Summer Solstice 2011

Thanks to Erikkoppin for this one

App- A big hazy yellowy, orange and gold color. A bit like a mixed drink to me in color with only a very small 1/2" that falls to a small impish tiny bubble line.

Smell- I like the additional notes on this one. Its still a hefe with a banana, clove, yeast note. However, this adds a bit more fruit to the nose. Pressed grape skins, a little bit of tangerine and some funk to me.

Taste- All of the scents I described in the aroma section fall to the taste, but don't neccesarily work well together. A little unblended with the additional fruit notes. Tastes a little bit like peach nectar. It's not bad just unique to me.

Mouth- A bit of a creamy medium body. A little bit more of that residual peach necter, some funk and a little acid on the flavors. A good medium carbonation leaning towards a low carbonation though. Interesting feel for sure.

Drink- Overall, I thought the flavors were very well crafted just a little unbalanced. I know this is from probably June if my math of the Solstice is correct. Adds a bit of depth from aging for 6 months but still flavorful.

Huge thanks to leschkie for this bottle. 2011 vintage.

A: Pours an ultra cloudy caramel color. It's like a darker grapefruit juice. There is very little head to this beer, just a thin white ring along the top of the liquid.

S: It smells tart. I'm picking up yeast, lemons, cherries, and lactic acid.

T: The initial hit is nice and sweet, like a typical Hefe. But right after I get walloped with a beautiful mix of sweet and tart. Cherry, lemon, and banana. I also get some wonderful clove essence in this beer. Wow, complicated.

M: Medium bodied beer. It starts off wet and mellow, but finishes dry. There is a lingering acidic sting in the back end, but I like it.

O: This is a fantastic beer. I didn't know what to expect from this beer after the pour, and I'm blown away. It's basically like a Hefe mixed with a wild ale. Consider me impressed.

Picked up at Kuhnhenn for $4.25 per bottle, it better be good! Poured into tulip...

A- Pours a very very hazy, opaque, yellowish brown color. Almost like a translucent arnold palmer. Has a cm of head that doesn't lace, but hangs around shortly.

S- Very wheaty and full of banana esters. Has a lemony citrus pop as well as an herbal and floral finish.

T/M- Interesting and different. Almost a tart, citrus forward hefeweizen. The wheat is grainy and hay like. There is a strong lemon, oranges, and grapefruit flavor. Refreshing flavor, but body is a little heavy. Carbonation is low as well for what I think would work best.

O- I've never had a hefeweizen with the tartness of this. Different but I liked it! If the body would have been a bit lighter, then I think it would have made it all around more refreshing and easier to drink. Would drink again, but not at same cost...

Another fun treat opened up at Jay's house.

Appearance -- Pours a hazy, unfiltered straw yellow with a slim and whispy white head.

Smell -- HUGE banana bread aroma, cream of wheat, mild spice, and pineapple. Brunch of the gods.

Taste -- Pale wheat, pineapple sweetness, banana fermentation character is much milder than is noticeable in the aroma, but still present. Overall, the flavor is mellow, fruity, and slightly sweet. Nice.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-bodied with mild carbonation. Could use more bubbles, definitely.

Overall -- A pleasant and unique hefe, but very one-dimensional. Still, a great use of fruit in beer.

What a show. Thick orange unfiltered mass with a small lasting white head. Vanilla and wheat aroma. A little bitterness overwhelmed by thick wheat. A treat, different spices here nutmeg and a tad of cinammon. Like I am at the brewpub this record hot day.Chris's gift. Good drinkability.
