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.

"i agree this would be a good summer quencher (but it’s currently 39 degrees outside). smells of lemon predominantly...a little wheat, a little yeast, and a touch of hops. cloudy dark yellow w/little head. soft, decent body and a thirst quenching mix of citrus and wheat in the flavor. came in trade w/bluesandbarbq...saving the really good stuff for last, though :)"

bottle. pours hazy golden, with thin white head. Aroma has a good nose of wheat with light yeast as well as some hops and citrus aroma. Taste, I enjoyed this one a lot with a good mix of the wheat and light mouthfeel of caramel malts in the finish. Light yeasty palate with some citrus hops. Light, very enjoyable.

12 oz bottle thanks to Ethan. Pours a very bright orange color with a medium white head. A refreshing aroma of oranges, spices, lots of malt. The flavor is also nice; lemons and oranges, earthy malt, the rye is noticeable and nice. Some Sulfur like notes. Overall, quite nice and easygoing.

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.

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.
