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.

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy pale golden color with a thin white head. Wonderful yeasty bready wheat aroma here; thanks to the all new Wisconsin yeast strain. It’s what this beer is all about. Banana and clove notes are a bit subdued for the style (which I like). Highly carbonated with a light somewhat creamy mouthfeel. This is what the local food movement is all about. Lets hope more brewers experiment with this idea and use this new yeast. I could imagine some wonderful things coming out of this.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Pours a hazy straw gold with a huge overflowing fluffy white head (despite some fairly gentle pouring) that has great retention. Aroma is banana, wheat, clove, cereal, bready yeast, perfumey floral notes, light spice and citrus. Flavor is wheat, banana, clove, dusty citrus, salt, spicy and floral hops, odd, berry-like fruity note and spicy and floral hops to the finish. Palate is light to medium bodied, with a creamy, but chalky feel throughout. Not bad overall. It’s nice to see more American made Hefe’s rather than the usual dishwater Wheat Ales.

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a hazy dark golden with a thin white head, aroma has notes of clove and banana, not as pronounced as I would have likes but decent, the flavor is of strong banana and bubblegum the entire way through, light mouthfeel, actually pretty darn nice.

rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Enjoyed at GTMW 2012. Pours a creamy gold with a medium white head. Smells of citrus and wheat. Creamy wheat flavor with a hint of orange with a smooth cream finish. This is one of my favorite summer beers this year.

AWISLguy (1195) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellowish orange with some white head. Some spots of lace. Aroma has belgian yeast, cloves, some earthiness and bread. Taste is of that heavier belgian yeast, some maltiness, bread dough and some clove in the back. Somewhat light. Finishes malty and bready. Not my favorite style and not the best of the ones I’ve had in it.

markwise (4429) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
12oz bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Cheers, Neal! Pours a cloudy, yeasty dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is some bread, some yeast, and some light banana and clove. Flavor is similar with mild metallic taste and big bread and slight banana. Medium in body and a summer beer for sure.

wlajwl (3771) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Aroma is lemons, bananas and a different/unique spiciness. The flavor is bananas, lemons, an undercurrent of spice fruit and mix of sweetness and tartness in the finish.

BVery (5985) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Hazy deep yellow pour with a small white head. Nice full clove, banana, and wheat in the aroma and taste. Good carbonation level - mildly lively. Solid brew.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2012
12oz bottle in Milwaukee. Light cold color with thin head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is light honey and citus. Light delicate flavors of wheat up front and sweetness in the long trailing finish. Good stuff for this hot summer day.
