COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Hoplosion represents a new variation on the classic style of wheat beer. The unfiltered beer combines typical balanced fruity flavors with fine distinctive hop notes to create an ultimate sensation of taste with 5.3 percent alcohol by volume. Using selected Bavarian noble hops, Weihenstephan emphasizes the bitterness of the wheat beer flavor, which is generally milder than lagers or pilsners.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured an amazing murky pale yellow color with arommas of light floral hops, banana, lemon zest, and bread. Flavors are crisp and a refreshing blend of the aromas, and the hops are barley noticable, real nice brew.

brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours a hazed golden color with a massive white head. A really nice aroma to this. Definitely hoppy, but the more restrained, German version of the word. Quite floral with a nice spicy note to it. A bit of yeast in there. Sort of like a lager smell to it, actually. A bit of soft bread and malt notes. The flavor is really nice. Somewhat sweet with a nice floral hop flavor. Not very bitter, which is good. Quite crisp and refreshing.
