You Can’t Compete with the Wheat
What's not to like about wheat beers? They're great for all seasons. Crisp and refreshing in the summer. Almost like a liquid fruit salad with a heavy dose of orange. Perfectly spiced for a festive fall night. Even dark wheat beers such as Dunkelweizen make for a great companion around the fireplace in the winter. And of course when the iconic American wheat beer Bell's Oberon is released every March, it unofficially signifies spring.
So it's probably no surprise that the Untappd community just voted in a new core badge that's all about wheat beers - "Wit, Weiss, and Weizen."
On this episode of the Drinking Socially podcast, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza take on all things wheat (good thing they're not celiacs) as they unlock the new core "Wit, Weiss, and Weizen" badge. They'll start off on the dark side with Andechser Weissbier Dunkel from a brewery in Bayern, Germany, that features the best wheat and barley malts from Bavarian malthouses.
HOW TO EARN THIS BADGE: If your mash uses more than fifty percent wheat, you've got yourself a wheat beer. This diverse family includes goses, hefeweizens, American wheat ales, and more! Check-in any five (5) beers with the "Wheat" parent category. Try 5 more for Level 2!
