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.

On tap at the brewpub. A clear one, golden in colour and with a small, white head. Subtle ginger aroma, as well as some fruit notes and pale malts. Spiced, ginger flavor, but balanced, leaving room for the malts and hops. Not much bitterness, but it’s not necessary either. A bit thin in the palate. A well brewed ginger beer. 130807

Rated on 2-13-2011. This bottled beer has pours a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a short retention, slightly hazy yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, some banana, and a hint of clove. The taste is sweet, wheat and citrus. The mouth feel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer lacks a lot of quality for the style as the flavor just is not right for this style. It left me not wanting this beer again.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a yellow color with a slight haze and a small white head. Notes of wheat and citrus in the aroma. The flavor profile is quite muted. Wheat malts, cereal, citrus, esters and light spices throughout. Watery to say the least. Not to say this is an bad beer, but it is pretty damn boring and bland.

Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Hazy yellow pour. Aroma is fruity. Some citrus and lemon. Not bad but nothing special.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear goldenorange color with a small white head. Grainy sweet aromas are mixed with spicy ginger and citrus. Taste of wheat, hay, light spices. Overall, very light flavor. Not much going on. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium to light bodied

rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Agreeable summer drink. Slightly hazy golden color, mild head that quickly dissipates. No lacing. Taste is a one-shot of clean mildly "citrussy" light grain. Weak hops in the finish. Nothing wrong, but not much right.

2.6
taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Light yellow and crystal clear with tons of carbonation. Aroma is mostly of fresh straw and a touch of citrus. Distant taste of bread and not much of a traditional wheat beer taste. Not a lot of "taste" is there actually - it’s a fairly light wheat beer.
