22 oz bottle. Pours a very hazy lazy sunshine yellow color with a quickly dissipating head. Flavors are wheat, banana, yeasty esters. Light bodied. Finish is crisp and clean, with just a hint of pepper or clove spice. Solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint pour at Muddy Waters in Minneapolis while watching Germany demolish Brazil in the World Cup. Pours a hazy, cloudy, opaque, light orange-ish tan with a small amount of beige head. Apricot nectar-like appearance. Looks good. Scents of tart green apple, honey, minerals, and watermelon. Very strong aroma. Nice, creamy hefeweizen taste features a cinnamon element. Tart flavor. Frothy and lively in the palate. Light body. Very good palate, especially for a hefeweizen. Overall, Steel Toe Sommer Vice is an above average hefeweizen. The flavors arenít strong but they are pleasant, and the appearance, aroma, and palate stand out.

The aroma is a bit stale but you get the banana and bread in there. Nice wheat profile and banana and clove and ends sweet. Pretty solid hefe!

Generally like hefeweizens, this one started out good, nice anticipated aroma, then all the favors were there, but the presentation was so watery it was distracting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Republic in Minneapolis. Floral, yeasty, honeyish aroma. Thin light apple juice color. Blondish, wheaty maltiness, very light hopping, and just a little banana. Thin-medium body. Hopping seems just right, not overdone, and complements the malt. Pretty decent.

I havenít 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. Thereís 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very cloudy, light, pale yellow, with nothing in the way of head. Aroma is dominated by a pronounced sour banana smell. Flavor is likewise mainly banana and fruit esters. Full, solid mouthfeel. This is a very good take on a Weiss beer, maybe not as complex as some, but one Iíd definitely try again.
