Quick Review: O'Fallon Unfiltered Wheat

Another one from St. Louis... here's an Unfiltered Wheat from O'Fallon Brewery. This brewery is actually located in O'Fallon, Missouri, which apparently a Western suburb of St. Louis proper.  The brewery opened in 2000 and has grown considerably since then! 


This offering pours a hazy golden color from a 12 oz. bottle into a Tin Roof pint glass.  There is a small white head that dissipated quickly. You can tell it's an unfiltered beer... definite haziness to the beer, which I think is a good thing.

The smell is dominantly wheat and a little sweet, like straw maybe. The taste is more of the same, but noticably watery, which isn't too uncommon for the style. There is a really thin mouthfeel, but this wheat beer is super easy to drink. It's not much of a winter beer, but I think I'd like to revisit this one on a hot summer day!

My rating: C
