Those boys at Troegs know what they’re doing! Almost clear light yellow with a fluffy head. Mild aroma didn’t match up with the big spicy/fruity flavor. Light mouthfeel, crisp and refreshing, super summertime sipper. Excellent session beer. stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Cloudy yellow. A mild wheat, slightly flat. Not strong enough for my taste. Not bad but it is not a great wheat. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Pale cloudy golden hue covered by a 1cm white head. Rather simplistic malt profile leaves a lot of room for the obvious banana yeastiness, paired by a strong soapy character. Tartish, oily and really dishes water reminiscent in taste. Wheat comes out gently, but it feels greasy through and through. Average carbonation, foamy texture, light bodied. Could be cleaner and more confident in its maltiness. Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Sample at Old Dominion BF. Hazy straw color. Sweet, malt aroma and flavor. Malty wheat flavor. Good hefe. zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Bottle. Pours opaque golden yellow, fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus and malt. Flavor is lemony and wheaty, some bubble gum sweetness.

Sampled at Old Dominion Brew Fest ’06. Classic cloudy yellow with a white head. Fruity, estery banana/clove nose. Flavor also has notes of banana, clove plus bubblegum, lemon/citrus and wheat. Moderately sweet. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Not my favorite style but I found this to be quite good. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle: Wit like straw color, hazy, thin sudsy white head, sparce lacing. Wheaty nose, slightly bready, but nothing out of the ordinary. Pale wheat flavor, clean, but not very robust. Remains somewhat bready. Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but are nearing the thinner side (for a unfiltered wheat beer that is). Refreshing, and certainly not very filling. No real banana or clove that I detect, which to me comes across as more of the American variety. Pleasant to drink... would love to try fresh. Thanks to kramer17801 for the bottle!

Lightly hazed blonde with a thin white head. Pleasant bananas and cloves in aroma, with light solvent notes, but rather on the pleasant side. In mouth, a nice weizen, refresing malt, bananas and clovs, smooth, light bodied, and to style. Very classy. At the Mondiale, June 2006. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2006
Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a decent white head. Strong aroma of banana, vanilla and grass. Surprisingly not tasty given the strong aroma. Yeasty and fruity (banana, peach). Oily texture with very little carbonation. Below average Hefweizen. As boring as a Postcard from Ottawa. Sampled at Mondial 2006. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2006
A pretty decent hefeweizen from an american brewer, of all places. Nice and hazy body, medium fluffy white head (although I think I should classify it as a small, almost non-existant white head), where did all the bubbles go? Nice flavor, quite a bit darker than the usual hefeweizen, but still very good. Nice full round taste.
