Had this on tap at the Brewery/BBQ on Kalamath. Walked 2 miles from downtown to get there!

A - REddish brown color with about a 1 finger head

S - Can't really detect anything in the smell, which was weird because of the taste

T - Absolute taste explosion. Smooth wheat combined with hints of caramel and malts. So many tastes going on at once. Great combo of wheat, caramel, and malts.

On tap tonight at the Breckenridge barbeque spot on Kalamath. Our server told us it was brewed for a restaurant back in Texas (or Tennesee, he wasn't sure) and that they threw it on tap. A pretty decent wheat beer all around, if you are not really looking for a wheat beer. Somewhat sweet, with a little cherry, a little caramel and maybe some spiciness from the wheat. Refreshing and drinkable.

On-tap at Flying Saucer in Raleigh served a crisp brown with a decent khaki head that slowly diminishes to a ring but leaves great lacing on the glass. Aroma is some dark malts and wheat. The taste is an interesting amount of dried fruits and dark malts with mild spice, almost like a light weizenbock. The beer is on the light side of medium with decent coronation. This is certainly a unique beer, one worthy of celebrating the 15th anniversary of my favorite beer bar chain!

On-tap at the brewery's anniversary party. The bartender referred to this as a Red Wheat.

A: Deep garnet with a short lived cream head. Leaves bits of lace.

S: Smells mostly like a Red Ale with red grape, dry straw and light citrus aromas. Traditional wheat beer aromas are absent, outside of a touch of biscuit.

T: Starts with a nice fruitiness from currants and red grapes. The wheat is there, but very subdued. Bitterness comes on with a light grapefruit and lemon bite. Finishes with lingering straw and citrus flavors.

M: The body is quite light and has the right amount of fizz.

D: This is a nice session beer. The wheat seems more like a lightener, rather than a contributor to the flavor. Overall, a pretty decent beer.
