COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
By popular demand, our summertime seasonal is no longer filtered and has been permanently converted to a full-blown Bavarian-style Hefeweizen! A unique strain of yeast produces banana-like ester flavors up front and phenolic clove, spicy notes in the background. Brewed with half barley malt and half white wheat malt and hopped with Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.

12 ounce bottle poured into a weizen glass. The beer is a hazy copper with a white head of thick foam. The aroma is bready and has a bit of citrus and grass character. Sweet and estery. I get a little bit of bubblegum from it. Medium body and high carbonation.

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Hazy orange with white head. Slightly citrus spice in nose. Taste is banana and spice. Pretty thick for the style. Not bad.

Pours hazy (?) Dark yellow, huge frothy head. Yeasty (estery?) Banana aroma. Taste is banana, grass, soft biscuit. Whisper of floral hops. Soft smooth mouthfeel. Note this is now called Summer Weiss but seems to be the same beer.

On tap @ Blue Mountain / Afton VA --- Hazy medium amber color, white head cover, cobwebs of lace. Taste is bright wheat with malt, carbonation, and coriander, that moves to a comfortable, slightly bitter finish. Similar to Hoegaarden (which is a compliment).

AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 8, 2015
12 oz. bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Best By date: 8- 2015. Very murky orange color, damn near brown color. Aroma has more orange/ citrus then banana. Light sweet malt tones.

The flavor is much like the aroma with the citrus being a lot larger and subdues the banana, bubblegum like notes. Slightly sour notes in the finish. Body is medium with soft carbonation. American side of of the style rather than German. The slightly sour hint throws it just a bit off for me.

jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Hazy copper and light bronzed coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, yeast and bunches of wheat - pungent! Medium-bodied; Assertive curacao and lemon flavours with a good note of wheat, coriander seed and some bready yeast, but the wheat is really refreshing here. Aftertaste is a touch one-dimensional with the wheat and yeast the only things really showcased, but good for them is that they are good and show off very nicely. Overall, a nice german style wheat that doesn’t look so great, but tastes and finishes very nicely, a good addition to the Virginia brewery lineup! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 17-May-2015 for US$2,24 (bottle is dated to enjoy by 08-2015) sampled at home in Washington on 13-June-2015.

Citrus aroma. Lightly fruity, a bit of spice and some hoppy bitterness. Crisp and punchy. A little bit of earthiness as well.

2.6
Travlr (24667) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at Glen’s. Cloudy, almost murky. Aroma of banana, citrus. Taste is bready citrus/grapefruit juice.
