Upland Weizen pours an attractive, hazed copper color with a thin, fizzy head that depletes to almost nothing as the beer sits. The aroma is that of a classic hefeweizen -- big notes of banana, clove, and citrus rind. Very subdued yeast aroma, as this is not bottle conditioned. Banana, clove, spice, pepper, and yeast flavors permeate the palate. This is a flavorful brew with some depth, for sure. Finishes with a mild hop twang. Smooth, medium-bodied and lightly carbonated. Very drinkable, it makes for a great summer session brew.

This beer pours a cloudy copper, and has a thick white head. Head retention could be a little better, but it does leave a few patches of lace on the glass. Aroma and flavor are filled with phenolics... clove, banana, and lemon. Begins sweet with a slightly sour finish. Has a light to medium body, and a rough mouthfeel.

This is a very good dunkel-weizen... exactly as it should be. I'm looking forward to their upcoming bottle release, and hopeing it will be a bottle conditioned beer. The only thing this beer lacks is the extra flavor that comes from pouring in the yeast.

Beautiful, light golden pour with nice, even head. Scents and tastes are what one expects from a crisp wheat: bitter tartness, cloves, and soft fruit tones. Nicely drinkable...a good wheat beer made better by the fact that it's locally brewed.
