Review from notes on the back of a receipt. Lost and rediscovered just now. On tap at Ed's Bar in Winona, MN on October 18, 2013.

Relatively clear light copper body. Solid finger of frothy off-white head with good retention and lacing.

The hefe yeast is clearly evident with aromas of banana, clove, and pepper. Bready with a clean floral hoppiness.

The flavor is also very yeasty and once again resembles a hefe. Quite a bit of spice, fruit, and bubblegum.

Medium bodied and moderately carbonated with a very crisp finish.

Overall, this is a very interesting and unique beer. I have definitely never tried a dampfbier before and I definitely enjoyed it, even if I wasn't blown away.

I had this beer at the kramarczuk's Kielbasa Festival on tap. This beer was clear gold in colour with bright notes of wheat and light crystal malts and munich hops. I could taste the sweet malts, which phased into lingering bitter hops on the palate. This beer was light, sessionable, and crisp.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably not.
