American Pale Wheat Ale |  4.90% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This American style unfiltered wheat beer is great anytime. The aroma is pleasantly grainy and sweet with a touch of honey. The appearance is pale yellow with minimal clarity. The flavor is not overpowering, and is quite quaffable. Honey Wheat has a low hop bitterness that is balanced out by the honey malt used in the mash. The mouth feel is smooth and crisp, and has medium to high carbonation. This beer is always a refreshing treat, and is available at our brewery year round.

Rough filtering with 11 micron filter leaves enough yeast to give a slightly cloudy light gold Wheat beer with a persistant white head and lace. Malty sweetness is emphasized with Weyerman Honey malt that gives a very realistic honey flavor and aroma. Medium body and higher carbonation combine to increase Mouthfeel.

The ultimate session beer with lots of flavor.

This honey ale sits a light straw clear color with a light honey aroma. The flavors of honey and malty are immediately apparent, but do not over-power the senses. The hint of sharp spice helps to round off a very drinkable and well-built honey ale.

On tap at the brew-pub. This is one of the more popular M. Street brews. Light, golden hue with a great off-white head. Very thin honey and hop based nose. Up front, this is bordering on a medium bodied beer; wheat flavorings mixed with, to no surprise, some honey. Large malt based body. Very one sided, yet easy to drink, great on a hot day plus it matches well with most meals at the pub!

Spring beer to go with Cardinal baseball - decent summer session brew. Pours a hazy golden yellow, low level white head. Light aroma of malted wheat in the aroma and taste, along with easy hints of the sweet honey.

Crisp and clean brew, although it did have just a touch of harshness in the finish. But not enough to really distract from the overall good flavor. I could drink this one all afternoon with no problem.

girlfriend ordered this one here we go

has an average looking light golden color to it without much of a head on it

smell is dominated by wheat, little else gets through, no honey at all

taste is decent again no honey but still a decent hefe

mouthfeel is a bit watery but not surprisingly

drinkability is high, not too strong but plenty good

on tap poured into a pub glass at the brewpub in St. Louis. pours a clear amber color with a half finger of white head, moderate lacings and mild retention.

aroma is light and bready, with pale malts and a distinct honey-sweetness. rather ethereal in the nose.

taste is of light grain with the same honey-sweetness from the aroma and a subtle malt base with distant caramel. the honey lingers well after the fact.

mouthfeel is light bodied and rather sweet. the aftertaste is of honey and mild grain. could be a bit less sweet overall.

drinkability is mild. this is a sweet brew that ends up relying on the honey to sustain the profile a bit too much, ending up with an overly sweet malty beverage.

This honey wheat poured to give a cloudy, golden beer with no head. There was no aroma detectable from beginning to end. The taste was dry with the flavor of wheat. The mouthfeel was good. The drinkability was good, but perhaps this would have benefitted from a lemon slice. Not a bad effort, but perhaps this batch lacked a little something.

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight honey, strong grain, and slight citrus. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean with a low carbonation level. Tastes of slight citrus, strong grain, hint of honey, pale malt, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good feel and appearance, but weak in body and aroma.

The final beer review from this trip, with a stop at Morgan Street Brewery in St Louis.

Golden color and a bit hazy, not a lot of head or lace.

Great yeastiness, malty with light spices. Not a lot of honey.

Body was nice, pretty good for a wheat ale and quite easy to drink.

It's not an outstanding wheat but it ain't bad either.

Had this beer many times on the Thursday $1 pitcher nights at Morgan Street in St. Louis. Poured into a clear glass, the appearance is somewhat cloudy with a blonde hue. If you're looking for a wheat beer that is full of flavor, try elsewhere. But if you're just looking for a nice, lightly honey-tasting and hardly aromatic brew to go with your meal or kick off a night on the town, then I recommend it.
