An unfiltered American Wheat style beer. This beer is golden in color with a slight haze from the wheat and yeast. This beer is brewed with about 25% wheat so that the wheat haze remains suspended. This beer has a light to medium body with some yeasty characteristics in the flavor and mouth feel. This beer has low-medium hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. You should be able to pick up some of the fruity aroma that is typical of this beer style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Sampled on draft at the Cranberry PA location this beer poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was light sweetish and grainy. The flavor was dryish, grainy and a bit wheaty with a moderate body. There was a tangy, lightly fruity finish.

Strykzone (7658) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. This is quite cloudy and has a white head that lasts nicely. I taste orange and zest first here. Hops are also tasted and are more prominent than in othet hefes. They add dryness and mild bitterness.

On tap at the Wausau brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent golden with a thin, frothy white head. Aroma of lightly pale malt and a hint of wheat along with mildly earthy hops. Body starts with decent mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness and grainy malt with some earthy bittering hops toward a drier finish. Overly bitter, needs more sweet balance.

Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy straw brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a thin white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of white bread dough, some flowery hops, and a touch of pear fruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with a distinct bread dough and yeast flavor. Finish is slightly sweet, a little watery and then a clean cut finish with no aftertaste.

cheap (6086) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2007
On tap at the Cranberry H&H near Pittsbugh PA. Really looking forward to this, wheat beers are my fave. Pours pale yellow with a slight haze. I was a little dissapointed in the pour, the description said unfiltered but this has no real cloudyness to it. Initially pretty bitter for a wheat beer. No particular aroma on this one and this is surprizing because all the other beerss I had at H&H had lots of smell. The initial bitterness eventually fades to an acceptable flavor that can be enjoyed. This may be a bit watered down but there is just a hint of citrus. There is no yeastyness apparent in this beer. This has a flavor more like a lager than a wheat beer if that is possible. I think they accidentally dropped some hops in there even though on the card it says low or no hops added. Finish is not offensive but does have a hint of bitterness that fades rapidly.

Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap. Mild fruity aroma, light orange oil and sulfury acidic tang. Cloudy golden dull amber with thin foamy lacing head. Light body with light-medium carbonation. Starts with watery wheat taste, light grainy undertones and mild orange-sulfur notes. Mild bittering in the finish with dusty grainy after, chalky bubblegum hints, and a light acidity. Not a bad American wheat, definitely more flavorful than others I’ve had.

I’m a sucker for a good wheat beer when it’s warm out and this was a nice one. Aroma was a little weak but could pick up some citrus. Pour was a nice light gold with a 2 finger white head. Nice and cloudy. Taste was very crisp and refreshing. Citrus with a bready/yeasty backbone and a nice dry aftertaste. Good carbonation carries the flavor throug.

auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Hazy, cloudy opalescent orange-tinted straw pour, with a rim of white. Noses in distant lemon (thanks slice). Flavor is a rather flaccid wet wheat sugar and bland white sugar flavor. Not much there. Light alcohol, light sweetness, light lemon fruitiness. This is nothing to get whipped up about. There’s a curt little bit of sourness, but really, really faint. This is more of a beginner beer than the blond. Faint gummy hop glow finishes this example. Somewhat thin bodied. Boring.
