Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Sweet in the front. Wonderful German weissbier finish. Only other hopped weissbier I remember having is the Schneider- Brooklyn collab Hopfenwriss. Just like that beer, this is delicious.

BeerInHeaven (223) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2015
pours a slightly murky straw gold with a thick white head. aroma is slight hay with a hint of sweet spice. The taste is pleasant but somewhat complex. hint of lemon citrus, some spice, and a little sweet malt. Some modest hop bitterness fades in lightly. Actually quite refreshing. I could see sessioning this on a hot summer day. Good beer!

Kind of spicy, like a saison. There's a little burst of cinnamon at first, and then a cavalcade of flavors start to flow. Lively. A pillowy head sits atop a bright orange body. Very nice. Might pair really well with some cheese, but sadly I don't have any. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I couldn’t quite place the cloves and hefeweiss characteristics prior to reading the description. Not because they’re not there, I just wasn’t expecting it on a beer with hop in the name. I’m impressed.

Crisp, light, with nice bans, clove, and slight citrus / grass hop flavor. Good and a bit different.

joshmcg000 (369) - Iowa, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours clear gold, lots of carbonation and a thick pillowy white head. Aroma is banannas, clove, and citrus. Similar to dancing man in terms of yeast taste. Little bit lighter and its got more grassy and citrus hops. Very good hopped up wheat.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2015 DELICIOUS. I didn?t expect a nice wheat ale to be named "Hopster". No bitterness. Sweet banana. A little watery though.
