COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our wheat beer is full bodied yet balanced, crisp and refreshing. The beer is made with 55% white wheat malt, 45% organic pale malt and a special infusion of crystal variety dry hops.

20-Jan-08 (Draft: Great Bear Brewing Co. in Wasilla, AK) Lots of flavor to this usually dull style of beer. Lightly sweet, wheaty flavor with a slightly fruity character, but balanced by gently bitter hops. Medium in body, so not your thin watery American wheat beer. Sweet, wheaty aroma. Dark straw to pale golden in color with medium haze. Small whitish head settles to a wispy layer. Overall, for a boring style of beer, this is solid. It has good body and lots of flavor, and the balancing use of hops really sets this beer apart from its peers.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a small almost none existant head. Aroma of wheat, some banana/clove and citrus. Flavors of teh same...want more hops in my American Wheats.
