clear straw-gold pour, with no retentive head nor lace of which to speak. Barnyard and grains to the nose. Light grain flavors with a hint of barnyard countryside accents, finishing with a light dry bitter. Not super complex, but for an American Wheat, certainly not terrible. Goes down very well in the dog days of summertime, with a quenching palate and light texture/body. Active carbonation keeps the mouthfeel zesty and drinkable.

Bottle pours a cloudy dark gold with a very thin off white head. The scent is pilsner like? Taste is unlike other wheats I have had. Earthy malt flavor, light bitter and dry with almost no fruit sweetness, not bad just not what I expected.

This is the hardest kind of beer to rate. Itís just an American wheat. No hops, little complexity, no flaws. Drinkable.

This beer reminds me of steel reserve without the punch. Its not horrible. But if iím spending good money on beer, who wants steel reserve? Plus no 6% kick. Very strong grain alchol flavor. Skip it... the description on the bottle sounds good... but well its just not.

12 oz bottle (organic version) picked up at the brewclub meet. Hazy pale yellow beer with a medium white head. Aroma is light citrus, yeast and wheat. Wheaty flavor with a sharp tang from the rye and hibiscus, and some citric hop bitterness. Not bad for an American wheat ale, but I much prefer German Hefeís and this just doesnít reach that level. Would be a decent summer cooler if it were summer.

Bottle. Just an ok tasting beer. Nice balance but also rather bland. SInce it is a summer beer if this were really cold on a hot day, it would go down great but somewhat average otherwise. Does have that wheat, bread aroma, again not overpowering. Donít really get the hibiscus like in the description.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2009
12 oz bottle pours a clear yellow with a thin hazy white head. Citrus lemon touch of wheat in the nose. Not grassy or grainy light and decent. Clean citrus wheat flavors that have a citrus bitterness in the finish that is a touch grassy. Goes down easy though. This might be decent fresh, then again that citrus might be more overbearing for this beer.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Chapel Hill, NC. Pours a pale hazy yellow color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is spicy, peppery bread with a bit of caramel. A bit of tea and floral notes as well. Taste is bread, yeast, pepper, citrus, particularly lime, caramel. Thin-medium bodied.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear bright golden with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and pale malts supporting toasty overripe bananas, tart wheat, and some floral character.. fairly well presented. The flavor was quite tangy throughout with a combination of wheat, lemon, and bitter floral character present.. honey and sourdough bread at the core.. finished a touch sour and refreshing. Light-bodied and tart as mentioned on the palate.. I found this to be tasty and refreshing.
