Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep yellow-orange beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is loaded with zesty lemony hops, herbs and a touch of wheaty spice. Light banana and peach with some light orange character as well. Flavour shows a lot of fresh zesty spicy/noble hops. Lots of fresh wheaty character, lightly lemony with a bit of lingering resinous character. It is quite similar in profile to the Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen Weisse and it is damn tasty. I’d like the body to be a bit fuller, but this is still a lovely brew. I’d love to see more of these hoppy hefeweizens... it’s a damn tasty take on the style.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2009
On tap at Taco Mac Metropolis - Pours a beautiful very cloudy yellow/orange with an extremely small white head. Obviously not filtered. Smells mostly of large quantities of hops with some wheat notes present in the nose. First sip is sweet, malty, and hoppy with the wheat balancing well with the hops. It is not nearly as hoppy as the aroma indicated. Mouthfeel is good bordering on the light side. Very tasty indeed.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some spices. It doesn’t smell like a hefe--lots of hop oils in the aroma. Flavor is hoppy initially with a wheaty finish. Clove and citrus present too. Very tasty. A very unique hoppy hefe. Well done! 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

Tap at BT last week. Aroma of apricot, other tropical fruits, floral notes, clove, a touch of bubblegum, wheat. Flavor more apricot hoppiness with a bunch of wheat base. Mildly dry. Quite tasty.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 15, 2009
On tap. Pours a cloudy golden color. Aroma is big time centennial hops. Flavor is very hoppy and very wheaty. This is a pretty neat little American take on a German Weisse. Worth a try!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at Blind Tiger. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color with a fluffy white head. Attractive aroma of orange blossom and subdued banana. Light to medium bodied and dry with minimal bitterness. tasted of flowery hops, yeasty bread dough, and a bit of banana. There was also a hint of wet stone. Reminded me a bit of New Glarus Cracked Wheat. Yum.

12.7 oz bottle from the brewery labeled as Smuttlabs Schmutzig Hazy golden orange color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Bready malt with light citrus and hints of banana and clove. Nice flavorful easy drinking brew.

Draft at The Porter.Pours a cloudy old gold with white head and leaves light lacing on the glass. The aroma is intoxicating: honey, hops, grass, cloves, and subtle licorice. Flavor starts grainy with spice and lots of noble hops. The mid-palate is bitter and spicy: cloves, peppery phenols, and bitter citrus rind. The beer has a long and lingering finish that is dry and bready with noble hops and light notes of yeast and spice. Mouthfeel is medium in body and slippery and lively with carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer, but not as refreshing as a less hoppy weizen. But it is still drinkable and flavorful.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 13, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger: Nice cloudy golden with a strong lacing white head. Strong citrus hop aroma as well as a crisp lemon note from the fresh wheat mash. Some light banana and clove esters and plasticy phenolics. Quite inviting aroma. Fluffy bodied. Nice earthy, gritty flavor. A bit mineraly- spicy hop notes mesh with some dry phenolics make it seem mineraly with notes of white peppery. A balanced and interesting Hefeweizen. Nice one.
