I love a good wheat beer in the summer. Mine is more of a wheat Pale ale hopped to about 30 IBUs and fermented with Kolsch yeast it is great.

I like the American style Wheat as opposed to the banana clove type wheat. I like to showcase the wheat flavor.

I usually use a pound or two in my pale ales. I have also used a greater quantity of wheat after enjoying Lagunitas little sumpin sumpin ale, a hoppy wheat beer that is very nice...try it if you can get it!

This is good information

I actually prefer german wheat beers as I find the American ones rather one dimensional. When held to a responsible fermentation temperature (around 62F), you don't have to worry about a banana bomb.

I hate wheat beers. I'm in the minority, I'm sure!

Like others, I enjoy wheat when it is hot outside. I think in a few months I'll be doing something wheat for the keg, and attempting a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat clone in bottles for the girl (it's her favorite).

I used to hate wheat beers but don't at all any more. I much prefer a traditional Bavarian hefeweizen to a witbier or American wheat, though.
