i had no idea these guys did a wheated octoberfest. so glad they do, its amazingly tasty, and a wonderful contrast to all the marzel lagers going right now. this one is pale straw colored with a lovely inch and a half of white head that tries but cant hang on. way more clear than other german wheat beers. the nose is sweet from the wheat, uncovered by the yeast like i expected it to be, quite delicate for its 6% abv, and rather robustly grain forward. there is an apple nose too, and it comes through in the taste, especially in the finish. almost like cider meets wheat beer. the yeast is interesting, with some fruitiness but super dry at the end. the wheat adds a lot to this traditional style, really ramping it up to something that feels both distinct and historic. the germans still do some clever stuff, and they probably deserve a little more credit among american beer geeks for beers like this one. its really tasty, richer in feel but still dry and airy from the carbonation. it just feels like fall. far better than the regular paulaner oktoberfest, although i like that one too.
