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.

Bottle, thanks Christina! Spicy yeast aroma with notes of wheat malt, clove and pepper with some banana sweetness. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head with some retention and lacing. Starts with wheat malt flavors with some banana sweetness. Finishes smooth with the banana becoming more prominent as well as spicy yeast flavors of clove and pepper. Refreshing and quite a nice hefe!

Sample @ PGH Beerfest. Pours a cloudy light brownish amber with a white head. Aroma of banana and cloves. Flavor is of light banana with a hint of clove spice. Decent tasting Hefeweizen. Refreshing and enjoyable but not the best one out there.

Poured from the tap at the Blue & Grey Pub in Gettysburg, PA into a pint glass. This beer is a very nice hefeweizen. The aroma is full of fruit, pepper and cloves. The flavor is wheat, cloves and fruit and is very nice. The beer is a slightly murky golden color with a smooth texture. a very good beer, highly recommended.

Can you say cloves? This otherwise good beer is spoiled IMO with the overpowering flavor of cloves. Not for me.

2015-08-26. Hazy dark pastel yellow, nice white head fades. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly estery, light cloves, banana, wheat and yeast. Flavour is similar, nice banana esters with a kiss of cloves, muted yeast and white. Smooth average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Simple classic take on a Hefe. Lovely. Bottle from Troegs, Hershey, PA.

Hefeweizen is one of my all-time favorite styles of beer, though it seems to be something of a rarity among American brewers. I’m not sure why, especially considering “session beer” is all the rage these days. Not too many mainstream American production breweries can make a hefe on par with the Germans, though I’d say Tröegs Dream Weaver Wheat is one of the better examples I’ve had. It’s completely to-spec on all categories as well as being delectable, refreshing, priced right and fun to drink.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass. It was bottled on 5/15/15 and cost $2.60 ($0.22 per ounce).

Appearance: An aggressive pour fills up my tall wheat glass to the rim with foam. It settles quickly to leave a lovely four inches of froth. It leaves plenty of lacing on the glass after each swig and never completely dissipates.

Smell: Traditional yeast esters of banana and clove as well as some bubblegum. Quite sweet-smelling.

Taste: I’ve drank a lot of hefeweizen over the years and I think my palate is honed enough by now to discern between just plain okay brews and ones that are really great. This falls into the latter category by virtue of the fact that not only is not mild (as many American versions tend to be), it’s actually quite robust and complex. I really dig the light sweetness of bananas right off the rip. I get a bit of orange flavor as well, but it’s in no way acidic or tart like the juice. A bit of spicy bitterness through the middle which lingers throughout the back end. A bit clovey, a bit peppery so as to offer some balance to the basic sweetness of the palette but not so much as to overshadow it.

Drinkability: Another thing that separates a great hefe from a good hefe is its ability to be fully flavored without a heavy body. Tröegs Dream Weaver Wheat is only 4.8% ABV, which is a little light for the style, but has just as much body as heavier version. The mouthfeel is quite comfortable with a fullness that envelopes the tongue, but is still fluffy and soft. Every swig is equally refreshing. This beer absolutely should be available in cans because it lends itself to portability and sessioning perfectly.

RATING: 9/10
