COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncle Otto’s Weiss Beer. For a beer so refreshing, it’s a very complex, satisfying taste. A special yeast produces esters, compounds that replicate subtle flavors of fruits and spices. This fermentation provides the most critical component of the extremely distinctive flavor. So distinctive, in fact, that trying to describe it leaves one struggling for comparisons; some may find cloves, even banana!

typical nice cloudy, hazy orangish color with a nice medium white head. mild citrus and clove aroma. taste is of mild clove spiciness with banana and citrus notes, quite refreshing and well done.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2003
New batch for summer 2003:Golde beer with orange highlights and a definite hefe haze(poured mit hefe of course!); definite bubblegum and clove aroma from a proper German weissbier yeast, plus rose petal, tangerine and strawberry aromas. The small head dissipated quickly, but the flavor is very fresh and lively, whith just enough lactic acidity to make for a nice long wheat aftertaste. One of the best American brewed German style weiss beers.

Bottle. This accidentally sat on my fridge shelf for about 5 months, so I was expecting the worst but it was okay. Milky-golden pour. Tastes more like a hefe than a true "wheat beer", yeasty, standard banana-clove with maybe a bit more crispness than I expected. Decent stuff with a sweet finish that I liked a lot.

While McTarnahan's might be my favorite brewery when it comes to non-wheat beers, their failure to execute when brewing Weissbiers is uncharacteristic of their otherwise immensely high standards. Tastes more like an American Wheat due to its muted yeasty nature. Drinkable, though.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Citrusy, tangy wheat aroma. Yeast, bit of bubblegum. Small white head and some lacing. Beautiful cloudy pumpkin orange color. Bright. High carb and medium silky, watery body. Very tart, citrusy up front. Hits back of the tongue with an assault. Good wheat/yeast flavor. Sourness detracts. Sour weak after. Overall, has weak flavor, and tartness is a downer.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Dark yellow golden color with some sediment. Smells floral like a Belgian. Not very impressed.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2003
hazy amber in color, unusual for the style. Very thin whispy, white head. Clove-citrus aroma, a little spicy too. Moderately carbonated on the tongue, the medium bodied taste had a malty wheatiness to it followed by a citric bitterness. Very fine sediment settled at the bottom of the glass. Not bad!

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Golden color with a light head. A floral and clove aroma with some citrus. A floral and clove taste with some sour lemon notes. Some hops and a bit bitter with a drying finish.

This is just like Pyramid's Hefe, no aroma, no taste, very bland. What is it with these west coast wheat's, are they supposed to be this boring and lacking in flavor. Can someone recommend a good west coast wheat to me, please.
