Notes/Commercial Description:
Canebrake is crisp and smooth with a beautiful golden honey color. This refreshing American wheat style brew highlights sweet remnants of sugarcane with notes of honey, spice, and citrus on the finish. A new Louisiana tradition, Canebrake was the first commerical beer in the world brewed with local sugarcane syrup.

Poured into a weizen glass. Pours light golden with a thick eggshell colored head that dissipates slowly. There are lots of visible tiny streaming bubbles rising in the beer. There are faint aromas of wheat and barley. The smell is mildly sweet and there's virtually no discernable hop aroma. The beer has flavors of wheat and barley malt and some mild sweetness. There are some mild grassy hops in the flavor. Overall, the flavors are pretty mellow. The body is light with strong carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and the drinkability is high. This is a good beer.

A-clear golden amber, lots of small CO2 bubbles-thin white head
S-not very aromatic a bit of sweet malts
T-a unique taste. Sweet and pale malts-tastes like barley with a bit of a spicy hop finish
M-medium bodied with lots of carbonation. A bit of a lingering finish
O-an ok beer-weak on any wheat character and a bit over carbonated and bitter for me

Had this one while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a shaker. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, spice, subtle earth, and nutty. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty average brew. Nothing on this brew really stood out at all. Just not really a lot going on in this one that was even slightly above an average brew for the style. While it wasn’t terrible it just didn’t leave a lasting impression on my palate. Glad I got to try it, but I doubt I would go out of my way to do so again.

On tap at Bulldog's in New Orleans

A- pours clear and golden with a frothy white head, no lace

S- sugary, earthy malt, hay, very little hops

T- sweet sugar, barnyard hay, faint herbal hop, Finsihes malty with a slight wheat linger.

M- spritzy carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, medium body, goes down smooth.

O- a sweet, yet earthy brew. pretty drinkable but nothing really blew me away.

Poured into a snifter. Label says Best By: but then there's nothing after it.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that has a relatively sturdy head for a wheat beer then drops down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a couple small patches of surface foam. Slippery, non-resilient lacing leaves jagged streaks behind on the glass.

S- Has that fumey wheat smell you get with a lot of the lower grade APWAs. It's a rotten honey/white grape aroma I'm not a fan of.

T- Faint wheat malt that has stale bread in the aftertaste. Minimal bitterness. Almost tastes like an adjunct lager with a tinge of wheat and spice. Pretty weak overall.

M- Watery and dull with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Pretty lame representation of the style. Will not revisit.

Parish Canebrake has a thick, frothy, white head and a somewhat hazy, golden appearance with some lacing and not too many streaming bubbles. The aroma is of sweet malt and maybe sugar. Taste is of sweet bread, sugar, and a touch of bitterness, but not much. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Parish Canebrake finishes mellow and very refreshing. Overall, this is an excellent, sweet, flavorful beer. I strongly recommend it.

Had on draft at the Avenue Pub. Poured a lightly hazed copper-gold color with a light white head.

There are notes of sharp citrusy and herbal hops, as well as a sweet graininess and subtle banana.

The taste is sweet with a little alcoholic dryness. There is a pleasant bitterness from the hops, but the grainy/sweet malts are the backbone here. Overall, a decent brew. Medium-bodied with a relatively high carbonation level.
