Nice. A bold wheaty brew that is also quite refreshing. A great brewery that really knows how to do its wheat beers.

Fruity, lemony, banana, and spicey nose; underwhelming flavor with not much charactor; some banana, pear, clove, and bread notes.

A brew that really doesn’t look too much like a dunkelweizen (has more of an orange/amber color to it), and it lacks that caramel flavors, but it is still a good wheat beer. This one is a bit on the sweet side, with some banana and pear flavors to it, and a little bit of spiciness. Very easy to drink, and overall quite enjoyable.

1/2 l bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, nice white head. Not as dark as one would want or expect. Malty aroma, clove and a touch of banana. Smooth malty flavor, clove and banana. Nice even carbonation. Well made brew, not quite a dunkelweizen, but a decent weizen none-the-less.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber-gold, cloudy, with an off-white diminishing head. Scent of apple, yeast, apricot, and an odd plant flavor. Taste is the same with the addition of yeast and wheat that comes through better as the beer warms. Oily mouthfeel, not unpleasant, that ends with the strange plant aftertaste. Good beer but the sum is less than the parts.

Hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma was wheat, spice, fruit. Fairly good body with light carbonation. Flavor was very wheaty, yeasty, and spicy.
