 If you were to buy this beer expecting your normal “wheat” beer, well you are out of luck.   As the name says, this not your normal “wheat”.    This did not pour like a wheat beer, as it had a nice head, but didn’t have that “normal” wheat huge head.  This beer had an orange grind taste, which make it taste more like an IPA the your typically sweeter “wheat”.  As the label says this is 8.0& abv, not like your normal “wheat”.    If you buy this beer, do not expect it to taste like any “wheat” beer you’ve had before!

From their website:  Not just another wit bier. The style taken to another level. Strong and hoppy. The world’s first IPW?

Ingredients :
Water, malt (pale and amber), unmalted wheat, flaked oats, hops (goldings, amarillo, saaz and cascade), spices (orange peel and coriander seeds) and yeast.
