COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ballast Point Wahoo Wheat Beer is created using the same ingredients that were once used in Belgium. Flaked unmalted wheat, oats and malted barley comprise the grain. The unmalted wheat has a high protein content, which causes the beer to be hazy, thus giving it a cloudy, or "white" appearance. A special yeast gives a refreshing tangy flavor that is different from both the sour Weiss beers of Berlin or the banana and clovey Weizens of Bavaria. The mild hopping allows the unique malts to show through and does not conflict with the subtleties of the citrus spicing. This unique citrus character is created by adding a blend of curacao (bitter orange), sweet orange and coriander to the boil. White beers are light and refreshing, yet provide a complex reminder that interesting high quality beer does not have to be bitter and dark. Ballast Point Wahoo Wheat Beer is the perfect beer for sunny San Diego.

Pours a brighter yellow with a large white head like a wit. Weak lacing, but the aroma is all wheat. The beer is easy enough to drink, too easy I mean. Its good and full flavored and not stupidly strong like most american "try to be popular" beers these days. The flavors are oak, wheat, smoke, and cilantro spice.

This is a great beer. Spicy aroma is easily detected. the fun of this one is the appearance, just like DaSilky has already said. Cloudy but bright at the same time. the flavor is refreshing yet complex. fruity and citrussy flavors come jumping out on the tongue and the carbontaion makes the beer dance across the tongue. Very nice beer for a hot day of fishing. RERATE: I had to up the flavor point on this one today because it was so good with my lunch today. And the appearrance is still incredible, a hazy yellow-green that absolutely glows.

The aroma was slightly wheat, but not strong enough. It pours thick and cloudy and has a delicious, crisp wheat flavor.

this has that slightly sour Belgian flavor that most American Belgian Wits do not have, excellent, very fresh on draft at the brewery

Aroma is wheat grain and a subtle spiciness. The flavor is lemon/citrus, a mild tartness and a good malty undertone. Very subtle in flavor, nothing was too strong but blended very well in the flavor.

A little creamy with a citrus taste with some melon flavors in it. A hint of coriander and light hint of orange. One of my favorite beers that I have regularly. For sure a favorite!!

Pours a nice golden color typical of the style. A bit of haze and an appropriately-sized white head. Very nice smell with some of the typical wheat scents coming through in addition to a few hefe characteristics. Taste was nice with some of the German-type yeast coming through again. Simple, but quite enjoyable. Light-bodied with ample carbonation. Drinkability was very nice, as this was quite refreshing on a hot August day. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

Pours amber with a nice white creamy head. Smells of coriander, ginger, some lemons. Tastes of bubblegum, citrus, coriander, light pepper, some hints of crisp dry malt. This was a pleasant surprise!

Great aroma of bananas and cloves right off the top. Pours a nice golden, with minimal head and good cloudiness. Nice light mouthfeel, hints of cloves and bananas on the backend. All in all Iíll give it a rating of four. Itís a solid wheat beer but gets extra points for itís value. I paid $4 for a 22oz bomber.
