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.

Poured into a 12oz glass. Light colour, pretty clear. Head is white and maintains well. Aroma is wheat and fruity. Flavour is sweet, medium to full bodied, and a little more than average carbonation. Overall a good wheat beer. Found it at grocery outlet for $7.49, very good value.

Had this at Taylors at the Ferry Building. Really nice, an american wheat beer with some phenolic and spicy complexity. Full bodied, notes of wheat, toast, pepper, citrus. There is a slight sweetness to this that Iím not sure if it is distracting or makes it so enjoyable. Another sample is in order.

Sampled on 3/30/2009. This wheat ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and good lacing. The aroma is cereal and grainy with a touch of sweet esters. A medium bodied wheat ale. The malts are cereal and grainy, some bubble gum and only a touch of banana and clove ester so itís more of a wheat ale than a Hefe. The hops are floral and spicy. Good carbonation. Nice balance. I am not one for wheat ales, but this one is very nice. A very clean and smooth tasting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

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

marcus (6501) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2008
This bubbly yellow gold beer poured with a nice white head and a banana aroma. There is a clean crisp pale malt flavor with some nice hopping, producing a beer that is not as sweet as most wheat beers. There is moderate carbonation and a slight banana ester finish.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold with a filmy, creamy white head. Aroma has wheat and some spices, perhaps nutmeg. Flavor is sweet, wheaty, with faint bitterness and slight metal. Light to medium in body with fine, tingly carbonation. Finish is sweet and malty. Decent.
