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.

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).

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.

Pours light hazy, pale gold. Short, foamyy, white, short-lived head.

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.

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.

-lager glass. Lemon basil added. Looks good til 04.19.18. Consumed 07.24.18. 40 days and the coal ran out.

A: Pale hazy orange coloring, with a light spacious rise of carbonation. The head quickly fell, the glass remained clean of its influence.

S: Sweet ginger ale like aroma, with wet basil. Sweetened grapefruit and wheat add support. Nice strength overall, spicy, sweet, like a lemon flavored ginger ale or shandy.

T: Sparkling ginger ale/grapefruit-lemon flavor. Strong support base of wheat gives this a dry base, along with some hefe like yeastiness. Sweet, spicy flavor, ginger/grapefruit with a basil twang upon the swallow.

M: Nice crispness, tingly, soda like, with a medium body.

O: Overall drinks a like a sweet grapefruit-ginger ale or shandy. Crisp wheat summer time drink. Refreshing, sparkling. More alcohol beverage like.
