Wag the Wolf is a weissbier (wheat beer) that has been generously “late-addition” hopped with organic New Zealand varieties to provide abundant aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. Made with 65% wheat, and fermented with a traditional German weissbier yeast, expect pleasant fruit and spice flavours with a restrained bitterness on the finish.

History & Style
Our hopfenweisse, is a hop-forward and North American twist on the Bavarian weissbier. The traditionally fruity, spicy and refreshing weissbier is matched with big hop aromas of citrus and tropical fruit.

Tasting Notes
Hazy and pale gold in colour. Notes of banana, clove, papaya, mango and citurs on the nose. Lively carbonation with pleasant maltiness. Spicy and fruity, with a slightly dry finish.

Food Pairings
Sausage, Duck & Game Fowl, Goat Cheese, Summer Salads. Plays nicely with spicy food.

Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thick persistent cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, melon, tropical fruit, wheat malt, clove and floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (8/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter and lightly spicy finish. (4/5) Aww yeah - hops you can smell from across the room upon decapping. That’s how you do a wheat beer! Lovely bright NZ hops impart fruity and almost vinous notes on a light, almost crisp wheat base. I’d love to get this fresher, actually, even though it doesn’t seem particularly faded. Another nice example of the Hopfenweisse style, right up there with Driftwood’s Entangled, and really worth trying if you find it. (16/20)

Draft - Nice citrus peel and mango. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Bright orange peel, mango and sweet tropical notes. Very unlike the style and very good.

On tap at Moon Under Water, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of fruitiness upfront, followed by floral notes and gentle hopping. Flavour is quite robust for the style, with plenty of stone fruitiness, floral and citrus hops, and biscuity malt. For a wheat ale, this is full of flavour. Nice stuff.

reebtogi (5684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
600ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger and a half of white head that settles down to leave some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits with some yeasty and grainy notes. Taste is a spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a very well crafted brew that is like a hybrid between and German weisse and an American pale ale. Quite tasty and balanced.

Bière blonde, trouble avec une bonne carbonatation. Au nez, citron et levure allemandes. En bouche c'est très amer et très citronné, ça fait différent des allemandes standards. L'amertume devient de plus en plus présente au fil des gorgées, ce qui me confronte dans ma vision d'une weisse allemande. Pas ce que je préfère.

Bendrixian (1487) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Hazy golden pour with pillowy white head. Gaily citrus hoppy aroma with yeast and a bit of cereal. More bitter than expected with lots of leafy green flavour mixed with yeast and creamy texture. Very good stuff.

Edevost (22) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Style non officiellement reconnu, la hopfenweisse de Beau’s est asser atypique. Bellle couleur "blé voilé". Arôme bien fruité et herbacé, très léger en esther de bananes. En bouche c’est plus herbacé que fruité. On dénote des fruits tropicaux et des épices quit me rappelle le thym ! Forte en alcool (6.8), elle surprend par son amertume bien tranchante en fin de bouche. C’est une hopfenweisse avec beaucoup de caractère, un peu trop pour une bière estivale. C’est néanmoins une excellente bière.

Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus right up front with a tropical fruit background. Flavour is creamy wheat and tropical fruits with a grapefruit bitter finish. I think I just found one of my favorite beers.

Bottle from LCBO. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of peach, yeast, white bread and lemon. Flavour of creamy malt and apricot. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Dry and tasty.
