COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique surprise cross-pollinates the classic American wheat beer with an American Pale Ale. What grows next is a fruitfully unfiltered union with a delightful hop aroma, a pleasant citrus hop flavor, and a beautifully balanced finish that leaves other ales hoppy green with springtime envy.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 In short: A wheat beer (with bananas and all) hopped like an IPA. A successful experiment
How: Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Festival 2010
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a medium of-white head leaving good lacings
In long: Fun and original nose blending oranges, bananas and pine-tree. Taste has lightly toasted wheat, baguette bread, fresh bananas, citrus fruits, some pine-tree. Bitterness in the medium range. This beer was described as a wheat beer hopped like and American IPA. A strange idea but the result was actually quite convincing. The wheat/bananas of the hefe really came through and worked very well with the moderate citrusy/pine-tree hopping. What a surprise, might be the best thing I’ve had from Magic Hat. I hope they bottle this one day. Highly sessionnable. And it made me feel as if I was somebody, I came back twice for an Encore.

Cavie (3748) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Fratto. We shared it 3 months ago but I was wearing my shorts on my head at the time so I am choosing to re-rate it now. Clear yellow color, little head. Smells of wheat grain and citrus. Flavor is quite dry. Lemon flavor prevails throughout. Wheaty as well. Finishes slightly dry. I was more excited when I had my shorts on my head than when I tried this now.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white 3 finger head. Aromas of wheat and mown hay. Phosgene? Nah. Medium body with mildish carbonation. Flavor is spice and a hint of banana. Or a light, light bubble gum. Bitter finish. Refreshing stuff.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 27, 2010
In the bottle from Leukens Liquors. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium white head. Doughy aroma is very yeasty with a touch of orange blossom. Very much a Belgian wit with a strong coriander flavor. Fizzy palate. Finishes quite mild.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Slightly hazed light golden hue with a fading fizzy head and some lace. The weak aroma has notes of pale grains and some wheat, light herbal and fruity hops, soapy yeast esters and a hint of pepper and clove. The taste is a slightly hopped up crappy American wheat with no interesting character. While there is some fruity and bitter notes, they fade far too quickly leaving you a muddled wheaty and yeasty finish that is quite boring. Just like the beer before it, there is some sourness creeping into the flavor profile and makes me question the quality control of this brewery once again. The mouth feel is about the best aspect of this brew, lively and crisp enough to enjoy while the husky finish is not too bothersome. Why do I keep buying beer from this brewery? Only a few have they ever met expections... (Hint, maybe you all want to ask Three Floyds how to do a hoppy wheat ale)
