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.

Pours hazy goldenrod. A pretty vigorous pour yields only a smallish fizzy white head which soon dissipates. Not very weissebier-esque. After a few minutes it appears completely still, with no ring of foam or lacing; pretty unattractive overall. Aroma is big on bananas, with lesser accents of vanilla and bread. Mostly one-dimensional though. Flavor is tasty if a little on the sweet side. Vanilla and banana up front with a crackery malt note and a touch of roast (?!) if I concentrate hard enough. Not really sure what’s going on here, it seems like maybe they used American ingredients with a German yeast strain or something. It’s a minor quibble but something doesn’t mesh quite right. The body is flabby and the carbonation is lacking, hurting the drinkability.

Jow (1864) - New York, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle from micro of month club, thought initially this was a Wyoming brewer so I could grab that stat but alas no, they moved to Idaho. Pours dirty very dirty in fact blonde with no head. Nose of bubblegum and tropocbal fruit. Tastes of grapefruit, banana, orange, cloves, bubblegum, pepper, and some wheat. Crisp but not quite there

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - OCT 26, 2012
A cloudy golden body with a white head. Head had minimal retention and no lace. Aroma had some nice bread and wheat malts upfront, some soft pepper notes with mild lemon/ Flavor had a good wheat malt base and a subtle presence of lemon and pepper. There was a bit a sweetness in the finish. A nice smooth body, with minimal carbonation. A easy to drink.

hazy pale gold pour with a medium white head. aroma is pretty standard banana/clove spice wheat beer, if a little light. nice bracing tartness upon the first sip. softer wheat-ish sweetness under that. banana, light bubblegum and clove. Standard stuff.

Flavor is definitely there, but the appearance is lacking. A good weizen should have a thick, fluffy head. This does not. Aroma and taste are spot on, taste(banana and bubblegum)is a little sweeter than the German native varieties A good effort, but a little ways to go.

ajnepple (1674) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.
