Check out Southern Tiers Hop Sun for a great commercial example. If I ever get around to cloning it, I'll PM you with the recipe.

Here is the info on Southern Tier's Hop Sun:


I am a fan, and brew an all columbus interpretation of it that I simply refer to as Hoppy Wheat.

My recipe has looked pretty similar to this the last few times I've brewed it:

7 lbs. German 2-row Pils
3 lbs. White Wheat Malt
8 oz. Crystal Malt 10L
.25 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.75 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 15 min.
1 oz. Columbus (Pellets, 14.2 %AA) boiled 5 min.
Yeast : DCL Yeast Safale US-05

The main differences being a few extra gravity points on my end, I do not dry hop it (mostly out of laziness), and of course columbus in place of centennial.

ETA: One of my early stabs out it came out like this:

I over hopped a Rye Wheat by accident once and it was GREAT

The brooklyner-schneider hopfen-weisse is really good. They list the ingredients at the brooklyn brewery website if you wanted to formulate the recipe yourself.

I made an American Wheat last year with a bucketload of Sorachi Ace.

Make you wanna slap yo' mama!

Three Floyds Gumballhead is another commercial example for you to investigate.

I made a fairly hoppy wheat beer as an experiment and it ended up quite good.

5 lb pale 2-row
3 lb malted wheat
1.5 lb vienna
.5 light crystal

Set it up with S-05 and a cool ferment...
1oz of 11.5% centennial at 60, 0.5oz saaz at 15 and flamout.

Honestly, the finish was a bit too bitter, but the foam tasted AWESOME.. like bitter, delicious candy. Could probably balance the beer by taking some hops off the start and adding them in the middle.

I just made a 1 gallon test batch of NB's T-can wheat beer, which is a hoppy wheat beer. I liked it a lot and plan on making a full batch this summer. Recipe is here:
