Brooklyn Greenmarket Wheat Beer is brewed from 70% New York State-grown wheat and barley. Drinking this lovely beer helps reinvigorate the state’s grain industry and benefit GrowNYC's mission to support family farms, farmers markets, gardens, recycling and education. Greenmarket Wheat is as bright and refreshing as a summer day. The Raw wheat gives this beer its zing, barley malt brings depth, and Belgian yeast lends complexity. Accented with orange peel, local honey and a dash of coriander, the beer is naturally carbonated by re-fermentation in handsome 750ml bottles.

Had a pint at Kent Ale House. Reminds me of Schneider Weisse and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a similar yeast. There's orange peel popping into the flavor, but the clove, earthy spice, and wheat bread dominate. Very smooth and drinkable. A great hefe. (256 characters)

Bit confused by the reviews. The label on the bottle state that a Bavarian yeast was used. Perhaps the 2014 version is different. I am reviewing this beer as a hefeweizen.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a short puffy white head that settled into a small cap. No big pillowy head that I usually see from a hefe. Not a lot of yeasty residue from the bottle.

The aroma is of a wheat malt, slightly musty with a hint of metal. Nice banana and clove notes from the yeast. A touch of tart apple.

The taste is strong on the yeast. Banana and clove are forefront. Nice crisp wheat flavor. Light lemon and tart apple. The malt shows through a bit more than most hefeweizens, a bit more crisp.

Moderate feel. A bit crisp. Sweet and spicy on the palate. A bit tart in the finish.

A nice hefe, not mind blowing. Drinks easy. Not an overly yeasty hefe. (869 characters)

Nice wheat beer from Brooklyn. Lots of light fruit, hints of esters common to hefeweizens, some tooth to it but lighter and with a lot of clarity for an unfiltered version. The grains come through brilliantly. I'd position this somewhere between an American Summer Wheat and a German Hefe. The addition of coriander, orange peel, and honey make for some added nuance. Not heavy at all, as some Belgian white (wit) beers can be (not that that's a bad thing). Very mild sweetness at the end that carries a medium finish. (519 characters)

A: The beer is hazy light golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a large collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of orange peels.
T: The taste is dominated by flavors of wheat malts and has some hints of honey and coriander, the latter of which stands out a little bit more towards the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink. The beer seems a little similar to the Brooklyner Weisse, although you can definitely tell that Belgian yeast was used in lieu of Bavarian yeast and that honey and orange peels were included in the ingredients. (871 characters)

Draft pour - comes out an inviting deep, burnt orange/tangerine to golden hue. Cloves and coriander come out in the aromatics, with a banana accented yeastiness on the front end of the taste. Refreshing and light on the palate. Lively, seemingly built for spring and summer days. Goes down nicely. (297 characters)

Best thing about this beer is the color. Gorgeous golden apricot. Tiny head quickly falls flat.

First hit in the nostrils is yeast and raw malt followed by some tropical fruit and clove and candy sugar. No great dimension going on here.

Taste is sweet candy apricot, mango, banana and clove. Conventional. Texture is thin.

Overall, surprisingly uninteresting for something from this great brewery. (406 characters)

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale golden yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint hints of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has finger tall fizzy foamy bright white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat with a light amount of honey sweetness in the aroma as well. There is also a hint of banana/clove + a light amount of traditional Belgian witbier yeast. Very light hints of orange peel.

T: Upfront there is a slightly stronger than moderate flavor of wheat malts with just a hint of honey sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/orange peel and spicy Belgian witbier yeast (including coriander). Finally, this beer finishes with the flavors of banana + clove. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which does not linger.

M: Light bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very easy to drink and very enjoyable, this would be a great beer on a really hot spring/summer afternoon. Alcohol is well hidden and this beer is sessionable. (1,241 characters)

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lovely carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and sour dough. Body is medium and crisp. Wheat malt, yeast, bananas, pears, sulfur and spices fill the mouth. Finish is medium and fruity. I’m not impressed by this brew. (327 characters)

golden witbier with light head and lacing. Smooth taste, maybe could use a bit more carbonation, but still quite good. (119 characters)
