I bought a half barrel of this beer for its price. Having never drank any Summit products before it was a gamble. The gamble paid off, what a nice surprise. This is a very drinkable beer with a nice nose, very characteristic to the hefe weizen style. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick on the tongue, but it is easy to drink more than one of these after working outside. Tastes best in a wheat beer glass with the lemon, this seems to bring out the fullest clove flavors. A very thick creamy head tops this beer off.

Serving type: on-tap

Summit Hefe Weizen: on tap. Poured a very yellow color, very hazy. The color was a little startling. Nice thick head, dense and long lasting. Very lemony flavor, which was a little surprising (and no, they did not put a lemon in it). The banana taste typical to the style were absent. After taste was long lasting, and fruity sweet. The brew was smooth though, with a creamy mouth feel. Unusual brew, not that authentic to the style, and not in my top ten of the style.

3.6/5  rDev -0.8%

Appears a cloudy unfiltered golden orange complemented by a foamy white head. Aroma has hints of spices, very mild banana notes, overall very nice just faint. In the first sip a sweetness mixed with all of the yeast tones, and this beer presents a good amount of hop flavor that I found uncharacteristic of a hefeweizen. This was almost like an Americanized version, a wheat ale if you will. Light to medium bodied with a pretty thin moutfeel overall. Pretty drinkable just nothing spectacular, I would like to try this one in the bottle to see if it differs.
