COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American Wheat is an original example of this relatively new beer style. Light and refreshing, American-style wheat beers have gained popularity for their lively effervescence and easy drinking flavor. Wheat malt dominates the sensory attributes of this beer, with light hop additions to bring out a pleasant citrus aroma. This beer is intentionally left unfiltered and therefore cloudy, in order to preserve the complex flavor components of the beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow. Smells of lemon and wheat. Thin foam lacing. Taste of citus, light grains and refreshing. Enjoyed very much but not a complex wheat beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Taste is similar. Pretty average wheat beer.

Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Light yellow pour with a small white head. Pretty bland aroma and taste of mild wheat. Okay.

uh, thanks milkmandan. Pale yellow iwht no head. Diactyl. Just what I want in a wheat beer. Tastes like sweet corn. Relatively new style compared to what? The invention of beer?

Pours a slightly cloudy yellowish golden color with almost no head. Some carbonation bubbles. Smells of wheat. Tastes of wheat with maybe a lemon aftertaste. Not a very good beer.

12oz bottle from Johnís Grocery in Iowa City, IA. Pours a mostly clear, yellow, gold tinted body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is very lemony up front with some sourness and a bit of a papery grain. Crisper wheats along with a metallic yeastiness. Not a horrible aroma, but kind of weird. Flavor is worse. Band-aid up front with a wheaty lemon-zest. Papery and grainy pale malts with a bit of a metallic yeast. Finishes with a citrusy band-aid that lacks any hopping and leaves a lengthy aftertaste of band-aid. Thin, somewhat watery body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty bad wheat beer. I can tell there is some lemon-zest and yeasty spice alongside a decent wheat character, but there is a shit load of band-aid in this and it dominates every flavor. I really enjoyed some of the other Madhouse beers Iíve had, so I hope this was just a bad bottle. I will revisit when given the chance, but for now, this sucks.

Pours hazy yellow with light yeast notes. As I wheat beer the palate is muted on the yeast notes. A decent finish.

Very bready aroma but also something off about it, possibly metallic. Taste is a little metallic and notes of fruit, not very good.

Aroma: heavy clove and sour/boozy, some grass; Appearance: hazy yellow, almost no gold, thin, very bubbly (almost soapy) head on pour that quickly dissipates; Taste: tastes a lot like it smells, heavy clove and floral, some lemony sour as well, pretty darn good but nothing standout, Iíve had other brews that taste a lot like this one does, although I am failing to recall one right at the moment; Palate: mostly floral, good carbonation keeps the flavor in your nose, a good summer beer, Iíd imagine (even though its November right now); Overall: prefectly acceptable wheat ale, although nothing monumental about it, being that Iím from Iowa, Iím happy to enjoy this Iowan brew
