Wheat Beer

Brewed (obviously!) using large amounts of wheat and barley, wheat beers come in several forms. Among the most prominent are the German weissbier/hefeweizen and Belgian witbier. Weissbier is a top-fermented beer famous for its notes of banana and clove while the daintier witbier has lower carbonation and notable orange-citrus and spice flavours. 

Truthfully, while there's no reason not to drink it anytime you'd want, there is no better beer for a beautiful sunny day than a wheat beer. With their refreshing carbonation and bright notes of fruit, it's easy to think of a wheat beer as being summer in a glass. The Germans do it right with the Erdinger and Schneider-Weiss ranges, while breweries like Mikkeller, Thornbridge, and Goose Island are making their own fresh takes on these classic styles.

A pale, cloudy and unfiltered beer, Witbier uses large amounts of wheat and sometimes oats in the mash. Generally spiced with coriander, orange peel or other innovative ingredients, Witbier is carbonated which gives it a lovely crispness. US brewers have done a great job with this style of beer so you’ll find lots of great Witbiers to choose from.

Hefeweizen is a south German style of wheat beer made with a ratio of 50:50 wheat (or even higher!). Typically dry and tart with flavours of banana and clove, this beer is moderately alcoholic, unfiltered and cloudy in appearance (hefe literally means ‘with yeast’). Dunkelweizen is quite literally a darker version, with the same banana flavours and deliciously complex malts.

Very happy with Beer Hawk, when I emailed them I got a quick response from a real person not an automated response where you don't know if the email will ever get read. The beer is always well packed and you are kept informed of its dispatch and time of arrival. I like the fact that you are not bombarded with email offers once you hand over your email address. I have joined the beer club where they send you different beers on a regular basis - but what I was surprised at was the variety! I am on my third case and have not had the same beer yet, I never knew there were so many different types so the opening of the case when it arrives it like Christmas each time! Keep going Beer Hawk!
Fantastic quality and choice. Very happy.
