Miami Weiss is a German-style Hefeweizen brewed by MIA Beer Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a wheat beer glass from a can.
The ale pours relatively clear golden yellow and is topped by a pillowy white cap that shows good retention. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.
The aroma is fragrant with a nose of clove, pepper, and a hint of citrus.
The tasting begins with tangy orange, light lemon citrus, and followed by doughy wheat bread. The finish is peppery and sweet flavors of banana and melon.
The feel is crisp and creamy with its medium body. Feels lively on the tongue with high carbonation.
The appearance is lackluster but this receives high marks everywhere else. Sure, the citrus asserts itself in the nose and palate more so than a traditional Hefeweizen. But as this is a beer from Miami, that does make sense. Regardless, the Miami Weiss is a quaffable brew and nice representation of the style.
The Miami Weiss was revisited and the review was updated on March 15, 2018. The Hefeweizen originally scored a 3.0 and but has been rated up to a 3.5.
