Thanks to mjames for the OK sample!hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Opaque, dull amber-tan colour. The aroma is yeasty, with hints of pear skins, light orange and dust. Way overcarbonated, which rather obliterates what little character this bland wheat ale has. The finish has some wheaty moments before fading into Pop Rocks fizzy oblivion.
Number #200 from my trip to Oklahoma over the 4th, shipped a sixer back and just enjoyed one back in Wisconsin. On to the beer. Aroma is yeasty and bready with some citrus. The color is cloudy golden-orange with a very tall and rocky off-white head. Flavor is lightly sweet and much like the aroma: bready citrus. Some mineral flavors in the finish. Light body, high carbination and a watery texture. I’m not a fan of American wheat, this one was no exception. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Pours cloudy orange with lots of yeast, thick tannish head. Nose is musty, yeasty... like overripe fruit, peaches come to mind. I think my bottle was notso hotso... too much yeast flavor and overall not a good wheat taste. omhper (25095) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Bottled, thanks beerhandy! Muddy orange with rich but brief head. Estery caramel aroma. Sweet and soft with aromatic crystal malt character surrounded by toffee. Low bitterness. Decidedly the best Oklahoman beer I’ve had... lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Aroma: sweet fruitiness, with some peaches and lemons, also, some cracked wheat
denSMSgt (1) - Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2005 does not count
Appearance: hazy yellow, small white head, little lacing
Flavor: crushed wheat, slight fruitiness (of lemons)
Palate: unfiltered wheat aftertaste, fairly satisfying for a wheat beer
Overall: well-made wheat
I’m not a huge wheat fan, but something about Choc really excites me! I will go out of my way to get a six-pack because of it’s great flavour. A cold Choc goes down great on a hot day! SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Thanks to mjames for sending this Oklahoma brew!
Huge creamy head of off white over a hazy dark yellow brew.
Lightly sweet and acidic from start to finish. Better than most American wheats, more like a German Hefe. Citrusy wheat bite. Very decent and refreshing hot weather brew. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Bottle from mjames. Hazy, orange amber in color. Large foamy whitish head. Foamy lacing. LIghtly fruity aroma, touches of sourness, bits of yeast. Light bodied and well carbonated. Wheaty, a bit citric? Some spiceyness. Fair. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2005
Pours a cloudy hazy golden orange with a thin, lightly-lacing white head. Dry, bready, mild barnyard aroma with a touch of floral hops and mild lager yeast. Lightly malty body is well carbonated, finishing dry and earthy. An interesting brew but has some strange off-flavors. Thanks to goldtwins for knocking Oklahoma off of my list of states I haven’t tried. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 3, 2005
Poured a very hazy yellow. Aroma was grapefruity/citrus but lightly as well as yeasty. Flavors were light..citrus and sweet with very little hops on finish. Actually was clean and not a bad at all. Would be a good summer session beer.
