COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wisconsinite: the most Wisconsin beer ever! Made with 100% Wisconsin-grown malted barley, wheat, and hops, including a unique, first-of-its-kind, never before fermented, indigenous Wisconsin yeast strain. It pours a hazy, unfiltered, straw color with a fine white head. The mild clove, banana, and citrus aromas from the Wisconsin yeast go well with the malty sweetness and fresh baked wheat bread flavors. With its light body and lively effervescence, Wisconsinite is a refreshing summer session beer.

Pours a cloudy light golden color with a small head that fades rather quickly with nominal lacing. Aroma of banana & cloves, mild citrus and not much else. Taste of banana, cloves mild citrus with a bit of malt and spice in the background. Has a gritty bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Fairly light body, a bit coarse and grainy. Comes across as a bit too sweet. Not a beer I would seek out.

Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours god with a creamy 4 finger white head. All that comes through the foam is clove. Med body. Flavor has clove and a decent amount of banana ester. A bit wheaty in the aftertaste. Decent drink.

I've been rating a lot of beers with the same score. This one has a nice aroma of Belgian style spices. The flavor has a bit of sour lemon, the spice and a peppery hop presence. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light and refreshing, but relatively little hefe character. Full flavored, well made otherwise.

Lakefront Wisconsinite Summer Weiss is disappointing considering the brewery. I like all the beers from Lakefront, but this one just doesn’t measure up. Pour is an expected cloudy yellow with a white fluffy head. Aroma is very light yeast. Taste is also a very light banana-cloves and it disappears quickly. There is nothing to stimulate the palate. Not sure what happened to this beer, but Wisconsinite won’t be on my regular list.

12 oz. bottle. Pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma of banana and clove, mild citrus notes. Flavor is nice, light, spritzy. Nice banana, clove, and pineapple notes. Nice, spritzy mouthfeel. Finishes on a refreshing fruity note. Very nice, impressive summer beer.

This rating may be more about my preferences then about the beer - not to my taste. Overall, just too sweet , without enough other characteristics to overide that sweetness.

Pours hazy yellow with a minimal head at best. Aroma is lemon, citrus, and a bit of clove and banana. The taste is sweet with a bit of a tart finish. Overall a very refreshing hefeweizen and I would enjoy many more

Draft at Sieberts pub. Orange and clear. Dank and earthy fruit taste. Not a fan of hefe and this is another example why

This one poured with a dark amber color and a short lasting head for a Weizen. I think I bought it fresh from Binnys. Anyway, typical grainy malt with clove, banana, and citrus as advertised, with a lingering hop note and aftertaste. Not my favorite weizen, but OK.
