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.

Unfortunately I had issues from start to finish which is quite likely putting my off from ordering again. - After being given a gift voucher - when trying to sign up to the website it was displayed offline and not working. - When I made my order and went to purchase - the transaction was cancelled, after calling there was no reason why it happened but said someone will call me during the week and sort it out. (ordered on a Sunday afternoon, for following Saturday delivery) - After calling on 3 occasions, the transaction was finally put through. - Come Saturday, no delivery. I end up calling on Monday to see what was happening and they had no idea why it happened. Upon further investigation turned out the bottles were damaged in transit so the order got cancelled (?). I was then asked if I would like them re-delivered, which I did, and express delivery was organized. Unfortunately meaning that I would be at work when delivery would happen (hence the request for Saturday delivery). In which I also asked for the beers to be left with a neigbour if I'm not in. They were actually left on my front door instead! Glad none got nicked but it's lazy work by the transit company. Overall, disappointed with the communication, having to talk to 4 different people and not being told/updated what was happening and chasing it when really it should be as easy as click, order, deliver.
Excellent service, beers were delivered 2 days after order and within the 1 hour slot provided. I was using vouchers I had been given which I found a little confusing to get applied but eventually found it. Excellent range of beers, I ordered two different crates. I don't think the value is great given it is an online company and buying non custom crates so would expect lower price per bottle. Wouldn't expect to pay much more for individual bottle in a pub for some of these beers. Some are often in supermarkets for less as well. As mentioned, mine were free as a gift otherwise wouldn't use the site.
Brilliant from start to finish. Quick delivery and the extra little touches in the box were great and made it feel like a premium service. I especially liked the card with tips on how to pour different beers.
