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.

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.

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.

Pours up a cloudy gold with a white head that leaves some patchy lace on the glass.

The aroma has fruity notes of bubblegum, banana, clove, and vanilla backed by some spiciness from the rye.

The taste has a nice malt base of crackery wheat, bready malt and spicy rye with a hint of citric hops and plenty of Hefeweizen yeast character.

Overall, an interesting take on the style. The rye and Hefeweizen yeast play well off each other.

Coop Zeppelin sampled on tap at the Ale Werks in OKC. Served in a pint, the beer is a hazy dark straw color with a bone white head. It has a lemony nose with cloves.

Wow, leads with a blast of lemon! Citrus zest and spices follow. I get a bit of all spice and a more than touch of clove.

The mouth is slick with decent heft. I think this is a more than passable stab at the style. Well done!

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?

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.
