Poured from can into pint glass. Lots of suspended flocculated yeast, seriously two cans poured and both were snow globes. Bottom of can says it was canned march 12...so maybe four months later this puppy is past its prime. Not a strong hop character flavor or aroma wise, just stale cracker flavor and nose. Kind of disappointed with this offering.

Looks every part the wheat with it’s absolutely gorgeous bright yellow body—which is hazy and even has particles floating about—and massive, white, fluffy head.

Smell throws me a bit as this is where I expected it to smell like an IPA. It actually smells more of maybe Noble hops, or even like pilsner yeast, or perhaps its Sorachi Ace hops because it really strikes me as a lemony quality. It’s pretty yeasty, and there are hops there, they’re just not the kind I was expecting given the bottle description.

Whoa, this beer is crazy attenuated…very carbonated, thin body, and bone dry. That works pretty well for a summer quencher, but even most wheats have way more body and texture than this. I count it as a fault. As a result, the flavor is lacking as well. Not much going on till the finish, and there it's light crackery malt and a sharp lemon finish.

Not impressed by this beer and, unfortunately, not impressed once again by Schlafly. I think they missed the mark on this “hoppy wheat.” I think the yeast went too crazy. There was a noticeably bigger pop when opening the bottle—a sound I somewhat cringe at from having gusher homebrews—so I’m fairly confident that’s what’s going on here. To be fair, I should try another bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A cloudy rusty cantaloupe rind colored body holds up a nice foamy cream colored head. Very little recession in the head. Light foamy lacing.

Aroma: Malty and spicy with woody cedar notes.

Taste: Just like the aroma, very thick with malts, spiced cedar, and maybe a faint touch of citrus in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick for a wheat beer.

Overall: Not sure if I understand this beer. Thick and spicy.

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!
