All I can say about this one is that I tasted all 5% of the alchohol which isn’t a good thing. I would have thought this was much higher abv except for the thin mouthfeel. This had a wierd slightly sour metallic taste. Its local so I hope they continue to improve.
Bottle. Pours a golden red. Holy hell does this suck. After taste makes me gag. Took multiple sips and it kept getting worse. Just awful. [:31] wilnatp (717) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Pour is orange/brown with a white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Taste is metalic with some odd breadiness. Can’t really tell that it is a red or a wheat or a red wheat for that matter as the expected elements seem to be missing. The hops weren’t well balanced. oobawa (1736) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Weird things abound within Labry’s Red Wheat, but none of them are very tasty. Smells like a pilsner rather than a pale ale, a red ale, or a wheat ale. Tastes metallic yet with an odd funky heaviness, almost a briny sweetness, with an aspirin-like hop finish. Nothing brings this beer together, and the hops destroy the subtleties of the wheat. Skip this bottle. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Amber, maybe copper, in color with an off-white head. Wheat and bread are evident on the nose. A bit of metal and acetone, light fruit character, and quite a bit of water. The flavor is kind of watered down. Some malt flavor, minimal (if any) hops, and seltzer water seem to be the main components. A hint of grass in there for good measure.

Bottle at the Minneapolis Beer Fest . This ended up tasting a bit sour, with some wheat/yeast elements. Wasn’t terribly good. Atom (2572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bomber pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, slight hop spice, and clay. Tastes like a chemical mix of clay and pottery glaze? WTF. This is only my second beer from this brewer but I think I give up on them until I hear they’ve produced something that is at least drinkable. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bomber: Pour is slightly hazy reddish copper with a quick medium head.
aroma is flat maltiness. getting some malted wheat, something that could be banana-ish ester, and some sourness? Nothing I can identify as hoppiness on the nose per say.
Sorry to say it’s under carbonated, flavour is weird and certainly off. carboard-ish flat maltiness. Very little sweetness, somewhat sour caraway seed flavour.
Very dissapointing. Hate to have to be the first rating and have it end like this.
