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.

A golden weiss with a thick onctuous lacing off white head. In aroma, a superb fragrant citrusy and pinhey c-hops, with smooth fruity esters. In mouth, a pinhey resinous weizen, grassy and floral, delicious, light clover honey, wow! Bottle from LCBO, tasted Sept. 6 2011

On tap at C’est What Spring Festival.Unfiltered grapefruit look. Good grapefruit aromas. WHeaty hoppy beer. Decent mouthfeel and taste, drinkability. Like the Imperial HefeWeiss, just a step down.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 2011-12-09. Lightly hazy bright yellow body with a mdoest white head. 3+ Hoppy aroma, floral, grassy character. 7+ Good amount of hops and bitterness in the flavour, grassy hops, straw notes, pale malt underpinnings and a bit of wheat character. Average plus bodied palate. Enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/15 Tap at Great Lakes Project Xmas

2010-04-01. Lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Mild aroma, fruity and lightly yeast with some grassy hops. 6+ Flavour is similarly fruity, lightly floral with a modest grassy bitterness throughout. Average palate. At the time I was thinking it was not really to style for a hefe, but as a hoppy wheat ale that seems to fit it more. Enjoyable, but a touch mild overall for my liking. 6/3/6/3/13 Cask at the brewery.

Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Hazy pale yellow. Hoppy aroma, guava and ligh pine. Light wheaty body with green piney hop character and a guava-like tartness. Refreshing, and probably he best I’ve had fom these guys (they’ve made some stinkers).

My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit galore ride this svelte Pale Ale’s wheat subtleties, as bitter hop resins claim the palate for the long run.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-The citrusy hop nose is as compelling as the crisp mouthfeel.
-This is obviously super drinkable for hopheads.
-Mouthfeel is polished; the dryness increases drinkability too.
-This is one of the ugliest labels I’ve seen in a while.

Tap at C’est What. Pale golden pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. Loads of bright amarillo/citra hop aroma over a lean malt base. Kind of reminds me of gumballhead. Really hoppy flavour as well - clean and crisp with just a touch of spicy wheat flavour towards the finish. Fresh and citrusy. Juicy and a little bit of bubble gum as well. Assertively hopped with a nice juicy finish. Mmm

[2821-20100401] Cask. Light green hops aroma has a light evergreen spruce resin tinge. Hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Little bitter pineapple hops flavour is genius. Medium body. Refreshing, great combination of things going on here.

solidfunk (9018) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours cloudy blonde,with ok lacing, no head. Aroma of hay and a little barnyard funk. Reminds me more of a saison almost. Good if thus is the style though. Finishes bitter with some sourness. Tap at volos.
