Organic Wilder Wheat is an American Style Hefeweizen. Light in body and alcohol, the Wilder Wheat is brewed with half organic barley and half organic wheat. Gently hopped with organic Hallertau hops and fermented with a German yeast, this style of wheat has aromas of clove and vanilla and a lightly carbonated body.

On St. Patrick’s Day, 2006, a small group of brewers and judges selected Dave Bossie as winner of the first HomeBrew to ProBrew contest for his Organic American Style Hefeweizen. This was a first for homebrewer, Dave Bossie, but Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing fell in love with the vanilla aromas and creamy body of his recipe. It quickly became a hit at the tasting bar, as a refreshing yet full bodied beer, with lots of character. Dave Bossie chose the name, Wilder Wheat, inspired by the historic Santa Cruz location, Wilder Ranch, just down the street from the brewery. The rest, as they say, is beer history. We hope you enjoy.

22oz bottle. Pours clear, bright yellow. Aroma of lemon zest, bread dough. Fizzy mouth feel. Sour flavor. Yeasty flavors linger on the palate.

ChainGangGuy (4919) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a small, quickly dispersing white head. Smell: Mild aroma of grain, lemon, and yeast. It certainly doesn’t lead you to suspect what’s really in the flavor. Taste: Suspiciously high level of tartness, like from a glass of questionably old apple juice. Punch of acidity. Hint of cereal grains and lemon. Tart finish with just a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: You never get much wheat in here, be it the aroma, taste, or mouthfeel. So, no thanks, I just can’t say I was too wild about the Wilder Wheat.

joet (2654) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Purchased at Bottle Barn. Very slight haze, off deep golden color, quick vanishing head, scant aroma, some hop detected in the aroma. lemon sour dominates. bitter finish. I’m not sure what to make of this beer. Not much wheat in the texture, missing the vanilla notes on the bottle. Dated 080807 on the UPC symbol.

IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Bomber from Bottle Barn; Dated 08/08/07) Nose of grain, light apply fruitiness, and some lemon zestiness; very slightly hazed gold with a medium, quick disapating white head; flavor of whaet, apples, a little sourness, and very light bitterness for a finish.

bhensonb (15609) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bomber (080807) from Bottle Barn. Aroma of wheat and light lemon. Hazy bright golden color with a white head that didn’t last. Thin to medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts a little bit citrus, has some pale/bready malt, and passes to something paperish. That passes as the citrus comes back with some bitter. Finish is sort of citrus and bitter. Very unusual, but it smells and tastes pretty good.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - SEP 1, 2007
A very nice hefe sampled at a friday night happy hour. Poured very nicely with a golden hue and nice cloudiness. A little acidic but overall a very solid beer that went down smooth and quenching. A good beer.
