COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hallertau hops and Bavarian-style top-fermenting yeast deliver a thick, creamy head with overtones of banana and clove esters. This authentic German weizen style beer, with a slight hazy appearance, concludes with a crisp finish.

Embossed, twistoff 12 oz. Misty. Belgian-esque aroma at first, but I guess it’s just wheat. Musty a bit. Garden variety wheat, body was a little limp. OK but light bittering. Refreshing at St. George Island on Memorial Day weekend. ABC Betton, en route to the beach.

Shot (154) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2014
From a bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a massive head. Aromas of clove, banana and cut grass. Flavors are clove and black pepper, a hint of stone fruits, grassy notes, banana. Finishes with lemon. Creamy mouthfeel. Actually not bad for this caliber of beer. Light on the hops and overall flavor.

Wodstirrer (4) - Euclid, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2014 does not count
Slight bubble gum taste. No real head but was plain white. Reminds me of Baltika No. 4. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was afraid to try this but saw it got some good reviews. Big fan of German hefes like hacker pschoor. American Weiss beers do not come close.....great pour nice fluffy head the look was the best thing about this. Cloudy appearance. Quick smell and taste of clove and banana that fades FAST. Watery bland finish. Some lemon in there close to Sam summer and coastal wheat but those are much better. Easy drinking went down easy but forgettable. Blah

I enjoyed this one a lot. One of the few American breweries to capture a real German style weizen. Not too sweet or sugary. Grainy with just a touch of lemon and orange peel. Cloudy yellow pour.

Draft: Lemon, bubblegum, clove nose with a base of banana bread. Cloudy amber, thick head, good lace. Banana and lemon on the front end, wheat bread on the back. Medium body, normal carbonation. Well, I’ll be damned. This was good and fairly authentic.
