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

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Tap @ Bittercreek: Pours a hazy gold color with a nice light white head. The nose is fresh and light with a husk and spicy snappy wheat note along with some fresh light citrusy hops. The flavor is very estery with bananas and cloves along with light wheat and some husky notes. The spelt adds a light herbal quality that also lightens up the mouthfeel a bit. Nice spin on the Hefe, I like it, sometimes the wheat can make the mouthfeel too big and sappy yet starchy, not sweet.
