Chill haze is acceptable. These beers may be served with or without yeast. When served with yeast, the appearance is hazy to very cloudy.

These beers can be fermented with either ale or lager yeast depending on the underlying wheat beer style. Low fruity-estery aroma and flavor are typical. Diacetyl should not be perceived. In versions served with yeast, yeasty aroma and flavor should be low to medium.
Low to medium
Additional Notes:
The grist should include at least 30 percent malted wheat. Fruit or fruit extracts contribute aroma and flavor expressing true fruit complexity. Versions served with yeast should demonstrate a full yeasty mouthfeel. Fruited versions of Berliner Weisse or Contemporary Gose fall within those categories as they are commonly brewed with fruit. Fruited versions of Grodziskie, or Germanic-derived styles such as various Weizen or other wheat beer styles, including fruited examples of Adambier which do not exhibit attributes of wood-ageing, should be categorized as Fruit Wheat Beers, as those styles are not commonly brewed with fruit. Such beers could deviate from the parameters shown for those styles but should be suggestive of the underlying classic beer style with fruit added. Within the framework of these guidelines, coconut is defined as a vegetable, and beers containing coconut should be entered as Field Beers. When using these guidelines as the basis for evaluating entries at competitions, brewers may be asked to provide supplemental information about entries in this category to allow for the accurate evaluation of diverse entries. Such information might include the underlying beer style upon which the entry is based, or other information unique to the entry such as fruit(s) used or processing which influences perceived sensory outcomes.
