Pours hazy (?) Dark yellow, huge frothy head. Yeasty (estery?) Banana aroma. Taste is banana, grass, soft biscuit. Whisper of floral hops. Soft smooth mouthfeel. Note this is now called Summer Weiss but seems to be the same beer.

On tap @ Blue Mountain / Afton VA --- Hazy medium amber color, white head cover, cobwebs of lace. Taste is bright wheat with malt, carbonation, and coriander, that moves to a comfortable, slightly bitter finish. Similar to Hoegaarden (which is a compliment).

12 oz. bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Best By date: 8- 2015. Very murky orange color, damn near brown color. Aroma has more orange/ citrus then banana. Light sweet malt tones.
The flavor is much like the aroma with the citrus being a lot larger and subdues the banana, bubblegum like notes. Slightly sour notes in the finish. Body is medium with soft carbonation. American side of of the style rather than German. The slightly sour hint throws it just a bit off for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper and light bronzed coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, yeast and bunches of wheat - pungent! Medium-bodied; Assertive curacao and lemon flavours with a good note of wheat, coriander seed and some bready yeast, but the wheat is really refreshing here. Aftertaste is a touch one-dimensional with the wheat and yeast the only things really showcased, but good for them is that they are good and show off very nicely. Overall, a nice german style wheat that doesn’t look so great, but tastes and finishes very nicely, a good addition to the Virginia brewery lineup! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 17-May-2015 for US$2,24 (bottle is dated to enjoy by 08-2015) sampled at home in Washington on 13-June-2015.

Citrus aroma. Lightly fruity, a bit of spice and some hoppy bitterness. Crisp and punchy. A little bit of earthiness as well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, pale brown with a thin, brief head. The aroma is caramel malt and a little grass. The flavor is tart up front, more so than I expected. It took me a few sips to warm up to this beer, but I came to like it. The finish was rich and sweet; bananas and some citrus. Not my favorite hefeweizen, but not bad.
