I usually use white wheat but heard from a pro that red wheat was their key to making excellent wheat ales, tastes like pie crust they said.

Nice product, lighter in color and more affordable than white wheat
I would have to compare this side by side with white wheat to really know the flavor difference, but from my experience it's minimal. I have use both with great results. This is actually lighter than white wheat and works great with pilsen malt for a light and crisp american wheat. I like to add fruit after cold crashing and racking to secondary. I have also used it in a NEIPA thats currently bubbling away. Briess is yet to disappoint!

Prefer the flavor of this to regular wheat
I like the extra flavor this seems to get over the regular white wheat. Not for all beers like a paler wheat beer perhaps but nice for the maltier Dunkelweisens and Rye Bocks I've been experimenting with.
