A German style wheat ale, mit hefe (with yeast). This cloudy, classic is light in body yet big in flavor. Lots of clove & a bit of banana make a big aromatic presence.

22oz bomber bottle poured into a Deschutes snifter. No bottle date or ABV is listed here. Bottle purchased at the brewpub on 9/4/11.

A: Pours a really nice light orange color. Finger and a half bright white head. Carbonation is awesome, bottle conditioning? Some faint lacing.

S: Spicy notes. Belgian yeasty smells. Breadiness.

T: Solid Hefe/Witbier character. You get a nice spice note on the tip of the tongue: coriander and orange peel? Definitely yeasty character too.

M: Light to medium bodied. More light though. Good summer brew.

O: B+ beer for me. Not a style that I usually reach for, but really enjoyed it. Really solid food beer. Enjoyed with sushi.

Poured on-tap at the Portsmouth Brewery and served in a weisse glass. The beer is a light, bright, pale yellow, and the unfiltered nature makes this brew almost opaque. No head to speak of on this one. There are very light aromas of lemon and bubblegum. Interesting. There is a decent cling along the glass while you drink. Flavors are sweet, with the bubblegum characteristic once again, as well as a basil and oregano spicing at the end of the palate. The aftertaste is mostly spice, with a dry, rough finish.

Poured into a weizen glass at the brew pub. Pours a cloudy straw color with a finger of creamy white head.

This one smells like bananas. Tough to notice anything else but it does have a faint toasty aroma lingering. More of a grainy flavor on this one. Kind of fruity still but it has a nice light toasty flavor and a little bit of spice.

Good feel. Light bodied and soft carbonation. Pretty ejoyable beer. A little fruity but still a nice lower abv offering.
