COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Although few of us will ever achieve the official jersey, there is an athlete in all of us that thirsts to get out. Yellow Jersey Wheat is an American wheat style ale. We use 50% malted barley and 50% malted red hard winter wheat. It’s a light-bodied beer that is perfect for the hot Texas summers. It has a light hazy straw color with a light citrus character.

Smells wheaty and pours hazy yellowish. Taste is nice and wheaty too. Medium body, good carbonation and just a tasty simple quality wheat beer.

Enjoyed at GABF. Nice straw colored appearance with a delightful nose. Nice bold wheat flavor on the front end of this brew with a crisp smooth finish. Skip the lemons and oranges, this stands alone.

Hey we go, made for the texas heat .. . Poured out a hazy yellow, great head that died down quite a bit- some lacing left over .. . light banana skin, mushy wheat, and barley straight from the farm .. . it was to refreshing for me write anything else, its all gone .. . float like a butterfinger, stank like a bee. ..

Typical wheat. Cloudy, rich golden color. Easy drinking with the added lemon. Not particularly memorable but it is very competent.

Tap at Dancing Bear. Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a fat white foamy head. Aroma is wheat grain, sweet lemon and fruit, light soil notes. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is light wheat, grain, fruit citrus and some dry earthy notes. Not bad.
