Sampled on tap at Sleepy Dog; March 2011
This beer arrives with a touch of haze in its lighter gold body that sits underneath a pale head. A big, buttery, diacetyl note in the aroma is backed by a notes of dishwater and perhaps a hint of grassy grain. After searching for some beery notes for a while I get a hint of some clove and bubblegum like aromatics.

The flavor has a creamy texture / slickness to it with flavors of sweet corn and a slight tinny / metallic note in the finish. Clove flavors linger on the tongue for a bit and there is a soap like flavor to this as well. My first sip also has lots of buttery diacetyl in the middle that lingers through to the finish. The clove does take over eventually though. Lots of diacetyl in this beer means that it boosts the slickness and body of this brew. No real wheat or grain flavors are noticeable underneath the dominant flavors.

Poured into a Pilsner glass. Pretty orange/yellow colored and unfiltered looking. Small one finger bright white head.

Smell is earthy or grass and soggy bread. Sweet malts and tartness, maybe from the hops.

Taste is tart, kinda lemony. There are the bready, hay notes of a hefe. Malt taste is Pilsner like. Not the disappointment I was expecting. Rather refreshing.

Mouth is as a Hefe should be. It is a summer refresher. A bit on the watery side, but not off for the style.

Overall I must say I am pleasantly surprised. I do not like this style at all, but did enjoy this one. There is also no way this brew will draw me away from the IPA's, DIPA's, Stouts and Double Stouts, but I do know there is a decent choice brewed right here in my home state that I can float down the river drinking. Thanks to Kevin for the sample.

Not my favorite style of beer, but I enjoyed this. Light cloudy with a nice white head with some lacing. Nice floral smell reminiscent of a Belgian beer. Nice smooth taste, and I can really taste the banana and some citrus. A little bitterness on the back end, but I am enjoying the strong hints of banana. More compley than a straight up Hefe like the Widmer.

Sleepy Dog Hefeweisen: On tap at a resort in Phoenix, served with a orange. Straw color and a thin head produced a faint aroma but was masked by the accompanying orange slice. Standard wheat beer in flavor and texture. Good local rendition of a style I greatly enjoy. Probably better without the orange slice attached.
