This was served in the Mug Club glass. It is totally opaque and a dark straw color. It has a clingy off-white head.

The beer has an aroma of grains, light lemon zest and grass.

The taste closely tracks the smell. Wheat, slight citrus and a bit of whole grain cracker type taste. Grassy at mid glass.

The mouth is crisp and mid-level heft. It is easy to quaff but a bit boring.

From notes:

Served in from the tap in a pint glass for some reason. Like no head on this but I don't blame the beer I blame the server and the glass this beer was poured into, not really good conduit for head. The color is a hazy lemon pie crust yellow, the nose is quite strong in the corriander and oragne peel department with a mild kick of citrusy hops. The taste is a bit different than the smell with the hops taking a bigger role. I'd say this is like a less hoppy Gumballhead but hoppier than a Weistanphaner or similar beer. Hops take care of most of the mouth feel with a snappy dryness that rather fits this particular beer. Nice and drinkable and super fresh the lemon and orange bitter characters are nicely balanced out by a wheaty sweetness to make this beer quite drinkable if a bit of a rogue beer. Solid choice for this brewpub offering.

Served as a cloudy light amber colored beer with moderate white puffy head.

Smells shows a nice wheat character, along with some yeast and corriander spice.

Taste follows the nose with a nice light spiciness.

Only modest taste retention, with a quickly fading spiciness.

An average beer for the style

this rotates seasonally, so you can get a dunkel weiss, regular, or american-style wheat. usually this is in the 4-5% abv range. the time i had it last it was an american style wheat and was a cloudy straw color. some faint aromas of banana, clove, and fresh bread dough. (i will not take into account the last time i had this and the glasses were not rinsed properly-horrible dirty detergent smell. look, i have seen how bars wash and rinse their glasses and it sickens me. that nasty little tub of blue disinfectant reused many times that they dunk it in to "rinse"? ugh. can't we get one quick rinse after that with water? but i digress.) taste is nice and fresh, typical weiss beer malt/wheat flavors. finishes crisp and clean. mouthfeel is light and a little creamy. hops play a supporting role per the style, unnoticeable but providing balance. could drink a lot of these and be ok, nothing about this prevents you from drinking more.

The Warrenville Wheat is a year round offering at RB Warrenville that changes styles with the seasons. Arrived to me in a big mug a deep cloudy sunshine yellow with a nice half inch of bubbly white head on top of the brew. Aromas of pale grains with a mellow fruitiness underneath. I get a bit hit of clovey spiciness that positions itself as the dominant aroma here. A bit mellow, but still nice overall.

First sip brings a slighty sweet wheat grain maltiness upfront that has a touch of banana and light fruit flavor in the mix. Clove flavor hits midway through and adds a nice spicy element to the brew. A bit restrained for a hefeweizen, but I'll take this over an American Pale Wheat any day of the week. Finishes a touch chalky, leaving a ground wheat imprint on the tongue.

Mouthfeel is on the thinner side, but it has a certain creaminess that adds to the overall brew. Sturdy carbonation as well. Being the lowest abv brew on the menu, this would be easy to sit down and have a couple of with dinner. A good choice if you're looking for an easy drinkin brew.
