Our first unfiltered beer; made with whole wheat, two kinds of barley and hops and our Kolsch yeast for a refreshing beer with a crisp finish.

Pours a murky, clouded golden bronze with a frothy, thin-lacing white head. Aroma of lemony citrus and a touch of black pepper. Body starts with a mild doughy pale malty sweetness giving way to tart lemon citrus and a dry, muddled finish. An ok American wheat, but needs some more distinction, and perhaps a little less tartness.

A good wheat, for sure. Not a style I’m particularly crazy about, but this one is actually very nice. Pours the expected hazy light gold, rocky head and decent lacing. Aroma is quite yeasty, also some lemons, a very spritzy quality in the nose. Flavor is maltier than a lot of beers in the style, and the Kolsch yeast really blends well, better than wheats with ale yeasts. All in all, a very good example of the style that comes across as a bit "bigger" than others, but is quite refreshing and enjoyable.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Cloudy light peach color with a diminishing frothy off-white head. Light aroma. Scents of a lightly salty soft pretzel. Soft wheat flavors abound through the quaff. Soft and pleasant. A mild sweet wheat and barley flavor. A touch grainy at times. This has to one the better american wheat I have had.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is hard to detect but i do get some vanilla and yeast. Flavor is very weak and dull. Nothing really going on here. Very watery with some notes of lemon and yeast but overall bland.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Cloudy, dull lemon hue with sinking yeasty chunks and a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of clove, bubble gum, mild citrus, and a note of alcohol. Flavor is of orange juice, mild banana esters, and lightly sweet wheat. Medium body with significant carbonation. A decent American-made hefeweizen in my book. Thanks Eric.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with TannerTavernboys (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of yeast, wheat, lemons and light clove. Tastes of wheat, lemon with a touch of a honey sweetness. Creamy body.

Terminus (3567) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2005
bottle-pours a cloudy apricot hue with a small fizzy white head. grainy, husky wheat character with faint hops and a very dry yeast note. good wheat flavors with lots of yeast-dry. light hops. fairly solid palate for this style-only minimally watery. i think this would be much better on tap. This beer will be revisitied. some more hop bitterness would be a plus as well.

Bottle purchased at Gomer’s Midtown in Kansas City, MO in June ’05. This is an example of a beer whose quality you cannot judge by its cover. The label is about as basic as can be; something you could create on cheap graphics software. Not a bad aroma. At first whiff, it is slightly tart and citrusy. Second sniff, fuller and fruitier. Doesn’t really have the banana or clove thing going on. Crystal clear gold until the end of the bottle is swirled and dumped into the rest of the beer. It then becomes cloudy, dark urine yellow. Even though I poured it into a pilsener glass, which is known for creating big head, the head was only average in size and quickly dissipated, and eventually became nonexistent. Pretty good flavor. A well above average unfiltered American hefe. Fairly full-bodied, pleasant and enjoyable. Not sure what the shelf life is of this brew, but I bought it in late June and am consuming it in early September. I’m wondering if it would be better, livlier, when fresh. Still, I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 In the bottle from Dirty John’s. Pours a cloudy deep golden yellow. Head is white, but does not last long. No pronounced aroma, just subtle wheat and grain smells. Medium carbonation. Tingly at first sip, it quickly emerges with a whallop of sweetness and subsides to an abrupt finish. No brutal kolsch bite at all, so this yeast works for this one. Great summer beer. UPDATE: On tap at the 2006 Best of the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. Great banana and wheat blended aroma!

Bottle: The aroma is sweet. A little bit of citrus, urine, yeast, and clove. The appearnce struck me with its very large fizzy white head. Its a pale golden color. A quite carbonated beer. The taste is very sweet. The flavor is a bit light and weak. Rather watery, almost like if you took half a bottle of wheat a half a bottle of cider and mixed it with a liter of water. A touch of vanilla, corrieander, bubble gum, citrus, malt, clove flavors but none stand out and none are readily identifiable just a touch watery, imo but lots of flavors there just not enough strength to them.
