Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bort11 on 05-27-2009

Notes: A unique spin on a classic style, this spicy wheat ale starts with a blend of Maris Otter, white wheat and a hint of rye. After a late addition of Cascade hops, the beer is fermented on German wheat yeast. Notes of clove and banana can be found along with noticeable spice from the rye.

Had this in a pint can poured into a pint glass. Can smell and taste the banana and clove - very, very similar to Troeg' s Dreamweaver. Excellent wheat offering. My favorite from Coop Ale Works.

It has a beautiful, hazy, and golden color but had a small head. Nice smell from the yeast and spices. It tastes like a wonderful fusion of a citrusy wheat and recognizable hefe. It has the smoothness of a wheat with the kick of spice from the rye and the citrus and clove work well together. Medium mouthfeel overall that makes it easy to drink more than one in a sitting. If anything, I could've done with just a pinch more of hops in it. It's a really good interpretation.
My favorite beer type is a hefeweizen, so I like this beer a lot. It is slightly different than a standard hefeweizen, but definitely something I'll be getting again.

Pours to a thick white head and cloudy orange-gold color. Head dissipates to a thin ring :(. Aroma is mostly banana and bubblegum esters and a touch of clove. Flavor is typical hefeweizen with a nice fruity banana front and a spicy finish. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Overall a very good beer, but what is up with the head?

Pours a cloudy gold from the can with just over a finger of foam. Banana, cloves and a touch of grain give this a very Belgianny (??) nose. You get the banana and cloves in the taste, but malted wheat really comes through. Pretty traditional. Medium mouth, and the wheat gives it a bit of chewiness. Really solid wheat ale. Nothing spectacular, but it is what it says it is.

I found Coop Elevator in Oklahoma City at Tapwerks located in the Bricktown area. The hazed bronze color was a bit darker/dingier than what I expect from a wheat brew and the rye may have something to do with that. The lighting at this taproom is not the best for grading colors either. Head was a bit thinner than I would expect as well, but it still left some pretty good lace. Aromas of cracked wheat, banana, and clove are all there. Flavor follows the nose with a slight rye peppering and sweet herbal tea. Nice smooth texture and medium carbonation like most hefes. Overall a very good brew from Coop.

a hazy golden in color with an almost non existent head. light grain aromas. taste begins with an initial burst of sweet bread flavor. then some bubblegum and clove. finally an almost nutty, bready finish. a hint of hops in the aftertaste. a great wheat beer.

A-Served in a standard shaker pint the beer was hazy blond color with more transparency and corbonation than what you traditionally see with a german hefe. It had a thin white head that was somewhat lacking and left very little lacing on the glass. The head was the most disapointing component of this beer.

S-lemony citrus is the prodominate smell followed by some clove. I was not getting the banana as mentioned in the notes. There is nothing to get critical on but nothing to get exited about either. Pretty average on the nose I would say.

T-It started off with a mild lemon flavor with a little spicy kick on the back that I cant quite pinpoint (my guess is its the rye) and is somewhat unique from what I have had before in a wheat. The beer is very balance, easy to drink and overall very enjoyable. Still not getting the banana.

M-light to medium body. This beer is very smooth with excellant drinkability...probably the beers strongest quaility.

O-A unique take on a german hefe and a very enjoyable beer overall. While average on appearance and smell I was pleasantly supprised by taste and my overall impression grew stronger as I drank the beer. There was nothing spectaculare about this beer but its a step up from Boulivard Wheat. There are definatley better wheats out there but I would have no problem drinking it again sometime either. If you are looking for a session beer this would be a very good choice.
