Washita Wheat – Mustang Brewing Company

               I found this beer from Mustang Brewing in a small town liquor store in south-eastern Oklahoma, and decided to try it, thinking it might be from a good, small, local brewery.  I was convinced that it was brewed at a local brewery until I made it back to the hotel and actually read the label and found out that it was contract brewed through Stevens Point Brewery in Stevens Point, WI.  It was a little disappointing to find out that what I thought was a small local beer turned out to be contract brewed by a major contract brewer.
                On ratebeer Washita Wheat currently has a 36 overall and a 59 for style.  On BeerAdvocate it has an 80.

They say:
                A Silver Medal winner at the Word Beer Championships!  Brewed with Oklahoma Red Wheat, American and European barley, and cluster and German Hallertauer hops.  5.3% ABV and 14 IBUS.

I say:
                Well, it pours straw in color with a thin white head that has no retention.  The aroma is very mild, with wheat pale malt and yeasty undertones.  It has a very thin mouth feel and it has a slight wheat flavor with a citrusy orange finish.

                I am not really a fan of this beer, however it would probably be a good, refreshing beer to drink on a hot summer day.  I am still lost for how it won a silver medal at the World Beer Championships though, there are far better wheat beers out there.  Try it if you want, but don’t go out of your way to find it.
That’s all for now, Happy Drinking!!
