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: FEB 29, 2008 12 oz bottle from a variety pack case. A gift from my loving wife on our anniversary: Color is reddish-amber with a medium, fading off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty. Flavor starts light caramel sweet with some wheat and a hint of cherry followed by a light, somewhat dry citrus bitterness. Medium body is smooth with moderate carbonation.

12oz bottle: pours dark amber in color with quick fading white head. aroma of slighty sweet malt. flavor has a fair amout of malt to it what an added black cherry like taste not strong but there. not a bad beer but nothing special the 07 was much better. i like how the guy 2 down said he poured it down the sink, i wonder out of the 1173 beers he rated didnt get tossed? because this one isnt that bad.

Faint aroma and flavor for that matter. This one didn’t do too much for me. Slightly malty with a little hops...most it has going for it is the appearance. Pours a nice clear red color with a fair off white head. Head didn’t last too long and there was virtually no lacing to speak of. Not much to the finish. Not terribly impressed.

pours a nice amber/brown with light head. Tastes a bit thin (due to low carbonation?) to me but otherwise pretty good - nice chewy wheaty taste with very slight hints of vinegar

Pours amber with a small white head. Bready malt nose, spicy and earthy hops. Fairly heavy body for what I thought would be a bit more crisp and estery.

12oz bottle pours out a dark amber or maybe crimson??? Topped with a small white head. A nice aroma of malt and light wheat. Tast of thick malt a little hops and a touch of sweetness. not to bad.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark copper. if held up to an iridescently light it is almost the color of rose gold, beautiful. Head is about 4 fingers right after the pour with small almost nitro looking bubbles. This recedes to a half finger head that remains throughout the drink. Smell is light floral hops and dry biscuit like malts. Taste is very light floral hops with a strong wheat backbone. Very thick wheat taste at the back of the throat with some banana like chewyness. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with very low carbonation. Its pretty unique. This beer has a very smooth but big (thick) finish. Not too bad. Almost the definition of a session beer.

Brass-amber color with some froth of head. Does not remotely resemble a wheat beer, and not at all cloudy. More akin to an amber in appearance and a Britt pale ale in aroma, flavor, and body. Dank, stagnant Britt hop aroma, with a stagnant hop flavor.
