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.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Draught at the brewpub in Everett
Cloudy blond color with generous head; unfortunately served with a lemon wedge. Simple wheat beer, without the character of a Hefeweizen, light fruity esters, and correct bitterness.
Easy but not bad.

o_Merlin_o (191) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a milky/hazy copper colored yellow, typical of Hefeweizen. Giant bright white head. Very little aroma. Slight lemon and anise. Quite aqueous. Weak beer. Great beer for non beer lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1872) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Aroma is grainy wheat, medium body, medium carbonation, and medium lacing. Taste is grainy malt, some crisp hops, bready, and some banana. Below average as far as hefes for me.

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap at Anthony’s. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a white head. Lemon and yeast aromas. Mild lemon, citrus, and bready notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Not bad at all for a hefe. Creamy and smooth.

penstemon (127) - - MAY 25, 2014
Pours slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is grain, wheat, musty, lemon and overripe orange, a hint of band-aid phenols, slight banana, metallic. Taste is wheat, slightly toasted grains, muted orangey citrus, a bit of banana/clove, and slight hop bitterness. Thin-med palate, soft carbonation. Very light on the typical phenolic hef flavors. Not great.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, 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.
