COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest style Hefeweizen is light-bodied, pale amber in color, fruity and refreshing, with a malty wheat character. The flavor is light and crisp with a touch of malt sweetness. Whistling Pig Wheat is unfiltered, with the classic cloudy appearance which characterizes the best Hefeweizens brewed in the Great Pacific Northwest. Whistle Pigs are marmots, small furry critters who live in the high country all around Leavenworth, WA, with especially high concentrations in nearby Whistling Pig Meadow.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Smell is very mild, some wheat. Taste is also mild, some wheat and lemon. Overall not bad, but a little subdued for the style.

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Gold color. Corn like aroma. Light white lacing. Sips with slight adjunct flavors or corn, slight malt sweetness and flavors of fruit. This is not a brew I would recommend. Tastes mass produced and forced. Flavors of poor ingredients. Sessionable, but undesirable.

Beese (1139) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Draft at Tugboat in Portland, OR on 3 June 2013. Poured a hazy yellow with a thick, but dissipating white head. Light aroma with light notes citrus notes and light cloves. Orange peal followed by grainy and yeasty flavours. More the US wheat ale, than a good Hefeweizen, but despite that it was pretty drinkable.

Tap. Hazy yellow pour. Light caramel and wheat in the aroma. Taste is the same with some bitterness. Cannot pull out any clove or banana. Okay.

Refreshing, and touched with malt sweetness, Whistling Pig Hefeweizen iis an unfiltered wheat bier with a slightly cloudy appearance. A nice light beer that goes well with lunch.

On draught at Molalla Brew Fest. Hazy golden color. Aroma of bread and light hop. Standard wheat and hop taste, not really a good hefeweizen flavor. Ok, but expected more.
