Bavarian Wheat Blend from Wyeast is a perfectly balanced blend of a neutral ale strain and a fruity, spicy wheat strain. The two influence each other out nicely, the neutral ale yeast providing a balanced base while the wheat yeast produces esters and phenolics reminiscent of classic continental wheat beers. The resulting beers often have a fair fruit-and spice character without being too strong, making this yeast a great choice for making traditional German wheat beers that are subtle and balanced. A decently-flocculating strain that is not as overwhelming as other wheat strains, it is a good standby for those making a foray into German Wheat territory.
