2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Looks like unfiltered peach juice with a small, fizzy, white head. I like the aroma, but donít know what to make of it. Super fruity. Almost artificial, like a scented candle or scented liquid hand soap. The flavor is mostly nondescript, but has some decent, grainy, mash notes. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow, lots of yeast in the bottle, pretty off white head. Wheaty aroma. Thick and chewy. Flavor is tart, wheaty, and yeasty, with a clean dryish finish. I for one appreciate the amount of yeast in the beer and am not off-put by itís cloudy color, on the contrary, I applaud the color and the chewiness of the beer, hence the 4/5 on appearence and 4/5 on palate.

Was not very impressed by this. I much prefer Boulevard Unfiltered. To be honest this beer made me burp excessively. It has the color of a dijion mustard. A little hint of Lemon flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to BeerHandy. Poured dirty amber with a white frothy head. Has a sweet malt/wheat aroma. Decent wheat flavor with a little citrus character to it. Not "chewy" enough for a wheat beer. Average brew overall.

Man, Iím a dummy...thought that "Choc" beer referred to chocolate, didnít even consider the Choctaw Nation...
Very hazy, murky amber color, big, bustling fizz above, swiftly settling...
Aroma is spicy, sweetish, very airy...much like a weizen, more like a witbier...slightly citric and sour, ...very wheat-like, arousing, uplifting...nice.
Taste? smooth, easy, simple, even, but with appropriate weizen complexity...easy to drink, but with adequate character to make the time well-worth-spent...like I said, though, an easy quencher, with sufficient taste.
Cheers to the best Oklahoma beer Iíve had in long while!

pours an off color golden brown with a medium lasting head. Nice malty wheat aroma with a touch of floral hops. Good wheat flavor with a touch of citrus. Smooth drink with medium mouthfeel. Great session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to beerhandy. Pours turbid dark straw with big white head. Citrusy, firm aroma. Tastes citrusy, wheaty, smooth, very bockish. This one is a wheat on steroids. Very complex and well balanced, with finishing apricots, citrus, and a yeasty estery finish. Super smooth finish. Well done!

An uncomon beer that fits no beer style except Choc beer. Having had many example before Petes I can attest to the accuracy of the beer in this catagory

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.
