A credible, but not outstanding wheat. No lemon in the sample, although apparently served with one by the pint. Clean and refreshing taste, nice straw color, some citrus hints, appropriate head. Better than the strawberry wheat (too sweet, overly strawberry flavored) and leas interesting than their "Youngdunkel", both also sampled on tap.

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

A: Pours a golden color. A small white head forms and leaves some lace.
S: Orange, lemon, and clove. Sweet pale malts and bread.
T: Fruity orange and lemon again. A light peppery spice. Not very complex, but enjoyable.
M/D: A medium body but a little over carbonated. Easy and smooth to drink. I can session this with no problem.

Enjoyable is the word. Another good beer from this brewpub. Just not my favorite of the style.

A: Had on tap at MBC. Pours a straw yellow color, one finger width white foamy head. Beer is cloudy but not as cloudy as home Hefeweizen's I've had.
S: Smell is sweet and yeasty. Slight banana smell
T: You can taste the wheat, good banana/fruity flavors as well. Finishes with an alcohol taste.
M: Light to moderate carbonation
D: Easy drinking very refreshing beer. Served with lemon at the brewery but very flavorfull without.

Into a pint glass, poured a straw yellow, slighly goldish, with a small head and cascading lacing not sticking to glass. Aroma is of banana and clove, pretty standard hefe. Taste is more or less the same, more emphasis on banana maybe. Mouth is smooth and then tingly. Overall, a real nice beer for a hot day that I'd surely drink again.

06/20/05- Had on tap via samplers at the Montana Brewing Co. in Billings, MT.

Presentation- Two samplers in 4oz glasses.

Appearance- Light yellow coloring, a bit cloudy. Small head and light lacing.

Smell- Very fruity. Maybe some tropical fruit in the nose. Papaya or mango. Nice.

Taste- Mirror image of the scent. Lots of fruit flavors, maybe just a tad of banana. Maybe a tad bit of hops in the far background as well.

Mouthfeel- Medium to higher carbonation. Semi-creamy.

Drinkability- Good summer seasonal that I would get again when in Billings.
