COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our own version of the classic hefeweizen style with a Midwest twist. Brewed with white wheat from Wisconsin, this blonde ale is lively and fresh. We engineered this wheat ale to appeal to those favoring a lighter beer. Our wheat ale is purposefully cloudy in the glass and mild on the palate.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2008
(bottle) Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is initially lightly sweet with a scent of strawberries, but there is a hint of toast in there as well. Aroma changes to more of a blend between the sweet and grain, which makes me think of cereal with dried fruits in it. This is quite different than the standard banana and yeast that most hefes display. A hint of spice emerges later which I believe is clove. The taste is really bland with an almost undetectable sweetness to begin with, followed up by a light taste of lemon/minerals, that then gives way to an obnoxious grainy finish that does not go away soon enough. Medium bodied.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Cloudy orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma of corn, grain, yeast, wheat and fruit. Taste of wheat, sweet malt, corn, banana and lemon. Lively carb feel that has a dry corny finish. Not really a standard hefeweizen, more of a golden ale.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours a cloudy light golden with a medium off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet citrus and wheat. Flavor is a bit of wheat, light banana, light pepper and a lot of citrus. Finishes somewhat short and very citric. Really more of a blond ale fermented with hefe yeast.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Cloudy light golden color with a moderate yellow cream colored head. Quite active effervescence (3+). Light dry wheat and some citric zest in the scent. Quite generic and uneventful. Mild sweet wheat start that is quickly turned away by a sharp citric and bitter turn. Grapefruit and bitter citric peels amass in the middle and finish. Some hints of banana and a touch of white pepper in the linger. A faint hint of earth and smoke in the linger as well. low yeast profile. Interesting wheat ale.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a murky golden color with a small sized white head. Lots of large and ugly floaters that thankfully quickly settled to the bottom of the glasss. Aromas of yeast, wheat, and light bananas. Tastes of bananas, wheat, with very light spices.

WisconsinBeer (704) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle, consumed after a long hot day at work. Lazy hazy sunset yellow in color. Head is brief but diminishing with just a bit of lacing. Flavor is predominately wheat, with mild hints of fruitiness and some straw. Lively carbonation. Comes across as dry for a wheat beer. Pretty solid, not amazing, but good for sure.

Tripplebrew (774) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours a very hazy golden yellow with medium cream-colored head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is yeast, not necessarily banana but a creamy fruit. Flavor is creamy, hints of banana, yeast. Carbonation is fair to high with medium head.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Cloudy golden yellow with a medium head. A bit of banana nose. Medium mouthfeel that is quite nice. This is a real good hefe. The flavor is strong of banana and has a strong wheat finish. Not bad, has a bit of hops in the end as a bit of alcohol.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2007
On draught at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that has a good retention and lacing. Aroma of light multi-grain malt, some tropical fruits, subdued yeast and sweet citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated, with a bready malt and a touch of fruit flavors. Finish is semi-sweet with a bready aftertaste and very little bitterness.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Bottle. Citrusy sweet aroma with a hint of banana/wheat essence. Pours murky straw yellow. Subdued flavor profile offering little more that a hint of wheat and some nice bitter hops on the finish. Refreshing.
