COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 Pours amber w/ a decent head. Reduces to a fine lace. Aromas of snappy malts. Medium full nectar w/ good carbonation. Malty sweet w/ defined wheat characteristics. Caramel, biscuits, nectarine. The finish lingers fruity w/ mild acidity.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2008
12oz bottle. Oranges beginning to go bad, wheat cereal soaked in milk for a few hours, a touch of almost lacto sweetness, and grainy bread dough on the nose. Pours a dark, inviting copper. Malted wheat and light caramel sweetness on the tongue. Light notes of metal and cardboard as well. Not a whole lot going on but far from offensive. Medium bodied and slightly creamy with a crisp and abrupt finish. Thanks Craig!

marcus (6780) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2008
This dark brown beer poured with a decent tan head. It looks good, but the taste is disappointing. There is a very thin caramel malt flavor and almost no wheat characteristics. There is a long chalky finish.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2008
Red/amber color. Aroma of some moderately sweet toasted wheat. Sweet wheat was the predominant flavor with some caramel malts, toast with a light crisp finish. Meh.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2008
Small, foamy, off-white head covering an amber body. Wheat, cardboard, cherries, and oranges in the aroma (not attractive). Fruity, and very sweet tastee. Watery-fizzy mouthfeel.
