COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Howling Wolf Weisse Bier is an unfiltered Bavarian-style Hefeweizen. Brewed with a hearty amount of wheat, this Weissbier pours a light clouded golden color with a generous head. Gently hopped to balance the malt sweetness, Howling Wolfs flavors and aromas are subtle with a hint of fruit and spice. At 5% alcohol by volume, this light-bodied ale is a refreshing session beer for any time of year.

Ernest (7479) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana, light note of clove. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Ultra-simple banana-dominated aroma doesnt offer much for the nostrils, and the syrupy sweet mouth experience isnt much fun either. Poor appearance for the style...tiny completely vanishing head is nothing like most Weissbier. A really uninspiring example.

Bottle. Pours clear golden small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is green apple, wheat, grain. Flavor is the same, light sweet, lemony. Light body. Nothing special

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, some sediment, moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Sulfuric wheaty nose.   Soft fruity and wheatiness on the tongue.   Does have that little bit of fart aspect coming across on the tongue.   Backside does show a little bit of bubblegum and banana, slight clove.   Has a wheaty body, feels moderate.   Finishes quick, the German Hefe like flavors are gone in a flash, leaving only a bit of wheatiness.   Not too bad, has some German Hefe aspects, but the nose and start with the sulphur detracts.

BuckeyeBoy (6547) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Picked up a couple of these tonight at the COOP... shared one with inflatablechair.... We both thought this is a pretty damn respectable and very fresh tasting hefe. Why this is named "Howling Wolf" when the Cellar Reserve Weizenbock already had the moniker first is very confusing. I bet it will only be a few weeks before we start seeing reviews under the Weizenbock that actually should be in the hefe category... oh well... I dont care... this is a classy brew. 1" foamy white head... great retention and lacing.. the brew is hazed golden. Nose is very fresh of course... balanced nicely between the esters and the phenols... although both seem a tad light... banana and clove play nicely but are not quite as heavy as I would hope for... but that is my PNW mindset playing games. Not much to say about the flavor that I havent already said... the banana begins up front and the clove sorta finishes out.. the palate is better than the aroma by quite a bit in my mind... Medium/lite body seems spot on... carbonation is also about perfect.. Nothing is wrong with this beer... damn good actually. I forget how refreshing a well made hefeweizen can be.. I will definitely be picking these up while I can.

Pailhead (6529) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of banana, clove, bubblegum, and light citrus. It pours a hazy orangish-gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate banana, bubblegum, and a hint of lemon. The finish has very light wheaty tanginess and just a hint of clove. Light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall solid, but a tad on the sweet side and not enough citrus flavors.

Bottle: Pours slightly hazed yellow-gold with a small, soapy, white head. Yeast, banana, wheat aroma. Banana, clove, yeast taste.....sweet. Light, but lively. Not bad.
