Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
“7th Street Wheat” started out as our Summer seasonal, but cue to its popularity has made its own place in our year round ales. Named in honor of the 7th Street wharf across the street from the brewery, this filtered wheat ale is light-bodied American style with pounds of fresh lemon-basil added after fermentation. The light citrus taste with a hint of spicy herb on the back goes well with almost any seafood dish, and from what we hear, is a favorite at bars as a stand alone refreshing beer.

Clear light golden pour with a small white head that fades quickly. Funky aroma with a hint of lemon and grass. Taste follows the nose with lemon and grass flavors. Can also taste bit of spice and pepper.

Smells lemon, grassy, wheat, malty and herbal.

Taste lemony wheat. Light sweet and light grassy. Finish is semi-dry with a bready linger. Lighter body and medium carbonation.

An Arizona summer beer if there ever was one! light, fruity, spicy, with a touch of citrus and very little basil. Quenches my thirst and leaves me wanting another!

Pours a slightly hazy bright yellow golden color with white fizzy head. Just like the name says, there is lemon and basil on the nose, a little other citrus as well; follows on to the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with lemon zest flavors.

Pours a clear deep straw/pale gold with a hint of chill haze producing barely 1.5 fingers of white, shortlived head. I wish I could have it on tap as my canned example leaves little lacing. Aroma is delicate & clean: lemon, mineral, grass, cracker, wheat, some herbal & grain hints. Taste is somewhat shandy like & faintly perfumey: lemon/lemon zest, grass, vegetal (basil?), pale & cracker malt, floral & clean but thin wheat & grain. A little hop bittering & the basil flavor comes through most intensely in the finish. Aftertaste is lemon, mineral, vegetal & faintly bitter. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, crisp, clean & dry, dancing with a peppery bite across the tongue in the finish. Light as moon beams and fairies wings, this is a flavorful & exceptional summer wheat beer (that I could drink anytime) with a low ABV. It is very, very drinkable!
