Way to over carbonated can even get a solid tast for the beer I let it sit in a glass for 5 minutes n was still foaming reminded me of a bad home brew all around
I wish I could give it negative ratings

Chill hazed, gold bottom, amber top with a fuzzy off-white head that has a sort of static cling to the glass.

Wheat is all over the nose, some of it being toasted, with a little almond, raisin, and dried Fall leaves. I'm maybe catching hints of banana bread and lemon.

Obviously the wheat is prominent in flavor too, taking on a sort of freshly baked pizza crust, with some lemon and green grape. Hints of banana, light yeast, bubblegum and fresh orange peel creep in after a while.

Soft, medium body, semi-dry. In spite of its medium body, even if you haven't eaten, you might feel full after drinking just a pint of this--this is one hearty stew.

22 ounce bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, banana, pear, apple, bubblegum, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy, bready, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Had this at their brewery in Ohio on vacation. I was able to meet the brewer/owner Fred.
Very nice guy. In 2013 they have opened a very nice tasting room.

I tried the wheat. I was very very good. I tried it with an orange at first and it matched up superb. I tried it later with a lemon and it seemed to lose some of its zing.

Very nice color in the glass...very good head and taste too.
