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.

piscator34 (2529) - 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.

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

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a big frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, sweet fruity esters, tropical fruit and orange. Taste is wheat, orange, tropical fruit and some piney hops. Excellent wheat ale with a nice hop bit and crisp refreshing finish.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a large rocky white head leaving good amounts of lace. Aroma is pine, wheat, and tropical fruit. Flavour is pine, resin, medium bitterness, fruity and bready wheat. I’m loving this beer, the hops are a great touch to what would normally be a bit boring in my opinion.
