The Project comprises five new ales, four in series and one specialty strong product. The first four, Wheat 2, Wheat 4, Wheat 6 and Wheat eight are all made using 55% Wheat (either wholly or mostly malted) and 45% Barley malt. The barley malt makeup is exactly the same in each of the four and consists of three different malts. The total amount of grain in each of the four is also exactly the same, so each of them should have a virtually identical original gravity. The type and amount of hops in each of the four is exactly the same. And the processing through the brewhouse and fermentation is also exactly the same. The changing factors between the ales are the composition of the 55% of wheat used and the type and number of yeast strains used. Wheat 4 is made with four different wheats and four yeasts. Wheat Four Wheats: White, Victory, Toasted sprouts, Torrefied. Yeast: WLP550 Belgian, WLP570 Golden, Wheat Two blend

Ungstrup (38902) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2006
A muddy orange-brown beer with a huge orange head. The aroma has strong wheat notes, but also come cardboard notes. The flavor is sweet wheaty combined with notes of caramel and straw.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Strongly unclear orangey golden with an off-white head - looks like river water just after a flood. Sourish, urinal aroma. Light-bodied with distinct, wheaty esters and a lightly sulphurous finish. At least the flavour is better than the aroma - markedly. Dunkelweizen my ass. 150306

fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Muddy blond color. Common wheat beer, with a nice spicy character, good body structure.

Tmoney99 (15116) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a huge creamy white head that diminished slowly and produced good lacing. Good sweet wheat aroma. Medium body. Moderate malty wheat flavor with an average finish.

Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Light copper color with an off-white head that literally fills the entire glass after only a small amount is poured. Aroma of malt and grain. Light-bodied with an earthy malt and clove flavor. There is a strange bitterness that is off-putting though. The finish is mildly wheaty and a little sour. I did not enjoy this one much.

hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trades with OhioDad & JCapriotti (thanks!). This one poured all head. Finally settled down to a deep and hazy orange color. Aromas of yeast, wheat, and all around musty. Tastes of yeast, spices (pepper), wheat, and lightly fruity. Over carbonated (which explains the huge head).

Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2005
Cloudy, nice big white head, lace. Strong carbonation. Bold wheat taste. Good ideas but doesn’t all integerate too well.

shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle. Wheat malt and light banana aroma. Dark brown amber color with a nice head. Wheat malt flavor with very light fruit tones. Not as much fruitiness as some dunkelweizens but very clean and nice flavor. A very nice beer.

hopscotch (11418) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle... Murky, caramel-colored ale with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Decent retention. Earthy, grainy aroma with soft notes of apple and caramel. Medium-bodied and super fizzy. Good bitterness provides perfect balance. Bone dry finish. Kudos to headbanger for shipping the bottle to me!
