An American-style wheat ale brewed with 30% malted wheat and 2 row barley. Low hopping rates allow the refreshing aroma and citrus flavor of a late addition of lemon grass to dominate. This unfiltered beer retains all of its protein, flavor, and some of its yeast, resulting in a traditionally cloudy appearance. 2000 North American Brewers Asc. Gold Medal

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that receded at a steady pace down to a thin film with a medium collar and had some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a straw malt and a moldy yeast with notes of wheat, lemon grass, a hint of candi sugar and a mild spiciness. The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of candi sugar at first and then became rather yeasty with a touch of lemon grass and a bit of spice towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while being mostly of a citrusy wheat taste. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice mild carbonation. Overall a light refreshing brew with a good sweet citrus presence, which matched well with the yeasty wheat flavor...

Bottle. Colour...slightly hazy gold with no head. Nose...stale bubble gum, over cooked corn, and old broccoli. Palate...oxidized, stale, cardboard and school paste with traces of papee mâché and a weird tangy thing.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours very hazy orange amber color with a small foamy white head. The head fades rather fast leaving a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a wheat smell mixed with a good deal of some lemon and orange. Along with these aromas comes some lighter smells of grain and a little bit of grassy and hay smell. Taste- The taste begins a wheat bread taste mixed with some sweeter flavors of an orange citrus. These flavors create a base taste for the brew, with the orange citrus taste growing slightly stronger as the taste moves forward. Along with the orange, a lemon flavor really kicks its way into the taste. With some grassy and herbal taste coming at the end of the taste, one is left with a wheaty and more sour citrus taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is rather thick for a brew of only 4.7 % with a carbonation level that is rather low. The thickness is great for the wheat flavors of the brew creating a more chewy feel. A little higher carbonation level would have made the brew slightly more refreshing in nature and matched the sourness slightly better, but overall the feel was pretty good. Overall – A rather decent brew overall. A little bit on the sour side, but not bad overall.
