COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Bronze winner and 2013 silver winner of the Great American Beer Festivalís Wheat Beer with Yeast category. Wheatfish combines the best aspects of three major types of beer, Wheatfish is brewed like a German wheat beer, cold-fermented, aged like a lager, & hopped (three separate additions of cascade hops) like an American ale. The wheat contributes a full body & light spiciness. The hops give citrus hints & the finish is crisp & smooth. Low in bitterness & very drinkable.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and topped by a white head. The aroma has pale malts and a light citrusy, fruity touch. The flavor too is pretty weak, some pale malts, some fruityness and a faint bitterness. No cloves, banana or bubblegum detected. Medium body, low on carbonation for a weizen. Short mostly fruity finish. Overall, not true to style at all, but at least itís quenching and not flawed. 140118

[Bottle] Pours a hazy light shade of yellow with a large amount of soapy foam on top. Cereal grains, wheat and mild lemon flavors in the aroma. Taste includes sweet wheat malts, dough, grass and a decent amount of lemon. No clove/bubblegum/banana as one would expect from the style. Lighter body with prickly carbonation. Iíll rate this as an American Wheat I guess.

Vestjysk Vinter Vanvid januar 2014. (as wheat lager, which is a good name for such a character-less wheat beer). Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, grain and sulpur. Sweetish yeasty and fruity flavour with quite a bit of sulphur.
