Pours a deep yellow color with plenty of head and carbonation. The smell is not really hoppy at all. The initial flavor is slightly hoppy with a smooth finish, definitely enjoyable. The feel is pleasant as well. Overall I really enjoy this brew.

Draught @ Voodoo BBQ: This one pours a darker golden color. Some head and lacing. Good nose. Wheat, honey and faint spices. The tste is about the same. Decent.

If you like American Wheat beers without a strong hops flavor then you likely will like Canebrake. It does not have the bitter taste (strong hops) of some other American Wheat beers.

Pour is a somewhat murky light brown, whole bunch of ground pepper shaped floaties. Aroma is sweet malt, that's just about it. Sweet malt taste, subtle honey. Pretty bland and one dimensional.

On draft at The Joint in Bywater.

L: Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a 1-finger head.

S: Not much going on in the nose. Some malt sweetness, that's about it.

T/F: Fairly clean taste, but not very complex. There are some grain notes and a little sweetness. The carbonation is good, and it has a crisp finish.

O: Not very remarkable. The only other American Pale Wheat Ale I've had is Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin'. That is a spectacular beer, and this pales (no pun intended) by comparison. I think there are better options when looking for a lighter, crisp beer.

Heavy non-carbonated malty sweet mess. Looks, smells, and taste like corn syrup. Not something I would drink again.

From bottle dated 11/30/16. Thanks Parish for dating your beers. Light, watery, semi sweat. Standard stuff here, nothing special. I do like the addition of sugarcane, this adds a local feel to it.
