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 BevMo. Aroma is of grain and yeast. Not very sweet. Flavor up front is somewhat sweet with a mild spiciness. Decent hefe.

Ernest (6154) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana, light note of clove. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Ultra-simple banana-dominated aroma doesn’t offer much for the nostrils, and the syrupy sweet mouth experience isn’t much fun either. Poor appearance for the style...tiny completely vanishing head is nothing like most Weissbier. A really uninspiring example.

I am a wolf tonight and this does not cut it. German weiss beers destroy Americsn IPAs.

crazyvin (1907) - New York, USA - OCT 26, 2012
A cloudy golden body with a white head. Head had minimal retention and no lace. Aroma had some nice bread and wheat malts upfront, some soft pepper notes with mild lemon/ Flavor had a good wheat malt base and a subtle presence of lemon and pepper. There was a bit a sweetness in the finish. A nice smooth body, with minimal carbonation. A easy to drink.

HA...funny I had the impression as "JOW", I though this was Wyoming but instead is brewed in Idaho. Anyway, I didn’t like it at first (at all) but it kinda grew on me. Didn’t get the banana taste as a lot of others but more of, for lack of a better term, earthy flavor.

Jow (2016) - New York, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle from micro of month club, thought initially this was a Wyoming brewer so I could grab that stat but alas no, they moved to Idaho. Pours dirty very dirty in fact blonde with no head. Nose of bubblegum and tropocbal fruit. Tastes of grapefruit, banana, orange, cloves, bubblegum, pepper, and some wheat. Crisp but not quite there

IndianaRed (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2012
On Tap at Brewforia Beer Market, Meridian, ID Classic hazy yellow with a white but fleeting head. Very soft aroma of fruity German hef notes. Flavor is quite Bananana-y and overall pretty sweet and not as crisp as better examples of the style.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy golden body. Small, white head. Light aroma of clove, bubble gum, grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. A slight tartness finishes things off. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of clove and bleach in the aftertaste. Homebrew kit-like.

arminjewell (6072) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle hazy orange pour with thin to no white head, aroma brought notes of milky yeast notes, hints of lemon zest, touch of earth, grass and biscuit notes, slight orange peel, hints of banana and spice notes as well. Taste is a mix of milky and bready yeast, some full bread and biscuit notes, touch of banana, hints of spice, orange, touch of lemon, finishing fairly yeasty. Pretty nice, but a bit unbalanced.
