It’s To Damn Hot! Welcome to Atlanta!
This category is your summer beer. It is sitting in the park in +100F weather. It is Turner Field in the Summer. It is light, refreshing and great ice cold. The current winner is: Jailhouse’s Slammer Wheat

This beer comes from one of Atlanta’s newest brewers. Instantly, I thought of a wheat beer and mildly sweet and citrusy. The beer is an example of an American Wheat, sweet almost lemonadey (as opposed to a German Hefe which is dry). Nationally, this is the best version of an American Wheat I have had, which says a lot, it is a popular style here.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours and looks like a low carbonated pilsner.

Aroma: wheat with a hint of citrus.

Flavor: wheat, light hops, touch of citrus. Very good bitte/sweet balance.

Feel: light body with adequate carbonation.

O: a very nice and refreshing American style pale wheat than leans towards the light side. Enjoyed this more than expected.

Been wanting to try some beers from the new GA brewery for a while - finally had an opportunity at Outlaw's in McDonough, GA. Thanks to Glen at the brewery for pointing me in the right direction.

Pours a slightly hazy dark straw color with a half-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.

Smells of pilsner and pale malts mostly with hints of wheat twang and even lighter hints of light fruits.

Tastes similar to how it smells, although more light fruit flavors are present than the aromas intimate. Crisp pilsner malt flavors kick things off with mild amounts of wheat twang. Midway through the sip mild grassy flavors and hints of bananas enter into things and carry through to a crisp ending.

Mouthfeel is alright. It's got a nice thickness however the carbonation is a bit on the heavy side.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this is an easy-drinking beer however it doesn't exactly fit the bill as an American Wheat.

Poured into a New Belgium globe. This is my JHB beer and like the stout before it, take pride in yet another up and coming brewery in Georgia.

Upon pouring only half the bottle, I didn't notice haze or cloudiness. Bright head settled down to a thin, but consistent surface. A steady stream of bubbles works its way up from the bottom center of the glass, making a nice swirly on the surface. Great clean smell, suggests a brew with medium body and that it is! Clean taste, wheat grain with just enough hops to know they're there. Great balance, IMO. This is a easy drinking beer, one that I look forward to spending a good part of the summer with.

Alright, this has to be one of my favorite wheat beers around.

This beer has a typical wheat beer appearance to it, golden and cloudy.

The mouth feel is excellent.

Decent head retention when poured.

Overall a great gateway beer into the craft beer community.

Poured this out of a fresh growler. Not a ton of carbonation or head to this one.. Crystal golden color looks nice though I prefer my wheat beers to be hazy... Has a lot more flavor then most american wheat beers but that isn't saying much. Slightly sweet some very light hops, very clean light light banana. Very easy to drink could put this back on a hot summer day no problem. Better then most of the style just not my fav style.

Thanks to cpinto6 for this one.

Big growing erupting head fluffy few fingers light lacing, crystal clear golden water colored.

Nose tons of wheat, light lemon and citrus rind, hint of spices, hint of sweet malts.

Taste fluffy wheat, lackluster bland wheat flavors, light sticky sweet, light spices, hint lemon, light estery like bad flavor, sticky syrupy extract almost like flavors, light citrus. Finish is more of the slightly unpleasant syrupy flavor, super dry, lingering citrus.

Mouth is lighter bodied, tooons of carb.

Overall meh, not done very well, fake syrupy tasting, some light off flavors that I can't put a finger on and quite bland.
