Sampled this past Saturday on 10/4/14 with my buddy. He brought over two 16 ounce cans from a case he bought down in Missouri a couple of months back. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a thumb=print handled glass stein.

Pours a deep mahogany in color with some reddish highlights with a thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is light but is of dark bread with some malts and nuts. Pretty much the same for the taste with a slightly bitter finish for the black walnuts and much stronger than the aroma suggests. Not your average wheat beer taste. Very smooth and is a good tasting brew. Between lighter and medium bodied with perfect carbonation.

Piney River Black Walnut Wheat has an extremely thick, beige, fizzy, head, a mostly clear, bubbly, brown appearance, and minimal lacing left on the glass. The aroma is full and of sweet bread crust, some brown bread yeast, and possibly walnut. Taste is of sweet, syrupy malt, brown bread, maybe some nut, and no real bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a touch slick, and Piney River Black Walnut Wheat finishes on the wet side and highly drinkable.

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.
