Share This Review

Belleview Biltmore Blueberry Vanilla Wheat is an American Wheat Ale brewed by Two Henrys Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, was served in a wheat beer glass from a can.

Appearanace

Pours a crystal-clear gold showing effervescence from a continuous rising stream of bubbles. The ale is capped by an inch-thick head of fizzy, white froth that unfortunately disappears rapidly. A few droplets of residue cling to the glass.

Aroma

Aroma is soft but pleasant, yielding a scent of blueberries, vanilla, and grain.

Flavor

Palate follows the nose beginning with flavor of blueberries atop a clean, wheat base. Mild bitterness follows from a complementary use of floral hops. Finishes sweetly with a taste of vanilla that sticks to the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is relatively smooth with a medium body and medium carbonation. It might benefit from a little more carbonation and a little less malt.

Overall

The Belleview Biltmore’s use of blueberry and vanilla isn’t overpowering and allows this wheat ale to still be very much a beer. Slight knock on the appearance, but otherwise, this is a light, refreshing, and easy to drink beer. If you don’t mind a little fruit in your beer, this one is recommended.

About the American Wheat Ale

The American Wheat Ale is similar to the German Hefeweizen but it has more hops and less yeast. Its color ranges straw to gold with varying clarity. Although the style typically uses less wheat than the Hefeweizen, its clean fermentation allows for a variety of wheat flavors with a complement of hops. Its feel hovers around medium or a little below with ample carbonation. The American Wheat Ale is similar to the American Blonde Ale, but utilizes Wheat instead of the typical Two-row Pale.
