Draft poured into 22oz glass, opaque black with thick tan head. Aroma is pleasant, sour and malty. Flavor is delicious...again, somewhat sour and malty with banana notes and that classic wheat beer taste. Bubbly and smooth feel. So good!

From tap at the brewpub poured into a traditional weizen glass. Pours a cloudy light brown with a quickly disappearing head with some lace. Smells of yeast, citrus and malt. Taste is similar to the aroma but a little more wheat/yeast spice than what was found in the nose. Very fresh tasting and slightly effervescent with full body mouth feel. Too drinkable, very refreshing. I can see why this is an award winning beer.

The appearance resembled brown muddy water.

I didn't know the style when I ordered it; I picked it at random. The appearance resembled brown muddy water. The aroma was on the subtle side. It had a roasted wheat smell which showed in the flavor.

Like the aroma, the flavor had a roasted wheat/grain taste. There was a real earthy taste that floated throughout each drink. It also had an allspice flavor that lingered in the background.

Overall: loved it! It had a smooth texture that enhanced the subtly of the flavors. I would definitely have it again or take some home in a growler.

Purchased a growler yesterday afternoon and shared last night with a couple of friends. Review written from notes. My first of the style.

Poured into weizen glass. 2 inches of solid head. color is a murky light brown. hazy.

smell is strong out of the growler but weaker from the beer in my glass and gets weaker as time passes. i get banana, clove, citrus, and sugary malt with some "yeasty"/earthy smells as well.

taste is extension of the aroma but better and of course stronger.

mouth feel is smooth with slightly above medium body. despite the good body to this beer it doesn't seem to take up much stomach space. i ate alot while drinking probably about 24 oz. the taste is delicious but possibly easy to over power with food. for piece, this is a win. and for the style, I'm going to have to try more of these but i think i'm a fan.
