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.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: fresh breads with orange highlights under a solid white head. Hazy. Swirls with lots of foam.
Nose: spicy breads. Cracked wheat – crispy crunchy and peppery. Saltines. Orange musk. Dried tangerines and peaches.
Palate: touch funky with sour staining the edges. Wheat bread, wheat crackers, and wheat sourdough. Chewy and bready. Of the harvest.
Final Thoughts: alright but did not dig the slight sour tang which detracted from the simple yet filling whole wheat breads and plump juicy oranges.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2012
...slight wheat aroma. Thin. Highy carbonated. Tastes like cider. Tart finish. Weak wheat. No wheat flavor.

Jimthechap (1492) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 31, 2012
Lustrous hazy gold colour with plenty of carbonation, small pieces of sediment floating in the brew and a white head that took a bit of time to subside. Aromas of ginger and lemongrass, eminently spicy and quite enticing. Undertones of sweetish malt aroma. The flavour is a little underwhelming considering the aroma. Thinnish with loads of carbonation. Quite juicy but not a lot of substance. Good lawnmower beer though.

queenholly (2617) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Metallic and diacetyl aroma. Very tart. If there was any type of wheat flavor, it was overpowered by the tartness. Light body, very heavy carbonation. Between the heavy tartness and carbonation, there wasn’t really much flavor, just a lot of tongue zap going on.

strongpieman (1390) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle. Clear yellow, no head. Fruity aroma with a little sour. Carbonation seems high and taste is mainly sour fruit. Not my type of wheat beer.

calpyro (1) - USA - MAR 18, 2012 does not count
I had it recently on tap. The beer had a very pronounced butter/toffee flavor and smelled like canned peas . Diacetyl and DMS are major flaws in a modern brewery. Not good.

fluffy (1334) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
like some of the other napa smith beers ive had, this one is thin, bland and fairly one dimensional. its not bad, just not worth buying again.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 9, 2012
pours a retaining tight white head with trailing lace and yellow color. Aroma is wheat, slight light fruit, musty. Taste is spice/fruit hop zip, wheat. Light body with good flavor.
