Howling Wolf Weisse Bier is an unfiltered Bavarian-style Hefeweizen. Brewed with a hearty amount of wheat, this Weissbier pours a light clouded golden color with a generous head. Gently hopped to balance the malt sweetness, Howling Wolf’s flavors and aromas are subtle with a hint of fruit and spice. At 5% alcohol by volume, this light-bodied ale is a refreshing session beer for any time of year.

Bottled on date of 01/17/13

Appearance - Pours a cloudy golden orange with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Spotty lacing with little stick.

Smell - Moderate aroma consisting mainly of banana and bubblegum. Faint traces of clove and a bit of wheat.

Taste - Predominant bubblegum character upfront with moderate banana flavor backing it up. Clove spice is there, but plays a minor role. Faint citrus and wheat can be found near the back end before a nice, balanced finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with moderate, soft carbonation. Smooth, easy finish.

Overall - Another American brewery doing the style some justice; this is a fine example of a true hefeweizen. While the flavors aren't quite as assertive as I'd like, the profile shows excellent balance, resulting in a very drinkable brew. If I were in the mood for a hefe, and Kellerweis or a few of the German beers weren't available, this would be my choice.

The beer, poured properly into a hefeweizen glass, looks quite honey-like and cloudy under a big head of white foam. Typical hefe aromas include cloves, banana, wheat, earthiness, and spices. Lemon zest jumps on the palate first, and is followed by bubblegum, banana, bread, wheat, grassy hops, and a bit of spice. Lighter in body then expected, Howling Wolf is moderately carbonated.

Poured a finger and half of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is banana and apricot. Nice.
The taste has some banana, mild sweetness and a chalky mild bitterness. It ran a little watery at the end.
The texture is fizzy and light with moderate carbonation.
This is a good hefe.
