A = Beautiful light amber, with the cloudiness expected of a wheat beer. A long-lasting head with ample lacing.
S = Crisp, slight spiciness, and bread.
T = Bright, citrus, and clean, and leaves nothing undesirable lingering on the palate.
M = slightly creamy, but then has a clean, crisp finish.
O = Love it. I think this local brew has ruined me for other wheat beers! I'm in trouble now!

I enjoyed a drive out to Gneiss brewery on New Hampshire's and Maine's country roads. Was greeted by the brewer Justin, who answered all my questions and gave me a tasting of all four current offerings. These folks really pay attention to detail, and the beer really shows it! It is highly drinkable alone and would be a great accompaniment to a burger, chicken, fish, nachos, whatever! It would not overpower any food selection.

This is one of my favorite beers of all-time. Had it at The Tap House in Bridgton, Maine, a small bar near the brewery in Limerick where the only beer that isn't local is the shelf of PBR pounders at the bottom of a cooler. The owner of the bar, Carrye, recommended Weiss to me one of the first times I went in and it was love at first taste.

Look: It's fun to watch this beer poured, especially by a skilled bartender. It's playful and light, with gorgeous amber and clouding.

Smell: If you love the smell of a good hefeweizen, you'll be in heaven. Smells like a crisp Fall day with just a hint of spice that teases you.

Taste: Clean with just the right amount of citrus. Good consistency from start to finish, so no surprises at the end of your sip, unlike some other local hefeweizens I've tried.

Feel: Imagine thick champagne and you're got a good idea of how Gneiss Weiss feels in your mouth. Very smooth consistency and it's quite fluid. No sticking around.

Overall: It's the best hefeweizen I've ever had the pleasure of tasting and in my top 5 beers of all-time. So happy that I'll be passing through the area today and can get a growler of Weiss for the weekend :)
