Christmas in a Glass!!! This smell of Cloves and Grandma's Kitchen at Holiday time permeates this entry. I love it and it was a Beer of the Month offering.. Weird for July, But who am I to Judge??
Anywho, the smells, the flavour, the colour is just bursting with Holiday Cheer!!! Sprecher, your Root Beer Rocks, but your Hefe is out of this world. Thank you for fairing out into the Craft Beer world and blessing it with a Reindeer Inspired, Grandmas Kitchen, Peace on Earth Beer Perfection.
God Bless us, Everyone!!!! Tiny, sMc

This one is destined to make me feel sad and melancholy. It was part of a local, in-person trade with tone77 which then became a part of my interminable bottle backlog. I have come to the realization that I will be unable to attend the 2014 Great Taste of the Midwest this year. Boo hoo. Only my second miss in eleven years! I raise this beer in a toast to my MKE homies: Mike Romans; John & Laura Burke and the displaced Jurkowski, who I will see in two weeks.
From the bottle: "A cloudy appearance and an immense creamy head are characteristic of this lightly hopped Bavarian-style brew."; "This coarse-filtered wheat ale is fermented with a German yeast for a refreshing clove spiciness and hints of citrus fruit."
I agitated the heck out of this one in the bottle, then let fly into my glass, but I still only got a finher of off-white head that quickly fell to wisps. Color was a hazy, not cloudy, deep-gold (SRM = > 5, < 7). Nose had a buttery, butterscotch odor. That said, I know that such is considered a flaw in most styles, but it is also one that I rarely pick up. Was it diacetyl? We shall see. Mouthfeel was thin. Taste was not quite right. I was getting the usual banana esters, but in a tangy way, not as sweet as I am used to. I was getting the banana/clove esters on the finish, but in a muted way. Not bad, but I have had better. Give my fond regards to MKE, Madison, and Wisconsin in general!

I had this craft beer while I was in Florence (Firenze), Italy at a local craft beer bar. When poured into a weizen glass it has a chazy gold color, smallish head, little carbonation, and a yeasty aroma. It has a real yeasty and picey, with hints of cloves and oranges. It goes down easy, with no edge, and quenches the palate.
Florence, Italy May-July, 2013
