COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for a locally-loved section of Folly Beach, Washout Wheat is an excellent hot weather beer, and our first wheat beer. We checked the overdone spice additions of coriander and orange peel at the door, and instead let the wheat and the yeast work their respective magic. The notes of banana and clove come entirely from that magic, not from any additional ingredients. The end result is a no frills wheat experience, one that quenches your thirst with no extra hang-ups.

5/29/2017 (12 fl oz can): Doughy aroma with some lemon; golden color, slightly tarnished and hazy, a bit of sediment, head fizzes away quickly; doughy with some light banana and clove in the flavor along with some lemon peel and soft caramelized wheat malt; light body, good effervescence; flavorful and refreshing, balanced, nicely done Hefe that is really great on a hot Summer day!

12 oz can. Quiet pour with modest carbonation and a predominant clove aroma with a floral undertone. The beer is straw coloured with short head and fair lace. It has a crisp start with clove notes expanding quickly into the middle. The finish is long with notes of banana lingering with a touch of citrus. Good all by itself on a warm summer day.

Have enjoyed this on draft both at the brewery in Charleston and from a growler at home in Columbia SC, both times indeed paired well with a hot summer afternoon in the shade with a cool breeze. Aroma featured a classic hefe/ wheat profile of orange and clove, wheat malt, with a mild accent of banana. Nothing unconventional for the style, just pleasantly well executed. Excellent slightly hazy amber-orange appearance with lots of fresh lacing and a bright white foamy cap. Flavor is a refined classic yeasty citrus fruit and clove, sweet wheat finish, smooth and medium-bodied. I appreciated the lack of added Belgian-ish spices (coriander etc), just a refreshing straightforward summer wheat. Would definitely take this over other spiced varieties like the Sam Adam’s Summer Ale. Recommended for the hot South Carolina summer!

Can received from AnthonyMacchio. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate banana esters, clove phenols and light bubble gum notes, earthy wheat malt and faint citrus notes. Flavor is earthy wheat malt, banana esters, spicy cloves, light bubble gum and citrus with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Slightly cloudy yellow body with a small wispy white head. The nose is slightly fruity and spicy with some light lemony notes and a little yeastiness. The flavor has a little lemon as well, with some wheat and minimal yeastiness. A little low on the traditional Hefe character. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering lemony finish.

Super hazy golden coloured body with a nice tan head, about 2 centimetres high. Aroma of wheat, corn, oranges and a bit of light coriander seed. Light-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavour at first with some wheat, yeast, flowers and a good bit of sweetness from full oranges. Aftertaste is mainly sweet with some sour notes, similar to a gose, with even a bit of salty flavours, but a big hit of sour lemons is noticeable throughout. Overall, a nice, super refreshing wheat, with a lot of sweet and sour flavours - nice in the summer, even better in the heat of SC, I could imagine! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Southern Season in Charleston, SC on 19-April-2015 for US$2,50 sampled on 18-June-2015 on the train from Washington to New York.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Not my style (Hefeweizen wheat), but had a decent aroma and taste of cloves and banana. Goes down easy as fits the style. I just don't find this style that refreshing like others do. Rather have a Corona or Dos Equis on the beach, craft beer just doesn't seem to hit the beach notes that well in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale egg yolk-colored body with an inch of airy foam. It’s a nice lookin’ wheat. Smell: Cereal sweet tinged wheat with a very scant toastiness. Light lemon, ’nana. Touches of clove and a faint kiss of herb. Taste: Wheat malt, just a bit bready and a little bit of crisp toastiness. Medium-low sweetness. Soft lemon, banana and clove converge at the mid-point. Very low hop character, bitterness. The flavors just sort of drift away as you head towards the finish with a final lil’ zip of suds. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel. Overall: It’s a decent enough wheat.

Can: Banana, lemon, yeast, and a bit of cabbage on the nose. Opaque amber, thick head, good lace. Flavor is much cleaner, lemon with banana accents. Medium body, soft carbonation. Enjoyable, but I do love hefeweizens.
