COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sarah Billick, a friend of Lisaís, spent a year taking classes and interning at the Isar Brau Brew Pub in Munich. She brought back the recipe for their Wheat Beer, and we made it here at the brewery. The Isarweizen will vary from year to year, but usually has some clove, nutmeg, banana, and tutti-frutti aromas, with the clove and nutmeg taking the lead. A little acidity balances with the sweetness of the beerís fruit flavors. Crisp and refreshing - just the thing for summer. Available in late May (1.012 BG, 4.8%, 15 IBU, 5 SRM)

22 oz bomber poured into a totally inappropriate Warsteiner mug, from "Lifesource" ,Salem. $4.99 Cloudy yet almost glowing sunshine golden beer..tiny head..good lace. Good phenolic,yeasty,hay,fresh baked bread andherbal aromas. Taste is like the aroma maybe got a bit of juicy fruitiness, cherrys and more "bubblegum" Nice palate..OK for style..goes down well on a 90 degree night. Good hefe..but i still prefer my Paulaner!!!!!!!

Bottle @ home, very generously shared by 3fourths. Been wanting to try this one for ages. Apparently this is an Amber Weizen. This entry currently states that itís an Autumn Seasonal and the description states it is available in late May but thereís no born on date to confirm this. Pours a cloudy, bright orange appearance with a thin, off white head. Very spicy- big nutmeg, big clove- caramel, burnt banana, a bit peppery aroma. Again, incredibly spicy flavor and fairly effervescent. Caramel, burnt malty, a touch watery, banana, nutmeg, light cinnamon, citrusy, strangely a touch smoky flavor. Really not like the kind of German Hefeweizen that I typically enjoy. Ok.

In short: A full bodied round wheat lager with a tiny bit of a smoky twist. Very good.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after purchase. Bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Cloudy dark amber body topped by a off-whitebeige head with low retention
In long: Nose is banana cake, light spicy notes (cinnamon, cloves) and some pleasant smoky notes. Body is full but the carbonation is rather low, soft bubbles here and there. Taste has wet hay, sun dried hay, soggy banana cake, freshly baked apple pie, spicy notes (cinnamon, cloves), browned banana peels, dried yellowed grass. Overall a very good lager, but to me very good is disappointing from Heater Allen with their Pils and Costal being so excellent. Iím not sure my bottle was supposed to have such a low carbonation, will be worth trying again to see. This is my 5400th rating, thatís quite a lot, fortunately Iím not afraid my wife finds out about my ratebeer account and realizes how much time and money I spend on beer, if you ever see that I entered a rating that says "www.google.com", thatís my wife trying to use the internet, leave her alone.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from Corvallis. Pours a lightly hazed orange-gold with a white head. Nose is cloves, light banana and faint citrus. Clean. On tasting, light tartness, grainy wheat malt and banana esters. Some light cloves. Overall, perhaps a bit too light bodied to compete with the classics. Still, very drinkable and tasty.

TheEpeeist (3371) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
22 oz bottle. Foggy orange yellow with white froth. Nose is fresh dough, lemon peel, parsley and sugar cookie. Wheaty but not pasty with crisp carb and a juicy finish. Taste is lime, wheat and green banana with a touch of herbs, maybe marjoram. Very nice as it warms.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Excellent wheat, banana, and clove aromas. A hint of bubblegum, light citrus and acidity, some floral notes, and a pleasant sweetness. The flavor has a nice wheat bread character to it, excellent malt sweetness, banana, and moderate clove. Good citrus character, light floral hops, and a good yeasty flavor. Really a nice beer.

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat and clove - pretty standard, but very pleasant. Flavour is fairly subtle, with lots of wheat, a little banana and clove, and more wheat. Kind of watery, mostly characterized by the wheat. I donít get the ratings on this, as itís quite subpar for a hef - fairly weak with lots of missing body. First time Iíve been disappointed by this brewery.

cmonster (978) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle served in a weiss glass. Hazy dark orange with a medium-size white head. Good retention and decent lace. Bright aroma of cloves, banana, and sweet, mealy malt. Light-med sweet malty flavor. Also a hint of salt and tartness. Medium body, light-creamy texture, average carbonation, and a near crisp finish. Another nice effort from this fabulous nano brewery.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
650ml bomber pours a cloudy light orange color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is banana and cloves with some light citrus and earthy tones. Taste is light fruit sweetness with the clove spice and a light sourness from the citrus likely lemon. Light to medium bodied with some lively carbonation. A pretty good representation of the style.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAR 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 Cloudy bronze pour with an ample sand colored head. Classic nose of banana, cinnamon, and clove; but there is also a pie-like apple and pear character that marries very well with the toasty, crusty wheat malt. The yeast sings here, and lends a very nice rustic quality to the lightly sweet flavor. Carbonation is smooth and creamy. Medium bodied, a bit slick, with extremely low bitterness in the finish. Really nice, classic hefe here. The strong, silent type. Standing solid and unassuming in the background, watching over some of its higher-rated American brothers as they dance around in their íimperializedí costumes.
