Water Street Punch You In The Eye PA
On tap at the Delafield source. Pours a very cloudy tannish brown with no head, leaving almost no lace. Aroma has sweet malts, light hoppiness and fruit. Taste is of sweet caramel, light lemon and light hops. Similar to a more hoppy Corona with some muddiness and some caramel. Shrug? 10.7

Water Street Punch You In The Eye PA
On tap @ WSB, Oak Creek. This is on par with what an American brewed IPA should be: hoppy on the nose, palate, and finish. Nice burnt orange color. Alcohol content not detected. Served in a dimpled mug. Nice!

Water Street Raspberry Weiss
On tap @ WSB, Oak Creek. Pinkish purple pour. No head whatsoever. Nose of raspberry Kool Aid. Weak, sickly sweet, and lacking in any natural fruit flavor. Tasted more like a flat generic soda than any kind of beer. This is really sub-par for this genre.

Water Street Punch You In The Eye PA
On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy amber color with a lumpy tan head. The beer smells of citrus, orange, grapefruit and toasted malt. The taste is as it smells with substantial sweetness from the malt. Light + body and nicely carbonated.

Water Street Raspberry Weiss
Smells sweet citrus but wouldnít call it raspberry. Pink color. The wheat flavor is lost to the sugars. The touch of fruit is a little like fruit stripe gum before it goes to pot. Tap

Water Street Amber
Not my gig, but easy for an amber. Light in every aspect except for the deeper orange red color. Close to what an amber should be. Tap

Water Street Pumpkin Ale
Draft at milwaukee brewery. Definitively not a pumpkin-pie-in-a-glass version, aroma and taste of some spices, mostly cinnamon, though not sweet. The malt and pumpkin are well balanced with the wheat base coming through at the end with a banana finish. Worth trying!

Water Street Brown Ale
Draft at the brewery. Decent color and taste, typical Flanders brown in every respect though somehow has a watered down taste. Worth a try, not great.

Water Street 25th Anniversary Mead
Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2015. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy honey with a touch of sweetness, dryness and a hint of plastic. Flavor is cloyingly sweet with honey and a bit of light fruits underlying.

Water Street De-Peche Sour
Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2015. Pours a clear pink gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is peach forward with a slight tartness and a bit of candied peach underlying. Flavor is like sour candied haribro peach with a bit of light rains and funk backing.

Water Street De-Peche Sour
Draft on tap at Great Taste of the Midwest 2015 (MadisonN WI). Pours a pale golden hue, a mellow hgziness, frothy whitish head atop with mellow lacing. Aromas are peachy, a bit sweet and tart with nice fruit play. Mellow tartness, bready malts and dry grain, subtle citrus grows. Initial is dry, peachy and tart with gentle sweetness, a bit of lactic appeal. Fruity, mellow and crushable with tight tartness, some acidity grows slowly. Mellow straw, cleaner body, solid stuff. An amazing appealing nose and approachable sessioner of a peachy lighter sour. A surprising find at Great Taste 2015.

No hop aromaand good malt aroma showing some oxidation. Head does not linger like the real deal. Malt flavor is not complex enough and has papery notes. A little astringency.

Water Street Raspberry Weiss
On-tap, this pours a reddish color with pink head. The aroma is tart with raspberries and hints of wheat. The taste is sweet and tart, the raspberries really come through. A decent brew, much better than the rating would suggest.

Water Street Raspberry Weiss
Draft at the downtown brewery in Milwaukee. Cloudy, reddish color. Raspberry aroma. Tart, raspberry flavor. Watery mouthfeel. Dry finish. Seems to be a brew that is caught between being a traditional beer with a hint of fruit and a full-fledged fruit beer; this doesn't quite work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Water Street De-Peche Sour
On tap at GTMW 2014 - Pours golden with a white ring of head. Nose is peach schnapps. Pretty much just peach schnapps. Same taste--real tart and peachy. Kind of reminds me of drinking fuzzy navels in college but without the bite. Nice carbonation and smooth body.

Pour is a cloudy amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt and I guess a little hop. Flavor is a way sweet malt with almost no hop presence. This was pretty poor. No hops showed themselves and it was overly sweet.
