COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Okay, we’re busted! We’re calling this beer a weiss; it’s not! We’re suggesting it’s from Miami; we’ve never even been there. Confused? So are we.

What we know is it is an American style take on a traditional German wheat beer - A Pale Wheat. Rather than a mild hop presence, this baby is packed with Pacific Northwest hops. It’s made with a pale ale yeast which doesn’t produce the same banana flavour you find in German weiss beers. We also know that it goes down smooth and tastes terrific.

So, what’s with the name Miami Weiss? It’s just something the guys in marketing came up with.

Pours a huge foamy bubbly head and has a cloudy golden amber appearance. Pretty thick lacing. Citrus, floral hop and wheaty aromas. Flavours of floral hops and definitely citrus. Oranges and light grapefruit notes along with mild yeasty notes and somewhat wheaty but the malted barley is equal in the mix. Nice and tangy in the finish. Pretty lively carbonation. Full bodied. Soapy, chalky mouthfeel with a mild tingling sensation. Pretty easy to drink and smooth and quite tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 tried on tap at the woolly in guelph, ontario. little head, light in colour. i don't always love IPAs, but this was amazing. ! the lightness offsets the hoppiness beautifully, creating a flavourful but easily drinkable beer.

piscator34 (2663) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Draft. Hazy dark gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of herbal and flaked wheat. Quite tropical in the mouth, along with notes of bittering spice and hard wheat. Medium bodied with a savory finish. A solid hybrid.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2016
650ml bottle. Hazy straw in colour with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy, citrus, fruit, some wheat. The flavour is again quite hoppy, lots of orange citrus, wheat and yeast. Hoppy mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy, citrusy. Really good. So refreshing on this hot day. Excellent balance.

Hazy orange with a thin but creamy head. Really refreshing aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is fairly strong bitterness with just a hint of creamy citrus and banana bread.

Quite nice aroma of bitter melons. Hazy gold. Grainy flavour with medium hop bitterness. Wheaty aftertaste, pretty nice, medium bodied.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2017 Wonderful refreshing session beer. Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. More citrus - especially lemon zest and orange - on the tongue. Hoppy and delicious. Summer is better with this wheat at my side

Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is mild citrus and subtle bubble gum. Decent body and flavour is sharp citrus and nice edgy bitters.
