Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An American wheat beer with a Belgian inspiration, Sundown Wheat aims to blend the best of two worlds. This refreshingly light beer is brewed with American wheat, two-row barley, and a touch of flaked oats. It is delicately hopped with American Sterling hops and spiced in the tradition of Belgian wit beers, using coriander and dried sweet orange peel.

A - clairity has just a hint of fogginess. No head no lacing.
Color is half way between lemonaid and melted butter.

S - lemon zest. Ipa like hops.

T - citrus like lemonaid past it's expiration.

M - very loose and thin, watery.

D - overall pretty bland and uninspired.

This is probably a perfect example of a wheat beer. That said, it tastes like water to me. Just not my bag at all.
Light lager style color, scant white head, cloudy, almost non-existent smell and taste

Thanks to coldmeat23 for this one. Shared with the wife with some delicious home-made Mediterranean food. Served in a Half Acre pint glass.

A - Soda-like carbonation. A very loud finger of white foam quickly sizzles away leaving no lace, collar, cap, haze, or bubbles. Unfiltered dark golden urine or apricot nectar colored body.

S - Wheat, coriander, clove, some orange peel citrus character. Generic lightly malted grain with light notes of honey. Some other nebulous spices in the periphery.

T - Taste is more bland with a slight playdough character to it mixed with the sweet malt and grain. Again, there's a faint hint of orange peel before transitioning to a yeasty finish and aftertaste. Not much in the way of spices.

M - It burns, it burns! Too much carbonation - it's like drinking Pepsi or something. Lightly sticky finish and a light crisp body that's appropriate for 4.7%.

D - I was able to finish a bomber (mostly on my own, my wife moved on to something else pretty quickly). This would have been much easier to drink with half as much carbonation. Pretty mediocre, with some serious flaws.

Wheat front with a flowery finish slight grainy hints.

Taste Rating in Words: Just imagine you went to the park and at the park there was a rock you could lick with "tastes of the park".

Well that was about the easiest wax cap I've ever encountered.

A little taste of Oklahoma thanks to russpowell. Kept in the fridge ever since. :)

Poured into a lush-sized tulip. Bottle pop was less the subtle. The pour spritzed like soda. A long, but thin off-white/ashy head comes & goes, leaving the beer naked & looking flat. A lightly steeped tea colored body, just slightly murky.

Initial smell is peppery wheat & apple, followed by a good bit of lemon, & then honey. The end of it is consumed in a macerated gas of leaves & twigs sprinkled with a little coriander. Smells a little big for 4.7%.

Taste is initially hampered by the intense carbonation. Salty wheat, & very doughy(but lacking in body). Mild, muddled spices, menthol & copper sort of hop effect, & some lingering yeasty bread on the finish. Feels lagered.

The prickly carbonation grew on me, but the menthol wore out it's welcome early, & there just wasn't too much to focus on in total. Burps up like 7-UP... I think American-styled wheat beers are very spotty, but at the same time, I don't think I've ever turned one down. ;)
