A refreshing American style ale and oh so enjoyable on a hot Kansas summer day! Our most popular brew, we recommend this for those beginning to venture into the world of hand-crafted ales. Winter wheat malt is used to create a wonderful mild body with a hint of sweetness, and balanced with a dash of American hops. This beer is doubly refreshing when served with a lemon slice.

Part of a sampler at the brewery - pale yellow and clear color, very tasteless, apparently it’s their most popular, probably because it tastes exactly like Bud Light, highly carbonated, I couldn’t smell any hops. It didn't have much of a taste or smell at all.

Slightly murky yellow hue from the wheat proteins. The head settles into a dissapointing trace. Nothing special in aroma-- slight grain notes w/ a meager hop nose. Light bodied, but more so than a macrobrewed lager. Although it's typically bland in flavor, it's flavorful and crisp enough to prevent me from getting bored. It still needs a lemon, however. Finishes a bit sweet, since hop bitterness is just shy of balancing malt sweetness. An average example of an insipid style. If you ever visit Little Apple Brewery try the other beers.

Tasted as part of flight of 6 beers

Clear golden beer with minimal head, sweeting aroma, nice mouthfeel

Taste is not bad, but not good either. I'm not a big fan of this style (wheat beer that isn't hefe) but to me it lacked complexity. Maybe it would be improved with a lemon.

Pours absolutely crystal clear. It has a good head, but it dissipates fast.

The aroma is rather faint. What little there is is bready, but not much else.

The first flavor that hits me, unfortunately, is a buttery diacetyl flavor. Beyond that, I can't taste much anything in here at all. Like the RIley's Red from the same brewer, it isn't bad, it just isn't much anything at all. In fact, the brewery claims this is their most popular beer, with Riley's Red also being popular. It's easy to see why, as there is nothing here to challenge a macro drinker.

While I list Riley's as my least favorite on my trip, this one ives it a run for its money, as neither offer much to a beer drinker.

A - Poured a somewhat cloudy, golden-yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head. It left little to no lace.

S - It smelled of wheat, yeast and clove. The was a slight fruity aroma.

T - Good sweet wheat taste with a fruity kick. Some subtle yeast flavors, too.

M - It was crisp and very sharp on the tongue. A light bodied ale.

D - This is a nice wheat ale. Not the best option at Little Apple but satisfying on a hot, humid summer day.

I had a couple of the Wildcat Wheat tonight and wasn't impressed. They are off to a good start, but still need some work to improve their beers. Compared to other wheat beers, it's just average, nothing special at all.
In wheat beers, smell is very important. There was very little sweet smell and none of the typical clover smell or taste.
And it was served in a pint ale glass, not the tall Hefeweisen Glass that most brewers use.
