Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of wheat, light citrus. Taste is heavy on the wheat, light spices, hints of citrus, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer.

Another wheat beer, this one from my home state. I have it every time I come back. This beer smells just like the wheat fields that I drove past on the way to school when I was younger, and I have to give it credit just for nostalgia's sake. It's light, with a subdued fruity sweetness on the taste, and actually a fair bit of smokiness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is definitely heavier than most other wheat beers. I enjoy it quite a bit, really.

Pours to a bubbly white head that does not lace and a hazy yellow-gold color. Aroma is grainy, sharp wheat and a touch of floral hops. Flavor is light and almost macro-like with a tangy wheat and malt base and grassy hop in the finish. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is where it should be. Overall a lackluster brew but not bad at all.

Good beer for the price. Got a sixxer on the way home. Smells good and heard good ratings so I was eager to try it and let me say it is some good stuff. Way better than boulevards unfiltered wheat. Haven't seen it around much. Heard the brewery got taken out by a tornado in Moore Oklahoma.

Definitely worth trying if you can find it

A: The beer is hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of grain and some hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there are also some hints of sweetness, which seem to most resemble stone fruit.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be slightly heavier on the mouthfeel compared to other pale wheat ales, and I suspect this might have something to do with the fact that it used Oklahoma Red Wheat. I found it to be quite interesting.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Orange with a hint of haze. Thin, bubbly head dissipates very fast. Man, it smells like an Oklahoma wheat field in the summer. It carries over to taste, with a hint of malt and lemon. Light on the tongue with pleasant carbonation. Solid and balanced beer. Would be even better in the warmer months.

Does anyone know if they still make this?

I bought a sixxer several months ago and have not seen it anywhere since then. Not going to lie I was hesitant to buy beer made here in oklahoma but I was actually impressed with it. Not a bad tasting brew at all.

A-amber color with a white/tan head that lasted awhile.

S-pleasant wheat beer smell

T-excellent taste of wheat, hazelnuts, and a hint of citrus barely noticed it. I recommend anyone to try this

Poured into a pint glass.

It's a hazy gold color. Lots of bubbles in the beer. White head that quickly turns into whispy lacing.

It's got some citrus notes, some wheat sweetness.

Wheat beer, a nice citrus character from the hops. Not too bitter, not too sweet.

Kind of thin, the carbonation is nice though.

Disappointed with the thinness and the head retention. Pleased with the flavor. This beer's so so.

Served on-tap in a tall flute-like glass. A pilsener glass or even a pint might have been better. Typical look of a wheat - pale yellow cloudy body with a small white head. Very little retention or lacing.

Fairly muted aroma overall, but definite notes of wheat, lemon, and a touch of peppery spice.

Not much improvement in the flavor, but it's not terrible. Again, some flavors that would be expected with the wheat and a little spice, but the citrus flavor is where this one falls down. More lemon than orange and very sweet, which detracts from the flavor mix.

Light mouthfeel and easy enough to drink. If it weren't for the sweetness, this would be a decent beer.

A: Evenly hazy pale straw color. Poured a 2 finger bubbly white head with fair retention to a thick skim. Laced in wavy rings.

S: Wheat malt. Faint light fruit and lemony citrus. Muted peppery spice.

T: Sweet wheat malt and citrus consistent with the nose. Citrussy tartness and mild bitter make for a light, refreshing finish. Not really crisp as carbonation was relatively moderate.

M: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Refreshing and light on the palate; lower carbonation than many wheat beers.

O: A couple things not quite complementary or balance, but an easily drinkable beer.

a gift from Ragingbull.
pouring at cellar temp into a pint glass.
The beer pours a bright clear gold color, similar to a pilsener in color and even bleached white fizzy head. Foams up about 1 cm and fades to a sturdy surface layer that slowly evaporates to only a wispy layer.

Aroma is mild with some grain and a bit of malt sweetness, maybe a little spicy hop note mixed in but overall the aroma is barely noticeable unless I stick my nose all the way in the glass.

First sip reveals a light crisp body with fine fizzy carbonation. Easy drinker so far.
Flavor is mild as well, some grainy husky notes, a bit of malt sweetness, and some spicy hop on the finish, just as the nose advertised. All very mild in depth, but no major flaws. The label says they make session beers, which is fine, but I am kind of bored with this one after the first bottle, why have another for a session?

I wasn't impressed at all by the bottled version of this, but after a week straight of upper 90s temperatures I thought it might deserve another evaluation.

Pours up with a thick, clouded, banana peel color and an inch of creamy head that falls to a small dusting of bubbles about halfway through. The cloudiness is about on par with a German Hefeweizen after the yeast has been dumped.

Some lemongrass and ripened apple accent the bready, wheaty base. This one is definitely balanced away from the hop bitterness at 14 BUs. Clean, with a nice level of carbonation. The high percentage of wheat gives the perception of a hefty body.

I don't necessarily care for Mustang's approach to brewing, but it's hard to deny that two or three of these go down pretty easy on a hot summer night.

This beer enjoyed on tap at Texadelphia in Norman, OK. The beer pours a clear golden color with a Ginger of foamy head that quickly dissipated and left no lacing or retention. The aroma has hints of citrus and wheat malt. The taste starts with some wheat malt notes and then has note of citrus and finishes with some skunkiness. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth and finishes clean. Overall your standard mass produced light wheat beer. Wouldn't really have again.

A - Poured out a clear, amber color with gold highlights. It had a one-finger head of white foam. It left little to no head.

S - It smelled of wheat, clove and some spice.

T - It tasted of sweet caramel, wheat and a slight bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay wheat ale. It was easy drinking and quite sessionable.

12 oz bottle. Cloudy gold color. White fizzy head disappears very quickly. Not much else going on.

Grainy aroma. Some faint citrus. Earthy hops.

Grainy malt character, slightly tart and juicy. Faint citrusy notes. Earthy bitterness, but balanced well.

Light body, good carbonation. Not a whole lot going on here. Refreshing. Alcohol hidden well.

First sampled from the tap at a beerfest in Moore, OK. The brewer's at the tent said this was made to go head to head with Boulevard wheat, a valid idea for the hot Oklahoma summers. The sample I had back then was right what the brewer's were shooting for.... better than Boulevard Wheat. The following is from the bottle.

It pours a golden straw color, very cloudy. The head was minimal and kept to a film with some bubbles around the edges.

The nose is strong of pale grains and warming wheat tones. Slight bitter earthy hop flavors are in there giving it a balancing tart quality.

The flavor is no heavyweight, but what it is.... is tasty and refreshing. Sweet honey and grass lingers until the long finish is taken over by a stern yeast and banana aftertaste.

The body is medium to light, with plenty of carbonation, very sharp. The finish is a bit dry, the finishing touches on excellent drinkability. However, I do remember this being a bit better fresh from the tap.

Served a hazy golden with a thin creamy white head. Smells of phenolic yeasts. Taste is light sweet grain, witha creamy yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is good, average carbonation. Good drinkability, light and refreshing. An easy drinking beer that is better than your average pale wheat.

Pours a nice cloudy pale yellow, a finger worth of white head that dissipates fairly quickly into a thin ring that sticks around the entire time.. very nice streams of bubbling carbonation. i did notice a nice bit of sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

fairly aromatic, I get a blast of banana up front, bready malts, and some alcohol.

Tastes very similar to the smell, lots of banana, and wheaty biscuits. A refreshing wheat beer at face value. Extremely solid and delicious.

Great mouthfeel, a crisp dry finish and not over carbonated.

Highly drinkable, i've already finished 2/3rds of it and am finding it difficult to show restraint by drinking it slowly. Very quaffable. I bought this in a single bottle to review and now will probably return for a six pack.

Thanks to Bobby for sharing this one.

A: The pour is a hazy light straw color with a big white head that has some pretty good retention.

S: There is a slight sour/tart note on the aroma along with some hints of butter. Surprisingly, however, there is a nice bit of banana and a slight spice.

T: A nice sweet malt and wheat flavor along with banana undertones which actually make this enjoyable. However, there still is that slight tart flavor that is present in many of these American wheats.

M: The body is medium with a soft, moderate level of carbonation.

D: Despite a few flaws, this one is actually pretty decent. A bit of an off nose, but a nice flavor.

Pours a beautiful hazy golden yellow with a head that held on for quite a while.

Smells remind me almost of grapes, raisans or a sweet white wine and some earthy scents.

Taste is not going to blow your socks off but in my opinion has just the right amount of flavor for an American wheat. It starts out sweet then fades to a bit of a dry sourness that leaves me craving another big gulp. If you like very carbonated beers, then this is not for you. It has only a little carbonation which IMO is perfect for high drinkability.

This is my first taste of this beer and I will for sure being buying more this summer!

Newer batch yields higher results...

Picked up one as part of a mixed sixer, here goes:

Pours a semi-hazed bronze with a sliver of ivory colored head. Traces of lacing & not much head retention

S: Grassy & floral notes

T: Grassyness, wheat tartness & a touch of orange up front. Slight dryness, some grassyness & metallic notes a this warms, faint breadyness & white grape juice too, a bit of honey too. Finishes with a touch of sweet apple juice & grassyness

MF: Light bodied, low carbonation, thins out as it warms

Drinks okay, another not even average Stevens Point made for Oklahoma product, yawn

I am not a big wheat fan but I found this to be quite nice.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small fast disappearing head.

Nose has some hints of fruityness.

Tastes has some nice banna and clove taste as would be expected from a wheat. Bottle says it is made with OK red wheat which I don't think really adds any unique flavor, just a nice local twist.

Mouthfeel is smooth with an almost sparkly feel at the end.

All in all a very drinkable beer for summer in OK. I will probably be buying more over the summer months.
