This is a fantastic brew. Don’t be alarmed by the sediment in the bottle. That’s part of the character of this unfiltered wheat ale from Wild Rose. It pours a hazy cloudy gold colour with a nice frothy white head of foam. The flavour is some what characteristic of the Belgium Dubbel, but that is purely because of the yeast that Wild Rose uses. As like many breweries they have a signature flavour that comes thru. Also because Wheat beers (“Weizen” is German for “wheat”.) are usually top-fermented, and this one is.
Wild Rose released this seasonal Hoodoo Hef mid June and they describe it as:
Inspired by traditional weisse beers of Bavaria, this wheat ale is hazy gold and naturally cloudy. Canadian malted wheat blends with a specially selected yeast to give clove-like spiciness to the aroma and flavour. A refreshing thirst quencher for warm Alberta summer days.”
It comes in a big bottle, 650 ml, so sharing with a friend is encouraged.
