Pours a hazy lemon orange with thick frothy white head. Aroma is hay, clove, bread dough. Flavor is a mix of banana, clove, caramel. Body is creamy but offset with very active carbonation.

islay (1055) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2014
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 aren’t 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!

Great classic Hefe. Cloudy hazy yellow. Lots of bready yeasty flavor. Nice tanginess. Subtle hops. So good.

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.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2013
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.

Hazy straw pour with a medium soapy white head. Aroma is yeasty, clove, light banana wheat. Flavour is lemon, clove, grainy wheat. Light soapy tinge to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3657) - 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.

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 I’d definitely try again.
