An invigorating wheat beer with a hint of rye and the tang and hue of hibiscus, this refreshing brew is as cool as the breeze that blows down from Mount Mitchell to Cattail Peak. Enjoy this delicious creation when the hottest summer day demands the best of the Blue Ridge.

Also known as Organic Cattail Peak Wheat Beer.

Pours hazy yellow, but no sediment in the bottle... Aroma is banana all the way, with some spice. Banana hits with the flavor as well, but there is a bit of hoppyness that I wasnt expecting, but also cant put my finger on completely. Good summer beer and the fact that it is organic and (somewhat) local boosts the appeal.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2009
Bottle pours a hazy, very pale golden body with a small white head. Faint aroma has wheat, vague spices, and lemony citrus. Light body is crisply carbonated. Taste has twangy wheat, lemon, grassy hop bitterness, and lemon. An excellent summer thirst slaker, but nothing here to offer any excitement.

bottle. pours hazy golden, with thin white head. Aroma has a good nose of wheat with light yeast as well as some hops and citrus aroma. Taste, I enjoyed this one a lot with a good mix of the wheat and light mouthfeel of caramel malts in the finish. Light yeasty palate with some citrus hops. Light, very enjoyable.

tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Pours very hazy and cloudy, yet bright yellow. there is some fizzy white head as well. The aroma is rich wheat flour with a slight citrus and mashed banana note. The flavor is pretty robust. Lots of toasted flavors with an earthy hop character and mild bitterness. Fuller body with refreshing carbonation and a dry finish.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2008
TN tasting at maniac’s. Pours a only slightly hazy yellow with fair white big bubble head. Aroma is sweet wheat with hardly any citrus. Flavor is stale hops and a little bitterness in the finish. Didn’t actually care for this, maybe it’s the rye. I guess I just hate rye....

Big thanks to ROBORB for the bonused bottle!
Pours a rich cloudy, thick yellowish color with a short lived white head. Smell is wheaty with some lemony citrus notes and a touch of yeastiness. Taste is quite wheaty, slightly creamy with a lemony brightness and some light spicing from the yeast. Some light bitterness and metallic notes. Medium to slightly rich bodied and soft to medium carbonation. Solid wheat beer and refreshing. Thanks again Rob!
