A - Cloudy, light golden in color, frothy white 3 finger head, lacing throughout
S - Banana, yeast, light fruit
T - Banana as in nose, mild sour yeast, fruity, finishes with a very light floral hoppiness
M - Medium light body, smooth as hell with just the right amount of carbonation
D - Very drinkable and very enjoyable to drink. A wonderful American Wheat. Drinks very similar to Weihenstephaner weiss which is my favorite wheat!

Notes: One of the better wheats out there...another great brew from Troegs! (509 characters)

Beer pours clear but becomes beautifully murky with the addition of the yeast residue (or maybe that's my saliva). Rich head dissipates too quickly. More orange than amber in color. Strong banana aroma, reminiscent of a high school organic chem experiment--esters gone bad. In other words, this is an artificial banana smell. But pleasant nonethless. Other notes are spices, principally clove. Banana and clove dominate on the palate as well. Completely inoffensive, lives up to expectations for a transitional seasonal beer. If Dream Weaver were a boy band, it would be One Direction. So much for the brewer's nod to Gary Wright. (640 characters)

BOD 3/2/15. Pours a slightly hazy golden. Outstanding head volume, normal lacing and retention.

World class nose of clove, light banana and hints of pepper over a base of wheat and pale malt.

Heavy light body, which is normal for the style, with a very smooth texture. Superbly carbonated with a rich prickly effervescence from the middle on.

The flavor profile is borderline world class due to a slight lack of complexity. While intense and well balanced, it is clove focused and other hefeweizen aspects are rather subdued, such as banana. It begins with clove phenolics and they remain through the finish. The middle brings very slight banana, a nice grainy wheat aspect and only a hint of hops - no real bitterness to speak of. The finish is a slowwwww fade of the clove phenolic. (793 characters)

A very enjoyable American Wheat more on the Hefe side of the spectrum than the Oberon side. Pours a perpetually hazed golden straw into an 8 oz mug, the only glass wear at my house that isn’t packed up for moving. Nice white head, superb retention. Aroma is more complex than just bananas and wheat, although both are present. Dried apricot, bread dough, tremendous spicing including, oddly enough, salt peter???, and some esters. Tastes like a wheat cereal with coriander, pepper, clove, and dried bananas mixed in. Very spicy. Nice carbonation. I really enjoy it. Nearly full body. Nice carbonation. A winner. (612 characters)

Hazy cloudy pale. Classic hefeweizen scent, with noticeable citrue. Wow, this is a really tasty wheat beer. Definitely better than Sierra Nevada's, which is the last wheat beer I can remember drinking. The citrus tones are nicely balanced with the malt, making it feel rather hearty, especially for what is usually considered a light(er) beer. Tasty indeed. Too bad this only comes 3-to-a-12-pack. Absolutely worthy of its own six-pack. (436 characters)

Thankyou Drafting Room for brinking this very yummy Troegs tap offering! It poured out a creamy looking peachy apricot color that there was no way to see through at all, this almost looked frozen. Nice creamy, milkshakey, egg-white head that reduced down to a nice covering. Carbination is not noticable. Scents of banana, fresh grash, gingerale, white grapes.

Incredibly smooth, almost thick, but yet soooo drinkable. Tastes of bananas, very light white wine spritzer, and slight citrus. Very clean and fresh! After the lemon is added- which I looove in my wheats, the flavors become a bit crisper. Sooo very nice! Once again, kudos to the Troegner brothers! (663 characters)

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Yeast was swirled in, cloudy brew now and the lacing is pretty epic. Banana bread ... no, taffy with some breadiness with dusty clove and nutty yeast in the nose. Very very smooth with a crisp refreshing bite, malty with a mellow breadiness. Herbal phenols push against the ripe fruit, clove tries to push the yeast out of the way. Flavors may run up against each other but nothing clashes. The phenols and a mild tartness do pull this beer away from the extreme drinkability this style can garner. Semi-dry finish.

Still able it quaff it back though the amount is hindered for me somewhat. (633 characters)
