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.

chinchill (1872) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2013
12 oz bottler served in a lager glass. A: pours clear golden with a well-proportioned, dense, off-white head. A high level of visible carbonation. Some nice lacing. Small amount of sediment in the bottle, of which a bit was included with the pour. S: a mostly unappealing floral aroma with musty, yeasty and grassy notes. Hints of cardamon and ginger. Taste is way better and fresher, as well as more delicate and less spicy than expected. Wheat is evident but subtle, Hints of cinnamon, cardamon and ginger. Light on hops for style. (yes, I know this style is supposed to be light on hops.) M: Medium-light bodied; medium-high but soft carbonation. O: a delicate, lightly spicy wheat beer. :

A good beer! Pours a boring yellow. Smells is very gingery and sweet. Taste is good, sweet with a bite. Ginger notes all around. Would be great with sushi. Unique! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. It pours yellow with a big white head. It has a very light ginger aroma with a little bready malt similar to what you would get in a blonde ale base. The flavor is watery with hints of ginger. Very light bodied. Meh.

Sorry to say this beer left a lot to be desired. No real aroma and barely any taste to it. Boo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Sample at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City. Pours a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat and sweet spice. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of ginger, crackery malt and wheat. The finish is sweet with a short ginger aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Fatehunter (1213) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Thin head on a clear, medium straw colored body. Smells of fruit: apple and pear mostly and a little honey. Taste starts with a little sweet note, then dry bitterness... the middle and end are watery and bland. Starts out okay and then runs out of flavor halfway through. Crisp texture, low carbonation and medium body. The taste was a real disappointment, the rest of it was average.

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Pours a clear, rather wan solar yellow with a thick, if not too persistent, white head. Wheaty aroma is none too strong and has a hint of yeast. Flavor has a malty core and wheaty and yeasty notes, plus a hint of fruit. Smooth texture has typical body and fizz, leaving a tingle that is persistent if not strong. Though not the best wheat Iíve had, give it a try if this is your favorite style.
