A - pours a reddish amber with one finger fluffy white head. Good retention

S - Lighter aroma. Mainly malts and caramel. Slight nuttiness to it.

T - Great flovar. Much stronger than the aroma. Not a typical wheat. Lts malts coffee, choclate. Slight bitterness perhaps from the walnuts?

M - very very very smooth. No burn whatsoever. Reminds me of drinking a milkshake. Medium bodied

O - A very solid drinkable beer. Love the flavor. My first walnut beer. Was impressed with my first beer from this brewery. Cant wait to try others.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, hint of nut, hint of hop, hint of roasted malt, and slight mushroom aromas. Fits the style of an American Dark Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of nut, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of mushroom, lol. Overall, weak appearance and lacking complexity, but good aroma and body.
