Wheat Beer - American Pale

An Americanized version of a Hefeweizen, these beers typically fall between pale straw and deep gold in color. Pale Wheat Ales are reminiscent of a Hefeweizen in appearance, unless filtered. Higher carbonation is proper as is a long-lasting head and a light to medium body. German Weizen flavors and aromas of banana esters and clove-like phenols won't be found. Most use a substantial percentage of wheat malt. Hop character could be low or fairly high, but most examples are moderate in bitterness. There may be some fruitiness from ale fermentation though most examples use a fairly neutral ale yeast, resulting in a clean fermentation with little to no diacetyl. Often served with a lemon wedge to either cut the wheat or yeast edge, many people either find this to be a flavorful snap or an insult that damages the beer's taste and head retention.

ABV: 4.0–7.0% | IBU: 10–35 | Glassware: Weizen Glass
