COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, refreshing American style Hefeweizen that is brewed with the best ingredients the Northwest has to offer. We use 50% locally sourced two-row pale malt and 50% locally grown northwest malted wheat well above the required 30% wheat additions to be called a wheat beer. This Northwest style Hefeweizen is unfiltered for a "cloudy" appearance and brewed with plenty of Yakima valley hops yielding a wonderful citrus finish, delicious with or without a lemon garnish.

Tap at Eureka.

Very light pour. Perfectly reasonable, thirst-quenching American wheat without flaws to speak of. Mild grain, dry enough, hints of lemon. Refreshing and nice.

Very light pour with very little head. Heavy wheat and grain flavor. Overall, a nice, light, refreshing beer.

Prufrockstar (1089) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft at College Inn. Pours very hazy gold color, some head. Aroma big on bread, yeast, toast. Taste is bread, hay, some pepper and lemon (to be fair, this was listed as "Lemon Serengeti Wheat," so may have been special), very little bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, very drinkable.

AmEricanbrew (5901) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Tap@M&J’s Seatac Airport. Cloudy golden color with lasting white head. Nice tart pale wheat, tart citrus, fruity estery aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Light pit fruit sweet flavors with grainy pale wheat, light toast, and mild vegetables----not bad.

Theydon_Bois (9695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at the Africa Lounge, SEATAC, 27/05/13. Hazed orange with a thin white head that clears to a film. Nose is wheat, citrus, pale malts, grass, cereals, light caramel. Taste comprises cereals, grain, citrus, malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy notes in the finish. A tad boring.

Im a bit suspicious of this one because it was noticeably hoppy and of the same hop profile as the african amber and poured from the same tap that usually pour the amber ale. Coincidence or not it was quite delicious. Light body, creamy, and refreshing. The hoppiness keeps it interesting, if it is legit.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2012
On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow with almost no head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Flavor is sweet and wheaty; pretty smooth. Decent but not spectacular.

after4ever (6237) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a murky medium amber with a densely fizzy white head and loose drippy lace. Big crisp brown bread wheat nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Beautiful nutty brown multi grain bread mid palate. Satisfying nutty finish. Sentimental favorite among wheats for me.

Down the hatch at the African Lounge is Sea Tac airport. Hazy yellow pour with a decent sized head. Malty aroma. Taste is kind of thin, with hints of banana, grass and wheat. One to drink when you don’t want to fill up on a big beer.
