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.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with a moderate but quickly vanishing white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is as expected: banana, yeast, and a touch of clove. Taste is slightly sweet and quite refreshing. The hops come out only in the short finish, with slight bitterness. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. There’s nothing wrong at all with this one. It satisfied me but wasn;t one of those memorable Hefeweizens.

I like weisser biers so I was happy with this one lots of good malty flavor smooth easy to drink. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a good head, would recommend.

1" foamy white head... great retention and lacing.. the brew is hazed golden. Nose is very fresh of course... balanced nicely between the esters and the phenols... although both seem a tad light... banana and clove play nicely but are not quite as heavy as I would hope for... but that is my PNW mindset playing games. Not much to say about the flavor that I haven’t already said... the banana begins up front and the clove sorta finishes out.. the palate is better than the aroma by quite a bit in my mind... Medium/lite body seems spot on... carbonation is also about perfect.. Nothing is wrong with this beer... damn good actually. I forget how refreshing a well made hefeweizen can be.

Quite a reasonable weisse. Good yellow color, moderately hazy. Sweetness and fruitiness that cuts above the wheat base. Not distinctive, but solidly composed. Easy drinking.

Bottle, tried while visiting the Grand Tetons. Hazy gold pour with small white head. Nose is German yeast, banana, clove. Flavor follows, with medium body and light spiciness. Good beer for a warm afternoon in Wyoming.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a small head of bubbly white foam. The head fades super-fast, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a yeasty smell along with other aromas of a more wheaty and bready smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of fruit and spice, with the fruit being a mix of orange, banana, and pear and the spice being of a clove and coriander nature. Taste – The taste begins as a blend of fruit and wheat with the fruit being of an orange and pear nature. There is also a decent showing of some yeast and spice from the start with these flavors getting stronger as the taste moves onto the end. The spice is heaviest of a coriander nature upfront with more and more clove and pepper joining later on. Other sweeter tastes of banana and a slightly candied sugar taste join the flavor profile later on, leaving one with a rather sweet, yeasty, fruity, and nicely spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the fruity, sweet, and yeasty tastes of the brew the feel was rather nice making for a rather crisp and refreshing but flavorful brew overall. Overall –A rather nice easy drinking and slightly sweeter and yeastier hefe. Not a bad summer style brew.

bottle. deep golden with small head. no haze at all. there’s some light wheat, but i sure don’t detect anything i’d identify as a hefeweizen. well below average.
