Poured from a 500ml standard pressure-cap bottle into a large weizen glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger white head. Fluffy and long-lasting head. Hazy orange color. Nice looking beer.

S- Active yeasts, European dulled hops and citrus notes.

T- Lemons, wheat and bottle-conditioned yeasts.

M- Silky sort of feel. Wet and medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

O- Good beer, no complaints about it.

A. Dark straw color. Opaque because of the cloudiness. Aggressive pour yielded a big-time frothy head that retains nicely. Thick laces. A very good looking beer.

S. Barnhouse funk. Cloves, banana peels, wheat, and grain. Yeast and biscuits. Some sweetness in the form of honey.

T. This sucker is sweet. Flavors of cloves, bubble gum, banana peels, and Belgium yeast. Similar to a yeast roll with some butter and honey.

M. Full body, fairly smooth (diminishes b/c of the sweetness), high carbonation. Actually leaves a clean palate.

O. I was detracted from the high level of sweetness that I found this beer to have. Generally a good beer, but it seems not as well crafted as some of their others. Their Hefe is tip-top shelf, but this falls short. Worth a try but I will likely pass unless in a share.
