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.

Awesome!
My Dad was very pleased and surprised when he got his beer. He is really enjoying all the different types of beer from around the world. Great website. Will definitely be using you again. Thank you.
I love good quality beer/ale and was excited when I received a gift voucher for fathers dad from my wife. After visiting the website and browsing for a while, one thing was very clear. The supermarkets stock most of what is listed on the website, but much cheaper. I also found the website misleading AND annoying that I could not filter by bottle volume. The beer I purchased was great, but cost me about £2.75 for 330cl bottles. I can buy the same quality from the supermarket, which has a full isle with hundreds of brands, for £1.25 per 500cl bottles. I felt massively disappointed and ripped off. My naked wines membership offer so much better value than this beer hawk one. Will definitely not be coming back unless they do something about the website filtering and prices.
