Was surprised to see the ratings so low for this one. A hop lovers dream heffeweizen! not a tasteless wheat ale, but one that hits you in the face with the hop aroma and flavor. great heffe color and cloudiness, but its the flavor of this one that really makes it stand out. still very crisp and clean taste on the palate, not a fat, witbier taste, but very clean tight bubbles, and the great mix of hoppy and citrus zest from a heffeweizen that deserves a much higher rating than this.

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours a light golden color. Aroma and flavor both of spicy yeast and citrusy hops. Light texture. A decent beer.

On tap at Delaney’s. Moderate wheat aroma and slightly sour. Cloudy golden color with a medium white head. Light flavor gets mildly bitter in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
bctc 09, random keg sitting near the mayflower campsite. Pours a hazed golden with a diminishing head. Aroma is phenolic slight spice- clove, toasted malts, a bit of cobwebbiness, citrusy hops, and lots of lemon-zest. Flavor is somewhat doughy crackery, toast, wheat, lemon zest, pine, citrus, and grassy hops- slight slick aftertaste and finish. ok.

Draft at redlight. Very light and golden. Sweet citrusy smell. I found kind of a soapy type flavor on the end of it, but not terrible.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. The pour yields a hazy, golden colored body with a small head of swirly white foam. Minimal, spotty lacing marks the glass. The aroma shows wheat grain, minerals, and coriander, with a peppery, citrus rind hop note. Flavors follow suit, primarily based in cereal grain, with a slightly metallic, mineral note, and a light, spicy, lemongrass hop bite. Light in body and balanced on the tongue, it is quite quaffable, though the metallic tendencies are a little off-putting. There’s a slight astringency on the finish. Decent brew.

Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, some citrus, hay. Tastes of sweet wheat, spicy, some coriander, citrussy.

hopscotch (8847) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Draft… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet provides pale grain, lemon peel, underripe banana and mild clove. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is mostly bitter, but also lightly tart. Lengthy, bitter finish

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a hazy yellow, fluffy white head. Nose full of citrus and pine hops, some tart wheat and a bit of sulphur comes through as it warms. Flavor is citrus slightly grassy hops, some wheat, nice bitter finish, no sulphur. Wouldn’t mind having this in cans, quite drinkable.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Growler. Some lemon and banana and maybe a hint of wheat in the nose, but mostly metallic, seedy, salty, buttery. Flavor focuses on all the bad parts of the aroma. Astringent as well. Not pleasant.
