From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 11/10/2007 (Brewed at Pittsburgh according to festival programme) Fruity aroma. Golden coloured and slightly hazy in appearance with a fruity banana flavour. Crisp and bitter finish.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an astoundingly murky yellow banana peel color with a huge creamy white head that lingers forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was citrus, banana and clove though a bit faint. The flavor was tart citrus, banana, clove and a touch of bubblegum. The finish was long with lingering citrus and banana. Fairly full bodied and chewy. Nicely done.

Yes, this is unfiltered. Has that spicy weizen or wit bier aroma, heavy on the olfactory. Very attractive smells and appearance. My taste buds are watering before i even sip it. Lots of spice in this brew, revealed on the first taste. Clove, bandannas, coriander? Absolutely no bitterness can be detected, yummy. Simply delicious. Light, lovely and friendly. Hey I know I like this style but this is a pretty good sample! Good tingly carbonation that is common with this style, very nice. My favorite so far of all the rock bottom brews I’ve had. Fine example of a brewpub weizen. Would not hesitate to get this one again! Rates right up there with most of the good weizens I’ve tasted including Erdinger.
