American Wheat Ale

North Coast Blue Star American Wheat Beer

User Rating:

As I’ve said before, beer is the best gift someone could give. Okay, maybe not the best, but top three, easily. This one was a single from a set of six, a mixed bag of California brews graciously bestowed on me by a friend. I have always loved wheats. Now when I say that, I […] ... [Read more]

Arcadia Whitsun Ale

User Rating:

I shouldn’t be drinking this is December with 2 feet of snow on the ground but this ale’s number came up. It was time to drink and review. I picked is off the shelf as a single and waited for a day when a review wasn’t going to be rushed. This brew bounced out of […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier 422 Pale Wheat Ale

User Rating:

Let me admit right up front I am not a wheat beer drinker. From my first wheat beer to today I don’t appreciate them. In fact I wouldn’t be reviewing 422 unless it came in a Southern Tier variety pack. I buy ST for the pale ale and 2xIPA. That being said I had to […] ... [Read more]

Lakefront Wheat Monkey Ale

User Rating:

It’s 80 degrees, sunny and the birds are indeed chirping outside my window. My palate has changed with the season and instead of craving the complexities found in a dark, velvety stout, I seem to be drawn to the wheats and light lagers in my local store’s beer aisle. Fortunately for me, my beer-of-the-month club […] ... [Read more]

Anchor Summer Beer

User Rating:

I needed a little break from doing the dishes, some laundry, and a little light reading. In the mood for something refreshing, I pulled out Anchor’s Summer offering-a pale wheat. Brewed a year after my birth in 1984 the brewery claims to have revived not only dark beers, but the modern American Wheat as well. […] ... [Read more]

The following are our thoughts on this popular summer brew: Britton: Cubs opening day, hitting a bucket of golf balls at the range, and my first Oberon of the year […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Hop Sun

User Rating:

There are few beers that go down easier than an American Wheat Ale on a hot summer day. It’s unfortunate that yesterday wasn’t the latter, but Southern Tier’s Hop Sun filled in admirably as the former. I’m liking this New York brewery more and more; they have yet to truly let me down. Looks pretty […] ... [Read more]

Eel River Acai Berry Wheat

User Rating:

Strolling through the liquor store my eye happened upon a beer I had never seen before. The brewery is based out of Northern California and will be visited by our very own PHMan Nate and his roommates in the coming weeks. Why this beer caught my attention was due to the fact that it used […] ... [Read more]

New Belgium Sunshine Wheat

User Rating:

As soon as I had drained the last drop of Fat Tire from my glass, I felt I would continue the thus far positive New Belgium experience and helped myself to a cold bottle of Sunshine Wheat. The label speaks to days of old, when stacks of wheat were threshed and bound by hand and […] ... [Read more]
