This is a medium golden, unfiltered, traditional German-style wheat ale. Its fruity taste is derived from the German wheat beer yeast used in its fermentation. Properly pronounced "Vice Beer" & commonly served with a lemon.

On tap at the brewpub - Hazy yellow pour with a foamy white head. Nose is classic bubblegum and clove with some mineral notes. Taste is a bit more watery than Id like, with the same bubblegum and clove mixed with sweet wheat and too much mineral water. Still, its refreshing and crisp, without too much sweetness. Pretty good stuff.

On tap at brewery, sampler flight. Hazy, opaque straw color with a filmy head. Light banana and nut notes on nose (literally: I accidentally inhaled the beer when I was sniffing). Light, not overpowering, banana and clove taste.

Pours a cloudy, light golden colour. With a big fluffy white head plenty of sweet floral aroma and citrus fruit. Coriander, orange blossom and lemon in the aroma. Very wheaty, very pleasent all the way through. I really enjoyed this one.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. A little too much time in the growler perhaps. Yellow color with some banana and clove left in the aroma. Typical wheat, banana, and clove character.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a cloudy golden with a small, but frothy white head. Bready German yeasty aroma has some light malted wheat and lemony citrus. Body starts slightly thinner with some tart citrus character and a touch of doughy yeast. An average hefeweizen, but needs more body.

The aroma has wheat and bubblegum. Flavor is lightly sweet, light citrus, and a little sour. Cloudy but no visible sediment. It could be a little thicker on the palate.

Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub/restaurant in Wisconsin Dells. Pours a hazy golden lemonade yellow brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a spotty lacing and white ring. Aroma has over-the-top banana esters, some yeast/wheat malt and a touch of coriander. Taste is medium bodied, hardly any carbonation with flavors of banana bread, some herbal/flowery hops and a touch of cloves. Finish is smooth, creamy, soft carbonation with an excellent balanced aftertaste of light banana bread a yeast.

I was suprised by this beer. Judging from the other rating this is an inconsistant batch. I tried this on tap at the brewpub in the Wisconsin Dells. My expectations were low, but I felt the brewers created a quality beer true to its stlyle. I am a big fan of Ayingers Brau Weisse, and honestly it would be difficult to tell the difference between this wheat beer, and that of Ayinger.

Cloudy yellowwith light sediment, a spicy hop aroma. Poured a 2 finger head that hung around for a while and left some decent lacing. Initial taste of banana and hops with a little bit of lemon. Clean aftertaste. I dont know if I got into an "off" batch of it, but the growler that I bought on the first day tasted pretty typical, but on the second day it had a very strong hop aroma and taste. I averaged the 2 tastings.
