Ap. Cloudy gold with minimum head.
Sm. A tiny bit of sweetness, but mostly sharp lemony zest and spice.
Ta. Mildly spicy upfront and tart. Some sourness in there I think.
Mf. Mild carbonation and not quite thin.
Dr. Very drinkable, but don't care for it enough to have another.

A-Hazy, golden orange with a medium white head that reduced to a thin cap that settles and left some nice lace.

S-Nice and present but not overpowering yeast aroma, with notes of light banana, clove and a touch of bubblegum. Light citrus notes and some sweet biscuit malt comes through the yeast.

T-Up front notes of clove spiciness, lightly tart citrus and finishing touches of banana and bubblegum. Supporting sweet biscuit malt calms down the yeast zip and makes this quite pleasant.

M-Medium-light body and quite soft. Comes off feeling a touch thin but this is a "light" brew so this isn't entirely unexpected.

D-A simple, yet enjoyable and drinkable session wheat beer. Plenty of flavour to keep things interesting. Without question a nice beer to have on hand to offer your swill drinking friends something better.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy, light golden in color, frothy white 3 finger head, lacing throughout
S - Banana, yeast, light fruit
T - Banana as in nose, mild sour yeast, fruity, finishes with a very light floral hoppiness
M - Medium light body, smooth as hell with just the right amount of carbonation
D - Very drinkable and very enjoyable to drink. A wonderful American Wheat. Drinks very similar to Weihenstephaner weiss which is my favorite wheat!

Notes: One of the better wheats out there...another great brew from Troegs!

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.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

On tap at the Philly airport. Served in a big ass Weizen glass. Characterized as an American Pale Wheat Ale, the Dream Weaver looks, smells and tastes like a Hefeweizen. Troegs uses pilsner & Vienna malts, Saaz hops, and German Wheat Yeast (nothing American about that!).

A: Creamy frothy white head with excellent retention. Almost missed my plane waiting for the head to subside. The color is a beautiful golden yellow to orange gradient, lighter at the slimmer parts of the glass and darker towards the top. Rich, radiant and glowing.

S & T: Very forthcoming. Banana and clove dominate. Grainy malts, lightly hopped and a big wheaty yeast character. Pepper and bubblegum notes. Heavily sweet and a little spicy. The sweetness would be overwhelming if it weren't for the tart, dry finish and cutting carbonation.

M: The mouthfeel was surprisingly light and thin. A definite downfall and frankly a bit disappointing. Luckily, the perfectly prickly carbonation saved what could have been a bigger disaster.

D: Drinkability gets a point for great flavor (especially for 4.8% ABV) but loses more because of the weak mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good tasty treat.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Surly pint glass.

A: Standard pour yields a 1.5 finger coarse, white, quickly dissipating head. Beer is a semi- clear orangy yellow. No lacing to speak of. I'll usually grade down because of the cloudiness but given the style... bumping it up a bit.

S: Smells super sweet and orangy. Not hoppy orange... orange soda orange. Also a certain pleasant spiciness. A twinge of tartness as this one warms.

T: Opens spicy and citrusy. Super sweet wheaty characteristic is present upfront. Spicy and clovey middle that lasts till the finish. Malt backbone is strong with no hop presence to speak of. Finish is super watery but very very clean, leaving near no aftertaste.

S: Light bodied, coarse, carbonated, and Spiceee (with my Macho Man accent)!!! Rather watery but goes down unbelievably easily. I'm so glad this one is 4.8% abv cuz I just finished it in about 4.8 seconds... Finish is messy, watery but super clean to the point that it leaves nothing on the palate.

D: Talk about a session beer. This one is about as sessionable as it gets. Good, clean taste that isn't too complex but oh so enjoyable. Mouthfeel just makes you gulp instead of sip. This might be my go to summer beer from now on.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus and spices. Taste is excellent, malts, citrus, and spices blended perfectly. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and is highly drinkable. Overall this is a very good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - pours a cloudy golden color with two fingers of white head
S - smells of golden wheat and yeast, with hints of citrus throughout
T - taste is exactly as it smells
M - has a decent amount of body for wheat beer but it thins out at the finish, good carbonation, finish is nice and wet
D - goes down so smooth you could chug it but why would you want to?

An impressive wheat beer that brings weihenstephaner to mind, although it falls short of the original of course. Had to down it fast cuz we were leaving the bar and it was still very enjoyable.

Poured into a shaker pint. Very cloudy orange/yellow with a big frothy head that slowly turns to a thin film that has some nice lacing. Bready and bannana aromas. Classic wheat taste with cloves and bananna flavors. I drank this outside in the dead of winter and though it was enjoyable I am guessing that it would taste even better in July.

On-tap at the brewery into a snifter.

A: Hazy orange body with a finger of fine white foam that settles into a cap and leaves some lace. Pretty good.

S: Aggressive yet smooth hefe smell of yeast, with banana, cloves, and a touch of characteristic bubblegum. Pleasant and to-style.

T: Follows the nose quite closely, with the emphasis on the spiciness and a very clean finish. Very good.

M: Fairly light body with tons of soft, mouth-filling carbonation at first, followed by a pricklier wave on the tail end.

D: Low ABV + strong flavor = highly sessionable.

Notes: Solid take on a classic style, this one didn't disappoint. It's no Dancing Man, though.

12oz bottle. Didn't really see much to rave about in this one, but then again, American Pale Wheat Ale isn't exactly the most exciting style, is it?

Cloudy yellow color with an average sized white head.

Sweet aroma with some wheat and some light fruits. Just a little banana/clove. Fairly faint compared to other examples of this style.

Flavor is mildly sweet pale malts and not much of your typical phenolic taste that we all love (mmm...phenols). A little yeast and some grainy bitterness, with just a touch of hops.

Light bodied and somewhat crisp with ever so slight hop resins. A tad watery.

Overall, reasonable but not up to Troegs' usual standard. Drinkability is pretty good.

Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a small white head. The aroma is orange, banana and clove. Kind of strange to get all of those flavors in one wheat beer, but it is very inviting. The flavor is more of the same with coriander being the most dominant but the other flavors showing up as well. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A odd-ball combination wheat beer with the best aspects of witbiers and hefeweizens. Definitely recommended.

A - Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head that leaves some lacing behind

S - Has a citrus and wheaty nose

T - Follows the nose for the most part citrus and wheat plus the yeast added some spice

M - This beer has a lighter body with higher carbonation to it

D - For a wheat ale this is one of the better ones out there its easy to drink with a good taste it kinda leans towards a hefe if wheat beers are your thing its worth a try

I picked up a few Troeg beers from my local shop.

A - Nice golden color. Sort of like a Pilsner.
S - Citrus and slight hops pine smell.
T - Hit me harshly like a Pilsner at first but after initial taste the next rounded out a slight bitter pale ale with wheat flavor.
M - Kind of harsh for 4.8 percent but it was pretty smooth.
D - I could finish a few but I would rather enjoy another Hopback, Magic hat #9, or my initial choice a victory Golden Monkey.

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

Appearance - pours a nice golden color with little head and not much in terms of lacing.

Smell - very nice citrus sent, seems pretty mellow and not overpowering.

Taste - Very nice mix of spicy and sweet.

Mouthfeel - pretty light with good carbonation

Drinkability - a tad sweet to me but overall I find it pretty refreshing and one of my favorites in my young entry into craft beers.

It pours a light gold with very little head - mainly bubbles clumped around the edge.

The aroma is very citrusy with a hint of malts. The citrus scents tend more towards the lemon than the orange aroma.

The taste is well balanced mix of citrus flavors and malt, that finishes well.

The beer would work well as a session beer or with a light meal, but it is definitely very delicious and refreshing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass. Beer is yellow and hazy, carbonation moderate to low, almost no head. Head is made up of a thin layer of white bubbles and other larger bubbles that stick to the glass. No lacing.

Aroma is slightly hoppy. Citrusy and the kind of bitter you associate with citrus peel. There is also a hint of wheat malt in there, smells OK.

Beer is medium body, bitterness low, clean wet feel to the beer. No much in the way of backmouth bitterness at all. There is a late wheat flavor that I enjoy but usually want it up front rather than in the back of the mouth. Second taste, Drinkability really high, mouthfeel again leaves something lacking the front palate. Overall, its an OK wheat beer.

Poured cloudy gold into a weizen glass, with a finger of white head that laced fairly well. The smell was of subtle banana, clove, and bubble gum, but also revealed a strong lemon/citrus presence. The taste was a little more dominated by the citrus portion. The mouthfeel was pleasantly carbonated, with a medium body. A decent session beer for the hot summer months.

Heard some good things about this beer, and I've loved most of the Troegs beers, so here comes this one.

A: Light bleached white airy bubbly head that fades quickly. An extremely hazy pale light golden yellow Cable Car like color.

N: Lots of wheat. I mean sacks of wheat invading your nose. Some banana and citrus add a nice touch. Hints of yeasty aromas and fruity aromas. It has a nice Bavarian wheat nose.

T: Taste is very similar to the nose, starting with tons of wheat, Bavarian wheat style. Adds some Banana and slight citrus, specifically lemon, almost a hint of clove and spice. A slight yeasty flavor with hints of fruit. Very crisp clean flavor, and very refreshing.

M: Pretty light but not too light, good carbonation.

F: Very crisp and refreshing. Semi dry finish with hints of bitterness. The banana really explodes at the finish with just a touch of spice and a touch of yeast. Almost all of the flavors are gone after a few seconds. A slight lemon taste seems to linger a bit though. Although it seems to leave a very slight slimy feel in the mouth, which is a little strange, but not bad. It actually gets pretty dry the longer the finish goes. Would be a great summer or spring time beer, especially coming in after mowing the lawn. Unfortunately I decided to review it basically in winter.

Poured from 12oz bottle into half-liter Paulaner weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours cloudy gold with a large long-standing white head that leaves very heavy lacing behind.

Smell: Smells of wheat and yeast with heavy banana and a bit of spiciness.

Taste: Yeasty sweetness with a spicy finish and a slight banana aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light body with a relatively strong carbonation tingle up front. Finishes crisp and refreshing.

Drinkability: A nice refreshing wheat beer. Not the best out there, but it does what it has to do and is still good overall. The spiciness is definitely unique.
