DetailsLike their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike the German Hefeweizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

It is a really plain recipe - if you are looking to brew something simple, this is it.I am looking for a wheat beer to make a Raspberry wheat beer would this be a good one to add Raspberry extract to in the secondary ?BEST ANSWER: Yes. This wheat beer, while great on its own, makes a really solid base for added flavors. I use it to make jalapeño, chipotle, blueberry and blueberry jalapeño wheat beers. If you find it not exactly to your liking, try the raspberry with a hefeweisen.
