COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re currently working on an experiment to bring Brooklyner back to the bottle. We’ve released a slightly different formula under the name "Brooklyner Wheat Beer" in a few random locations. If you happen to see it, grab a Brooklyner and email info@brooklynbrewery.com with your thoughts.

Transfer from BA review on 7-28-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades very rapidly leaving a trace level of foam on the top of the brew and almost no lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is quite heavy in a grainy wheat and banana smell. Along with these aromas are strong smells of yeast and spice. The spice is of coriander, nutmeg and clove with some lighter orange aromas mixed within. Overall the aroma is on the sweeter and wheatier side, but overall is quite nice. Taste – The taste begins with a big bready and grainy wheat flavor. Mixed with these flavors is a strong banana taste as well as lots of yeast and spice. The spice, as the nose would have predicted, was mainly of clove and coriander, but these were rather light in comparison to the mix of wheat, banana and yeast. As the taste advances the wheat, while initially more grainy, gets smoother as the taste moves on further to the end. The banana sweetness remains relatively constant throughout the taste maintaining a nice level of sweetness throughout the whole taste with a bit of orange coming to the tongue more toward the end. In the end with the mix of flavors leaves a nice rather smooth wheat and citrus orange spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the medium to slightly thicker side for a brew of only 5.1 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly above average side. The chewier nature as well as moderate carbonation are rather nice for the wheaty flavors of the brew and nicely complimenting the yeast and spice flavors of the brew. Overall – A tasty hefe with a good wheat, fruity, and yeasty flavor. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Aparência amarela turva chama a atenção. Seu sabor é leve e tem um final seco cítrico. Sabores de cravo e banana se destacam.

superspak (2688) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 11/2013. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, banana, orange zest, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, banana, orange peel, clove, wheat, bread, light pepper, floral, bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, citrus, clove, wheat, bread, light pepper, bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of malt and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice hefeweizen style! All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

boxofrane (2144) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans, Pours clear yellow with nearly no head, looks kind of macro lagerish. The aroma is very sweet and the banana notes shine through.. not much else. The taste is light banana and a good bit of spices that dry this beer out. Decent,

Pours hazy yellow with no head Smells like bananas Tastes much less fruity than I expected but not necessarily in a bad way. The strongest flavor was clove and possibly cinnamon. Also pretty wheaty. There is a hint of fruitiness but not much. Some tartness. Mouthfeel-Very slight carbonation Overall-It was ok. Didn’t blow me away but I wouldnt turn one down in the future.
