Citrus Wheat

Source: Wayne Rowe
Recipe added: 08/23/99

I love wheat beers of all varieties, but I wanted one with a little different twist. This one is a winner, with just a hint of orange bitterness coupled with the refreshment that only wheat beers can provide. The body is light-to-medium, with a delicate carbonation, and an amber color contrasting its thick off-white head.
