Poured into my weizen glass, this beer was a gold color. with a medium-sized sticky white head. The head lingered nicely.
Aroma of fruit, floral hops, and spice.
The taste followed form. Banana, bread, a little spice, with that little kick of hops.
This was a nice beer, and it did a great job quenching my thirst. Usually not too much of a fan of this style, but would try this again.

Whipple's Wheat from Henniker. As a fan of lighter wheat beers (especially those that have a fruit flavoring), I was expecting some good things out of this one. On to the review:
A- Cloudy orange/dark straw.
S- Grassy with citrus notes, primarily lemon and grapefruit.
T- About the same as the smell: grassy with citrus popping but not as much as the smell sugests, more grapefruit than anything. Finish is slightly bitter for a wheat/hefeweizen with citrusy hops and floral notes.
M- Smooth, crisp, I love this kind of beer after a warm day like today. Refreshing.
O- Again, I am partial to lighter wheat beers and this one was very good. I would put a slice of lemon in this or even some fresh raspberries (or even both!) to give it more of a citrus pop.

Half gallon growler from the brewery.
Tight tiny bubbled lacing sticks to the glass. Hazed out pale straw hue. Big citrusy aroma with faint catty and herbal notes. Very smooth with a refreshingly quick crispness and moderate body. Biscuity all around, neutral but nutty yeast. Surprisingly very drinkable with a near perfect balance.
Well done for the hoppy wheat style.

The color was yellow/orange and a bit cloudy. A one inch, soft and frothy head sat atop the beer for a bit of time. A hoppy, floral and citrus aroma arose to the nose. The wheat and malt flavors were subtle compared to the hoppy aroma. Taste was very similar to the smell. An easy drinking, light/medium bodied beer that is perfect for any occasion or time of year. Not really bitter either. A solid offering from a local brewery.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a hazy medium straw color with a good sized fluffy white head that persists forever. Some really nice citrus and pine aromas emanating from within my glass is a nice treat when I was thinking yeast and spice was coming forth. There is some yeast and spice in the aroma and it meshes really well with the hops. The flavor is light bread and spice with a bit of yeastiness and lots of pine and resinous hop flavors to provide a bit of balance. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spicy almost resinous mouthfeel. Interesting wheat beer to be sure. I really like the jolt of hops that put a distinctly American spin on this. I would have liked a bit more of the crackery spicy wheat berry to come out here though.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 9, 2013.
It pours a cloudy, unfiltered pale yellow with a tremendous white head and active carbonation.
On the nose there is a vibrant floral and citrusy hop note which immediately thrusts itself out in front of the more subtle wheat, biscuit, and pale malt notes.
The body is light to medium.
Unlike the nose, the wheat malts are the first flavor on the palate but then the citrus hops tend to turn more earthy and bold. The bitterness is higher than most in this category and it ends dry and linger momentarily at the end. It is dry-hopped so that should be factored in.
