3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is darker than the usual American Wheat, but obviously not a dunkelweizen from the aroma and flavor. The body is a super cloudy clay mud brown (it was cloudy before I swirled up the yeast and dumped it in and downright soupy looking afterward). The khaki-tinged white head is generous and fluffy. The aroma is heavy on wheat with a interesting addition of toasted nuts (walnuts?) Over that thereís a lemony fruitiness and it smells like Iíd expect from a tart beer, but thereís no follow-up of tartness or the slightest bit of sourness in the flavor. The flavor is aggressively wheaty with a bit of toasty malt. Very reminiscent of a lightly toasted slice of whole grain bread. The mouthfeel is slightly chalky or dusty but itís got enough body to keep from being boring. Quite frankly, Iím surprised this one is rated so low, but looking at the other ratings, which are all over the place on such basic details as what color and how cloudy it was, Iím guessing there may not be a lot of consistency from batch to batch. I mean one review calls it a kristweizen because of the clarity and I canít even get light through my glass itís so cloudy.

The history of the "choc" beer is reathter interesting. The name is derived from the native american tride Choctaw. The beer was notablely beered during period of prohibition in Oklahoma and was served in wine bottle, as to this day, and was enjoyed by may of the states elite political leaders. Because of this they usally turned a "blind eye" the brewing at Peateís Place.
Today it enjoys a regional and statewide following and is worth stopping by Peteís place itallion resturaut.
It i s served in I believe 750ml bottles as well as in kegs fo various sizes.
It is a satisfatory beer and the history makes it a good addition to your beer collection.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange/brown color.small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Interesting aroma,lightly wheaty smelling with a strong amount of orange crush smell coming through.The flavor was strange,wheat and orange with a hop taste coming on towards the end.but i get something that makes me think they were trying for a heavy body but ended up with something in the middle.Maybe iím crazy,but i do have to say that i like it.Very smooth and easy to drink and iím glad i have 2 more for when it gets really hot around here.Thanks go to Jzzbassman for sending this fine brew my way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow, it's almost as if I got a completely different beer than the rest of the raters. Had it on tap, served very cold, in a pils glass. Light yellow color with an almost lemon scent, small white head. Very carbonated, had a really refreshing taste, although better when it was cold, not that it was bad as it warmed.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light golden with a cloudy, thin froth of white head. Dusty box nose/aroma. Lightly carbonated and watery texture. Malts were husky, cardboardy and blandish. Hardly any hop aroma/bitterness to speak of. Not repulsive by any means, but very boring.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Krystall wheat I guess, really didn't grab me as a wheat beer. I got more ripe fruit and floral aroma than expected from a wheat, no spices or lemon. Very thin body, weak, did get some lemon on the palate. Chalky feel(choc beer?), disappointed, not recommended, since it appears they have changed the beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 Initial rating(2/7/03): Murky gold hue, unfiltered. Smells of coriander and peaches waft up from my glass. Flavor is a nice sublte tart citrus and honey. Not very carbonated, and the finish is an uncomfortable bitter.
RERATE (7/23/03): Clear gold hue. Lemon syrup nose, extremely thin, with some unpleasent lageresque flavors of lemon, pine, and overripe citrus... but just far too sour and skunky. It seems like I got two different beers.
