COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light, tasty & full of character, our summer wheat ale is brewed with a combination of domestic and continental wheat and barley malts, lightly hopped & fermented with a Belgian wit yeast, resulting in a delightfully tangy & refreshing flavor. This beer is brewed for warm weather enjoyment. Bring some to your next picnic, barbeque or Frisbee game.

JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
12 oz bottle purchased in a variety pack at World Market, poured into an imperial pint.
AR: Strong citrus notes that fade to lemonade as the beer warms up. Very much more like an American wheat than the Belgian Wit mentioned in the description.
AP: Delightfully cloudy. Lively bubbles throughout, head that sticks around and is slightly foamy.
T: Not a lot of taste here. About what I expected given that this is aimed as a summer-appropriate brew for "warm weather enjoyment." Sweet to start, with some finishing bitterness. I don’t taste the chamomile advertised on the label.
P: Lively carbonation. Some astringence in the finish.
O: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. More complex than I was planning on.

The commercial description claims this beer is made w/ a witbier yeast but I am really not getting any of that kind of character at all. This is a plain old wheat beer in the American style w/ some chamomile added and it is also very good. It pours a perfectly clear orange golden. Its head is short-lived but leaves a nice pattern of lace as it dissipates. The nose has mild floral notes (presumably the chamomile), some citrus and a bit of baked bread. The best thing about this beer is it is just wonderfully drinkable. It it is light and dry w/ vigorous but soft carbonation. There is plenty of flavor but nothing too assertive and the use of chamomile is subdued and seamless. There is a good balance of doughy malt along w/ lemon and floral notes. To be honest, I was not expecting that much from this beer but it hits the spot on a hot day in a way few beers can. This is a well brewed, clean beer w/ a slight twist that works w/o being gimmicky. It is perfectly drinkable and flavorful enough to keep my attention, a very good beer all around.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a weizen glass. Obviously, the head lasted longer and was about three fingers deeper than what was in the pint glass. The rest of the appearance had a nice looking hazy light golden yellow to orange color with glazed over pale look of the sorts. The lacing was somewhat clingy in parts but ends up sliding in both glasses. The smell was kinda wheaty/grainy with a light fruitiness (light tangerine & orange) backed up by some sweet pale malts. The taste was mainly the same as the nose. There was a decent crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light all around on the body with a pretty good sessionability rolling about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled as there was a decent sharp kick that lead into a gentle malty goodness rolling smoothly over my tongue. Overall, hey, nice one Smutty, I’d have it again if I could get it but it also probably wouldn’t be a go to all of the time either.

Clear as can be. Yellow color, sticky lacing. The wheat is powerful. Tons of it. Citrus, malt, slight hop, yeast, bubblegum. Good alcohol content and structure. Sticky and chewy palate. One of the few wheat ales I’ve really liked.

Thanks to Dad for this. The hops were a little out of place, it was hefeweizeny enough that hops that would work in a american wheat ale seemed out of place, but none the less a refreshing summer beer. Serving: Bottle

Bottle at home. Aroma of wheat, grass, and peaches. Flavor follows suit, with a pleasant creamy palate. Crisp finish. A bit grainy.

Yellowish green pour. Very bitter and aftertaste of dish water. Hops thrown in to put the beer more off balance. Let's see if I can manage to get the rest of the beer down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Green/gold, clear, lacy. Medium body, little carbonation for the style, thin texture, long palate. Bitter, dry to the finish. Typical soapy taste. Uninspiring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
