COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napa Smith Wheat beer has a light and clean taste that is characteristic of this type of style. We have added special ingredients to accentuate the aromas beyond the hops and malt to insure a spicy, floral aroma with a light crisp finish. Serve this with a grilled piece of fresh fish or pork chops.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear golden with an off-white head. Citrusy, gingery nose. Medium body, dry maltiness again with a little citrus and some ginger. Dry finish with a discreet hop bite. Would be a quenching summer drink. 100110

Pours crystal clear with a thin white head. I wont sugarcoat it. It looks like piss. Im not sure what it smells like. There was a bit of bottle stink, which is understandable because it had to travel all the way from Napa to San Francisco. Im almost afraid to take a drink, but here goes... Wow. That tastes like nothing. I seem to have gotten a bottle of stinky yellow seltzer water. I guess it could be worse.

Wow, what a lot of butter in this aroma. The flavor has some butter as well with a hint of wheat and a very buttery finish. Im hoping that my bottle was tainted since I found this highly undrinkable.

hayduke (3369) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 26, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a hazy yellow with a nice fat white head and good lacing. Nose is citrus, banana, and a hint of clove. Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing. Flavor is malty, with citrus and light ripe finish is dry and floral. Very easy to drink beer and quite refreshing.

22oz bomber, no date from Bottle Barn. Clear gold with a one and a half finger white head, good retention. Aroma of lemon, light banana, and light white pepper. Flavor is kinda lemony with a little bit of pepper. The finish is semi-dry, bitterness about a 2. Low carbonation with a light body. Doesnt seem much like an American wheat beer to me, but still isnt too bad. Kinda saison-ish.
