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.
