We dedicate this hef to the German housewives who brewed all of the household and community beer until the 8th century. This German wheatís thick white head tops a smooth wave of vanilla and bubblegum.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 April 11th, 2013 - Lone Tree is back, and improving with each visit and beer. This time Iím enjoying a beautiful Spring day with a beautifully Springy beer: the Hausfrau Hefeweizen. The hay colored brew is murky and muddy and blonde, with a low crown of white foam circling the inside of the brew. Lemony, spritzy, even garnished with a touch of lime, the aroma is clean and bright and refreshing and practically the smell of an April day itself. The flavor is somewhat tangier, almost like a shadow of tzaziki sauce, butter, lime and a medium-low carbonation that floats a mineral aftertaste, and a refreshing, breezy sigh after every sip. December 11th, 2011 - With breweries popping up around the country like so many mushroom caps after a rainy itís hard not to have a local brewery close to home. True, like mushrooms, they tend to cluster. But even the cultural wastes of suburbia have their own breweries, including Lone Tree, serviced by the quaint Lone Tree Brewing. It reminds me a lot of Dry Dock. Their facilities are wedged into a faceless, generic office park, neighbors to a computer repair office, itself tucked into a pocket of commercial space near an old suburban neighborhood. On my first tour there back in December, 2011 the brewmasters there appeared to be focused on their main line-up, including all the classic styles a brewer thinks he might need in order to make some early market gains and sales. Thus, I began with Lone Tree Brewingís Hefeweizen. Itís inscrutable thickness, almost like a honeyed yogurt, slowly recedes from the glass to produce a wave-patterned head atop the brew. A spritz of lemon greets the nose, alongside the more acidic and acerbic sweetness of lime, and an aromatic base of mineral water. A sip reveals a tangy brew - more lemon and lime sweetness, an (likely) accidental glistening taste of butter and a light wheat flavor all served on a medium carbonation with a medium long aftertaste. Itís nothing worth breaking out the hymns and praises for, but itís a solid offering, and does good work with the citrus flavor blend.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2012 Tap @ brewery. Cloudy, light banana yellow appearance with a white head. Spicy clove, bubblegum, yeasty, wheat malty aroma. Fairly sweet, banana/clove flavor at the beginning and leads to a soapy, peppery finish. A little bit of citrusy tartness. Ok.

A very tart, semi-dry hefe, with strong banana overtones and light touches of peppery character - some sweet notes of apple and a slight bready character through the middle, but it starts tart and ends slightly sweet (vanilla) and spicy (pepper) - a good start, but needs more umpf to hold up to the German examples.

Cloudy light gold with a laceful thin head. Nice aroma of bubblegum and clove, wheat, perhaps a little bit of peppery rye as well. Nice smooth wheaty flavor that doesnít go too far into the bubblegum, thankfully. Nice clove and yeast notes, smooth flavorful body. Tastes pretty textbook.

Pour is very hazy straw yellow with big fluffy white head, at the brewery, nice looking. Aroma is sweet pear, banana, bubblegum, peach notes, hints of earth but no spice. Taste is sweet biscuit, pear and apricot going into banana and slight spice, finishing fairly sweet. Pretty good, needs a bit more spice to get it really up there.
