Long toasty days, cool breezy nights and a splash of magic provide the inspiration for the Tröegs brothers’ dreamiest creation — Dreamweaver Wheat. Combining wheat with Munich and Pilsner malts, German Northern Brewer hops, open-top fermentation and a yeast strain that imparts hints of pepper, clove and banana, Dreamweaver Wheat is an unfiltered blast of spicy, mouthwatering joy.

Sampled at Old Dominion Brew Fest ’06. Classic cloudy yellow with a white head. Fruity, estery banana/clove nose. Flavor also has notes of banana, clove plus bubblegum, lemon/citrus and wheat. Moderately sweet. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Not my favorite style but I found this to be quite good.

5000 (6625) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle: Wit like straw color, hazy, thin sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Wheaty nose, slightly bready, but nothing out of the ordinary.   Pale wheat flavor, clean, but not very robust.   Remains somewhat bready.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but are nearing the thinner side (for a unfiltered wheat beer that is).   Refreshing, and certainly not very filling.   No real banana or clove that I detect, which to me comes across as more of the American variety.   Pleasant to drink... would love to try fresh.   Thanks to kramer17801 for the bottle!

Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2006
Lightly hazed blonde with a thin white head. Pleasant bananas and cloves in aroma, with light solvent notes, but rather on the pleasant side. In mouth, a nice weizen, refresing malt, bananas and clovs, smooth, light bodied, and to style. Very classy. At the Mondiale, June 2006.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2006
Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a decent white head. Strong aroma of banana, vanilla and grass. Surprisingly not tasty given the strong aroma. Yeasty and fruity (banana, peach). Oily texture with very little carbonation. Below average Hefweizen. As boring as a Postcard from Ottawa. Sampled at Mondial 2006.

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2006
A pretty decent hefeweizen from an american brewer, of all places. Nice and hazy body, medium fluffy white head (although I think I should classify it as a small, almost non-existant white head), where did all the bubbles go? Nice flavor, quite a bit darker than the usual hefeweizen, but still very good. Nice full round taste.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 Re-rate, 5/08: Quite nice. Have had this many times since the original, and this is a pretty solid bottled American-produced hefe. The appearance could be stronger as could the mouthfeel fuller, but the flavor and originality are solid. Original rating: Pours a hazy, slightly cloudy, but still not heavily bodied yellow color with a head far smaller than a traditional hefeweizen. Aroma was of bananas. Flavor was bananas, some cloves, shocking, was expecting an American wheat before the pour. A touch of citrus zing in the aftertaste, possibly from some hops. Very light mouthfeel was a turnoff, needs more body for a hefe.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 A very good beer. This beer reminds me of Victory Golden Monkey, which I love. It seems like a Golden Monkey Light to me.

muzzlehatch (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Sample from the bottle (12 ounce) at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. It pours a hazy (but not close to opaque) light yellow-gold with a smallish but lasting head....very fresh, light citrus and banana notes, more lemon than anything, grasses and a touch of sourdough in the nose....the body to my taste is closer to an American wheat, the fruity esters are subdued and it’s more light, sour/tart and bready, though there is plenty of juiciness at the front and it never dries out totally....pleasant, unremarkable rendition.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2006
hazy yellow with a medium head and a good amount of carbonation. Banana in nose with some citrus and spicyness, taste is slighty citrus bitter with banana and clove, also spicy and slight tart lemon in the finish.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
Straw hazy colour with a medium head. Aroma of citrus, wheat and clove. Wheaty flavour with notes of lemon, banana and a hint of spice. Good all around hefe.
