3.5/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Lightly cloudy daffodil yellow with sheets of bubbles leading up to an ivory colored crown that could have more interesting surface topography. The suds last acceptably long, but don't decorate the glass with much lace.

The nose, although easily identifiable as belonging to a witbier, is more subtle than most. Quite a bit of tangy wheat peaks through, along with a smidgen of citrus zest and very little coriander. Warming helps a fair amount.

Stallostown Wheat tastes a little better than it smells, but we still aren't talking 'knock your socks off' ale. It tastes fairly well-constructed, which appears to be par for the course when it comes to Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus.

Untoasted wheat is still the flavor focal point, with a pleasant rush of citrus peel (major) and spicy coriander (minor) at the midway point of the mouthful. Bitter and tangy-tart lead the way, with sweet trailing a short distance behind. Must be both generous hops and a fresh bottle.

The mouthfeel is okay with respect to size and the bubbles are lightly stinging, which is fine. Honestly, this attribute doesn't make a huge impression either way.

Stallostown, Ohio (named after its founder, Francis Stallo) became Minster, Ohio in 1836. Minster 1832 appears on the label for some unknown reason. Must be the boyhood home of one of the brewers. In any case, Stallostown Wheat is a decent witbier that isn't likely to turn any heads.

Poured int a pint glass on 7/1/10

Cloudy & dense pineapple color. Yeast sediment drifts to the bottom. One finger of white foam fizzles away over a few minutes. Bubbles on the inside of the glass slowly release to the top. Small ring of retention, not much lace.

Toasted wheat with a dry, musty yeast make up the base of the aroma. It's accentuated with coriander spice as well as orange pith & peel. Good aromatic blend.

Upon taking a sip, coriander is revealed to be the most immediate flavor; orange peel is actually quite subtle. Regardless, it has a bit of juiciness about it. Not overly spicy. Toasted wheat grain makes up a sturdy backdrop, becoming more apparent with warmth. Touch of yeast.

Medium-light in body with lower than moderate carbonation. On the whole, it's rather smooth. Finishes clean; just a bit of toasty wheat & citrus pith linger.

Stallostown Wheat secures in my mind the notion that Elevator does well when brewing with wheat (even if this want originally their recipe). Worth a shot.

Bought a single.

Pours a very cloudy, light honey color with a 1 finger head.

Very little lacing

Smells are faint, mostly oranges with a touch of spice. Has a very fruity (oranges)with light spices

Nice mouthfeel, medium carbonation with the lingering taste of coriander and oranges.

This is a very good beer but would be better in the summer.
