Poured this American Pale Wheat Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This wheat ale poured a thick white head- Over carbonated - retention was average and it it left ample lacing. The aroma consisted of malted wheat and plenty of lemon citrus hop notes. Medium bodied, the ale had a wheat base, lemon rind and bitter floral hops- Dry finish. Normally a boring style in my view, Schlafly did an excellent job of hopping up this ale and creating a unique twist to a classic American beer style. Prost!

Pours out to a patchy white head that lasts, a few narrow lace garters down the glass and cloudy, yeasty light golden color. Aroma is spicy, minty, floral hops and a bit of sharp wheat bite. Flavor really captures the signature characteristics of two styles (hoppy pale ales and American wheat beers) with a rush of hop flavor followed with a bready, grainy, slightly citrus finish. Mouthfeel is excellent. Overall a good call. If you want a "normal" wheat beer, grab a Boulevard Wheat, but for what it is, it is very good.
Basically they took a smooth and luscious wheat beer and dry-hopped the hell out of it to get the dominant aroma and taste of hops without extracting the bitterness. This is an ideal beer for those who love the smell and taste of hops but can do without the intense bitterness of an IPA or even an APA.
