I was kicked back on my porch on a sticky summer evening when I tried one of these for the first time, and that's the perfect way to sample this very nice wheat ale.
Appearance was as pretty as expected: pale and golden, a touch cloudy, with a fine, creamy head that held up well. Smell? Nice mix of fruit and spice. The taste follows the nose closely -- very well balanced.
Mouthfeel gets its own paragraph. The best weizens I've had feel rich, creamy and smooth, and Dream Weaver's silky consistency nails that characteristic perfectly.
Add all that stuff up and you get an exceptionally drinkable beer. Very refreshing on hot summer days. I anticipate going through a lot of these this summer.

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.
