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.

Bottle thanks to OldStyleCubFan (summer santa). This sure is a summer beer, a refreshing wheat beer with almost no flavor. Golden orange color with fluffy head. Aroma of malts and citrus. Taste is of malts and watery rye. It is smooth with little to no carbonation. nice to have tried this beer, thanks OldStyle.

Date: 08/15.08, 12 oz. bottle

Aroma - Light biscuit, faintly floral, hint of spice

Appearance - Cloucy gold, medium white head that is creamy, and although not very large, does last nicely, strands of persisting lace

Flavor - Fruity and light malty sweetness up front, hint of sourness and a distant spicy bitterness in the finish, although the finish is neutral

Palate - Light body, medium carbonation, fairly clean palate, but not quite dry enough for me.

Overall - Pretty decent, but not outstanding. Light, some refreshing qualities. Nice to see a new offering from Highland.

nearbeer (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2008
12 oz. Hazy, golden pear-colored with a lasting inch of meringue. Beautiful creamy lace all over the glass. Typical wheat, spicy yeast and citrus aroma. Typical American Wheat flavor of ash, sour stomach acid, wheat and drying lemon hop. Maybe some slight banana bubblegum. Light-medium body is easy on the carbonation, watery and finishes dry.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours out a nice orange / yellow color. Not much of a head at all. Smell is fruity and sweet, some lemon, tad bit of hops, nice! Taste is sweet and smooth, very refreshing, easy to drink. Not bad, really. I would like to see a bit more from these guys, but this beer kind of settles into the norm for them: just average.

Pours a bright very hazy gold. Lots of sediment in the bottle of this one. Two finger creamy white head. The nose is very citrusy, lemongrass, wheaty, musty, yeasty. The flavor is tart and citric, wheaty, yeasty. Kind of still/flat on the palate with a tart citric bite. Thick wheat mouthfeel. Overall I was fairly pleased with this one. I didn’t expect it to be too great and it wasn’t too bad.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Rating #1900! 12oz bottle, courtesy of wilkie. Thanks, Chris! Pours a hazy golden color; decent white head with patchy lacing. Slightly watery nose, showing cloves, light wheatiness, and citrus. Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation; toasty, husky wheat presence, light citrus; slightly rough and overly abrasive on the palate; very one-dimensional expression. Medium finish: toasty wheat, citrus; very husk-y.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours opaquely cloudy golden yellow with white head. Aroma of sweet banana, bread, honey, and citrus. The flavor is zesty at first, then some coarse, grainy notes follow. It has a pretty refreshing citrus quality throughout, and various fruity notes jump out once in a while. It finishes with assertive yeast and rye spiciness. Pretty good beer for what it is.
