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.

enjoyed this quite a hot in the sunny Houston afternoon .. . hazy dark yellow.. . some nice spices in this one, and a good example of the style.. well liked around the patio table .. Listerine hurts, man, when I put Listerine in my mouth, Iím fuckiní angry. Germs do not go quietly.

[Bottle] Pours a hazy golden color with plenty of foamy white head. Aroma of grains, sweet malts and light grass. The taste is better than the aroma, and includes some nutmeg, lemongrass, cereal grains and fruity esters. Sweet finish. I was disappointed by the watery mouthfeel of this beer, although the flavor profile was not bad overall.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours a slightly hazy orange/gold with a really frothy white head. Aroma is most citrus with a hint of spice. About medium body and the carbonation is really frothy. The flavor is mostly fruit, some citrus, matched by wheat. The finish is a little unzesty orange peel and some wheat leftover. Pretty spiffy drink, but the finish is not quite there. Damn drinkable though.

Cool label and wax dipped top hell yeah motherfuckers. Oranges, spices, and what on the nose. Like a mixture between wit and wheat beers. Golden orange pour, no head. Wheat, orange, coconut, sun tan lotion, spice, corriander in the flavors. Rather flavorful and interesting really. Nice wheaty finish, but the body was too thin and watery to make this one extremely nice IMO. Still nice and enjoyable.

This was a very appealing clear golden color with a light orange hue to it. Very nice for an americanized wheat beer. The color of an autumn sunset in a glass. It had a minimal head and almost no lacing. Light sweet malts mingle with earthy hoppiness. There are cirus and floral scents peeking through. Iím sure that these would be more pronounced at a warmer temp. Bright citrus flavors hit first. Orange and lemon dominating. Mixed in with a bit of sweet malt flavor and some light hops for just a tiny bite of bitterness. Itís a nice balance. In the mouth it is light and crisp. Nice and very refreshing. Mild carbonation. This is very easy to drink and will make a great summer quencher. I plan to drink many of these in the future.

Bottle From WesKbob thanks buddy. Red wax. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a fizzy white head which seems to leave quickly. The lacing is decent. The aroma is of lemon and wheat. Has a decent cabonation. The flavor is okay but has a touch of metalic to it. It is a fairly refreshing beer. Lacks some depth but it is drinkable. Has a touch dry texture. An okay finish and a weaker aftertaste. Fun picnic beer.

On tap at McNellies. Worst of the Oklahoma sampler, promising aroma and appearance, but vegetal flavor just ruined it.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2010 On tap. Pour is a typical cloudy orange yellow. Aroma is lacking, with only minor hints of wheat and lemon. Flavor is quite good though, with a great balance of wheat, malt, and citrus. Very refreshing in flavor, bland in aroma.

Bright hazy golden coloured body with a dense white head. Aroma of hay, grass, wheat, yeast and a little bit of coriander seed - nice aroma. Medium-bodied; Mild grassy and wheatie flavoured beer with some cardboard and mild tastes coupled with some light sweetness. Overall, a mild beer with not much flavour and a little odd taste near the end. Regardless, good to try as it looks like a new beer! I sampled this 65 cL wax-topped bottle purchased from Freemanís Liquor in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on 05-May-2009, sampled at home in Washington on 23-May-2009.
