American Wheat Ale with a touch of citrus. This pale yellow, slightly cloudy American Hefeweizen is brewed with 40% wheat malt, which imparts a distinct citrus flavor and aroma. Our version is more accurately a “wheaten ale,” a beer in which wheat is used to lend a distinct flavor, but at a much lower percentage of the total grain (40%). Also, we use our house yeast. German Weizen beers, on the other hand, are brewed with a special strain of yeast which gives the beer a unique spicy and fruity flavor, like cloves and bananas.

Rating #2101- 2015.09.28 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 5, Beer 203 – Draught at Brewpub - Lunch before the plane ride home.Hazy golden pour, but haziness fades as sediment seperates, leaving a bubbly lager appearance. Aroma has a hint of wheat, and a herbal whif, mixed with a strong maltiness. Taste is pretty much the same, a malty dominance with hints of wheat character built in (wheat, citrus, cloves, etc.) Finish is dry and crisp.

Hazy gold with a doughy pale toast nose and a slight citric touch. Tastes a bit more citric than the nose with some sweet zest and a doughy wheatiness. Blandish.

Goodness, I’m the first review in nearly 5 years?!? Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Served with an orange slice. Pours a cloudy almost orange color. Nose has some slight citrus notes to it, which I was able to get independent of the fruit. Taste was rather light, actually, and I didn’t get much. There was a slight bit of sweetness, and something that resembled toasting. OK, but nothing great.

Pale yellow thin head. Soft wheat aroma, light citrus. Light wheat malt flavors with a good crisp hoppy biter in the finish. Rather noticeable carbonation. The finish has notes of lemon and flowers perhaps.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Wheaten ale on tap at the brewery in West Seattle, WA--hazy, honey straw body with a minimal circular white head. Malty citrus, biscuit nose. Very tart and dry and almost Brett-like on the tongue. Citrus biscuit nose. Doesn’t translate to palate. Carbonic, prickly mouthfeel. With little character of finish.
