COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Chai Weat is an unfiltered, fusion-inspired brew designed to be a unique alternative to commonplace wheat beers. With essence of Chai tea, noble hops and gracious amounts of sweet caramel malts, the result is a well rounded, sweet, and robust wheat beer, distinctive in its class.

12 oz bottle from the winter variety pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours cloudy orange with a medium white collapsing head. Aroma is full of Chai tea spices, apples. Taste is sweet and savory; reminds me of certain pumpkin beers with those spices. Body is thin, a little watery. A nice effort from Pyramid. This brewery was really going downhill for awhile there. Iíve had a number of pretty damn good beers lately in these seasonal variety packs. Iím glad theyíve turned themselves around.

Bottle from the Winter sampler. Hazy light auburn pour supporting a short, rich and soft white head. Good lacing. Mildly spicy aroma. Chai note apparent once you seek it out. Modest malt up front with some spicy and herbal warmth giving this brew a nice complexity without overpowering the flavor. Restrained hops. Some lemon zest and a touch of milk chocolate. Rich, silky texture and a medium long and smooth finish. I was afraid the chai would come across as forced and gimmicky but it was nicely executed. A pleasant surprise.

Bottle, cloudy off white color. Strong chai nose. Taste is sweet, messy and not chai or beer. Drinkable, but just barely.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of wheat, spices and tea. Tastes of wheat, chai tea and a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with good carbonation. Overall the wheat mixed with chai tea ended up working well, pretty tasty.

Got this in a variety 12-pack for the holidays. Smooth, easy to drink; to me itís almost exactly like the Pyramid apricot, just without the apricot, and maybe a little spice added. I donít pick up much "chai."

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber yellow with a medium light beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is wheat, spices (not really identifying them with chai), lemon, and a touch of cardboard. Flavor is about the same, spicy and medium sweet. Light bodied.

smaynard6000 (634) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with a small frothy white head. Looks much like a hefeweizen. Sweet aroma with unfamiliar spices, probably chai tea. Sweet fruity flavor with grain notes. Slight amount of bitterness in the finish. Decent.

A smooth, light taste. This wheat beer is brewed with malts, hops, and tea.

~Fruity melon berry like aroma with some chai spiciness and bready wheat. Refreshing aroma. ~Pours a hazy gold with disappearing white head. ~Spicy chai flavor with some sweet frutiness. Bready wheat. ~light bodied, high CO2, spicy chai finish. ~This is a very refreshing wheat beer. I really like the flavors that the chai brings. Like a spicy berry flavor. Very good. Would love to have a case of this in the hot summer days.
