Workhorse Wheat is an American-style hefeweizen (literally, yeast-wheat) ale made with Idaho barley and wheat. It is pale in color and light in body, smooth and easy drinking with just a hint of tartness from the wheat. Because is it not filtered, our workhorse wheat is slightly hazy with yeast.

Short lasting head and minimal lacing atop a hazy golden brew. Aroma is of course wheat and pale malts.. slight spicy hoppiness. Good body for the style and sorta creamy carbonation. Wheat and husky pale malts with only a touch of spicy hop flavor.. the brew leans towards the malts. I don’t know what else to say; I don’t even try to pretend to enjoy American wheats... just not my thing. It is good for its style and I like Workhorse more than Widmer Hefe, but that’s not saying much.

gold pour with a thin white head. aroma is wheat malt, light banana and malt. hint of clove spice. very light though. flavour is light citrusy lemon and light banana, cardboard-ish wheat malt body. pretty drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a decent white head that fades fast. Taste is of wheat, caramel and some malt. Is a little bitter, somewhat sweet and somewhat thin. A little on the watery side. Similar aroma. Not bad, but not the best wheat for the price.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 TAP: hazy yellow pour, a pale wheat in every sense. Not much aroma, flat taste - nothing offesive, but nothing good either.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Tap at Colter Bay Village Ranchhouse. Took a lot of work to figure out what this even was. Pours a mostly filtered yellow with a small head. Grainy, damp, mild wheaty aroma. Spritzy, milky, light flavor, uncomplex but not especially bad. A very typical (and dull) American Wheat.

This hazy golden ale poured with a decent white head and a wheat aroma. The flavor is wheat with some lemon and a bitter finish. A decent wheat beer.

Bottle picked up in Jackson, Wyoming. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. The aroma is full of wheat and lemons. The taste is pretty simple; a nice strong grain and wheat aspect with some citrus zest. Smooth and easygoing. Not bad.

Pours gold, with a white head. Aroma is wheat, grass, and hops. Flavor is wheat, hops, grass, and fruit. A decent wheat beer. Thanks for this bottle, Eric.
