COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A technique developed by the brewmaster, using an extremely long boil and lager yeast makes this beer uniquely distinctive. South German style wheat beer gently hopped, light in body with a sweet finish. This is one of our mildest beers.

This beer is just plain good. Itís very smooth and never leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. The appearance is very beautiful. It has a cloudy charachteristic to it. Once again Rowlandís saves the day with the half gallon.

Very pretty golden color. Taste is sort of bland, but the aftertaste makes you want more. Another great beer from Calumet.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2001
A beer with few hops, but a real nice malty definition, a good moderate aftertaste common of a wheat beer. Overall: a good beer to drink in half gallon jugs and not be afraid to get to tanked

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2002
different than most wheats, this one is not something that would benefit with citrus addition. Much darker than most wheats Iíve seen. Cloudy copper brew with a THICK off white, lumpy head. Lots of malt, of course. Caramel and more caramel. So Smooth and creamy, but cleans off the palate so well. This is a problem because the beerís tendency to disappear is increased multifold times. A wheat lager, pretty cool, yet it was unfamiliar territory. Not your usual citrucy, clovey wheat, but a distinctively different and unique cretion. Oh yeah, and itís really good too!

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2003
This was a darker orange color than you would expect in a wheat. Both bitter and sweet, but without the strong citrus flavor that you usually find in this style. A nice surprise.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub. Pours a hazy light coppery amber with a heavy off-white foam head. Very nice lacing. Aroma has malted wheat, caramel, with a touch of citrus. Taste is smooth and not so much yeast and gritty wheat malt compared to other weisens. Donít even think of placing a lemon slice with this one. It does not need one.

clear amber, fine beige head, wispy lace, sweet malt aroma with a candied caranel character, lots of sweet caramelized munich malt flavor, light bitterness adds some balance but itís the malt that makes this beer,

On tap at the brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a frothy clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramely wheat and a hint of doughy yeast. Body starts with a rich caramel toffee wheatiness and smooth lightly earthy Hallertau hop bitterness. A nice, full-bodied sweet wheat beer.
