COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Solstice Weiss is gently brewed, in the time honored tradition, using 60% malted wheat and a triple fermentation. This is a true Bavarian style Weiss bier. “Weiss” means white in Bavaria, which refers to the yeast that remains in our unfiltered bier. Note the brilliant white froth and subdued golden hue. Expect this bier to have a soft champagne like quality, complemented by a wheat character that sparkles with fruity tones.

Bottle from Styles. Light yellow colored and just a touch cloudy. No head. Clove, bananna and a touch of smoke in aroma. Light bodied, decently carbonated. Requisite flavors for a decent wheat beer. Decent.

I forgot to swirl the bottle before opening at the Noogfest. The body was lightly hazy with a bright quality. The aroma of banana and clove was very pronounced. The taste of bananas and clove was very nice. The full body finished spicy with a hint of bell pepper.

Hazy yellow (light gold). Nice sweet fruity banana aroma. Huge fruity banana flavor, with a good clove balance. Some spices and just enough malt provide a good balanced strong back to this beer. Really good stuff

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 Light hazy orange/yellow in my glass. Wispy head. The aroma had syrupy banana bread and spice. Wow, what a flavor! Very fruity (cotton candy like) with banana, clove (and other spice) and honey. Syrupy body, lingering. My wife thought it had a hint of cinnamon, coriander, and bananas. She also noted an orange flavor at the finish. We both liked it.

Solid all around - Hazy pale yellow, with a sizey whaite head. Really nice lemon custard aroma. Familiar wheat flavors - notes of vanilla, banana, bubblegum - blended together in a smooth, slightly viscous palate. Really tasty.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2005
Hazy gold-copper hue with a frothy, eggshell head. Wonderfull real bubble gum and fresh banana aroma. Nice wheat presence in the aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: pretty good, but there are some better German examples out there.

Sweeeeeeeet. A bubblegum/cloves explosion with a smallish white head and a body so deep sunshine yellow it was glowing. Mouthfeel round but body a bit thin. Tad cloying towards the end of the glass. Leaves a bubblegum aftertaste. Aroma bubblegum, pears, cloves, and dough. Taste same with hints of vanilla and deep, massive, candied fruit sweetness. I like sweet weizens. Others may not. But for me this rocked.
