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.

0.5l pour to a weizen glass.
ABV 4.3%, IBU 12
My wife and I visited the Prost taproom on Sunday (6/23) and we both agreed this was our favorite of the 5 samples we tried, so we split a glass ($5).
A: Hazy golden with a coppery tone at the core, capped by an impossibly white crown of 1.5-finger dense foam. Good carbonation crawling up the glass, good head retention, pretty lacing - everything you want in a hefeweizen.
S: Loaded with all the banana/clove ester goodness that the best of the Bavarian Hefeweizens exhibit. Sweetness, wheat bread, some bubble gum/candy - all are present and aptly strong.
T: Spot-on flavor, big clove and banana elicited from this yeast. Vague citrus amidst loads of wheat bread/grass/hay. Respectful and authentic to to the best of the Germans.
M: Somewhat creamy, well-carbonated (the gas-inducing/burping sort) and lip-smackingly malty. Sweet finish with just enough bittering to give some balance. Lighter-medium body, but still has a chewier finish.
O: A lovely, low-octane, highly-flavored weissbier - perfect for sipping on a gradually warming early afternoon. Delicious and crave-worthy. Thankful that they know better than to 'ruin' this with a lemon wedge and such... really great on its own. Prost!

On-tap at the brewery and served in a proper Weiss glass.
I'm going to keep this simple. This is one of the best US Weiss beers I've had the pleasure of drinking. The appearance is spot on, with good haze and a thick eggshell cap that sticks with the beer the whole way down the glass. Heavy banana and clove aromas greet the nose, followed by bready raw grains. The aromas flow nicely into the flavor, where they're joined by a dense body and lots of soft carbonation. Overall, this was a great beer. I will definitely have it again the next time I stop in.

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.

Poured from the jug into my Tawandang weissbier glass from Bangkok. A lovely cloudy amber brew. Beautiful white foam in the tall glass. Spicy aromas.
Tart with the classic German esters. Hugely aromatic in the nose. This just seems very elegant and well made, everything in balance. Sensually malty, but a thinner body, perhaps, than some in this style. The cloves are complemented with something like tangerine. Rich yet thoroughly refreshing.
Really a tremendous Hefeweizen and great to see it available in growlers. From the half-gallon bought at Mayfair Liquors in Denver.
