7th Street Wheat - Lemon Basil7th Street Wheat - Lemon Basil
Notes: “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.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head that had good retention and left a little lacing.

Subtle aroma of wheat and lemon with some spices in the background. Didn't seem very pronounced but still good overall.

No surprises in the taste, again very clean notes of wheat all around with lemon and a little orange. Some slight hints of pepper and cloves also show up toward the end.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation. As a summer beer, I definitely think this is a hit. Very light and refreshing, easy to drink in the hot New Orleans climate, and could make for a nice sessionable beer. Supposed to be around until October so I'll be enjoying this as much as I can while it lasts.

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Clear pale amber hue, great looking lacing all the way down. Lemon oil, zest, faint fresh herb, bread malt, and a floral tone in the nose ... the palate mirrors these. Very smooth with a bit of refreshing crispness. As a wheat beer it is very drinkable, a great base for the lemon basil flavor. One of the more flavorful and well put together flavors wheat beers out there.

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.

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.
