Leavenworth Whistling Pig Wheat Ale

My other half and I differ on a bunch of things. One of them happens to be how much shower gel we have in the shower. Currently, there are 22 different bottles because we need “variety.” Out of those 22, 2 of them are mine. I use the same shower gel every single day until it is empty and then go on to the next bottle and continue the cycle. This drives my other half a little nuts because she uses a different one every day based on how she feels in the morning. This would never work for me. Anyways, she bought me shower gel for Christmas called Broo, which has beer in it and smells amazing. I’m currently using the one that smells like citrus and I absolutely love it. If you get a chance, pick up a bottle and give it a try. You know what else reminds me of citrus? Hefeweizens. Let’s see how I liked this one.

ABV: 4%

Style: Hefeweizen

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Fruity, refreshing, and touched with malt sweetness, Whistling Pig Hefeweizen is a bright reward for days under the sun. Crisp yet easygoing, Whistling Pig is an unfiltered wheat bier. Its classically cloudy appearance characterizes the best German hefeweizens. That a hefe this authentic is born in the great Pacific Northwest makes Whistling Pig Hefeweizen all the more delightful.”

Random: I also tried their oatmeal porter shower gel which was really nice for the winter.

This brew poured with a three finger white head that took forever to dissipate. It left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy light yellow color with lots of carbonation. The nose was very light, honestly way too light for the style. There was a touch of lemon peel and clove, but that was it. The taste was even lighter than the nose. It was like wheat beer seltzer. I got some wheat notes and a touch of lemon, but no banana, no real spice. It was just bland with lots of carbonation. The body was light with heavy carbonation. The finish was quick with a touch of lemon. This brew really didn’t do it for me and I wouldn’t have it again.

Untappd Rating: 2.5/5.0
