BEER INFO

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

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.

Had this beer recently at the brewery and also in cans. Was best on tap, could definitely tell it was fresher and got more hints of basil. Great either way though, low ABV and super easy to drink. Crisp, light, and refreshing.

I had this at their Barley Oak rollout party and touring the NOLA brewery not long after it came out. I'm normally not a huge wheat beer drinker, but this is really nice.

It's color is light straw-like with good head and lacing.

The aroma is of wheat, spice, citrus.

Flavor is very approachable. The lemon basil is in just the right amount to balance the wheat/yeast flavors without overpowering. I can down a few of these without thinking about it.

If I was a big wheat beer drinker I'd probably have this even higher.

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!
