This beer suffers from poor marketing as much as anything else. I was expecting to have a beer with some sugarcane taste and sweetness. Sugarcane taste is minimal here. What is left is a beer that tastes like meadow, husk and light sugar. It is an ok representation of the style. I feel like I have had countless others like this and for me this is a pass.

A-clear golden amber, lots of small CO2 bubbles-thin white head
S-not very aromatic a bit of sweet malts
T-a unique taste. Sweet and pale malts-tastes like barley with a bit of a spicy hop finish
M-medium bodied with lots of carbonation. A bit of a lingering finish
O-an ok beer-weak on any wheat character and a bit over carbonated and bitter for me

Sitting in the Sun with my lady friend in the French Quarter...any beer would taste good. This is a fine standard wheat beer. Nice!

Had this one while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a shaker. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, spice, subtle earth, and nutty. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty average brew. Nothing on this brew really stood out at all. Just not really a lot going on in this one that was even slightly above an average brew for the style. While it wasn’t terrible it just didn’t leave a lasting impression on my palate. Glad I got to try it, but I doubt I would go out of my way to do so again.

On tap at Bulldog's in New Orleans

A- pours clear and golden with a frothy white head, no lace

S- sugary, earthy malt, hay, very little hops

T- sweet sugar, barnyard hay, faint herbal hop, Finsihes malty with a slight wheat linger.

M- spritzy carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, medium body, goes down smooth.

O- a sweet, yet earthy brew. pretty drinkable but nothing really blew me away.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very light, some hints of wheat. Taste is wheat, lemon, mild, not getting any of the sugar cane advertised on the bottle. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.
