651mL thanks to mattyb83. Pours a dirty, darker orange, fuller haze. Weak white head. No retention. Spotty lace. Nose is tangerine, sharp pear, vanilla, baked cinnamon apples. Taste is very bland, cereal, watery. Palate is doughy, small soap, thinner palate.

On tap at Republic. Pours a cloudy pale yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of clove with spice an d sweet wheat. Flavor is sweet with wheat up front with wheat up front with banana and clove in the finish.

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Pour on tap, very hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, clove, slight banana, touch of biscuit, bread, hints of earth, touch of vanilla and lemon. Taste is a mix of lemon, white fruit, touch of clove, banana, finishing fairly dry and spicy yeast. Pretty nice, but not super complex.

Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy and golden. Perfect aroma -- banana, one of the oddest resulting beer aromas ever, I need to learn the science of that. This drinks with a sweet edge, same banana, and even a little pineapple. Creamy feel. For style, quite good and quite authentic to the Bavarians. (#5654, 8/28/2014)

22 ounce bottle pours a nice cloudy golden orange color. Aromas of oranges, light banana, tons of wheat, and some light grain. Flavors are all wheat up front and tons of oranges after the first taste. Really nice beer and very enjoyable for the summer time.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2013
I haven’t had that much Steel Toe, but by the looks of their average ratings, I need to try more. This beer was an o.k. effort, though flawed. There’s a strong character to it, especially in the flavor. The initial flavor seemed big, though a hint artificial, such was the orange, bubblegum, and banana. Yeasty, yes. Yet, despite a fizziness, the experience seemed watery, too. It rang a bit hollow. O.k., but not great, esp. in the mid-palate to finish. Bottle.

22 oz bottle purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is a fully hazed light orange with a small 1/4 inch white head. The aroma is a somewhat sharp grain wheat, along with clove and some dry grass. The taste is the wheat grain, much softer than the nose, blended nicely with the clove and grass. The palate is light bodied, un-filtered mouth feel, soft carbonation, bit of mineral with a somewhat watery finish. Simple, straight forward beer, enjoyable. I like hefe’s that don’t throw off too much banana and bubblegum; this one fit that bill.
