This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with not too much of a head. There is a slight citrus and wheat aroma. The taste is light and thin with grains and lemon flavors. This makes for a very easy drinking summer beer but it could use a little work as its kind of light and thin in the flavor.

22oz bottle purchased at the brew pub, split with the wife. Pours a hazy, golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is banana and clove. A little thin on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, wheat, a little yeast, clove, banana, a hint of bubblegum, with a light yeasty finsh. AnOK wheat beer.

Hazy light amber with head cover and edge lacing. Wheat infused very lightly with citrus fruit and hop bitters "lite." It is reluctant to show its flavor, and even then, doesn’t quite deliver.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a murky pale gold with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of wheat with light notes of banana and clove. Flavor begins with sweet wheat and continues to have notes of banana, sweet citrus and clove.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb, WI. Appearance a cloudy light gold, thin white rim. Aroma of banana, bit of pineapple, straw wheat, really nice. Taste is definitely fruity, pear comes out a little bit more, ale yeast also adds the fruitiness. Pretty impressed with this one, like a standard Weiss but with more Belgian attributes.

For an American brewer brewing a Hefeweizen it isn’t bad, but a bit watery.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy, deep yellow with a slight brown ting in color, head was low for the style. Aroma has a strong pear and banana combo with a mild wheat sourness to it. Aroma is a bit off putting to my nose. Flavor had a strong banana and pear pairing that just didn’t work in my opinion. The yeast tastes stressed. The feel of the beer was good with a modest body from the yeast in suspension and a good carbonation rate. Overall not the best beer here. Flavor and nose just didn’t do anything for me. The flavors and nose seem more reminiscent of stressed yeast.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Been loving hefes lately, so this was a must-have on my latest Grumpy Troll stop. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy white head. Tons of bubble gum on the nose, with light spics. Sweet and refreshing--teetering on too sweet, but it worked with the pizza I was having, so I’ll say it wasn’t too sweet. Taste is the same bubble gum and sweet wheat, with a light mineral finish overlaid with some pear and light clove. Never tasted pear in a hefe before, but again, it worked. Well-carbonted, and just tasty as hell.
