COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Organic Wilder Wheat is an American Style Hefeweizen. Light in body and alcohol, the Wilder Wheat is brewed with half organic barley and half organic wheat. Gently hopped with organic Hallertau hops and fermented with a German yeast, this style of wheat has aromas of clove and vanilla and a lightly carbonated body.

On St. Patrick’s Day, 2006, a small group of brewers and judges selected Dave Bossie as winner of the first HomeBrew to ProBrew contest for his Organic American Style Hefeweizen. This was a first for homebrewer, Dave Bossie, but Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing fell in love with the vanilla aromas and creamy body of his recipe. It quickly became a hit at the tasting bar, as a refreshing yet full bodied beer, with lots of character. Dave Bossie chose the name, Wilder Wheat, inspired by the historic Santa Cruz location, Wilder Ranch, just down the street from the brewery. The rest, as they say, is beer history. We hope you enjoy.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
Draft. An unclear light golden beer with no head. The aroma has notes of wheat and citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of wheat and phenols, leading to a dry, wheaty, phenolic, and plastic finish. Off - something wrong in the brewing proces.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bomber (080807) from Bottle Barn. Aroma of wheat and light lemon. Hazy bright golden color with a white head that didn’t last. Thin to medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts a little bit citrus, has some pale/bready malt, and passes to something paperish. That passes as the citrus comes back with some bitter. Finish is sort of citrus and bitter. Very unusual, but it smells and tastes pretty good.

Light sweetness to the flavor. Some bread, lemon, paper, and spice. A fair amount of yeast and hints of grass.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Pale straw, very cloudy, moderate to large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Wheat malt nose, slight sourness.   Very minor earthen funk.   Spritzy pale wheat malt flavor, slight soil and lemongrass.   Better than I expected, but its rather fizzy versus wheaty/thick.   Finishes with a bit more of that organic profile that one would expect.   Still, remains better than I thought it was going to be.   Simply, a little fizzy, not really wheaty enough, but had some minor sweetness and lemongrass notes that helped it along.

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of lemon zest. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Basic example, decent enough. More tartness than one might expect.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft at the brewery. OK, so here’s the deal with every beer I had here: buttery. Adjust the color and basic flavor component to match the beer otherwise, and that pretty much wraps it up. This one was a little wheaty, which is what you’d hope for in a wheat beer. (#3582, June 2009)
