BEER INFO

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This American style unfiltered wheat beer is great anytime. The aroma is pleasantly grainy and sweet with a touch of honey. The appearance is pale yellow with minimal clarity. The flavor is not overpowering, and is quite quaffable. Honey Wheat has a low hop bitterness that is balanced out by the honey malt used in the mash. The mouth feel is smooth and crisp, and has medium to high carbonation. This beer is always a refreshing treat, and is available at our brewery year round.

Part of a sample bunch, prior to the Packers/Rams game ( GO PACK!) Average hazy yellow wheat. Nothing special here. Aroma was grassy, and sweet. Flavor...seemed a bit, well, way too carbonated. Not much of a honey note detected. OK, but, not memorable.

Poured this American Pale Wheat Ale in a pint glass, served on tap at the brewery. It pours a slightly hazy golden/copper color. It produced a thin white head, decent retention and lacing. The aroma smells of pale malt and a slight trace of honey and citrus. Light in body, this ale has a malted grain backbone, tastes of citrus, soft wheat and a trace of honey. Overall this is a below average brew, weak aroma, body, and taste. Not one that I will be ordering again.

Appearance- It has weizen look to it and a lot of foam.

Smell- A very light fruit, melon-banana smell.

Taste- Once again this beer was very light in flavor like a lot of their other beers. It was also more sour than bitter.

Mouthfeel. Medium with even carbonation.

Drinkability- Not horrible but could due with some more flavor to take out some of the sourness.

Reviewed 11/14/2008 (Tap sampler @ Morgan Street Brewery, St. Louis, MO):

Pours a light yellow body, a little dark yellow. With a small white head, that is somewhat diminishing. Has an aroma of some hay, but overall clean. Not much aroma, somewhat weakish. Same hay in the taste, has a wheaty aftertaste. Clean watery palate. Some bitter, almost acidic. Better taste than the aroma.

Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear golden color with a thin white head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Mild wheat and honey aroma. Light-bodied and mild with wheat, honey and subtle hops flavor. The finish is bubbly and lightly hoppy but short-lived. Overall this is not worth revisiting.

Had this beer many times on the Thursday $1 pitcher nights at Morgan Street in St. Louis. Poured into a clear glass, the appearance is somewhat cloudy with a blonde hue. If you're looking for a wheat beer that is full of flavor, try elsewhere. But if you're just looking for a nice, lightly honey-tasting and hardly aromatic brew to go with your meal or kick off a night on the town, then I recommend it.

From a 12 ounce can, this brew is a dark straw color, with some dark notes. Little head, quickly fading to none. The aroma is of wheat and malt. Some wheat twang in the taste, a hint of tartness mixed with sweet tones. Fuller in body than expected. Forgettable.

Good stuff, easily crushable, and you can really taste the honey layered in on top of the wheat ale underneath. This would be a nice go to beer.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes

The final beer review from this trip, with a stop at Morgan Street Brewery in St Louis.

Golden color and a bit hazy, not a lot of head or lace.

Great yeastiness, malty with light spices. Not a lot of honey.

Body was nice, pretty good for a wheat ale and quite easy to drink.

It's not an outstanding wheat but it ain't bad either.
