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.

Another thanks but no thanks to rudzud.

Light airy head, mostly clear light honey color.

Nose bad fermented wheat like it sat in the sun, weird rubbery thing to it, weird burnt grassy thing, grainy thing too.

Taste ew, bad fermented hay grass, light rubber again and burnt weeds, almost like chewing on a dandelion, with some weird wheat but not a ton, little skunky like flavor, weird bitterness. Light copper taste. Finish slight dry syrupy, more bad fermented wheat and hay, weird rubbery.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall blech.

2.65/5  rDev -23.9%

Poured into a snifter

A: Golden amber with not much of a head, very little retention and very light lacing.

S: Light malts, grainy wheat

T: Watered down wheat with a few malts floating in the bayou. Very little sweetness. Just doesn't deliver.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation (the best part of the sip, sadly).

O: Recommended at Callandro's in Baton Rouge as a sessionable brew. As weak as a drought on a field of wheat. Avoid unless you just want to be bored.

3.01/5  rDev -13.5%

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.

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.

3.08/5  rDev -11.5%

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

3.2/5  rDev -8%

Poured into a pint glass.
I smelled the obvious some sugar cane, yeast, grain, lime.
I tasted the obvious sugar cane, wheat, acidic fruit, and some bitter hop notes in the finish.
The mouthfeel was light to medium body. Kind of sweet which makes me thirstier for something else. It is easy stuff to drink with a decent price tag.
