This beer poured a hazy yellow color with a thick head. The aroma is sour and floral. The taste is sweet, sour and cereal – wheat is definitely noticeable. The flavors aren’t strong, but they are nicely balanced. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and seems to fit the brew well. Overall, this is a good wheat offering that I’d say is easy to drink.

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color. Has a creamy white head that settle to a thin lace head. Minimal lacing. Pretty good looks.

Brew smells of clove, spice and banana. Good smell.

Brew is creamy and smooth; good malts. Banana, cloves and spices. Very silky mouthfeel. A bit of orange as well. Brew is very well balanced.

This is a very good, case worthy hefe. Very good brew.

smell of apple and spices

taste is clean, but chalky and somewhat metallic. bananna in the back

mouthfeel is sort of thin and the flavor never comes together

disapointed in this troegs offering.

no. 7 american beer at the Taste of Paste event @ the stag's head.

call it my nightcap, this was just gluttonery at some point. i had already travelled the states' via beer for the night and still decided to get myself one of these.

Not a bad choice by any means. pale opaque straw toned, not too shiny but midway between a witbier and a weizen. nice glowey head, doesn't last too long.

smell is grainy, and it tends to incline mor towards the belgian standards than the german: more citrusy at the nose and less yeasty bananaish.

Taste is also very soft, medium bodied and refreshing, some lime on top of the general wheaty feel, very subtle hoppy finish, by no means overpowering making this a nice little sessionable "nightcap", again.

glad to start trying troëgs, finally.

A constant, even, small off-white head on a tawny, medium yellow body--unfiltered? perhaps...lemony crisp with hints of malt in the nostril...swift, dry soft palate with a backsliding mouthfeel, briefly malty in the finish...overall, crisp and pleasant, especially after being tested on a hot summer’s eve deck in New Jersey....

Poured a 12 ounce bottle into a glass mug. This brew did not disappoint as I continue to discover strong wheat ales. Yieled a nice, amber, foggy body with almost no head and fast retention but that did not stop it from revealing itself later on. The smell was magnificent; nice, fruity smell with hints of banana esters that was very pleasant. The taste was great as well. Again, the banana esters were present and, like the good wehat ales i've had in the past, it left me not only satisfied but refreshed and calmed. A very nice mouthfeel to it; not too thick and pretty smooth going down. A very pleasant, very drinkable, and very refreshing beer. May be a good way to assist in cleansing your palette of some hardcore hoppy beers in preparation for tasting another one (however, water is ALWAYS recommended to help cleanse the palette). Very fun beer and highly recommended.

Poursva hazy straw. It's a cloudy, unfiltered elixir. The head is soft and white, but quickly dissipates.

Aroma is spot on for a heffeweizen. Bananas dominate the nose
Little to no clove. A slight lemon.

Pallet follows the nose; there's a distinct banana base, with some light lemony overtones. Wheat is present. But subdued. Is this banana juice?

Lighter than some examples of the style. Pleasantly soft, white light, fluffy carbonation.

Overall, this is my favorite style, so its hard d not to love this. Not as well balance d as she me others, but a cool slant that falls on the extreme banana end of the spectrum

Pours a cloudy gold with a nice white head. Nose is very pronounced with a big blast of yeasty wheatiness and banana-like sweetness., all of which come through on the palate. Texturally speaking, the carbonation makes the flavors instantly hit every wall of my palate, while maintaining an austerity that most beers of its styles do not. Overall, intriguingly substantial.

A- Thin white head on a cloudy yellow body.
S- Wheat, citrusy, yeast, light caramel malt, bananas, light esters.
T- Bananas, light citrus and grass hops, light bitterness, wheats, light caramel malts, pretty big cloves, and some light spices.
M- Light to medium body with medium carbonation.
D- This it is pretty good. It is easy to drink but I don't know if it is anything to go crazy over. There are some brews out there a lot better for this style.

Very hazey straw color, with no head but ample carbonation.
Husky, wheaty in the nose. Sweet, hints of clove and banannas.
Taste is nice. Once again dominated by wheat malts and yeast. Very "yeasty" on the palate, but in a good way.
Funny, I always think this style taste very Belgianesque.

This poured to a pale and fairly cloudy yellow with a small head that lasted well. It's leaving some nice lace too.

Esters and yeast come through in the smell. The taste starts with wheat malt and finishes with a bit of clove and banana. It's medium in the mouth and very easy to drink.

I got the Troges mixed case at the Beer Yard in Wayne, Pa. I poured it into a flared pint glass.
Appearance: It poured a nice cloudy gold color. The head was subpar in that my straight pour produced about a half of a finger of head with little lacing, and a fast retention.
Smell: The smell was very solid. I got hints of apple, and hints of banana.
Taste: The taste was a little bland, but very very well blended.
Mouthfeel: Suprisingly this produced a smooth sense that produced a pleasurbale experience.
Drinkability: This has a high drinkability.
Don't drink and review.
