For a US Weiss - Excellent
Served on tap in the classic weissbier glass, with a nice frothy head that almost reminds one of an ice cream cone.

This one really reminds me of being in Germany. This is not an American Wheat. This is the real deal. Excellent creamy mouthfeel with the yeasty clove-bannana notes that one associates with this style.

This is one of my favorite summer session beers. Hopefully Prost will start selling in a keg so I can enjoy this after some weekend yard work. Prost has done an excellent job of bringing the German Tradition to Denver.

The Prost Brewery is beginning to grow on me for various reasons. Their Dunkel and Pils are sublime, but the one that always seems to irritate me is the WeiBier. I have had the Weibier on numerous occasions over different months and it never tastes the same. I was told this was due to brew temps changing. I'm not sure I agree with that statement. Sometimes the clove taste is barely there while other times the banana aroma is not present at all. The last time through it was almost acrid in taste, with a steel after taste and harsh finish. Not what one would expect from a now established brewery.
I have a strong passion towards Weissen's in general and really want to see Prost get this one right. After all it is a GABF winner.
Consistency in brewing will make this beer a home run, and I hope Prost can get and keep it there.

Draft served in the awesome, appropriate glass at the brewery. Prost’s Weisbier is a gorgeous, glowing orange-golden in color with a thick, rich sheet white head that retains well and leaves heavy lace. This was a fantastic hefeweizen, and easily in my top tier of both domestic and international versions. A flavorful wheat body brings a balanced sweetness and bready character with a generous hand of banana and clove - rich, round, and delicious. Lots of yeast and a little secondary spice complexity. Grassy hops and flits of dried citrus. Creamy, full carbonation and a moderate body. All kinds of things going right with this beer.

A beer brewed for summer.

Prost's Weißbier was my favorite of the four brews I tasted on my visit to the brewery because of its freshness, wholesomeness and subdued sweetness – and my non-beer-drinking girlfriend loved it, which was as nice surprise.

It pours a cidery, hazy gold with a big, fluffy head with good stay and smells like candy bananas and fresh orange juice. The smell is sweeter than the taste, although I got a fair amount of citrus sweetness balanced by a balanced, funky, malty mouthfeel.

Good on its own, but I would've loved it with some food or sunshine.

Ok, this is one of the best beers I have ever had in my life. It is a perfect balance of wheat, banana, cloves, and Bavarian style brewed cloudiness. It is clean, smooth (not crisp), and I cant explain it but I love this beer. On my quest to find the best Hefe in the world this summer, this one may be it. 2 Growlers down and 1 in the fridge.
