COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A double wheat ale. Don’t let this one cloud your thoughts. It may be hard to see through, but the taste is complex, fruity and hoppy. You will be hoppy too after a sip of this 8% ABV ale.

Wow, this is an interesting beer. Quite a complex aroma with wheat and light smoke. There is an even more pronounced smoke flavour which adds to the complexity of the beer. Quite a bit of hop flavour there to so this makes it a big, full flavoured beer.

Bottle from snojerk321. Thanks dude. Interesting nose of wheat, light dank, grass, and smoke? Weird. Pours somewhat hazy gold, not much head or lace. The flavor is wheat malt, light lemon, dank, grass, and more dust/smoke... Odd. Not bad, not good, kind of it is what it is.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours hazy pale straw color with white head. Aromas of wheat and fruit. Slightly sweet fruit and wheat flavors with a hint of lemon. I was expecting a German style hefeweizen based on the name but there was no banana, clove or bubble gum flavors. This is a straight-up American whaet ale. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Craig.

13-Jan-11 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 12-Jan-11 for $3.99 from BevMo in Solana Beach, CA) The "-topia" line of beers from Hermitage is significantly less impressive than their main brand, and Wheatopia is no exception. Aromas of grainy and husky malt, wheat, grass, and a hint of lemon are an immediate indication that this is not a German-style hefeweizen; the typical, yeast-driven aromas of flavors of banana and clove are not present in this beer. Rather, as with the nose, this flavors of this beer focus on malt and hops, not yeast. Malts are toasty, doughy, and lightly sweet, but finish with a bit of grain huskiness. Hops are very grassy in flavor while offering only gentle bitterness. Weight is medium, carbonation is moderate, and the beer has a generally dry and dusty mouthfeel from entry to finish. Hazy golden in color, but far from cloudy, and the bubbly, almost fizzy, off-white head rises to half an inch before settling quickly to a dusty sheen. Lacing is spotty, but covers a significant portion of the glass. A double-hefe? Hmm, if you told me this was a pale ale, I think I’d actually believe you. Drinkable, but not satisfying.

Bottle; stupid name, intriguing concept. Always wanted to try a doublecwheat style. Poured a dull gold. Aroma of earth, wheat, alcohol and maybe some toasted notes. Can’t really get a finger on this one. Wheat, almost smoked malt, alcohol and not too much else. Not overtly bad.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours hazy golden with a decent off-white head and a stale wheat aroma. There is a dry wheat flavor with some residual sourness and a bitter finish.

Double wheat beer? It tastes like a super concentrated double imperial Corona. They must have used the same recipe for Corona and multiplied it many times over. Definitely not anywhere near a traditional German Hefe. On the positive side the appearance was beautiful. Rubbery hops. In your face alcohol. Not my cup of tea.

$3.50 at bevmo. nice brew, very smooth for the abv. nice slightly cloudy pour if you swirl it some. medium hop profile, slightly fruity, lightly biscuity malts, lots of chewy wheat leading to an excellent mouth feel. a great bottled wheat, and great price point!
