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. Beer of the month club. Cloudy orange with a short-lasting medium bubbly white head. Wheaty aroma of banana, some spiciness, citrus and sourish notes. Sweetish-sourish-spicy flavor with notes bread, lemony touches and some banana. Medium-bodied. An OK Hefeweizen.

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

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, 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.

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.

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.

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.

"if i don’t think of this as a pumpkin beer (listed first on the bottle) i can really dig it. this was the first of two unique beers i had tonight. color of a brown ale, body somewhere between brown and porter. very smooth, and supports the flavor well. starting colder, the lemon was front and center and at first could be mistaken for citrusy hops. at a cool temp, this beer was at it’s best, as the yams and herbal flavor and aroma really blended well with the lemon. warmer, the lemon fades, and the fenugreek takes center stage. interesting beer. misleading, though, as pumpkin is the one thing you don’t really taste or smell. too bad too, Elysian does pumpkin best."

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.
