COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long toasty days, cool breezy nights and a splash of magic provide the inspiration for the Troegs brothers’ dreamiest Single Batch creation—Dreamweaver Wheat. Combining four wheat types with Munich and Pils malts, noble Saaz hops, and a yeast strain that imparts a spicy, peppery, clove taste with a slight hint of bananas, Dreamweaver Wheat is an unfiltered blast of spicy, mouthwatering joy.

Rated 3/29/13. Two 12 oz bottles poured into a weizen glass. A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade; a bit thinner looking than what I like out of my hefeweizens, but with nice retention. Not much lacing here. S: This is heavy in banana esters. Huge whiffs of bubblegum and sweet vanilla hit my nose, as well as some general ’wheat’ malts. I’m fairly impressed by the aroma here. T: Initially, it starts off with fruity, with loads of banana and faint orange. Afterwards come notes of vanilla, wheat, and clove...it’s quite vanilla forward, actually. A bit of hop bitterness builds up as more is consumed, suggesting decent layering/depth. M: Soft and creamy at first, before developing into a dry, astringent feel. This also seems to bring out some hop flavors on the back end, as well. Carbonation is strong if not oppressive, and the drinkability is excellent thanks to the moderately light texture. O: A great hefeweizen is worth its weight in ambergris, and this is certainly a great example of the style. This seems to have more complexity than others in the style, also - including the 1000 pound (and 1000 year old) gorilla-in-the-room from Weihenstephaner.

Tap sampler at Troegs in Hershey, PA. Pretty standard for an average wheat. Dry on the mouth feel and in the throat.

Cloudy citrine color, little lace Light body but enough zing in the mouthfeel to prevent it from tasting weak. Flavorful, spritzy, complex, long, balanced. Moderately bitter, dry, low acidity. Soapy yeast flavor, cloves, floral. One of the best wheat ales I remember drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this more than enough times, figured I better say something. I’ve had this in weizen glasses most of the time, but often had it straight form the bottle. Here goes. The appearance was a nice hazy yellow to orange color, definitely looks filtered to me. In the weizen glass, it definitely had a nice two finger soft white foamy head that dissipates a fairly moderate pace. The smell was slightly peppery yet clove-like banana-esque refreshing-ness. I would say spectacular in Summer. The taste was peppery spicy with a super nice allocated banana-ness coming back to balance it all out. The aftertaste was slightly banana/spiciness leading to a nice refreshing (could be construed as watery) aftertaste. I’d say it was a dry finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium and shows a pretty good sessionable quality running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation hits, but isn’t overly done. Overall, if there’s ever any hefeweizen I’d ever like to replicate in my homebrewing, it would be this. Though I’ve never reviewed this on Beer Advocate, this is an exceptionally well done hefeweizen well worthy of having again. I could only wish to ever get this again.

Bottle to shaker. Pours cloudy gold. Two finger head, quick head, not much lacing. Aroma of clove, banana. Tastes lightly sweet, earthy, floral bitterness, slightly sour from the yeast. Body is light, creamy, light carbonation. Finishes rather dry with fruity notes, banana and clove. My least favorite beer style but a solid beer none the less.
