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.

bhensonb (10699) - 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.

Flavor is light malt, heavy Belgian yeast fruity esters, moderate orange, light coriander, faint hops and bitterness with a thin, dry and spicy finish. Light body, no warmth, medium-low carbonation.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Draft at McNellie’s in downtown Tulsa. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small, fizzy white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon citrus, pale and bready malts, and straw. Flavor doesn’t add a whole lot to that, just a little yeast and vegetal notes. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts wheaty and ends a bit metallic and finally dry. Sessionable, if not memorable, wheat ale.
