Brewed by the original Wheat Beer Pioneers, Amber Weizen is left unfiltered for extra flavor and aroma. Rich amber in color, Pyramid Amber Weizen features three different kinds of caramel barley malts and nugget hops resulting in an exceptionally smooth and well-balanced beer that follows in the tradition of our flagship style, Pyramid Hefe Weizen.

Oakes (17158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2005
UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 I remember this beer from ten years ago...they brought it back recently but something is not the same. That one was light, a little spicy but decent. This...hazy amber colour yes. Light aroma with just a hint of toast. Slightly creamy body. But really kind of bland. Maybe my tastes have changed, maybe they’ve dumbed it down. I really can’t say, but this was better when it first came out ages ago.

Draft at McTarnahan’s. Creamy malt aroma with hints of light fruit. Hazy deep amber color with a light creamy beige head. Light carbonation. Starts with stone fruit, transitions to caramel malts. Finishes with touches of banana (finally), a bit of unripe fruit, and light caramel. Not a hint of bitter, just malt, and some citrusy sour notes at the back of the mouth. Went very well with the Scotch Pie.

On tap @ Oakland Airport poured a cloudy amber with a lasting light amber head. Aromas of wheat, carmel, light spice and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, wheat, light fruittiness and light spice with a smooth malty finish.

djd07 (14046) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange golden color with a small white head. The aroma is very fruity and a light malt. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a light sweet malt with a fruity finish. A decent wheat ale from Pyramid

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2005
This beer is a cloudy dark amber color (looks like a Barley Wine) with a medium thin light tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and a bit of spice. Light-bodied and carbonated pretty well. Malt, wheat and tart fruit flavors, none really asserting themselves. The finish is slick and wheaty. Overall this isn’t very bad and I always enjoy different takes on styles. In that respect this is decent but it is still only slightly above average.

"slightly more interesting than their regular wheat, but not necessarily better. nice fresh bite to it, but otherwise it’s pretty standard stuff. not really recommended."

shrubber85 (11271) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle. Wheat and rock candy aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with small head. Lightly sweet and tangy wheat flavor with orange and clove tones. Actually one of the better American wheats.
