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.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, 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.

Bottled. Poured slightly cloudy straw golden with a short, sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet, juicy banana, bubblegum, and vanilla with earth and biscuity accents.. solid components, but it seemed a bit old. The flavor found banana and dank wheaty notes at the core with odd fruity notes and tangy wheat around.. finished funky with strange sugars and metallic tanginess. Light-bodied and fairly sharp on the palate.. this got worse as it warmed up.. I’ll give ’r another shot if I see a fresh one.

Pours cloudy golden with a rich white head and a yeasty aroma. There is a robust fruity wheat flavor with a dry spicy finish.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Draft at The Bridge. Pours a cloudy bright gold with a small white head. Notes of bananas, wheat, lemon citrus, coriander, clove, sweet malts, yeast, sugar, and bread. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bready mouthfeel. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, some sediment, moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Sulfuric wheaty nose.   Soft fruity and wheatiness on the tongue.   Does have that little bit of fart aspect coming across on the tongue.   Backside does show a little bit of bubblegum and banana, slight clove.   Has a wheaty body, feels moderate.   Finishes quick, the German Hefe like flavors are gone in a flash, leaving only a bit of wheatiness.   Not too bad, has some German Hefe aspects, but the nose and start with the sulphur detracts.

Ernest (6198) - 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.

arminjewell (6158) - 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.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Yellow/orange pour with a small white head. Wheat and light fruit - not a great beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden hue with a large white head. A light banana and spice nose. Big banana, clove, earthy spices. Very mellow, a bit thin. Some earthy wheat. OK.
