COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style unfiltered Wheat Ale. An effervescent and light ale, it is a refreshing summer afternoon thirst quencher. Wheat beer’s history goes back to the Pharaohs of Egypt. By the 16th century it was popular in Germany where it is usually served quite cold, and with a slice of lemon. American Wheat Beer, which can be traced to the colonial brewer’s need to stretch scarce European imported malt with adjuncts like wheat, has a less fruity, more balanced taste and finish than its German relative, the result of American hops and yeast.

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2013
THOUGHTS: Decent American wheat ale. A little more hoppy than I prefer a wheat beer, but it does make it interesting. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, dark, brownish amber with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma contained light to moderate wheat, light pine and citrus hops; light doughy yeast; slight bubble gum; citrus; and something like clay. The initial flavor was moderately acidic and slightly sweet; while the finish was moderately acidic, slightly sweet and lightly bitter with a short duration. There was citrus fruit, wheat, yeast, citrus hops and light pine hops. The light to medium body was somewhat dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

7/3/2010. Sampled at the brewery. Hazy golden color with a white head. Aromas of coriander, clove, malt, hay and light fruit. Tart, malty flavors with bitter hops on the end.

Bottle. Unfortunately think this one is past it's prime too. Pours hazy gold with no head. Nose is almost undetectable. Taste is a little musty and a strong hint of apricots. Palate is very thick. Weird for the style. Hope to retry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pale yellow with a bit of an orange tinge with a decent white head. Fresh, some wheat, bit of corn, light malt, some floral hops but very light. Somewhat sweet, mild body and moderate carbonation, bit of a stale aftertaste though with an odd combination of slight bitterness and a corny sweetness.

Very basic wheat beer. This beer is not very complex and or deep. It does look good though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4132) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2012
12oz bottle. Some chill haze maybe..golden-yellow straw color, thin, steady head. Smooth, medium body. Clean, watery malt body. Some clove wheat bite up front, bud fades into a smooth finish. Intensely sessionable, A little more lively and biting than some of it’s stylistic contemporaries, but still downright mellow. Some honey malt tones. Refreshing, a challenging style.
