a: Looks exactly like an unfiltered wheat beer should. A lovely, cloudy, pale atraw yellow.
s: Not a lot to mention here. Faint cloves maybe, not much spice overall though.
t: A bit of a letdown from Troegs. The flavors I'd expect to find (clove pepper etc.) are here but very muted.
m: Very thin with less carbonation than I'd like.
d: I could drink wheat beers all day, i'd just pick another one
notes: Troegs makes many outstanding brews, so I won't hold this average offering against them.
Serving type: growler

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
Light orange, to dark lemon yellow body, slightly lighter and brighter towards the bottom of the glass. Head makes about three fleeting fingers of soapy white head to fall and quickly disappear into a good thick collar, but thin puck.
Standard hefe nose on the bouquet, but hints with much more strange peanut butter like yeast esters. Faint clove, little malt wheat chewy character, and no sense of sweetness. THere is a thick sweet peanut quality coming off this however, and a strange out there hint of nut and dry quality on the nose.
Palate hints toward hefe quality, but with spicier notes, and subdued classic hefe quality. Wet bodied with a lighter feel, and not sense of malt chewy character and depth. Almost peppery, near hot finish on the clove like ester front. Density really missing, and the bubblegum sweetness and where is the lemon.
It's an interesting take on the style, and comes off a bit strangely amped, but still a bit lifeless unfortunately. No regrets trying it though, and no harm either.
