COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is mostly a creamy banana, with a light clove, some oranges, and a faint soapiness. It has a heavy haze with a banana yellow hue and a creamy white, dense head that retains a medium thin ring with only a touch of lace. The taste is a medium sweetness with only a touch of citrus bitter. The beer is thin and fuzzy with a light sweet orange and tropical note. The finish is crisp and zesty, and clean with a light grassy and citrus note that leads to the clean, refreshing clove aftertaste.

2014 GABF Bronze medal winner. Pours a hazy golden, as expected for the style. World Class head, very good lacing and retention. Nice nose of classic Hefeweizen. A bit light in intensity, but notes of clove, yeast, banana and subtle lemon like citrus. Light medium body with a very smooth texture that borders on creamy. Slightly above normal carbonation with nice effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile has very good complexity and is outstanding in terms of intensity and balance. It begins with a blend of classic Hefeweizen flavors that separate into banana with a clove undertone, then flow into a slightly tart lemon with clove becoming more pronounced. In the middle, a subtle bitterness emerges against a slightly tart background. As the bitterness subsides towards the finish, a grainy biscuit like sweetness provides balance underneath. The finish is crisp and leaves you with a slight tart pucker against the fading previous flavors. Let this one warm up to near room temperature to experience it and you’ll see why it’s a medal winner.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of malt, spice and banana. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, toasted malt and banana. The finish is sweet with a citrus and banana aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can courtesy of weihenweizen. Banana-orange and weird funky wheat malt aroma. Hazy honey gold with a small quickly dissipating white head. Sweet banana, bubblegum, wheat malt. and light bitter clove flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall it was a bit too sweet.

Excellent wheat beer. has a fantastic color that matches the flavor. A pure wheat beer with no additional trappings to complicate the taste.

12 oz can into 12 oz tulip-like glass. Thanks, Brandon. Very hazy light orange; big, fizzy white head. Aroma banana, orange, clove, yeast, bubble gum. Flavor is fairly light and almost soda-like; clean, dry, tart finish with some grass and salad greens. Medium-light body. Not my style but an unexpectedly good wheat.
