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: Pours slightly hazed yellow-gold with a small, soapy, white head. Yeast, banana, wheat aroma. Banana, clove, yeast taste.....sweet. Light, but lively. Not bad.

Picked up a couple of these tonight at the COOP... shared one with inflatablechair.... We both thought this is a pretty damn respectable and very fresh tasting hefe. Why this is named "Howling Wolf" when the Cellar Reserve Weizenbock already had the moniker first is very confusing. I bet it will only be a few weeks before we start seeing reviews under the Weizenbock that actually should be in the hefe category... oh well... I don’t care... this is a classy brew. 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.. I will definitely be picking these up while I can.

12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered bright orange-tan body. Fluffy white heads fades away to an oily residue after a few minutes. Sweet banana aroma. A little sweet, not much hop or clove balance, but still a decent enough example of the style. Medium bodied, easy drinking, sort of middle of the road.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is strong with wheat and a slight hint of lemony tartness. Not much spice. The flavor is a little more spicy with some bubblegum sweetness and lemon. It has a very wheaty finish with another light hit of yeast. Not bad, but a little too sweet and not enough clove.

dark yellow with an orange haze. Some sediment in the bottle. Everything else is light. Light flavor and light aroma, even if they are correct. Banana and cloves with some coriander. It needs more sweetness and more flavor.

Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pale wheat, curacao and other orange and citrus fruits, coriander seed and a hint of bubble gum - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive wheatie and yeastie flavour at first with a herbal sweetness soon afterwards and some light spices noticeable. Aftertaste is mostly dry, showing some wheat, a little curacao and a hint of the alcohol. Overall, a nice very mild german wheat with some sweetness, but mostly a dry lingering flavour with some light spices too. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 06-December-2011 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 14-March-2012 when Detroit Lost to Anaheim in hockey and it first hit 80degrees Farenheit in Washington - in early MARCH.

Fr0m the b0ttle this p0ured a fairly clear yell0w/g0ld b0dy with l0ts 0f bubbles and a 3-fingered head. The ar0ma was very bready, d0ughy, and yeasty. It tasted lightly lem0ny with raw bread d0ugh and light fresh fruit. It finished dry and quietly tangy. 0kay as a quencher, but n0t interesting en0ugh t0 pursue further.

Cloudy orange bright pour. Bottle at knife and tine. Grapefruit aroma. Sweet. Fruity and coconut pineapple tastes. Pretty good for the style

Bah, tons of off flavors in this wheat beer. Completely wrong. Some spice in there

A slightly fruity aroma. Very good appearance. This is pretty nice, even though I’m drinking it a little warm. Has quite a bit of wheat, some banana. Decent.
