Buckets, burlap bags and pickup truck beds are filled with black walnuts each fall in the Ozarks. The rich and lively flavor of the wild, hand-harvested black walnut is a renowned flavor of the region. We’re proud to continue celebrating local flavor and tradition with our handcrafted Black Walnut Wheat Ale.

On tap at Shamrocks. Served a dark brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma of Malt, wheat and nuts. Taste of malt, nice nuttiness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and quite flavorful. Enjoyable beer.

Pours deep brown with a soapy tan head. The aroma has rich nuttiness, toasted wheat, some bananas and phenolic spice. It has a medium smooth body with mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with very smooth wheat, nuttiness from the walnuts, minerals and spice. The finish has some vanilla creaminess and more spices. Pretty good.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Sampled at GABF In the tasting glass this was hazy muddy brown and a tan head that lasts. The nose is toasted malts, and I do get the walnut. Medium in body. Flavor is walnuts and malts. OK

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a hazy light brown colour with thin but persistent white foam. Low aroma but much bigger flavours. Grainy, bready, nutty (from actual black walnuts in the mash!). Light body, mineral water essence, mildly tannic and tart, lending a refreshingly dry finish. Deliciously different, memorable. A near-perfect beer.

thegreenrooster (3650) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pour is a iced tea lookalike with a small white head. Aroma is some sweet malt and that’s about it. Flavor is a little better with more of the walnut coming thru. This was ok. I was hoping it would have been better. The walnut needs to stand out more.

Can. Hazy brown color, tan head. Aroma of lightly toasted banana bread with nuts in it. Taste is sweet, malty, nutty. Interesting.

Piney River Black Walnut Wheat has an extremely thick, beige, fizzy, head, a mostly clear, bubbly, brown appearance, and minimal lacing left on the glass. The aroma is full and of sweet bread crust, some brown bread yeast, and possibly walnut. Taste is of sweet, syrupy malt, brown bread, maybe some nut, and no real bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a touch slick, and Piney River Black Walnut Wheat finishes on the wet side and highly drinkable. RJT

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
16 oz. can picked up at RBSG. Pours a clear dark tea color with a small off-white ring for a head. Notes of toasted malts, black walnuts, brown sugar, tea, tobacco, cardboard, and earth. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a very mellow tea-like mouthfeel. A little thin and watery, but not bad. Has potential.

Lightly carbonated, dark (walnut, like) color with minimal head. Taste fine but left with the feeling that it would be much better.
