COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bavarian Style Hefe Weizen, or unfiltered yeasty wheat beer, brewed with 50% German wheat malt and 50% German Pilsen malts that is very lightly hopped. Flavors of banana and clove are a result of the special yeast strain that is used to ferment this beer. Prosit!!

Sampler at the pub. Probably shouldn’t have left this one for last as my palate is a little shot with all these hoppy beers already. Cloudy yellow color. Very effervescent. Champagne like. Well made beer. Lots of diversity here and all done pretty well. Worth a trip.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow with some white head. Nose of orange peel, scones, english muffin, some grass, light spice. Flavors at the same, coriander, hay, white flour, orange peel. Full finish. A touch overdone for me.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a pale hazy straw color with a large creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong clove, banana and a smoky note. The taste is wheat, citrus, banana, clove and pineapple. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing.

Nickls (1887) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Tap. Lightly hazy orange yellow hue with a smaller white fizzy head. Hints of citrus and banana in the aroma with some light fruit sweetness. Flavor is not as snappy as I would’ve liked, sligh citrus and banana...bout it, medium to thinner body with ok carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a nice white head and some pretty good lacing on the way down. Nose brings forward a bit of light wheat as well as some clove and banana. The taste draws back a bit from the nose, which was quite light itself. Mostly a bit of light wheat characteristics with a touch of sweetness. Some mild clove and banana sit in the background. Feel is light with good carbonation. Light without too much flavor, but drinks quite well. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-16-2010

Tap: Pours a hazy pale golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a tart lemon and wheaty nose, almost reminiscent of a Berliner Weisse. Body starts with average fullness and a touch of light wheaty sweetness giving way to a zesty sour lemon flavor and a touch of clove before a crisp finish. A little too tart for the style, but not a bad attempt.
