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.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle from the Natomas BevMo. Note that the GT website carries the HW Weizenbock as a past Cellar Reserve Release - and that was at 8%. This beer is a new Signature Brew. This beer is bottle conditioned. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Nice aroma of banana with some spice underpinning. With the creamy/foamy carbonation this hits medium body. The flavor is mostly banana, very nice taste, and the spice is quite mild. The finish is cleanly done. Not a hint of that nasty paper/wheat so many hefes end with. To style? Likely. But who cares? It’s really good. Ought to be very sessionable.
