What defines a Wheat Beer?
Wheat beer is reminiscent of the first brewed beers. They’re a mixture of barley and wheat grains, have a low to nonexistent hops presence, cloudy appearance, and often prominent yeast flavor. The yeast used is a specialized ale yeast used only in wheat beers and contributes much of the aroma and flavor of the brew. The flavor ranges greatly depending on wheat styles, but they’re typically light in flavor, making them great summer beers.
