COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Decorah’s main street, this beer pays homage to our original accounts, most of who reside on Water Street. Hints of bananas and cloves make this wheat beer a favorite. Easy drinking with tons of flavor, the velvet texture finish is reminiscent of the Upper Iowa River, which flows just down the street from the original brewery.

Bottle @ Home. Thanks, Andy. Sort of a hazed amber/orange color with some white foam. Smells okay at first some with citrus and stone fruits, but there’s a really funky quality to it that I can’t quite describe. Some burnt toast and popcorn, too. The flavor is really sweet and malty. Minimal hop flavor, but definitely some grassy and metallic bitterness. Quite earthy, too. Not a fan.

22 oz. bottle. dated 6/8/15. Head is a bit heavier than the usual frothy wheat beer head. A light amber beer body, shows clearly filtered. Smell, is just there, a bit of wheat malt spice, mostly carbon dioxide from the bubbles. Taste kind of lacks the promise wheat ale esters. Just seems to offer some malts, and a bit of tart. Rather clean palate. I get a bit more character once I swirl in the yeast and dregs from the bottom of the bottle. But unlike the other TG brews I’ve tried, this is just fair.

Minderbinder (3232) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle 660ml. Pours hazy deep golden/copper with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of armit sweat, wheat, caramel. Taste is of wheat, wort, bitterness, belgian yeast, peppery, roasted malt/wheat. Palate: Medium body. A tad sweet. Soft carbonation. Questionnable balance. Overall: Decent. Quite malty. Bitter.

mathieuc (3177) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle shared by Minderbinder, thanks bro! Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of pepper, hops and lightly fruity. Taste is of cereals, caramel, fruits and moderately bitter. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Overall an OK brew but a far cry from their hoppy offerings (most of them, anyway).

dinkle50 (1312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Cloudy orange and slightly red pour with a huge head. Aroma of wheat immediately hits. Lots of bread notes. Slight banana. Taste is full of wheat, kind of like eating bread. Light mouth. Slight sweetness and a hint of banana in the finish. No lace.

Cloudy Orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. Very yeasty. Wheaty. Not bad for the style. Can't say I enjoy it tho.

bigda83 (792) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy orange color. Aroma to me was more of a Belgian beer than a wheat. Got the straw, banana, wheat, clove in there. Flavor followed the nose. Just not a fan of it though. Light body and thin on the texture. Bubbly carbonation, dry to finish.

bytemesis (6449) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to ReeceG. Pours cloudy orange amber, small off-white head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is caramel, wheat and pine. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, lots of caramel, light wheat, pine. Not getting banana or cloves out of this one. Medium body, low carbonation. Not a winner.
