Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat is an unapologetic American Wheat with the rich flavors of Kansas grain, a fruity aroma and a taste like the very best day of summer. Just like the Halcyon Days of yore, this seasonal brew won’t last forever, but no worries: Halcyon will return next year sure as summer.

My first impression is that this is a weak attempt to make a raw beer of some kind. It looks and smells wonderful with a warm bready tone from across the room. But once you take a taste you realize that the yeast is immature and the aftertaste is almost cheesy. Tallgrass is number one on their highly refined pale ales but this is just an attempt to fill in a much desired category. I would rather have a mass produced beer in the same category from down the i70. Just because you are from the wheat state, does not mean you have to be number 1 in wheat.

Golden with a thick, meringue head and a faintly spicy nose . Mildly-carbonated with a somewhat thin mouthfeel followed by a lemony, underripe banana aftertaste.

Pours a light gold with a nice carbonated head. Hay, wheat and grain predominate the nose. There’s nothing subtle about the taste of wheat on the tongue. Very bready also, with a bit of lemony citrus. Medium mouth that seems to me a bit chewy, but that may be from all the wheat this beer implants upon the brain. This is an unexpectedly nice beer.

Can. Hazy peach pour, thin bit of carbonation and an aroma of sweet oranges. Flavor is also nice floral oranges, slightly creamy on the aftertaste. Nice beer, no off flavors anywhere.

on tap @ Big Grove Brewing / Solon IA --- Clear light amber, good head cover, wide bands of lace. Good looking brew. Taste is wheat and malt with light papaya in the palate, adding mild pine bitters in a diminishing finish. Overall, satisfactory, but not particularly assertive. Good mild wheat ale.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2014
6/14/14. 16oz can from Happy’s in Cedar Falls. Lightly hazed golden orange pour with a small but satisfying khaki head that cuts in half but sticks. Relatively plain aroma, soft wheat aromatics, light citrus. Plain flavor, but it’s nice. Lightly creamy, soft wheat, citrus, a touch of grassiness, and lingering biscuits. Tasty enough.

This pours a cloudy, golden amber color with a slight head. The taste is smooth, full of wheat and a hint of citrus. Overall pretty good and delicious.
