Wheat beer question. Need answer fast

I have a bottle of Modelo Trigo ( Spanish for wheat) on the go right now and just noticed little white flecks in it.
It tastes real nice, but I'm now hesitant to finish it, but really hate to throw out 2/3 of a beer.

Help!

Yeast. Sediment from brewing. Not fatal/harmful.

Thanks wiggly. It was a surprise in the fridge. I don't usually care for wheat beers but this one was nice.

Wheat beers are a fave of mine. But Not North American ones, except Unibroue stuff. Go German.

If you are ever out west there are some really good wheat beers made at local micro breweries.. some of the best I've had.
That's my 2cents worth

I was impressed with this wheat beer, and by far the best I've had. If you like wheat beer and they bring Modelo Wheat/Trigo to Canada, it's definitely worth trying. Just don't be put off by the floaties.

Agree with this.
Paulaner and Weihenstephaner are tops in my books.

If you want to be patriotic, the Side Launch wheat beer is a very good Canadian product.

Those of you old enough might remember the great wheet beer made by Michael Hancock at Denison's Brewpub in downtown Toronto. That's his beer in the Side Launch cans.

True. I was speaking to broadly when I dissed NA stuff. Lots of good stuff out there. I like the softer Euro style, not some of the less subtle stuff.

Oh I wasn't disagreeing, just reminiscing after reading the comment on Side Launch. I'm partial to Paulaner and Schneider Aventinus myself, but I do pick up Side Launch too.

If you haven't tried Paulaner in a while, I suggest you give it another chance. I find that after they switched from bottles to cans, it was much improved.

There are some good wheat beers coming out of Montana and Wyoming. I particular like Great Northern Brewery in Montana.

German wheat beers are great, as are the Belgian. Not a hops fan so wheat beers are my go to.
