2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to a free beer contest by ericandersnavy. Pours a very murky blonde with a thin quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus-lemon, wheat, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter. A little on the bland side. Finish is very mildy bitter. Body is light, carbonation is soft-medium, texture is oily. A less flavorful version of Hoegaarden is how I’d put it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle into tulip, thanks Dak! Poured a cloudy orangish-golden color with a weak white head and some Belgian lace. Aromas of citrusy American hops, mild malt, some fruity esters reminiscent of peaches and apricots. Very yeasty flavor, bready, crisp pale maltiness, stewed stone fruits, some hoppy tartness and faint lemony sourness. Light body but with a chewy wheat mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very nice bittersweet, fruity aftertaste. Some signs of aging, a bit dusty and oxidized, but not unpleasant. Definitely different from German hefeweizen and Belgian Wit, Choctaw Beer is a true American original. Anyone interested in its fascinating history should read "Choctaw Beer: Tonic or Devil’s Brew" by Steven L. Sewell.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very cloudy, and golden orange. Not a typical wheat beer. Citrus flavor I can’t quite place. Slightly more bitter than I was expecting, but in a very good way.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad beer. Mine poured a clear gold because I left all the yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Medium to low carbonation with hardly any head after a few minutes. Excellent malty taste without the hops being over done. This will make an excellent session beer.

Bottle - Pours cloudy yellow with an average foamy head. Has a citrus taste to it and a medium mouthfeel. It was ok but I was ready to move on to something else.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with banana hues and a thin white head that quickly fizzles away. Not much in the way of lacing.
Spicy aroma with some pepper and cloves countered by some bready yeast, citrus fruit and banana. There’s a nice amount of lemon zest providing a nice counter to the spice and yeast notes.
Thin bodied and slightly watered down with soft carbonation and some zesty spice up front that lingers over the yeast and fruit notes into a slightly dry finish. Hints of pepper and clove up front countered mid-palate by a nice bready yeast presence followed by some lemon zest and faint banana.
Overall, this beer has all of the characteristics of the style but nothing stands out and it kind of bland.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is one great session brew! This brew poured up a cloudy, hazy, murky golden colored body with a small fizzy head that dissipated quickly and left minimal lacing. Very citrus-y, lots of hefty malts and yeast. I did not detect the usual banana scents that are usual in this brew style. This wheat brew was a nice change from most other hefeweizens (although I like to keep hefes and wheats in their own categories) as it had a nice, smooth, creamy texture and very easy to drink.
