Like their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

Peach Wheat Beer Review by John

Easy to brew. I added 4 ounces of Peach flavoring when bottling. My wife and I both love it. Good kit for the money and I will be ordering this kit again in the future. Good summertime beer. (Posted on 7/12/14)
Nice, easy brew Review by Josh
Rating
This beer was very easy to make. I added 1 table spoon of bitter orange peel to the last five minutes of the boil and transferred it to the primary fermenter. I also added mesquite chaff to the fermenter. I let it sit 2 weeks primary, racked into a secondary fermenter without any chaff or orange peel and let it sit 2 weeks. The beer turned out good except the orange was a little overwhelming. I would repeat the same brewing process but with only a teaspoon of orange peel next time. (Posted on 7/2/14)

I'm a newbie at homebrew...This was my first attempt at it and I have to say that this is my go to HB. I have brewed it twice and about to do a third. Great brew to try different flavor sand additions....I just need to figure out how to bump up the AVB. Like I said.....newbie. Can't go wrong with this one! (Posted on 6/18/14)
Very pleasantly surprised! Review by James

I didn't expect a lot out of this beer. I am fairly new to this obsession and figured for the price if I messed up I could get some more experience without loosing much. I try to brew at least two to three times a month to get the basics down. Super easy to brew and I brewed per the instructions and left it in the fermenter for two weeks before bottling. I'm not a huge fan of wheat beers but this one is really really good! Even my wife who is a total beer snob really likes it. I will definitely be adding this to my regular brew schedule. Light, crisp, and very refreshing! Cheers! (Posted on 6/16/14)
Solid base kit Review by Ed
Rating
I did not brew this to have a pure wheat beer, so I can't really comment on it in that regard. I brewed it to make it a raspberry wheat and it has done so nicely. I let it sit in primary for about 10 days or so, I believe, and then racked 3 pounds of previously frozen, but then thawed raspberries. I didn't puree them or pour vodka over them or anything - just dumped 'em in straight from the bag into the secondary. Racked beer on top of them and let it sit for two more weeks. I now now to use a paint strainer bag when transferring fruit beer to the bottling bucket, but I didn't realize that on bottling day so my bottling wand got a little clogged with the little tiny raspberry "floaties" - some of which made it into the bottles, but most settled to the base of the bottle.

The beer - two weeks into bottle conditioning - is very good. I can definitely taste/smell the raspberries, so I can see myself coming back to this beer and experimenting with it in a different way down the road.

Some said the wheat is "too hoppy." My beer is a little tart, but that's due to the newness of the raspberries. I'm confident in one more week the tartness will mellow.

I have created a solid summer brew and it's due to the simplicity of this kit which serves as a solid foundation for brewing experimentation. (Posted on 6/16/14)
great beer for Me Review by Steve
Rating
I did a full boil followed recipe to a T except I used Safale us-05 and safbrew WB-06. The color is darker light amber with a little orange tint. I love the bitter is just right for me. It reminds Me of drinking Blue paddle which is 8 to 9 dollars a six pack 12 oz. bottles here in Arkansas. OG 1043 FG 1009 fermented at 70-72 F ABV 4.46% if my math is right. Over all great wheat Beer for Me (Posted on 6/15/14)
Another Winner Review by Joseph
Rating
This is the first time I brewed this beer. I wanted something I could turn around quick for an upcoming party and it worked out great. The flavor of the beer was a nice surprise as it turned out darker than what you would expect from a wheat beer. It was crisp, clean with a nice after taste. I received a lot of positive comments from the guests, in particular "Wow, you really made this? I thought you bought it at the beer store." In my opinion, statements like that sum up the how good this kit turned out. Again, great job NB. I'll be adding this to my regular rotation. (Posted on 6/9/14)
