Wheat Monkey Ale captures the fresh, unfiltered spontaneity of our brewers’ creativity. Crisp and refreshing year-round, this American Wheat Ale pours a lazy, hazy golden color. Its large, white, foamy head can be attributed to the generous amount of malted white wheat added to the mash. The aroma is enhanced by our fruity house ale yeast and its fresh baked bread flavors are perfectly balanced with a Cascade hop addition.

This one poured hazy with the foamy head as advertised. Malt was definitely bread-like, balanced by a grass-floral combo of hops. An OK session brew. Nothing stuck out vs. the advertised fruity ale yeast.

I love lakefront but this is not their best effort. Very bland at best I will stick to other varieties ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bready on the nose, but not a whole lot going on in this one. The hops are there, but really don’t give this one much. Not my favorite offering from Lakefront.

Suttree (5879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2014
Cloudy orange, foamy white head. Smelled toasty and orange. Taste is toasty, wheaty, and orange, with some citrusy hops. Nothing special, but not bad either.

Nice and refreshing. A little sweeter than the other wheat from the same sesion. Nice aroma and aftertaste smooth.

Bottle from Ashur Liquor in a variety 8 pack. Created a thin soapy layer of foamed head while the liquid was a clear and golden piss color. As for the aroma, there is only a hint of wheat and some cheap ass yeast which alerts me that this beer is going to really suck. I guessed correctly, since the flavor is plain and only has a minimum taste of grassy hops and cheap grained barley that just doesn’t make the grade. The bottle label and logo were cool though.

Pours a hazy, medium straw color. Small white head. Aroma finds light wheat, plenty of grain/dough, honey. Flavor much the same, but a bit sweeter, more citrusy notes. Light, crisp, creamy, and refreshing. Mild dryness. A good backyard beer.

Wheaty, citrus, maybe a little barnyard, basement. Taste is light, wheat, some citrus. Alright for a wheat beer, a little disappointing. Something you could drink all day and boy think much of.

Not bad for a light beer. I’ve had better wheats, but I’ve had worse, as well. I might buy again.

Dacrza (784) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2014
DATE TASTED: January 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: finishing Clash of Kings, I believe... APPEARANCE: hazy, bubbly, thin-headed sallow gold body; nondescript otherwise; no lacing... AROMA: somewhat pungent, lemon dish detergent scent; some lager malts provide a backbone; slightest banana and apple... PALATE: medium-bodied slightly effervescent; almost sudsy in its aftertaste--fizzy...TASTE: such subtle flavors--lightly lemon; predominantly metallic ping akin to a pilsner; lacking a refreshing, clean drag--just dragging... OVERALL: I understand the attempt is a wheat ale, but Wheat Monkey straddles the styles without pulling the better elements of either into my mouth; instead, it’s more like monkeying around, making use of a playful label and silly enough name to attract attention--by far the weakest of what was a successful mix pack...
