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.

Bottle to wheat beer glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head that dissipates in a moderate rate. Nice nose of grassy notes. Tastes a little hoppy bitter with similar grassy, lemon notes. Not bad.

Solid summer beer. Refreshing hints of banana, clove. Very yeasty, refreshing. Would recommend highly at its price (6 pack for 6.99)

12oz bottle. Poured a light hazy amber orange color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of light wheat notes, sweet malts. Some light notes of yeast, light banana, sweet notes that remind me a bit of Yuengling.

been ignoring this since it came out thinking it was one of those heinous wheat beers that tastes like bran flakes and lemon water. not the case-aroma is solid hefe with rich banana, yeast, and spiciness. flavor hits with same hefe components up front, but thins towards the end with a slight grainy aftertaste-palate a bit cloying--although overall id say this is a great budget hefe-and brewed in the US!

Dogbrick (9439) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2015
On draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. aroma of wheat, banana and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, banana and mild hops. The finish is wheaty with a slight malt aftertaste. Just average overall.

A nice, refreshing brew to drink while grilling. Surprisingly bitter for the style. Nothing Iíd buy for myself but perfectly acceptable.

Looks, tastes and feels like a summer wheat should. A very sessionable brew for the dog days of summer.

I am a fan of Yuengling but this isnít necessarily my favorite. I find it a bit bitter.a little flat.

I was going to sample a 6-pack of this last summer, and have been a little curious. A buddy gave me a single to sample, which was plenty enough to get the idea. Wheats are hit or miss for me, and this one falls a little short. Drinkable and I guess refreshing if super cold, but there are better economy summer ales out there.
