Share This Review

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.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

The aroma is fragrant with a nose of clove, pepper, and a hint of citrus.

Flavor

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.

Mouthfeel

The feel is crisp and creamy with its medium body. Feels lively on the tongue with high carbonation.

Overall

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.

About the Hefeweizen

The Hefeweizen (known as a Weissbier in its native Germany) is hundreds of years old and was originally brewed for Bavarian royalty. The commoners began to drinking this wheat beer in 1872 but the typical pale straw to gold-colored version that’s enjoyed today only became popular in the 1960s. Also characteristic of the style is a tall, dense cap of foam while the unfiltered ale is usually cloudy. Its aroma and palate have a moderate amount of phenols and esters that impart a scent of clove and banana. Hops are mild at best and the smell and taste may also contain wheat bread, vanilla, or even bubblegum. Its feel is usually medium-light to medium, seemingly creamy, and should be effervescent with high carbonation.
