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.

12 oz bottle @ home. Hazy, golden orange appearance with an off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Spicy yeasty, rich clove, herbal, wheat, light banana aroma. Fairly spicy, bready wheat malty, a bit toasty, clove, dull flavor. Bleh.

Bottle. Poured a somewhat hazy yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was banana, bubblegum and citrus notes. Flavor was yeast, citrus, and clovers. Citrus finish. Not a bad beer.

Scipio (679) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a very cloudy, unfiltered golden with a lesser white head. Aroma is of lemon, banana, and a bit of spice. Taste feels kind of flat. Heavier in banana, less in lemon, with hints of pepper and spice. Body is lighter, with a somewhat oily texture. Sticky lemony aftertaste. Not very refreshing based on how light this is. Overall, this seems to be lacking a lot in just about all areas.

Tripplebrew (774) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Pours a clear lemon yellow with light frothy white head. Aroma is lemon, pepper, hay. Flavor is hay, pepper and citrus. body is light with active carbonation. Nothing to write home about.

Pours a darker golden colour. Apple, citrus and wheat aroma. Apple, spices and grains on the tongue. Thin and carbonated. Water after taste. Not bad

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle. Banana, lemon, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Mostly clear golden yellow color with small head and moderate effervescence. Sweet ripe banana, clove and light wheat malt flavor. Pretty good - would have liked it better if it were a bit maltier.

queenholly (2827) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle. Yeasty wheat, citrus, bubblegum, clove. Hazy golden with a minimal white ring. Wheat malt, bubblegum, orange, clove flavor. Light carbonated body. I’m by no means an expert, but this struck me as a weird hefeweizen.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2012
Poured from bottle to pokal: Hazy golden pear with a wispy white head that fades out to a nice ring. The nose is very yeasty, crisp, sweet banana bread. Fresh smelling. I wish this bottle was fresher, but I can still get a good sense of what it once was - banana, clove, a little bubble gum. Easy drinking.

Very refreshing brew. Solid hefe. Slightly sweet, smooth banana’y, and drinkable.

Thanks, James McBrewer! Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a nice cloudy light amber color with full white foam, some lace. Very aromatic yeast, banana, apricot, some clove and black pepper, some mild malty aromas underneath. Flavor was very mild and balanced, not too sweet, not too bitter, notes of bread and caramel, biscuits with honey, lots more apricot. Light body, chalky/yeasty mouthfeel, very refreshing dry finish. A nice true-to-style Hefeweizen with some added fruitiness. Tasty.
