COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here is our "Wheat Beer with Yeast." Beers brewed with a high proportion of wheat yield a crisp and refreshing flavor profile, while the addition of our special yeast adds a blend of complex citrus and spice flavors...forget the lemon wedge, this Hef' has plenty of flavor!

Draft @ Montana’s in Orchard Park. By far the worst hefe I’ve even had. No positive qualities besides being only $1.50 per pint. Some banana & citrus notes but lacking in body & over all quality

Pours a three finger white head that goes quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color, yeast in bottle of bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet lemon nose. Starts sweet and lemony, hints of bubblegum at finish - now that’s different for a wheat. Misses the style with no wheat or yeast flavors, but it isn’t a bad beer. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle - Poured a hazy amber in color with a thin bright white head that faded to a very thin rim around the top of the beer. Aroma is quite strong of bananas, but not much of the classic "clove" mixed in. Smells somewhat artificial. Flavor is also strong of bananas without the bready/yeasty character traditional in this beer type. OK, but not my favorite...

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2006
(Bottle from Lou’s Beverage Barn) Pours a slightly yellowish light orange, cloudy.Very tall white foamy head. Nose is yeasty, sourish, citrus and spice. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, has a bit of a bite. Sloppy spots of foamy lacing. Flavor is slightly sour with citrus and spice, a bit yeasty. Kind of tangy. Pretty good.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 9, 2006
12 ounce bottle. Unsure where this was purchased. Spicy, peppery, crisp, light banana and light citrus aroma. Moderately hazy, orangey-yellow body with an off-white head that is fairly frothy with decent lacing. Creamy, spicy, spritzy, slightly lemony flavors present in the start. Turns a little doughy in the middle with a malty finish. Pretty good, but a touch thin.

Any first impressions?
-A voluminous ring of foam forever crowns the shiny golden haze.
-Booming banana esters are soon reduced to minty, clovey spiciness and dryness in the nose.
-Mild banana sweetness and hay-like, crunchy wheat character timidly converse.
-The fizzy carbonation almost overcomes the lean maltiness.

What if you dig deeper?
-Clovey phenols develop nicely throughout, playing with the dry yeastiness.
-The aftertaste is reclusive and yeasty, a little too dry and characterless for my tastes in the style.
-Carbonation’s slightly too active, exposing the beer’s relative thinness.
-Nothing special to be found here, just an easy-drinking weizen for those days when you don’t feel like thinking.

Bottle; no date.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Hazy golden orange, dense creamy ivory head. Smells of big ripe bananas. Nice banana esters. Some lemon and crisp wheat malt. Crisp mouth, slighlty sour wheat malt in the aftertaste. Refreshing. One of the more interesting and estery American hefes I’ve had. Very nice, Long Trail!

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Smells overwealmingly of banana. Yellow-orange body withi initially thick but quickly dissipating white head. Tastes of banana and citrus, but not much else. A little hop bitterness on the finsh but not a whole heck of a lot. Medium body. Pleasant and flavorful, definitely better than some hefeweizens I’ve ever had. Yummy, but not quite as well balanced as it could be.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2006
This offering pours a cloudy two-tier dark orange on top and light gold on the bottom that leaves a thick off-white head. The aroma is nice, banana, cloves, wheat, must, and a little sour acidic aroma. The taste starts sweet, ripe banana, apple, wheat, that is followed by a crisp carbonation filled with a mildly bitter hop balance. The finish is somewhat watery not as flavorful in the finish as I like but a good version of a Hefe-Weizen. Nice to see an American brewery tackling the style.
