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.

Sample at the Seattle brewpub. The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head that diminishes slowly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of malt, chai tea and wheat. The finish is wheaty with s mildly spiced aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep orangish amber, thick and dirty, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Spicy Chai nose, also a little fruity.   Actually smells pretty good.   I was thinking Pyramid, yeah... but so far so good.   Nice balance is the first thing, not overbearing Chai (I keep wanting to spell chair), nice wheat malt base.   Moderate sweetness.   Somewhat surprised by this one.   I don’t say this often about Pyramid anymore, but wouldn’t mind if this was a year round offering.   Nice spicy Chai on the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A nice take in their otherwise mediocre Hefe.   Love the new labels too.   Better than I anticipated is what I will take away from this experience.   Has just the right amount of sweetness where when I finish, I want another.

"Pretty spot on for what they were going for/advertised. I’ve always liked chai tea and so therefore liked this beer. if you don’t, you won’t simple as that. Zero alcohol evident. Nice feel. Cool brew."

bytemesis (3321) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is wheat and a herbal tea. Flavor is again wheat with some herbal spice. It’s a wheat ale with a little dark tea added. Nothing great.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle from BevMo. Very hazy golden/orange in color. Highly spiced nose. Very herbal. Smells like some fragrant desert plants. Sweet and slightly spiced flavors up front. Some tropical fruit qualities. Very crisp and refreshing with a good wheat flavor. Solid brew.

poisoneddwarf (1727) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2013
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. I’ve had a number of pretty damn good beers lately in these seasonal variety packs. I’m glad they’ve turned themselves around.

Sampled as part of a Costco mix pack. A nicely made brew with a Chai hit. The wheat texture is nice, creamy.

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