Wheat beers have maintained their popularity through their versatility and easy drinking characteristics. Although the category of wheat beer is broad, many styles that use more wheat than any other grain share a lot of similarities. Wheat beers are very light and refreshing with a nice smooth and silky mouthfeel that makes them great for warmer months. They have a mild aroma and flavor easily enhanced by spices and fruits to give them interesting complexity and depth without compromising that refreshing and clean nature.

The varieties of wheat beers are rooted in German and Belgian styles. A standard Belgian wheat beer will contain orange peel and coriander. Expect a spicy citrusy aroma and flavor. German wheat beers are a little more complex with sour and tart variations. Expect those same refreshing characteristics but aromas can vary between banana and clove to other fruits. Tart flavors result from the addition of lactic acid. This is true for the Gose style. Salt is often added to give a bite and heighten that thirst quenching aspect. There are many styles that fall under the umbrella of wheat beers and we have a fair amount in stock at Taylor’s!
