Poured into a pint glass. Dark, opaque brown color with minimal head.
It smells like walnuts, if only faintly. A little candy smell comes through too.
Wow. It tastes exactly like root beer for the first 2 seconds. Then the flavor "waters" out a bit. Some dry bitterness at the end.
Smooth texture, medium body and moderate carbonation.
If nothing else it is interesting with the walnuts and the taste of root beer.

Sample at Boulevardia 2014. Comes dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of grain, nuts, yeast, and fruit. Taste is wheat, walnuts, yeast, and some fruit. Interesting and delicious.

Sampled at Mo Beer Fest. Darkerbrown. A nutty nose. A smoother feel. Wheat is also tasted and is just about right. Not a style that is going to wow but if it was this one would.

Tap - good size foamy head, pretty dark amber color, mild aroma, definite nutty and wheat flavors - very different than your typical wheat beer, pretty good overall

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear dark brown, with an aroma like black walnut, a light sweetness, an mineral water. The flavor is like burnt cashews and grape skin. Kinda weird. But ends with a light floralness. No bitterness though.

A bit sweet, yet also stale, for the style. Like the walnut element, but still hard to love a wheat.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A yeasty wheat beer that is perfectly highlighted by the slightly sweet, earthy, natural flavor of black walnuts. Not only do the walnuts add flavor and aroma, they give the beer a nice brown ale color. If you come across this brew, you have found a remarkable treasure!

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is quite brown without being complete opaque, but it has no head; additionally, the aroma is very subtle with a slight hint of walnut. The visual and olfactory elements of the beer aren’t anything to rave about, but the taste is mildly sweet, slightly umami, and a touch sour, making a pleasurable taste that isn’t completely typical of other wheat ales. Also, the palate complements the taste with its medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and abrupt finish, which makes the beer crisp.

It poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of yeasty banana and some soapy notes. The taste was wheaty and lightly sweet with the normal banana flavors and a stronger than usual bitterness aftertaste. Nice.
