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 wonít 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.

Cloudy/Dirty golden color with a tall white head. Herbal and wild flower aromas. Hints of sweet wheat underneath. Light toasted wheat and herbal to weedy flavors. Mild spice. This has a rustic characteristic that I am enjoying. Not the average American Wheat, which in my book is a good thing. 4/11

First snow storm of the year makes me think of summer beers, not stouts, tonight. Big spongy head, hazy gold body with lots of birds swirling around. Light malt smell, nothing else out of the ordinary in my nose. Big American Wheat taste. Good malt profile. Slight lemon on the background, but thereís also a gang of, I think, Citra hops. Not very warming in this cold weather, of course, but filling and enjoyable.

Faint aroma of grass, some citrus. Nice deep golden color, huge white head with some stability. Sweat wheat up front. sweetness is mild. Nice orange citrus note. Finish is balanced with a mild bitterness, slightly peppery. Nice rich wheat malt mouth feel, no chalkiness. Decent wheat beer.

Nephilium (1702) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Very mild spicy aroma, with a touch of wheat. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a full white head. The flavor starts with a touch of citrus, a bit of almost honey like sweetness, and a touch of earthy notes. Light bodied, with full carbonation. The finish ends with the lingering honey sweetness. If you prefer your beers on the sweeter side, youíll probably like this more then me. When I grab an American Wheat, Iím looking for more hops.

A decent beer but there are many better wheat beers to drink in the summertime.

Can. Pours mostly cloudy gold with some white head. Nose and taste is mild wheat and some citrus. Some DMS in the taste. Creamy aftertaste. Ok.

This seems to have a hint of hefeweizen character to it. Might be just the texture playing tricks on me. Itís cloudy orange with a long lasting white head. Nose is mild and pleasantly fruity with a tough of doughy grain. This is a hair too sweet for my tastes but does at least have a nice, creamy texture. It finishes slightly bitter for balance. Pretty tasty but that extra sweetness definitely takes it down a notch.
