Bottled in August 2017. Pours a clear golden color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is decent. Lacing is good. Grainy aroma with a little bit of honey. Many some slight banana on the end. LIght bodied taste. Kind of watered down. Grainy taste with some honey and sweetness. Maybe some slight citrus and banana on the end. Not a bad beer. Definitely drinkable. It just isn't anything I would go out and buy. Would drink if available.

made with local sugar cane, far less dramatic in flavor than so many of the other parish beers seem to be, but its tasty and interesting, and this is probably a great macro to craft transition type beer, its drinkable like a lager but has more grain flavor and some easy to like sweetness from the cane sugar, which is an interesting a cool ingredient to use here that can definitely be tastes. its a little concentrated, a little floral, but its good in here, right in the middle. aside from that, its a pretty basic beer, a little tinny thing to mine, maybe the tap line, a little apple and other fruitiness as well in the sweetness, and a very lightly baked element from the wheat malt in here. drinkable though even when its a little sweet, better ice cold than even warmed up a little bit, overall a neat lighter side of parish that i had not experienced before. seems to be one of their most popular too, i saw it just about everywhere we went around new orleans this week! flavorful and not boring.

Deep, rich gold color with white cap and a small amount of lacing.

Mild aroma of honeyed malt with just a bit of citrus.

Flavor of slightly sweet mild malt (honey comes to mind) with a nice rounded presentation. Hops comes across with a touch of citrus that is present without being outspoken. A bit shy really, like a well dressed jeune femme at a social function who is too shy to speak up. The flavors are not complex but they are pleasant, rich and very approachable.

Medium texture bordering on full.

This is a nice beer that should make friends wherever it goes. A mild match for a variety of food styles, the slight sweetness doesn't mar it in any way. Just a friendly face that mingles easily with the crowd without getting in anyone's way.

Had at Soulshine, Ridgeland, Mississippi, on draft into pint mason jar.

Brewed with sugarcane, this mildly spicy wheat ale resembles a Belgian witbier more than the typical American pale wheat ale.

Clear golden color to it, and not much more then a skim on head on it and no real lacing to it . Pretty neutral aroma lightly sweet malt notes. Light bodied faintly wheaty malt flavor forward, a bit sweeter tasting then average, not bad but a bit basic Pretty innocuous overall, easy drinking unoffensive if a bit on the sweeter side, clean with a light sweetness and very faint citrus hop note on the finish. Drinkable but a pretty standard American-style wheat beer.

It pours a nice deep straw yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. It did not have much in the way of smell, nice carbonation that is easily visible. The taste is pleasant with a nice sweetness to the wheat. Overall a very good drink, one that I will enjoy again in the future.

Poured on tap into a Mason jar in New Orleans.
Look is a deep yellow, somewhere between a wheat and a pale.
Smell was floral and hoppy.
Taste was light like a wheat, but the slight bitterness of a pale.
Feel was nice and smooth.
Overall not too shabby.
