COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Howling Wolf Weisse Bier is an unfiltered Bavarian-style Hefeweizen. Brewed with a hearty amount of wheat, this Weissbier pours a light clouded golden color with a generous head. Gently hopped to balance the malt sweetness, Howling Wolf’s flavors and aromas are subtle with a hint of fruit and spice. At 5% alcohol by volume, this light-bodied ale is a refreshing session beer for any time of year.

Bottle from sampler pack. Pours hazy golden orange with creamy white head. Aroma is bananas, cookie and bready malts, floral notes, light funk, and faint grassiness. Flavor is light and fruity with sweet bready malts, bananas, and faint herbs; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a goblet. Pale, orange, unfiltered appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of bready malts, coriander, citrus fruits, banana, spices, noble hops and herbs. Similar flavor, pretty light and refreshing, finishing on the sweet side. Pretty balanced and sessionable.

I enjoy a weisse every now and then. This is pretty average. Would like to have seen a bigger head. The banana flavor was not as strong as compared to other weisse beers. The body was also thin. Would have this again, but I would not seek it out.

Bottled 1/11/11 A: Pours a hazy, light grain colored ale. Despite saying the beer is hazy, it has excellent clarity. No head formation on pour, but can be agitated with stirring. However, this is almost immediately transient. No lacing. S: Grain,lemon rind, bavarian yeast, hints of soil. The slightest feel of coriander and pepper. Pleasant. At the far end, there is a hint of rubber (not cool). T: Wheat, corn meal, yeasty, sweet. Slightly acidic with citrus tones. Salt water taffy tone. M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Slicks the palate and sticks around. D: The beer is okay. Not the most drinkable of their offerings, and unfortunate given this is one of my favorite locals. This beer as a weizenbock exceeds expectations, this does not though. Serving type: bottle 03-10-2011

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Nightcap at Matt’s, 28/10/13, packing the beer-case- purchased from Whole Foods, Redwood City, CA. Streaming, thinly misted gold. Aroma peardrops rubber and overripe banana. Orange barley sweets and banana candy taste simplistic with paper-thin wheat and fizz. Had worse. But a little did get tipped.
