Bottle brought back from Wisconsin. Pours yellow gold with a nice rocky white head that lasts and plenty of bubble trails. Aroma and taste of banana, clove, and orange. Clear and assertive. I can see why it’s rated highly for this style- wish I had a few more.

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!

Bottle. Golden with medium white head. Aroma of wheat, hints of clove, and slight yeast funk. Light body, moderate floral bitterness, banana, a nice wheat body, and a crisp finish.

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.

ccex (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with lots of bubbles rising to a large fluffy head. Aroma has wheat, cloves, bananas, and some citrus hops. Taste is sweet and spicy until a bitter hoppy finish kicks in. Body is light with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. This was an unexpected surprise, with the best features of a witbier, and hefeweizen together.

backdaft (260) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow color with a big foamy white head. Aromas of bread, banana, cloves, and citrus hops. Taste is similar with a notable wheat presence. Some really nice grapefruit-like bitterness from the hops. Light body with ample carbonation. Finish is dry with a mild lingering bitterness. Very unique. Very nice.

Suttree (5376) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Cloudy yellow, with a thin ring of foam. Smells like stone, banana, and toast. Flavor is clean, fresh hops, some stoney notes, and fresh bread. Tasty stuff!
