Date: 3/31/2007
Serving: 12 oz bottles brought by Jason. Glad you could visit, my friend!
Event: Rye Pale Ale (10 gallons) brew out.
Location: shigadeyo’s house.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Mostly wheat with a little bit of sweet wheat malt.
Appearance: Hazy gold pour with a medium-sized head that is foamy white to off-white in color.
Flavor: Caramel malts, banana, and smoke. Reminds me quite a bit of the New Glarus Copper Kettle Weiss, but not quite as complex and rich.
Palate: Medium body (a bit more thin than the New Glarus Copper Kettle Weiss.
Overall: Another great wheat beer from another great Wisconsin brewery!

Deep golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of banana, clove and citrus. Wheat flavor quickly followed by a spicey finish. Refreshing.

Cloudy appearance with strong lemon aroma and flavor. This was one of my first hefeweizens and I really liked it.

Bottle. Strong, sweet, classic Hefeweizen aroma with clove and cinnamon notes. Clear gold color. Less haziness and not as much head as I would have expected. Very strong, tart, lemony, classic Hefeweizen flavor. The flavor is far from unique but still quite delicious. The power of the flavor relative to the standard of the style is what sets this beer apart. Smooth, crisp, and fizzy to the palate; extremely drinkable. This is one of the better beers from an excellent, underrated brewery. It is a very good example of the Hefeweizen style.

From a 12 oz. twist off bottle with a freshness date on the shoulder of bottle. Poured a cloudy, maybe more hazy, orangey golden with a large foamy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, very minimal amount of sticking. Hefe weizen aromas, bananas, lemon fruity, bready, a subtle clove, and a light spiciness. I thought the carbonation was a bit too high and malty crisp, thin for me, medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant, but average tasting, especially for a Capital brew, banana and clove, a light lemon, stale breadiness, a soft pepper spiciness and a yeasty, dry stale bread finish. Not bad, but not one of favorites from Capital, drinkable, but I stop at two.

Sour lemon dominates with hint of banana and peppery coriander spice. Interesting but not my thing. Try it cold on a hot day.

Thanks to FlyingBison for coming through on this. Like an American pale wheat that has a sourness, only more aggressive wheat and carbonation. This is not a smooth hefeweizen

Apricot colored pour with a creamy, yet shortlived, head. The nose is quite airy - yeasty and esthery. Sugary bananas, bubblegum, peaches and vanilla cake make up the spritzy aroma. Strawberries, caramel and honey-glazed malts make up much of the body. Nicely sticky and full. The carbonation is actually quite soft on the tongue until the finish, when the yeast dries nicely - giving a sweet, champagne-like fruity finish.

Golden yellow hazy body, white head. Aroma is strong with sweet malt — banana, dough and hints of earth and clove. The taste is sweet evoking flavors of banana with a hint of honey-lemon. Moderate carbonation and somewhat sticky mouthfeel. A moderate finish of tart lemon. I enjoyed this quite a bit especially on this hot, humid summer day.
