COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American wheat beer with a Belgian inspiration, Sundown Wheat aims to blend the best of two worlds. This refreshingly light beer is brewed with American wheat, two-row barley, and a touch of flaked oats. It is delicately hopped with American Sterling hops and spiced in the tradition of Belgian wit beers, using coriander and dried sweet orange peel.

12 oz single purchased while in the Tulsa area. This pours a murky yellow color with a fizzy short-lived head. I must say, not the most attractive looking brew. The aroma has a mix of wheat, lemon, and herbs. Refreshing and light going down with flavors mirroring the aroma; a lemon zing with a soft herbal character and wheat. It is limited and a bit thin but itís a decent warm weather session beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma of grain and citrus. Taste is wheat, lemons, and spices. Nothing special, but decent.

Another average wheat ale - earthy aroma, typical lemon flavor profile, and a bit of spice at the end (coriander/orange) to give it slightly something extra. Okay.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with white head. Wheat, lemon, straw, yeast aromas. Lemon, spicy, wheat flavors. A lot of spice, I didnít think it melded right with the wheat style.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2012
On tap at the Flying Saucer†in Little Rock, AR. Pours a lightly hazed, straw yellow-orange colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is grainy and crackery wheats with a touch of sweetness and a light citrus note. Flavor is simple, but better. Crisp, grainy wheats with a light citrus note. Subtle coriander spice with a touch of orange zest before this finishes clean with a very light hopping. Short aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but an easy drinking, clean wheat. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 On tap in a shaker. Pours a pale golden, quite hazy with minimal head. Spicy lemon nose with coriander. Taste is lots of subtle spices, lemon peel. Palate is fizzy and crisp. Overall a pleasant, standard wheat.

Aroma is pretty standard for a wheat though nothing really stands out about it. The appearance is cloudy with no head and very minimal lacing. The taste is clean & crisp but I have to admit that this is one of my least favorite styles of beer. Itís medium bodied but no strong presence of any particular flavor. I respect it for what it is but just not my cup of tea.
