Organic Wilder Wheat is an American Style Hefeweizen. Light in body and alcohol, the Wilder Wheat is brewed with half organic barley and half organic wheat. Gently hopped with organic Hallertau hops and fermented with a German yeast, this style of wheat has aromas of clove and vanilla and a lightly carbonated body.
On St. Patrick’s Day, 2006, a small group of brewers and judges selected Dave Bossie as winner of the first HomeBrew to ProBrew contest for his Organic American Style Hefeweizen. This was a first for homebrewer, Dave Bossie, but Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing fell in love with the vanilla aromas and creamy body of his recipe. It quickly became a hit at the tasting bar, as a refreshing yet full bodied beer, with lots of character. Dave Bossie chose the name, Wilder Wheat, inspired by the historic Santa Cruz location, Wilder Ranch, just down the street from the brewery. The rest, as they say, is beer history. We hope you enjoy.
