Enjoyed in a weizen glass

A: pours a very clear light yellow/ hay color with a few carbonation bubbles and a finger of light fluffy pure white head that lingers for a decent amount of time and leaves a bit of creamy lacing on the glass
S: definitely a hefeweizen, banana peel and nice clean wheat notes are immediately discernible
T: pretty clean, banana peel and a slight spice in the middle, little bit of a what note lingers on the palate for a while afterwards, above average
M: medium carbonation, leaves the mouth wet and yet with a certain spice note at the back of the throat
O: a pretty nice brew, drinks smooth and clean, not overly complex but generally nice

Served out of a 12 oz bottle and into a pilsner glass.
Appearance-yellow, lots of carbonation, unfiltered with yeast floating, very cloudy.
Smell-smells of banana's and yeast.
Taste- notes of banana bread, very tart, can taste the yeast coming through.
Mouthfell-tart
Overall-Not a bad wheat beer but far from exceptional either. Troegs is a great brewery but this is not one of their best.

Poured into a Duvel glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As poured the beer is a hazy golden yellow color with a ½” fluffy white head that soon begins to recede to a thin layer and ring around the glass. Sipping leaves some leggy and speckled lacing that mostly clings to the side of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is banana and spice that are really quite nice and there is also some wheat here as well.

Taste: The flavors, as expected from the nose, are a delicate mix of banana, clove and a dash of white pepper, all in balance with each other and supported by the wheat.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and has light prickly carbonation throughout. The finish begins with the fruit slides through the spice and ends on a slight bittered note.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: I’ve enjoyed this beer many times and its always a pleasure to have it yet again. I certainly appreciate being able to find a decent wheat beer brewed locally. My over all impression is that this is a good beer that will not unseat Weihenstepahner and some of the other top imported hefeweizen, but that is as good or better than many of the hefeweizen I’ve tried during travels in Germany. I particularly like the fact that while the banana is present it doesn't overwhelm.

A - Started to pour it vigorously, but then it kinda got out of hand. Has a very large bubbly, carbonated head, but no lacing on the glass after it disappears. Never really had many wheat beers, so this is a new experience for me.

S - Smells very bready, like a buttery sesame-y kind of bread. Not very stong, but definitely there. Almost smells sugary in a sense. Not a bad smell by any means overall.

T - The first thing I notice is an almost stinging citrus blast. Like a beered up lemonade. Very carbonated, sort of frothy. Has an aftertaste of orange, lemon, yeast, and a little bit of hoppyness. Aftertaste is like a sweet honey-like sugaryness. Honey nut bread comes to mind, with a hint of nectar and citrus. Fairly tasty, but I've never been one to reach for a wheat beer, when given the choice of several more favorable styles.

M - Very light, like one of those lemon-lime sodas. Bubbly and very carbonated, it really doesn't feel like a beer at all! Does leave some foam behind in the mouth after it's gone, but don't most beers of this style? I dunno man...

O - Not bad, not bad. Not my favorite style, but okay for what it is. Seems like it would make a good session beer, but the heavy wheat influence makes it very filling, which makes for a bad session beer.

Thanks to TroyG2352 for the gift

App- A little bit darker than most hefe's. This was a bit cloudy still with only a small bit of a 1" head to it. A little on the lacking side of lace and cling.

Smell- It was a smaller version of a hefe. I did get most of the scents but very light. I did notice the bubblegum note was gone but instead it was more malty and a bit more grass to it.

Taste- A pretty solid Hefe but nothing earth shattering. The profile was there but didnt deliver on the essential elements. Lacking a bit of depth and layer. A little bit more malt than I was used to.

Mouth- Medium bodied and a light-medium carbonation. A little bit creamy on the finish with some solid wheat flavors.

Drink- Overall a pretty good offering. The Troegs boys have made some pretty good beers I have had. This is another pretty good staple in the lineup.

light cloudy gold in appearance. Smell is a nice blend of hops, malt and spices. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Taste is more on a Belgian wheat, but a ok blend of what you want in this type of brew. Overall a rather flat beer that leave the mouth wonder what it is drinking. It is a little in flavor, taste and aftertaste.

A-Hazy honey with a moderate head that retains fairly well. Light lacing.

S-Sweet with plentiful amounts of Hefe yeast. Citrus peel and other fruits. Clearly some spice too.

T-I personally think this beer tastes like liquid Bazooka bubblegum. It truly tastes just like pink gum. Must be the yeast. Aside from the gum is a lingering spice finish. A bit doughy in terms of the malt.

M-Not the lightest feel I have come across in the specific style. I wouldn't call this watery. Lighter carbonation. Bubbles are there but they aren't potent. A bit slick.

O/D-Too much bubblegum flavor. Not my favorite beer and I could definitely see this becoming undesirable after the second or third. Not a huge fan.
