This thirst quenching summer seasonal is a Hefeweisen. Hefeweisen’s are un-filtered wheat beers. This fine example appears cloudy and showcases a beautiful dense head with a pale orange color. Berries and a light honey-like maltiness show in the aroma and flavor profiles. It is medium bodied with a soft and fluffy finish.

Ugh this beer has nothing. I’d rather have a Blue Moon. Avoid if possible.The only thing saving this is good bar convo at the Sapphire Lounge in Spokane.

Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, small head. Mustard seed aroma. Sweet and fruity, light bodied with some butter and vanilla but not a lot of substance. Low bitterness.

Sample at brewery. Opaque yellow orange, frothy white head. Aroma is so mild that I have a hard time naming anything- maybe a hint of earth. Taste is similarly bland but I can at least find some citrus and wheat. Medium light body, lively carbonation.

Northern Lights Brewing Company--Summer Wheat. 5.00% ABV--15 IBU’s. Cloudy lemon color. Nice crisp tasty refreshing wheat body. (3.5 / 5.0) Sampled on tap @ Brewery 5/12/2007.

Hazy milky yellow white pour w a nice head. Lemony crisp wheaty nose with a touch of honey. Light wheat honey flavors. Crisp lemon finish creates a good quenching summer beer. If it was barrel aged with brett I might like it more. Maybe about 6 percent more alcohol next time would make me give it a 5.

At the Davenport Hotel in the Peacock Room on draft, this came a hazy yellow with a nice white head, and light lacing. Nose of banana, and citrus. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts with a touch of wheat. Not much finish. Easy to drink, and OK for a light summer beer.

Summer beer on tap in november could be dangerous but the beer was fine. Straw colour, no real haze, and a slightly citric sour aroma. Flavour was light and hte wheat was hardly present. Not a great offering.

On draught at the brewery. Aroma is grainy, yeasty, slightly sour. Very complex, I could pick out almost all the components of real bread. Still, not the best aroma, as the strength was very low. Appearance is light straw yellow with a low white head. Flavor is a balance of yeast, malt and low bittering forward. Beer is well balanced with a sweet and sour background and additional notes of bread wheat and grain. Mouthfeel is light bodied, thin with a strong carb feel. Slightly spritzy with a low sour finish. Overall, there’s a lot of great complexity but the hef is just too thin. A little less water for sparging or added to the boil and this could be truly excellent, but definitely worth trying now.

Fifth stop during the ABA Beer Tour ’07 in Spokane, Washington. Sampled on tap at the brewpub. Pours a semi-hazy golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head. No lacing on glass side. Aroma of wheat and multi-grain malt, some citrus and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, lightly carbonated and a dry wheat flavor. Finish is a little watery with a mild sweet hop aftertaste.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Only slightly more haze than mass-produced filtered lager. The wheat flavor is almost indistiguishable. The flavor overall is very mild. When poured, there is hardly any head at all.
