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.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
650 ml wax top bottle courtesy of Soonah. Pours a murky copper color with a small white head. The aroma is light with sweet malts and dust. The flavor starts subtle with mild wheat and some earthy spices then builds to a bubblegum and cotton candy sweetness. The finish is short with lingering honey sweetened biscuit. The mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation. Overall: A bit too sweet for me but still a very session-able ale. Thanks Oklahoma.

Hbuck72 (177) - Chickasha, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Nice colden color, bubbly off-white head. A little disapointing on the flavor, I had a hard time picking out any wheat or spices coming through, tasted more like a pilsner than a wheat beer to me. Kind of dissapointing because it is made in Tulsa, OK and I live in Oklahoma City, and was hoping to find a good locally brewed beer.
