I usually save the wheat beers for Spring and Summer, but I was given this from a co-worker to try. Cool label, and upon close inspection, you can see the word Troegs in the tree branches.
Poured a cloudy straw color. Being an unfiltered wheat, I like to leave a little beer in the bottle, swirl gently, and pour the leftover yeasty offerings that are stuck to the bottom of the bottle.
The smell is somewhat yeasty, with some banana, citrus, and spice. Taste of clove, banana, citrus, nice carbonation. Light and refreshing with a dry finish. Good session beer, and a good representation for the style.

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.
