Our Brewmasters’ Release - The three different red, caramelized, and dark wheat malts give this beer an intense red color that runs as deep as the flavor. The toasted grain flavors blend perfectly with the subtle spiciness of the hops just as the entirety fades to a smooth quick finish.

Cavie (4086) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Gorgeous ruby pour with a weak head. Faint musty aroma. Taste could stand to be stronger but isn’t that bad.

fly (1450) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Felt like a spouse with a headache if you follow my drift - just not in the mood. Nothing that was terribly wrong with this - decent fruity/estery and mice body - but ultimately didn’t DO IT for me.

decaturstevo (5696) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Amber brown pour with off white head and lace. Molasses and a light aroma of sweet malt. Semi sweet wheat with a medium bitter. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Very nice drinker overall.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Easy soft tones of wheat, yeast and caramel malts, not an overwhelming appearance, except the color is a nice reddish copper, flavor is sweet malts and spice, palate is thin, overall a quaffer that I would not refuse if it were at a party or given to me, I’m ready for the next tasting...

anders37 (20855) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2008
Draught @ WABF 2008. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with an off-white head. Nalty wheaty caramel aroma. Sweetish wheat malty flavor with some rosated hints and some hints of caramel. Sweetish wheat malty caramel finish.

stchloe (911) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2008
A wheat beer with a different color. Interesting experiment in how grain choice affects different aspects of the ale.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle. Sweet barley malt aroma. Red body with average head. Flavor like sweet corn syrup with some dry wheat. Not a smooth drinkable beer. Sticky palate with a corn aftertaste. Should of went to bed instead of drinking this one.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2008
An amber appearance with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, lemons, and bananas. The flavor is rather malty with some caramel, citrus, and bananas. The palate is rather thin. Overall I was not impressed with this.
