3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle served in a shaker. Hazy golden orange pour with a thin head of lasting off-white foam that produced some good lacing. The aroma of the beer had fresh oranges, grass, high quality wheat, grass, and mild spicy yeast esters. The flavor included wheat, citrus, and a grassy bitterness. A hoppy hefe...I like it. Medium-bodied and creamy. Softly carbonated. I’m glad they didn’t use a cleaner American wheat yeast strain. The hefe characteristics really shine through under the hops. Nicely done!

Much closer to a pale ale, Hopster reminds me of New Glarus Moon Man with a slightly reduced hop bite. The malted wheat does give the beer a smooth backbone for the hops to jump off. A nice brew, delightful from a bottle on a warm fall day.

In a 12oz bottle. Flavor is banana-heavy fruit salad with a big dose of hops. Despite all of that going on, the flavor is strikingly dry. One of those summer-in-a-glass kind of beers.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear radiant gold. Big rich lusciously creamy lasting white head. Creamy wheat. Great yeast character. Gentle banana and peppery spice, some bubblegum. Citrusy hops perfectly layered within. Soft with a little zip. Semi dry finish with a hint of spiciness. Superbly made as always, seeming as though they’ve been making it for generations. Its modern yet traditional. Nothing gimmicky.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint glass. Pours mostly clear, bright gold, medium head that foams away fairly slowly. Mild aroma of citrus peel, hay, a little candied fruit. Flavor is similarly mild - honey in the background makes a little bit of an impression, but mostly just citrus and wheat as expected.

12 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours a near-clear gold with a substantial white head. Aromas are banana, clove, and citrus. Tastes are more hefeweizen than APA with banana and some spiciness being dominant. A little chalky with a dry spicy finish. Very unique beer.
