One can trace this special wheat ale to a time when Bavarian monks brewed outside the German Purity Law of 1516 which states that wheat not be used in brewing beer. How lucky we are that German beer drinkers and brewers reached a compromise and Weiss beer lives on! Our special Weiss beer is a real unfiltered, cloudy German what ale with spice banana bread flavors and a slight caramel finish.

Enjoyed on tap at the restaurant for New Year’s Eve. Very impressed, although it seems more like a hefe, than just a wheat ale.

On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy light golden yellow with a thin head, the aroma was of slight spices with bread and crackers, the flavor has a decent amount of bread mixed in with the light malt, pretty easy drinking, not bad.

Draft. Poured an hazy dark yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet fruit and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

At the Restaurant. Surprisingly good. The waitress said that in the summer they change the yeast a bit to produce a more banana like aroma and flavor. I think this might be more of a hefe-weizen than a wheat ale. Quite cloudy a little belgian-y. Well done. Serving: Tap

Sampler at Lucky Monk. Cloudy yellow with a slight rosy cast to it. Head has thinned out after sitting a few minutes. The fruity nose gives it a bit of a Belgian, more than a weizen character. Also an surprise hint of smoke in the nose. The taste has more of a hefeweizen character, though. A note of passionfruit, probably from the yeast. Also finding that trace of smoke on the palate as well, but that seems to make it rather nicely rounded off.
