COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Todays forecast...Windy! A Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with honey and spices, a great beer for quenching the thirst of Chicago. Windy City Wheat swirls in the mouth with a pleasant sweetness and a zesty, orange-citrusy fruitness settling nicely into the honey tones.

Chi-Town Windy City Wheat "90 Points" & Gold Medal from the World Beer Championships (Wit Category)

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus, grain and some spice. The taste follows the nose. A slightly above average beer.

341 ml bottle poured at Shulas at the Westin in Chicago. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells like oranges. Tastes like oranges. Wholly mediocre. Drinkable.

Cybercat (5562) - Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours clear golden with a thick eggshell head that doesnt stick around for long. Wheaty aroma has an undertone of butterscotch and a yeasty hint. Flavor is wheaty with yeast and butterscotch hints, not strong but palatable. Texture has little fizz and average body at best. Still, an OK brew. Have it with a meal.

[Bottle] Pours a honey color with a bit of cloudiness to it. Light nose of wheat malts and hints of metal. Similar flavors of wheat, lemon zest and mild coriander. Still getting hints of metal in the flavor. Light in body and a bit grainy. OK overall.

Ill refrain from making comments about the term "Chi-Town" this time around. The ale has a clear yellow body with slowly rising bubbles supporting a three-finger white head. The note is wheaty, bready, with subtle traces of spices. The flavor is much the same, a wheat ale with hints of spices and a slight orange rind bitterness. I enjoy an occasional Wit, but will pass on this INO one in the future.

tmoreau (4160) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a cloudy, golden color, with some good persistence to both the frothy, white head, and the spots & patches of lacing. The aroma started with a fleeting metallic hint, then some peachy sweetness, maybe a hint of spice, and light graininess that I can only describe as earthy & toasty. The taste presented moderate, citrusy & rindy bitterness, and a bit of tartness that both had some lingering qualities to them. Medium to light bodied, with perky carbonation, a fairly crisp finish, and okay sessionability.
