This light ale is an American interpretation of a German classic. It is not filtered and has a pleasantly tart flavor. Served with a lemon wedge.

Pours a cloudy orangish gold with a thin white head. Aroma obvious of wheat and slight spice. Flavor matches aroma. Not bad, but nothing I would care to order again.

Poured a weak semi cloudy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was almost non existant but light lemon peel and coriander. Flavor was very watery, mild wheat and spice but nothing special.

Draught at the Mt. Pleasant location. Pours cloudy pale yellow with small white head. The aroma is bready grain with a hint of lemon and slight yeasty spiciness. The flavor is water with doughy grain and slight lemon. A papery note is in the finish and leaves a spritzy aftertaste. Bland, but drinkable.

Served from tap into a standard pint. Poured a pale yellow with a white one finger head that no cloudiness. Maintained decent lacing throughout. The aroma was of pale malt. The flavor was of wheat with a small amount of hoppy bitterness. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall it was kind of weak on flavor and aroma. I wouldn’t order it again...

Pours a hazy light peach color with a white head. Aroma is wheat, malty, slightly fruity, and a hint of some spicy hops. Flavor is wheat, malty, and some slightly spicy hops.

At myrtle beach. Cloudy orangish hefe look. Has a mild hefe aroma. Good carbonation. Friendly brew, is fun. No detectable bitterness and I like that. Nice overall brew, I dig a good non-bitter hefe. Easy finsih. Didi not put lemon in mine. Good overall experience, glad I got to try it.

16oz Draft(Liberty Tap Room & Grill Myrtle Beach)-A hazy orangish yellow with an aroma of nothing. Taste of wheat and nothing else. No banana or cloves. A little weak. I believe this was New South because Liberty Brewery does not keg.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
Growler, about 5 days old, from the brewpub (SC). Neat hazy dark yellow, medium thin white head - certainly looks unfiltered. Grainy aroma, hint of yeast. Taste - ok - foamy mouthfeel is pleasant but the taste is pretty bland - grainy and a bit pof yeasty - pretty weak. Mouthfeel makes it refreshing, but that is about all here.

This is truly one of my favorites. I live close to the place and nothing, I mean nothing beats this beer on a warm June night at the outdoor beer garden before a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game. This beer has a beautiful cloudy appearance and tremendous aroma of wheat, spices and fruitiness. The mouthfeel though is my favorite quality about this beer. It fills your mouth without filling your gut. Awesome!!!

This was on tap, brewed as "Deep River Wheat" (same beer, different name) at Liberty. Cloudy, straw pour, with nice retention and soapy lace. Nice straw-grain and wheat notes in the nose... the bouquet gets better as it opens up. Unfortunately, the best part of the brew has passed. Wheat flavors are interrupted by overhopping, and a "cut" of pale biscuity malt. Citrus notes get lost easily, as well as any depth or complexity. The dry bitter back accompanies a crisp mouthfeel. The bitters are just too detracting for the style... May be "based" on a German hefe, but is definitely an American take on it. Just underwhelming.
