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.

Pours slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma and taste include the expected wheat citrus plus clove and ginger.

Agreeable summer drink. Slightly hazy golden color, mild head that quickly dissipates. No lacing. Taste is a one-shot of clean mildly "citrussy" light grain. Weak hops in the finish. Nothing wrong, but not much right.

The aroma is nothing special with only a touch of sour dough wheat and hops. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The taste is not like the aroma, it’s better. The taste is like sweet herb bread with no astringency just strait forward and one dimensional. The palate is thin. Overall a really odd beer with not much going for it except where it counts the taste.

PorterPounder (5202) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden, sparkling pour with a soft white head. Aroma has some bubble gum accents, trace of esters, but overall reminds me of a slightly stale malt liquor. Flavor has a hint of cloves, some buttery notes, a trace of bubble gum. Smooth mouthfeel Overall, decent.

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Very nice label, that should be on a wine bottle. Slightly foggy, light golden beer, a floofy head. A fresh, light malty aroma. ’Special Ingredients’ in the commercial description obviously mean ginger. Lightly salty, a bit tangy, lightly sweet. Medium light body. Decent enough, and it *would* go well with a nice pork chop. ABC Likkas, Betton.

Poured a clear off-gold colour with a sustained head. Very astringent across the palate to an off-putting effect.

12oz bottle. Golden color, thin white head. Aroma of wheat malt and crisp cider. Flavor is simple consisting of citrus and ginger. Well balanced. Mostly a presence of fruit over traditional Wheat Ale flavors. 5,3,6,4,11

Poured a slightly hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma is kinda funky with oranges, lemons, and wheat. The wheat is very noticeable in the aroma which is nice. Almost like sourdough bread. Taste is crisp with some interesting wheat flavors at first. Finish is a little tart with lemon and some skunk. Lots of clove and spices in the finish as well. Overall pretty interesting and refreshing.
