BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA)
Louisiana, United States
nolabrewing.com

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.

Taste is lemon and wheat. This is an above average, clean, light bodied wheat beer that is sweet. Nice and refreshing on a hot day. Perfect beer to sip on tap while waiting out a passing shower. That said, I do prefer others in the style.

Had this one at the source while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a NOLA shaker. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, fruit, and banana. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, and banana. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. While this isn’t my favorite style out there this one still managed to do a nice job of being balanced. I just wish this one would have been a little more robust on some of the fruit flavors and aromas as this could have definitely been a standout for the style. Definitely worth your time trying this one if you are a fan of the style.

NOLA 7th Street Lemon Basil Wheat has a thin, white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, some lazy bubbly streams, and narrow lacing left behind. A gray sediment cloud was evident, after I swished and poured in the bottom can contents. The aroma is of faint white wheat bread and spice, and the taste is similarly low profile (dull, if you will). Lots of water, some basil, and some white pepper are picked up in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and NOLA 7th Street Lemon Basil Wheat finishes mostly dry and very highly drinkable (like water).

A bit more body than the average American Pale wheat. Light white-bread wheat malt flavor, with a touch of citrus in the background Finish was just a bit dry. Not particularly flavorful, but thirst-quenching and a good accompanyment for food - particularly fried seafood.

Pours a crystal-clear yellow/amber with a dense white head. Little visible carbonation.

Smells of lightly roasted grains, with a hint of sweet and light fruitiness.

The taste also contains the lightly roasted flavors and a tart and slightly bitter feel. Slight astringent quality. Overall very pleasant. Medium bodied with a grainy texture. Really great drinkability.

Cloudy apricot hue, with a thin white head.

Light aromas almost exclusively of wheat and lemon.

Lemony wheat is your primary flavor here. While the basil is mostly in the background, it does offer a peppery, zesty kick on rare occasion. Big, buttery yet tangy sweetness kicks in, with a nutty, almost cheesy funk, and cracker.

Soft and fizzy.

On draft from growler into clear plastic (poolside) cup. This is a solid American pale wheat ale, great for enjoying all afternoon at the pool, especially at that low ABV.
