COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napa Smith Wheat beer has a light and clean taste that is characteristic of this type of style. We have added special ingredients to accentuate the aromas beyond the hops and malt to insure a spicy, floral aroma with a light crisp finish. Serve this with a grilled piece of fresh fish or pork chops.

Bottle. Clear light golden beer with a whitish head. Toasted wheat/malt aroma. Wheat/cereal flavor with a bit of spice and fruitiness. Medium body. Wheat starts to linger with a bit of fruitiness and spice. Nothing too strong in flavor. Unoffensive, but doesn’t stand out. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Draft at Sweet Spot. Clear gold with foamy white head. Aroma of white toast and puke. Mostly inoffensive delicate malt and cracker plus a touch of soupy vegetative flavor. Pleasantly rich body but slightly curdling finish.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 1, 2011
Colour is a blend of copper and gold. Reminiscent of a dunkelweise. Palate is soft and lush. Creamy even. Near full. For 4.x% abv it does have a tinge more alcohol taste than I expected.

Aroma has some bubble gum accents, trace of esters, but overall reminds me of a slightly stale malt liquor. Flavor has a hint of cloves, some buttery notes, a trace of bubble gum. Smooth mouthfeel Overall, decent.

BigBeer45 (1562) - Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle, this ale had a clear pale yellow pour and made a one finger or more white creamy head, effervescence was medium or less, left some fingers and partials rings on the sides of the glass, there was a thin film on the bottom of the bottle, the aromas were wheat grain with light fruit citrus that had hints of lemon with faint fruit and bread sweetness in the background, the flavors were grainy wheat, a little lemon citrus, and light bread, the mouth feel was a little less than medium with medium carbonation, a nice wheat beer, it was better than what I expecting.

Dogbrick (13748) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Sample at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City. Pours a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat and sweet spice. Light-bodied and effervescent with flavors of ginger, crackery malt and wheat. The finish is sweet with a short ginger aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On tap at the brewery. It pours yellow with a big white head. It has a very light ginger aroma with a little bready malt similar to what you would get in a blonde ale base. The flavor is watery with hints of ginger. Very light bodied. Meh.
