Named for a locally-loved section of Folly Beach, Washout Wheat is an excellent hot weather beer, and our first wheat beer. We checked the overdone spice additions of coriander and orange peel at the door, and instead let the wheat and the yeast work their respective magic. The notes of banana and clove come entirely from that magic, not from any additional ingredients. The end result is a no frills wheat experience, one that quenches your thirst with no extra hang-ups.

Super hazy golden coloured body with a nice tan head, about 2 centimetres high. Aroma of wheat, corn, oranges and a bit of light coriander seed. Light-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavour at first with some wheat, yeast, flowers and a good bit of sweetness from full oranges. Aftertaste is mainly sweet with some sour notes, similar to a gose, with even a bit of salty flavours, but a big hit of sour lemons is noticeable throughout. Overall, a nice, super refreshing wheat, with a lot of sweet and sour flavours - nice in the summer, even better in the heat of SC, I could imagine! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Southern Season in Charleston, SC on 19-April-2015 for US$2,50 sampled on 18-June-2015 on the train from Washington to New York.

Not my style (Hefeweizen wheat), but had a decent aroma and taste of cloves and banana. Goes down easy as fits the style. I just don't find this style that refreshing like others do. Rather have a Corona or Dos Equis on the beach, craft beer just doesn't seem to hit the beach notes that well in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale egg yolk-colored body with an inch of airy foam. It’s a nice lookin’ wheat. Smell: Cereal sweet tinged wheat with a very scant toastiness. Light lemon, ’nana. Touches of clove and a faint kiss of herb. Taste: Wheat malt, just a bit bready and a little bit of crisp toastiness. Medium-low sweetness. Soft lemon, banana and clove converge at the mid-point. Very low hop character, bitterness. The flavors just sort of drift away as you head towards the finish with a final lil’ zip of suds. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel. Overall: It’s a decent enough wheat.

Can: Banana, lemon, yeast, and a bit of cabbage on the nose. Opaque amber, thick head, good lace. Flavor is much cleaner, lemon with banana accents. Medium body, soft carbonation. Enjoyable, but I do love hefeweizens.

VAYankee (346) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2016
Hazy, golden body with a frothy white head. Classic hefeweizen aroma - sweet, grassy, yeast, and a little bit of lemon. Smooth and refreshing - the lightly sweet flavor that includes banana, yeast and just a little clove. Palate is lightly carbonated with a light body and thin texture. Excellent choice for hot summer days - now if those days will hurry up and get here...

Can poured into a weizen glass. 4.0 A: Moderate hazed golden color. One and a half fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Neutral wheat and peppery spiciness. Wildflower herbalness and a dry woodiness - a bit like a saison in this regard. Lemon zest to round it out. 3.75 T: Pretty earthy for a wheat beer. Hops also add a mild grassiness and a slight citrus. Neutral wheat, on the drier side. Again there’s some herbalness and woodiness. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Carbonation is a bit bity rather than spritzy. Could also use more creaminess. 3.75 D: Solid APWA overall. Interesting flavor profile that I don’t see too often in the style. ★ 755 characters DavoleBomb, Jan 14, 2016

Very cloudy gold with a whitish head. Huge fruit on top of the wheat (lemon, orange, banana) with a light spice that is not at all overpowering, almost hidden. Interesting.
