Thanks goes to kirkpjr for this interesting beer. Poured from a bottle into my tulip.

A: Cloudy golden yellow. Full three fingers of bright white head. Best looking beer of the weekend. tons of stick lace. Cap sets up nicely.

S: Wheat and citrus are the main ingredients I can pick out. Spices and belgian yeast are apparent. A decent amount of the abv can be picked up as well.

T: Dry wheat, clove, citrus fruit, banana, bubble gum, yeast. Lightly hoppy finish. Reminds me a lot of an amped up heffe.

M: Medium body. Light carbonation. Dry.

D: Overall a rather interesting beer. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottle number 74.

The GPBC Belgeweizen pours a roasted straw brown, a little less brilliant than amber and slightly hazy. The pour causes an inch head to form. My next pour will be into a hefe glass. There is a good bit of lacing.

As far as the aroma, the trademark Belgian yeast comes through a haze of roasted wheat and malt that has almost a nutty aroma. There are hints of dried fruit and citrus as well.

The initial taste is of a citrus bitterness. There are hints of the Belgian yeast and alcohol, but most of the taste of this beer comes from the finish which is all wheat bread and malt encased in mild bitter.

The mouthfeel is quite nice with lots and lots of carbonation. The beer has a medium body, and although the finish falls off in weight, it sticks around for a while.

Essentially, this is a heavier Belgi-Hefe, making it a Hefe that I enjoy drinking. The breadiness is a little strong, but overall this beer is quite nice. Big Good People Brewing fan, so keep up the good work guys!

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Stone IRS tulip. County Line Batch #1, Date 10/4/2010, Bottle #72, hand-written.

Thanks to Beerwolf77 for one hell of an odd brew to kill the "Wild Weekend"!

A - A tall three-finger off-white head with great retention and collar after collar of thick lace left on the glass tops the cloudy amber-golden colored beer.

S - Awesome notes of Belgian yeast floating through some fruity banana esters. Mellow wheat, dry straw, and a very mild funk on the finish.

T - Soft wheat and pale malt with Belgian yeast and mild spice and a banana fruity ester finish. Honestly, it's a little bland when it's all mixed together.

M - Highly carbonated, the bubbles dance on the tongue with a crisp and slightly spicy finish.

D - Sort of bland in the flavor when it's all combined, all the nuances seem to run together. No real wildness in this brew, it's unique but never great.

22oz. bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Bottle # 72 of 96. Thanks to beerwolf77 for sharing this one!

(A)- Pours a cloudy orange color. Produced a nice fluffy off-white head with great retention. Plenty of lacing.

(S)- A dry earthy biscuit-like lemon. Lightly tart in there with the fruit.

(T)- Same as the smell. Hints of brett in front of a beer reminiscent of a triple. Tart lemon with an earthy biscuit and banana.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. An interesting combo of belgian influences and tart fruits. A bit bitter. 11.5%ABV? Sure fooled me.

(D)- An interesting take on the style. An imperial Hefe, that seems like a tripel most likely due to its strength. Rather good though; enjoyable.
