This is a German-style Hefe-Weizen. These ales are cloudy, estery, sweetish and exceptionally quaffable in the summer. Perhaps you notice a banana aroma; the yeast does that. The grain bill consists of 60% German wheat malt with rest being a combination of pilsner and Munich. It starts at 1.055 and is approximately 18 IBU's. Look for the Wheat Cloud to be bottled in early August as our late summer seasonal.

Draft sample. Poured hazy yellow color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate banana, clove and citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a solid sweet finish of moderate duration. Good refreshing brew.

Thanks to alcfron for this 22oz bad boy. 2002 bottle. This is a good representation of the style, even though Wheat beers are not among my favorites. Pours a murky, hazy grapefruit juice color with no head or lacing to speak of. Aroma of pineapple and other citrus fruits. Crisp, clean flavor is sweet with a tart finish. Again, I am not really a fan of Hefe's but this is a good example of the right way to make one.

On tap at Buckeye on our way to RBSG. Pours a haze filled gold with a medium sized white head. Big banana and light wheat. Soft wheat, a touch of sweetness. Finishes with a bit of gentle banana and some nice yeast.

On-tap at the brewpub. Sour wheat aroma, in fact very sour taste, mouthfeel below average. Straw pale colour with lace. I have had more enjoyable for the style, more drinkable.

Tap at the brewpub. Hazy neon yellow pour with a minimal head. Banana and mild yeast, lively carbonation. Pretty tasty.

22 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor have some banana, bubblegum, pale wheat malts, light spice, thin, seems a little off like the bottle could have been old, either way very average and not worth revisiting.

Tap at Beer Engine. Hazy yellow pour with a light sticky-white head. The nose is quite tart and lemony. A bit of very light banana and fruit. Some soft apricot and peach on the back with a lot of bubble gum and fruit. Not much cloviness - but the bright fruitiness makes the beer fairly unique. Nice stuff.

22oz bottle (blue label), no idea how old it is... But it’s probably not fresh. Mildly hazy golden color. Virtually no head. Impressively, still a solid hefe aroma. Banana, vanilla, wheat aromas. Slightly tart sweet taste. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, dry finish. Pretty respectable hefeweizen. Still certainly good to drink, however old it may be.

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. Hazy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of banana, clove and sweet wheat malt. Flavor is overwhelmingly banana with some clove and wheat malt. Good representation of the style, but given that, tough for me to finish a sample.
