COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What can we say about this one? A bit of luck meets years of homebrewing experience? When it came time to test out our brewing system for the first time, we needed something that we wouldn’t feel too bad about dumping if we had equipment troubles. One of our brewers had enough malt in his homebrew stock, which unfortunately wasn’t being used due to all his spare time being spent helping get Six Row started, for a batch. However, it was a bit of a motley collection of ten (yes, ten!) malts, everything from wheat to pale to crystal to aromatic to our namesake. With a little supplemental malt from the local homebrew store, some Cascade and Goldings hops and a blend of US ale yeasts, the Whale (wheat/pale) ale was born. Pale copper in color, this is an interesting beer that has already been enjoyed by many. Let us know how you would describe it.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks bro. Clear, hazy golden orange appearance with an off white head. Bitter orange, citrusy, tangy, lightly spicy, wheat malty aroma. Fairly spicy, wheat malty, somewhat grassy, bitter hoppy flavor. Pretty good American Wheat Ale.

22 ounce from Wine and Cheese Place. Orange pour. Bit of yeast in the nose. Orange and tangerine. Nice wheat ale that is not a wit or basic wheat.

There's a lot going on in this pleasing mongrel beer, but it manages to be well-balanced and bright with a yummy aftertaste. It's part pale ale and wheat ale and yet this Frankenstein is a thing all its own. Good job, Six Row. I had this at their brewery in St. Louis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is akin to a hefe. As the ingredients list might indicate, there is a lot going on in this beer and pretty much all of it good. The hops are citrus and floral and are steady. Some nice fruit, and wheat. Flavorful and interesting.

Tasted 7/16/10. Sample #3 from the Brewpub. Mildly hazy and lively with a golden orange hue. Bone white ring of head. Mild aromas of grassy hops and toast. Medium bodied with a nice duality between the bitter pale body and the wheat smoothness. Dry finish with a good amount of dry earthy hops. Good tart and bitter hop flavor with a toasty malt body. Bright yet dry. Solid drinker and a great Summertime sipper.

On tap at Six Row brewpub. Hazy amber with a thin of-white head. Aroma of crystal malt, wheat and a decent amount of citrus and fruit. Taste of lemon, citrus and wheat with a light bitterness and finishes up with mild citrus zest.
