Are you a glutton for gluten?
When it comes to summer beers, nothing refreshes better than a spiced hefeweizen; except perhaps a Belgian witbier or a filtered kristallweissbier.
Whatever your preference, they’re all wheat beers and they’re often seen as some of the most sessionable summer beers out there. (Apologies to the non-gluten drinkers!)
Don’t be fooled though, you can have a dark wheat beer and strong wheat beers as well! This little beer series will introduce you to the different styles of wheat beers, ranging from fruity wheats to dark dunkels.
To kick things off, here are links to selected tasty wheat beers that have been featured in past beer series, such as the 95 Beers of Summer project.
From St. John’s, Newfoundland: Wexford Wheat
From Montreal, Quebec: St. Ambroise Apricot Wheat
From Chambly, Quebec: Blanche de Chambly (A personal favourite wheat beer of mine)
From Toronto, Ontario: Oranje Weisse
Watch for the new wheat beer posts to begin soon!
