O' Fallon Brewery - Sticke It to the Man Sticke Alt; Wheach

The O' Fallon Brewery in O' Fallon, Missouri.

Sticke It to the Man Sticke Alt - This is their take on a German style Sticke Alt beer.  The name is a great play on words. This beer pours dark brown, translucent at the bottom of the glass, hints of ruby and slightly cloudy with no head and little carbonation.  The aroma is sweet, malty and almost a bit spicy.  The taste is sweet with some roasted malt.  It manages to be thickly sweet and watery thin at the same time; which makes it easy to drink and hard to believe that this beer is 10% ABV.  I am not too into this one, only because in general I don't personally favor really sweet beers. 

Wheach Peach Wheat Beer - This was voted the 2007 Best Beer in St. Louis by the Riverfront Times.  It pours a bright and glowing yellow golden in color with almost an inch of pure white foam.  The aroma is massive peach nectar on top of malty beer.  It is like peach jam on toast or some kind of liquid peach cobbler.  The taste follows the aroma, it tastes just like peach nectar on top of a nice solid, malty lager.
