Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bananas, clove, wheat, vanilla, citrus, and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with light bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice pale wheat/hefe. If made agsin, I eould get it.

12.7 oz bottle from the brewery labeled as Smuttlabs Schmutzig
Hazy golden orange color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Bready malt with light citrus and hints of banana and clove. Nice flavorful easy drinking brew.

I had a sixteen ounce draft of this the other day and found it to be the perfect hot afternoon beer, even for a person who's not crazy about Hefeweizen's. Nice aroma, great flavor, expectable large head, an overall good beer that I would recommend if you can find it.

Had this on-tap awhile ago at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a cloudy dark golden, with a thick grainy head that leaves some nice lacing. Darker than most hefeweizens. Smells extremely dry and somewhat citrusy. Lacks the banana and the clove that are the hallmark of the style almost completely, and substitutes lemon and orange aromas and some grainy dryness instead. More in the line of an American wheat than a hefe. The taste is a bit prickly and quite unusual for the style- but very tasty. Very dry and hoppy with pine and citrus upfront, followed by restrained banana, and some clove throughout. The whole package is very nice. Very interesting brew, and one I enjoyed quite a bit.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Keg is one year old, almost to the day. Moderate white head relaxes above a golden hazy body. Slight soapy lacing. Aroma is a fascinating blend of fresh citrus, hops and clove. Taste is of banana, mild grapefruit, orange and clove. Really taste like a hopped up hefeweizen, apparently a great combination. This is a delicious and rare treat.

Had on tap on 11/7/09 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI

A: This beer pours a murky light gold with a one finger of sudsy whute head. Head retains decently and leave nice thick sheets of lacing.

S: Nose is of citrus and floral hops with a lighter presence of wheat.

T: Taste is of citrus hops up front, that blends in to a nice wheat flavor, some pale malts, a hint of spice, and finishes with a healthy dose of floral hops.

M: Light bodied, medium carbonation, crisp clean feel and finish to the beer.

D: This is a well blended and highly enjoyable beer. It's certainly sessionable and a nice offering for the style.

On-tap 11/7/09 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma has a lot of hops for the style along with light malt, citrus and wheat.

T: The taste is very nicely balanced with a strong hops presence for the style but it works well for this beer. There are background flavors of wheat and citrus. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style while enhancing the hops content, this is a good beer to drink for a whole evening.
