on tap in PDX pub. Much darker than anticipated - copper with etched surface foam and the beer is quite diaphanous. The nose is weak, some lemon faintly behind the wheat character. The flavor is really not impressive to me - wheat, sharp - this is the approach to tartness, but I found it less refreshing and more astringent in this setting. The wheat was still too sweet and there were some yeasty flavors like coriander. Medium carb on full body with a slick finish. I did not care for this one. Serving type: on-tap 08-09-2012

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is cloudy, golden in color, and has a white head. The smell is wheat, malts, fruits. The taste is malty, wheat, banana, and yeast.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Sample at Missoula Brewfest. Hazed orange/yellow, frothy white head. Aroma of banana, clove, orange. Taste is nice, a little watery but still a good Hefe.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 26, 2011
On tap @ Firetap. Hazy golden yellow with a thick, pure white head and visible carbonation. Light aroma of bread, banana, clove and lemon. Flavor is light wheat bread with a tart yeast bite. Medium to light in body with active carbonation and a thin, slightly watery mouth feel. Kind of a mix between an American Wheat and German Hef, the yeast character is pretty light but adds a nice tartness.

VertBaconStrips (2083) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Part of the 9hr epic solo drunkfest in Portland in Nov, 2010. Finally bowed down to a sampler tray so I can somewhat stumble out of here. Hazy gold with a white cap. Has a grainy aroma, light banana, more grains, light clove and cereals. The taste is average for a US Hefe. Weak and light citrus, lemon, grains, tart, cereal - boring. Waay too much bananaish for me. Finishes soft with a light and long lingering spice.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a hazy yellow color with a pretty hefty white head with good retention. The nose is light wheat along with clove and banana. A bit of bubblegum. The taste is pretty yeast driven with a bit of slightly-sweet wheat there as well. Good body and carbonation; a nice summer drinker. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-09-2010
