12 ounce bottle given as an extra from KRAMER17801, thank you for the chance to try this brew Jason, consumed Friday, poured into my Aventinus weizen glass, reviewed from notes, color is golden yellow ith some orange tint, 1 1/4 inch big foamy white head that stuck around for a while, minor lacing, aroma has bananas, yeast, mild wheat, citrus, bread, and mild sweetness, taste is light at first with a wheat welcoming, some cloves and banana make up the middle, citrus and more wheat in the finish, gets a little more spicy as it warms, sweet and tangy too with a very small hint of what seemed like booze, hard to believe in this style though, chewy, sweet, and malty mouthfeel, medium level of carbonation, medium bodied, this seemed unfiltered, could drink lots of these, light feel overall and smooth, nice beer for hot weather, glad I got to try a beer from a brewery that I had not heard of, I would drink this again, recommended

Thanks to Kramer17801 for finally giving me the ability to try something from this micro of microbreweries.

A-Like cloudy, turbid lemonade. A CRAZY bright white head. The head was so explosive that it seemed like it might be the indication of a problem and not simple over carbonation.

S-A bit of spicy lemon and not much else.

T-Again, a touch of spicy lemon and not much else. Very one dimensional and dull.

M-Light bodied with a bit of lemon zest bitterness in the finish. Very weak feeling overall.

D-Not really sure what to think about this one. It didn't taste bad but then again it didn't really taste at all. No character to speak of. This one needs some work.

Thanks to Kramer17801 for giving me a bottle of this. Poured from a 12oz. bottle into my shaker glass. Appears a mildly cloudy golden yellow color with barely half an inch of off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of grassy wheat, lemon and a touch of banana. Tastes of fruit such as banana, apple, and pear. A little thin bodied with medium carbonation. I could drink a few of these on a warm day.

lots of head on this guy. i can't pour it slow enough. will have to let it settle. head settles fairly rapidly but sticks around 1/4 inch of rocky, barely off-white head, pretty good lace started already. very hazy, opaque even, with yeast. lots of yeast in the bottom of this guy.

smell is strong banana-clove-spice, a little malt, a little yeast

taste is a bit much on the wheat-malt side of things, especially compared with the smell. still get lots of banana, a little orange, clove, a bit of yeast

mouthfeel is smooth, but a bit thin.

drinkability i think is incredible.. i could throw these down like nothin. overall a great wheat beer. prime example.

A- Pours a yellowish orange with a large, 2 finger head.

S- Sweet with floral notes. Lots of raw sugary sweetness.

T- Very wheaty, light fruit flavor, banana, spices, a tad bland but no off flavors.

M- Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

D- Fairly drinkable wheat beer. A little bland but I enjoyed it.

Bottle shared by ajsdad06.

Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus hefe aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

Very drinkable beer.

12oz. bottle into shaker pint on 12/26/08. Thanks to KRAMER17801 for sharing.

A - Poured a hazy, cloudy golden color with bubbly white head that eventually disappeared altogether. There was way too much carbonation in the bottle initially... probably 90% head and 10% beer.

S - Some wheat malt and clove notes, as well as a mild banana presence. Not much going on here, really.

T - Wheat malt and a bit of spicy yeast with a clove character. Banana and bubblegum notes are there, but are very subdued overall.

M - Thin, watery mouthfeel bordering flat. Opposite of how carbonated this was initially.

D - This one needs a lot of work. The carbonation was out of control, resulting in a very flat, watery mouthfeel. While it didn't smell or taste half bad, I think the mouthfeel really affected everything else here, resulting in a very ho-hum beer. Not sure I would name this "Celebration Wheat". With that said, I am looking forward to trying other releases from Copper Kettle, and will keep these guys on the radar.
