Probably the best of the troegs I'v had, this beer manages to be low alcohol and extremely flavorful. The beer has a spicy smell and a taste to match with a tour of the spice cabinet as far as flavor. The beer finishes with the flavor of sweet malts.. It goes down too easily.

Cloudy white wit-like appearance with a nice full creamy white head and good carbonation. Distinct clove, bubblegum, and banana aroma and flavors. Definitely fits the Bavarian hefeweizen profile. Very nice balanced fruit/spice yeastiness. Medium bodied, creamy and smooth; very refreshing solid brew.

Very nice summer brew that I plan on getting more of !

Had a great experience on my trip to troegs today, so happy this place is within an hour of my house

poured this into a pint glass, had a 1" head that disipated quickly. Cloudy hef style with alight wheat and citrus smell, dipped my nose right into this one. Has a slight orange overtone to the wheat flavor. Very smooth brew that I could sit and drink for hours, this is def on my tip 5 favorite list, you want to introduce someone to craft beers give them this...big thanks to troegs for producing a great beer

A: Pretty and hazy light straw hue with a frothy white half-inch head that settled quickly.

S: Such an interesting experience! Strong sweet floral scent - almost like honeysuckle or jasmine. Entertained myself for awhile trying to figure out the aroma.

T: The floral aroma hung on through the taste, eventually giving way to clear banana with a slightly sour undertone. The light floral showed up again at the finish. Complex and interesting all the way through.

M: A light, refreshing carbonated mouthfeel. I want this one around for summer.

O: I haven't been much impressed by wheat beers to this point - but now I have one that I love.

Thank you Troegs for not forgetting about your western PA brethran, thanks to a tip from beergeek279 and cupbeerman I found this one flowing on draft at Fathead's a bar a seem to love more and more with each visit. Appearance: Slightly cloudy or a milky peach hue on a golden body would be a better way to describe it, forms with a decent sized head leaving behind random scattered chunks of lace. Aroma: Spicy mix with touch of coriander, packed with loads of creamy banana esters and clove tones from the yeast used here, very nice. Taste: Takes on a banana smoothie like presence with the spices and clove complementing the sweet malted wheats in this brew. It's Oberon with balls basically possibly one of the best wheat ales I've ever tasted very very quaffable. Mouthfeel: Light medium body, with even carbonation creamy texture smooth as all hell. Drinkability: Excellent summer session but I wouldn't pass on it anytime of the year, this one should definitely make it's way to the Troeg's regular lineup which as of now lacks any wheat based beers.

Loved this beer!! Pours with a light amber dark yellow color, Smell light with fruit fragrance, Pours with a nice heads that dosen't diminish too quickly, just enough carbonation. Taste was terrific not to heavy not to light. Very flavorful beer, just sweet enough.

Bought as a multi pack but didn't get to the others, finshed the four that came with it.

Wonderful wheat beer, probablt the best I have had.

I am not a fan of the style, bottle try some anyway since hefe beer is better than none! CANs soon, I promise.

From the bottle: "DreamWeaver Wheat is an unfiltered splash of spicy mouthwatering joy. Pour 3/4 of the bottle into a glass, swirl the bottle to invigorate the yeast and pour remainder down the center of the glass." Cool, it comes with directions since everybody tells me I need more direction in life.

I got a finger of fluffy bone-white head from my pour and then it suddenly fell like a souffle when someone bangs the oven door shut. Color was a VERY cloudy orangish-yellow, like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Nose was as advertised - spicy, specifically clove forward with undertones of the banana/bubble gum esters that usually put me off in a big way. The clove-forward smell is achieved by fermenting hefe yeast at lager temperatures and I had not realized that homeboys John & Chris were doing this with theirs or I would have been drinking a lot more of it a lot sooner. Mouthfeel was not quite full, but close, and the clove spiciness was like the Clove Life Savers that I was (seemingly) the only person who liked them. For our more modern and hip users, think clove cigarettes. I once made an air freshener out of an orange by sticking cloves into it in the shape of a smiley face. Yay, cloves! This was joy in a bottle. Frankly, I did not really experience the banana/bubble gum nonsense that so thoroughly puts me off. Finish was pretty dry for the style, given its intense spice but I was down with it. More please, Mssrs. Musselman and Yashinsky.

Poured into a pint glass. This was the last of the Troegs I was trying from the sampler case purchased recently.

A: A cloudy unfiltered yellowish gold body. A bright white foam head. Foam head dissipated quickly.

S: A spicy smell of clove and coriander with a hint of citrus.

T: Initial taste gets a citrus flavor, but the spice flavor of clover and cinnaman are apparent. Very prevalent is the wheat taste as well (obviously right?)

M: Medium body beer. Leaves a spicy flavor in the mouth and on the tongue.

D: I enjoyed this wheat beer and could enjoy multiple in one sitting.
