Poured from the bottle a hazy light gold color with two fingers of off-white head.

Aroma of wheat and grassy hops along with a whiff of fresh earth.

The taste was much like the aroma with grainy wheat, grassy hops and a hint of spices. Finishes clean.

Lighter bodied and slightly dry with a moderate carbonation.

Very tasty and quite the easy drinker. Will definitely have again.

Very pleasantly surprised by this one - usually not a fan of Schlafly (most everything tastes too meek and bland), so I came at this one pessimistically, but was quite shocked.

The hop flavor is heavenly; very unusual to have a wheat ale contain this much hop presence - especially from a Midwestern brewery - but I certainly enjoy it. The hop flavor is citrusy, piney, spicy-sweet; not overly bitter or unwelcome.

The aroma is somewhat standard wheat-fare; some slightly funky sulferish tones, but hey, that's wheat yeast.

The overall taste is impressive - tons of wheat creaminess, light to medium in body - perfect for a warm weather refresher - can taste some slight esters of banana and such, yet the clean hop flavor hits it home.

Worth trying; curious as to why there aren't more hop-forward wheats available like this... really enjoyed.

Bottled 9 days ago.

A - Poured out a hazy, pale gold color with a two-finger, bubbly, off-white head of foam. it left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fairly grassy with some nice wheat notes. A touch of pine, too.

T - Great blend of flavors, wheat, grasses, pine and a touch of lemon pith. Great balance.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A dry-finishing, medium bodied ale.

O - This is good. Nice to see a good wheat hit the market.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Schlafly Tap Room in St. Louis, MO for $4.50. Tapped from the non-labeled Stainless steel handle into a 16oz Hefe Glass.

Aroma- Very wheat dominant with a fantastic hop presence in the background. Has a light citrus note as well.

Appearance- Received with a .5 finger head that dies quickly. Has a golden- white ale body that glows. Good lacing is left behind.

Flavor- Strong sweetness, wheat flavored, and citrus comes around again. Light bitterness and finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and has a wheaty finish.

Overall Impression- This is one of the best Pale Wheat beers I've had in a long while! Fantastic amount of character while still being an easy, drinkable ale. Recommend!
