COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The short days and long nights bring this prowling cat out on the town, looking to scatch up some fun with a great beer. This Night Cat is dark in color, bold in hop but not heavy in body. It is full of tropical fruit notes from the Citra hops that combine with a nice dark wheat malt flavor.

Not you fatherís wheat beer! Dark in color with strong hops. But not a heavy beer.

Can. Pours a clear amber with a touch of orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of citrus that is backed by grass and wheat. Flavor has more of a combination of earthy citrus and grass with some wheat in the finish.

12 oz can at home from notes. Pours a basic brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a mild roast to the wheat malts, a splash of chocolate, with nice citrus hop character, light tropical fruitnotes as well. DDecent enough, actually better than expected.

Splendid. Truth in advertising. A solid wheat beer. With an added hoppiness. Recommended.

Can purchased at Elevated in South Mpls. Consumed in Belgian glass with commonshawn as part of NYE 2014. Color actually looks close to brown but probably more dark mahogany. Full finger of head that slowly dwindles but leaves lacing that brings a smile to the face. Dull aroma with hints of sweetness and mild hops. Struggling to find what characteristics...getting more black IPA qualities. Less roasted malt. Hoppy and bitter comes to the forefront. Finish is milder maybe as a result of the wheat. Iím enjoying more as I make my way through the glass. This cat snuck up on me under the cover of the darkness with which it was poured.

commonshawn (477) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Can with commonmac. Almost brown with some red hue and soft white head. Great lacing. Subtle smell maybe some sweetness. Hop and malt balance , donít get many wheat elements. More like a black ipa. Finish is also black ipa , but fresher. Was a much different beer than I expected, but I suppose it was worthy of a prowl on my tongue.

Lubiere (10551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
A dark amber wheat ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light floral hops, treacle, very nice. In mouth, a nice roasted malt with light floral hops, easy drinking, well done. On tap at Urban Brew and BBQ.

My favorite treat, dark and flavorful. Strong, but Not too bitter. Very dark beer.... hence the name... but very smooth. Not too sweet

Definitely different with the sweetness of a weiss beer and the slight bitters of an IPA. Athogh winter this would really be a great summer brew. Poured from a can, dark reddish brown color. Its head is large, disapates quickly. Hints of citrus and sweet which I often donít care for but fits this beer well.

12 oz can from the Binnys South Loop Singles Rack (Chicago, IL). The last from my mix-a-six pack. Pours a nice brownish copper hue, a well hazed body with nice orange copper glow throughout, good light. Mellow frothy tannish head atop stays as a nice decent layer that sticks around and laces well enough. Aromas are a bit toasty, carmelized and bready malts meet some citrusy hops. Touches of grapefruit, mellow florals. Some soap, more grapefruit rind with touches of earth, a bit carmelized. Mellow age displays but the hops are still enjoyable. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied. A touch of toastiness and darker malts hits the palate with earthy hops, faint pine and citrusy grapefruit rind. Some softened malt elements into the middle with flaked wheat, bready malts, crusty bread and a hit of carmelization. Some gentle bitterness, mellow fruit. Backend is a bit bitter, lingering yet quickly tapering grapefruit, gentle fruit elements from the wheat. A bit odd. Perhaps a fresher go would be more prudent but itís not offensive, certainly drinks easy. But it seems to lack freshness and pop with itís hop character, a bit faded. It was ok, I guess. I donít think Iíd ever buy a full 6er though. I will say it does look very nice.

Can from World of Beer Tioga. Pours reddish brown with a good bit of light showing through and a small off white head. Aroma of bitter piney hops, biscuity malts, light toffee, grains. Flavor is somewhere between a malty IPA and a hoppy brown ale. Iíll go with the latter. Bready malts and some bitter pine, grainy flavors, a bit of toffee. Donít get much from the wheat. Medium bodied at most with medium carbonation. Decent beer but unexciting.
