Notes/Commercial Description:
“7th Street Wheat” started out as our Summer seasonal, but cue to its popularity has made its own place in our year round ales. Named in honor of the 7th Street wharf across the street from the brewery, this filtered wheat ale is light-bodied American style with pounds of fresh lemon-basil added after fermentation. The light citrus taste with a hint of spicy herb on the back goes well with almost any seafood dish, and from what we hear, is a favorite at bars as a stand alone refreshing beer.

I had this at their Barley Oak rollout party and touring the NOLA brewery not long after it came out. I'm normally not a huge wheat beer drinker, but this is really nice.

It's color is light straw-like with good head and lacing.

The aroma is of wheat, spice, citrus.

Flavor is very approachable. The lemon basil is in just the right amount to balance the wheat/yeast flavors without overpowering. I can down a few of these without thinking about it.

If I was a big wheat beer drinker I'd probably have this even higher.

Pours a crystal-clear yellow/amber with a dense white head. Little visible carbonation.

Smells of lightly roasted grains, with a hint of sweet and light fruitiness.

The taste also contains the lightly roasted flavors and a tart and slightly bitter feel. Slight astringent quality. Overall very pleasant. Medium bodied with a grainy texture. Really great drinkability.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head that had good retention and left a little lacing.

Subtle aroma of wheat and lemon with some spices in the background. Didn't seem very pronounced but still good overall.

No surprises in the taste, again very clean notes of wheat all around with lemon and a little orange. Some slight hints of pepper and cloves also show up toward the end.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation. As a summer beer, I definitely think this is a hit. Very light and refreshing, easy to drink in the hot New Orleans climate, and could make for a nice sessionable beer. Supposed to be around until October so I'll be enjoying this as much as I can while it lasts.

On tap at Walk On's in Lafayette, LA.

A: Pours a clear straw/yellow color. A one finger bubbly white head forms, but recedes in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: Fairly neutral in the nose. Light grains, wheat, and light fruit.
T: Much more going on here. Husky wheat, grains, and a very nice tart fruity flavor. Tart lemons and slightly herbal and tea like. Very enjoyable.
M/D: A lighter body. This Seems just a bit thin and watery. I wish it was a bit more crisp. Very easy to drink. Something I can quaff several of without a thought.

Very enjoyable. I really like the tartness. If this had a bit more body, it would be great. As is it is still very nice. A good beer to be drinking in NOLA.

Served on tap at the brewery in a pint glass

Appearance: yellow with a 1 finger head; great retention

Smell: Like a wheat thrasher doing its job

Taste: Bring on the wheat and throw in some lemons on the side. The lemon basil (harvested on the North Shore, I'm told) gives it just the kick you're looking for.

Mouthfeel: light yet zesty carbonation

Overall: A great, light session beer, perfect for post-yard work or just chillin' on the back porch. Looking forward to enjoying some of these babies in cans.

Had this one at the source while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a NOLA shaker. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, fruit, and banana. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, and banana. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. While this isn’t my favorite style out there this one still managed to do a nice job of being balanced. I just wish this one would have been a little more robust on some of the fruit flavors and aromas as this could have definitely been a standout for the style. Definitely worth your time trying this one if you are a fan of the style.

A bit more body than the average American Pale wheat. Light white-bread wheat malt flavor, with a touch of citrus in the background Finish was just a bit dry. Not particularly flavorful, but thirst-quenching and a good accompanyment for food - particularly fried seafood.
