Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a pale, hazed, yellow coloring that is almost completely opaque, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of lemon, clove, and a bready background. Flavors are typical of a Hef, with hints of sour in the backbone, mild spicing of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and banana and citrus sweetness. Grainy and sweet aftertaste, with a clean finish. Smooth, light bodied, making it extremely easy to drink.

First had: on tap at their brewery

Poured a cloudy, pale, straw-yellow with some fizzy carbonation and a fluffy white cap of a head that dissipated substantially. Yeasty, bready aroma, a bit diacetyl-y, some undertones of banana esters. The taste follows the aroma basically, bready, banana and light citrus, hints of spice, and a little harsh bite. Light bodied and fairly easy to drink, but not really something I'd get more than once.

On tap at Vermont Pub & Brewery on 6/12/11.

A - Cloudy pale golden body with a billowy white cap of fluff that retained well and deposited drops of thick, spotty lace around the glass.

S - Aroma is akin to sourdough bread or whole grain popcorn with a hint of salt, although there is spicy clove notes and more traditional Hefe qualities present, such as ripe banana.

T - Citrusy, bready and grainy initial flavor with some saltiness and a hint of spicy clove. This really reminds me of popcorn up front. However, notes of ripe banana come to the forefront in the backend, giving the finish a more traditional Hefe flavor paired with just the slightest amount of tartness.

M - Light bodied and softly carbonated with very subtle tartness on the palate. Finish is salty with minimal bitterness.

D - Beetlejuice is light and refreshing with lots of character. Don't go in expecting a classic Hefe. Instead, think light pale wheat beer combined with Hefe and Berliner Weiss. I was pleasantly surprised by this brew.

On tap poured into a sampling glass.

Pours a hazy very light pale yellow with a small creamy white head. Nose is grainy and yeasty.

Taste is all banana! I get some clove but it's subtle. There's a very rich and creamy mouthfeel and a nice dry finish, quite good.

I had this beer both on tap and I bought a growler to go to share with a friend.

The beer poured a very hazy yellow with a small off whit head. The aroma was of citrus and also a bit floral.

The beer was light-bodied and was easy to drink on a hot summer day. It was a decent Hefeweizen, but nothing spectacular.

Served in a standard pint glass at the brewery

Pours a hazycloudy yellow color with a thick fluffy head.

Yeast is strong in the nose, some spice and citrus, no banana which is what I was looking for,

Flavor spot on to the nose, simple, decent, but not overwhelming, nice in the heat, but not amazing. I wanted more

Cloudy straw yellow color off the tap (thanks Jason!); head of pure white foam displayed weak retention and quickly collapsed to a thing ring. Did lace pretty well though. Pleasant aromas of yeast, aromatic hops with a sour character. Flavors were yeasty with hints of sweetness, slightly citric, slightly sour like a kumquat. Lightly carbonated. Mouthfeel was light for the style and it felt in general like this brew needed to be more assertive. Still, this offering is summery and refreshing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Had this on tap at the brewery/pub. Served in a standard pint.

A: Poured a very light straw yellow. Slight haze to it. Has a thin, wispy head that had decent retention. Little to no lacing.

S: Smell is of your normal Hefe yeast, a touch of citrus rind, and earthiness.

T: Taste is of yeast, wheat, light citrus flavor (lemon and orange, fruit and rind). A little better than so-so.

M: Very thin for the style. Has a serious wateriness to it that was a big turn off. I know that these are to be very refreshing but this is very close to water in the feel.

D: This beer is ok. It will cool you off on a hot day but it will not challenge or impress you. Mediocre at best.

Poured a medium hazy straw hue with a finger and a half of frothy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured the typical hefe yeast aromas coupled with a touch of sourness.

The taste consisted of some muted yeast esters, a chewy wheat spice and some citric tartness.

The mouthfeel was toward the thinner side for the style.

Overall a decent hefe.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours like a saturated yeast culture: cloudy and straw-golden. The head thins to a persistent film with good lace. The aroma is light with notes of citrus, banana, neutral grain and yeast.

Sweet upfront, but not overly so. There's nice banana and citrus fruitiness. Neutral graininess in the center with a yeasty finish. Light-bodied and moderately carbonated.

A perfect summer day beer.

"Bavarian-style sour mashed Weizenbier" Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a cloudy, light yellowish color with a small white head, dissipates quickly with moderate lacing. These was a very mild nose of wheat and yeast, almost non-existent. Up front flavors or lemon, wheat, and green apple with a smooth sour cherry and hoppy finish. Light, crisp and refreshing with mild carbonation.

The smell, or lack there of, initially turned me off, but the more I drank this beer, the more it grew on me, the sour mash added great depth.
