Wheat beers are inspired by the German weizen tradition, and they've been steadily gaining a following the past few years. The category is broad, allowing for a lot of nuance. As luck would have it, that provides plenty of excuses to drink new beers. Using wheat as in ingredient in the mash leads to a protein haze that give wheat beers their characteristic cloudiness. The wheat/malt ration and decision to filter or not generates a wide variety of Wheat beer styles. Generally speaking the beer is very refreshing, though American versions are more likely to be hoppy, while German styles tend to be dry.
