Wheat Wars Results

Michael Agnew, owner of A Perfect Pint, hosted “Wheat Wars” last night at The Four Firkins. He led us in a head-to-head battle of wheats – one wit versus another (Unibroue’s Blanche de Chambly vs. Ommegang Witte), one American wheat versus another (Pyramid Crystal Wheat vs. Goose Island 312) and one German hefeweizen vs. another (Schneider Weisse vs. Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier) and then a final battle royale to choose the winner. It was an interesting way to facilitate discussion and get people to share what they were tasting in a particular beer. Obviously there were lots of differing opinions. In the end, I was 2 for 4 – the group chose Blanche de Chambly (I chose otherwise), Crystal Wheat (I chose otherwise), Weihenstephaner (Finally!) and then Weihenstephaner for the “best of show.”

    I just had a bottle of Weihenstephaner for the first time after seeing how highly rated it is. Really good stuff, but I would still choose NG Dancing Man or Schell Hefe over it, especially for the price.
