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.

Nuffield (3900) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2015
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.

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.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a goblet. Pale, orange, unfiltered appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of bready malts, coriander, citrus fruits, banana, spices, noble hops and herbs. Similar flavor, pretty light and refreshing, finishing on the sweet side. Pretty balanced and sessionable.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a nice clove and yeast. Flavor is a nice clove, a touch of spice and a hint of vanilla. This is a pretty decent offering and very sessionable.

Bottle. Yeasty wheat, citrus, bubblegum, clove. Hazy golden with a minimal white ring. Wheat malt, bubblegum, orange, clove flavor. Light carbonated body. I’m by no means an expert, but this struck me as a weird hefeweizen.
