look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

I got this single 12oz brown bottle as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. The label says "if it's not from Wisconsin, it's not in this beer." All the wheat, malts, hops, water, and even the yeast strain is home grown in Wisconsin - hence the name, Wisconsinite.

The beer poured a hazy golden/yellow color with more than half the glass filled with fluffy white foam. While the head was huge and the retention was decent, it only left a few small spots for lacing.

It has the banana/clove aroma of most hefe's, but it's not really that strong in this one. What is strong is the spices. There's more in here than just clove. That new Wisconsin yeast strain can also be detected in the smell.

Tastes like a banana/lemon wheat beer with a lot of spices in it. The clove, coriander, and allspice flavors linger on into the aftertaste. The Wisconsin yeast and mild grassy hops round out the flavors.

Light bodied with moderate to medium carbonation. Aftertaste is full of spices.

Nice to see a brewery trying something new, but I can't say that I'm a fan of this one.

3.36/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Bottled on 04/11/14, poured into weizen glass:

Pours hazed straw yellow with a fluffy head that soon descends to a thin cap. Spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of banana, lemon, hint of clove, sour wheat tang.

The taste is of wheat crackers, sweet grain, mild banana/clove. A sour character balances the sweetness. There is a slightly metallic, floral finish.

Crisp and refreshing, but not as creamy as other examples of the style. The body leans more towards that of a typical American Pale Wheat Ale, but it works well enough.

Overall, it's between a light hefe and a stronger Berliner weiss. Decent.
