Very creative beer. WONDERFUL aroma of wheat and black walnuts. Nice malty flavor. Pours a cloudy dark amber, nice and refreshing,

seymour (1623) - 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.

Draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of wheat, nuts and bread. Taste is malts, yeast and nuts.

thegreenrooster (3463) - 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 (7382) - 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.

SKCwillie (29) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Lightly carbonated, dark (walnut, like) color with minimal head. Taste fine but left with the feeling that it would be much better.

RobertDale (4115) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
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.

Strykzone (5391) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
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.
