I recently read in All About Beer magazine about Stoudt's Heifer-in-Wheat and was very intrigued. The beer consists of 50% malted barley and 50% malted wheat, making a hybrid heiferweizen and wheat beer. The beer pours an opaque orange, hinting at both types of beer included in this brew. It has a fresh and slightly citrus-like aroma, making it very enticing. The taste is extremely smooth, with hints of citrus, and a very clean and refreshing finish. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. This beer is very enjoyable and I highly recommend picking up a case. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with the beer, but the Heifer-in-Wheat came out totally satisfying. I think this is a beer that can be enjoyed by people of all types, even those light beer drinkers.
