This beer was named after the train that used to run from Downtown Ames to the ISU Campus. The Dinkey has a flavor deriving from Coriander, Chamomile, Orange Peel & a closely guarded fourth secret ingredient. This mixture makes for an enjoyable and unique drinking experience!

Had on draft at the brewpub in Ames, the Belgian-style witbier is fresh-tasting though average overall. I might have made more of its aroma but for the giant orange slice floating directly on top of the beer in the glass, so what I got was a noseful of citrus - and not from the "orange peel" ingredient. This sounds damning, but in fact Dinkey Wheat is a good beer; a decent example of the type. Thanks to the brewer for...being there.

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is quite fruity with Belgian yeast and sweet wheat. Flavor is similar with sweet fruit upfront with sweet wheat and Belgian yeast supporting.

Not a bad wheat. Quite a bit of spice and orange. Somewhat light in aroma, though. Tried at the Craft beer tent at the Iowa State Fair.

Very cloudy orange color with no head. Very very fruity and wheaty. Almost like juice. Weird but kind of enjoyable. Poured from draft at old maine in Ames.

Bottle. Pours a hazy honey gold color with thin fizzy white head. Aroma of orange, chamomile, and vanilla. Reminds me of a mug of sweet chamomile tea. Clean medium bodied. Nice sweet body. Nothing harsh or bitter. Pretty smooth. Sad the tummy can’t handle more of these...

Foggy orange. Taste is orangy wheat. Interesting cinnamon flavor. Even on the finish there is a lingering amount of spice. I
