COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

BIG puffy white head. Cloudy. Not much aroma. Sort of disappointed in this one which I had high hopes for. Not much bubblegum flavor but a healthy amount of spicy yeasty banana flavors. No citrus flavor at all. Bought two bottles. I’ll drink the 2nd(obviously) but there are better hefes out there. This one is most likely 2 and done, unfortunately. I really wanted to dig this one.

Poured into a Paulaner Hefe glass. Light orange at the top, hazy yellow at the bottom. Pour with a full head the faded to a cap. Light phenolica and esters. Well balanced. Notes of oranges and pepper. Med body with light carb. Good show.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Hazy dark straw pour with aroma of hopcit, lemons, banana, cloves, bubblegum. Tastes hefe, with a good, firm, complex mouthfeel....a lot going on here. Finishes hopcity, yeasty, with some cloves and a semi fruity dryness.

I fear I may have gotten a bad bottle or something, but it poured nicely- big, foamy head, golden body. Aroma was of vomit, however, which completely turned me off to the beer after the first sip. Flavor was decent, despite the smell. Just couldn’t get past that smell.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Bottle: A very good looking weisse, kind of standard on color think hazy browngold. A very large head, for a hefeweizen, Has a nice citursy scent, and although its in the description I do feel there is some creamy vanilla scent and taste(the first taste you notice), also can taste hints of honey. The aftertaste is a bit carbinated for a weisse. Overall a pretty good beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle: Pale yellow, murky, large white pillowy head, settles somewhat quickly, fairly nice lacing, well carbonated.   Wheaty nose, bready, cloves, citrusy, subtle banana.   Spritzy/bubbly mouthfeel, wheaty taste, very clean.   Bready finish, lingering spices.   Very well balanced, great body.   I could drink this all year long and never get tired of it.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a clear bright gold with a fizzy thick white head. OK, it’s clear for the initial pour. On subsequent pours it gets progressively hazier. Smells strongly of banana and clove. Some underlying sweet wheat malt and yeast aromas. Taste has a very pronounced rip banana flavor followed quickly by nips of clove and other spice. Smooth finish but a bit fizzy on the tongue. Slightly bitter peppery finish. Medium bodied and creamy. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. Very smooth and drinkable. A tasty brew that goes down dangerously easily. I’m not an expert of the style but this is the best Hefe-Weizen I’ve had yet.

2004 bottle. Golden-hay appearance, very cloudy, though settling out to a straw yellow, with some moderate haziness and a huge, foamy, yellow flecked white head. Aggressive bubbles. Nose is restrained and only has lightly dry bananas, dry bubble gum esters, hay, light corn flour and lovely hops. I’m not getting much fruit that they claim is in the nose. Flavor is initially sweet and malty, with almost a stickiness to it. It lightens up a good deal, with bananas and light clove drying out the malt, as dry, countryside-hops provide a pleasant and restrained bitterness. Yeast is quite restrained, though apparent, with a dry champagne-like chewiness, bits of dough and light corn-bread. Medium-full body for the style and just wonderfully well done. Now if I could only get in to that Celebrator. . .
