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.

Pretty decent wheat. Had this last night while playing some Mario Kart with Snee and Eric. Good enough to pick up a sixer next summer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Pours a transparent bright pale golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet malted wheat and a hint of lemony citrus. Body starts with decent fullness and wheaty sweetness with some grainy husky character and earthy bittering hops before a cleaner, smooth bittersweet finish. A decent American-style wheat beer.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2008
12 oz. bottle from OldGrowth, thanks Tom. no floaties, but the pour is a very cloudy pale yellow with a very short-lived white head, almost no lacing. floral, spicy aroma of clove, flowers and just a hint of banana. nothing spectacular going on with the flavor, yet this is very drinkable. a light & refreshing wheat.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Appearance: Hazy, yellow body with a full inch of creamy, white head. Scattered lacing on the way down. Smell: Malted wheat nose with light notes of flowers, sweetened lemon, and spice. Taste: Sweetish, tangy malted wheat with a very light touch of honey. Gentle trace of citrus. Floral, spicy hops with a restrained bitterness. Begins to develop a slight graininess. Finishes quite crisp. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: A fine, crisp, easy drinking wheat ale if that’s the thing you’re looking for.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2008
small fizzy white (quickly and almost fully dissapating) head into murky orange body with some lacing present. aromas of light grass, some citrus and some spices. flavor is initially bittersweet but finishes more bitter decently long finish duration. above average carbonation. watery texture. okay wheat.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of bmartin08. Pours a Hefe hazy yellow with one finger head. Nose is light citrus, wheat and yeast. Taste is lemon zest, yeast bread and sweet wheat. Lighter mouth feel. Not a huge fan of wheat beers, but this was refreshing after a hot night walking the dog in the AZ heat. Thanks Brian!

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2008
12oz bottle. Hazy straw orange color. Lightly musty wheat aroma. Flavor has light wheat with some grass and spice like hops. Not anything that particularly stands out in this one. Medium body, carbonation and mouth feel seem ok for the style. Boring really.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008
12oz bottle, courtesy of TURDFERGUSON, thanks Sam. Poured a cloudy dark yellow, nice white head. Nice lemon zest aroma, very nice. Nice citrus flavor, very smooth, not bad.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle from the obama loving Ross. Pours a hazy golden amber with a weak dissipating white head. Aroma of wheat malt and fruity esters. Light bodied with a prickly carbonation. Flavor of pale wheat malts and clove, with little sweetness to balance it out. Finish is astringent and moderately bitter, with some faint yeastiness.
