On-tap at The Apple Valley Tap House. Nice to have a solid place with decent beer & good food south of the river!

Pour is odd. Clouded yellow, but as it sits, it gets clearer & clearer, as if the cloudiness is caused by big particles that are falling to the bottom. Smell is faint: wheaty. Not much going on there.

Wodan Weizen is a hefeweizen; this much I know for sure. Banana, clove, & yeastiness jump the palate like a well-telegraphed burglary.

Uncharacteristicallylike, that's all I have. It's a hefe. Nothing special going on, not great, but pretty good.

On-tap at Buster's on 28th into a pint glass.

A: Cloudy pale orange body with practically no head - just a few white bubbles around the extreme edge. Disappointing.

S: Tons of banana, some clove, and a distinct touch of nail polish remover. Weird, but not unpleasant.

T: Follows the nose, plus some sweet malt. Kind of like a banana creme pie. I like it, but the solvent is still there, which I'm sure would bother some people - it's fine by me, though.

M: Lively, spiky, hugely frothy. A bit much - where was all this carbonation in the head?

O: This was a strange one, and one that I'd really like to have again. My wife absolutely loved it, but was the only person at our table who didn't pick up on the nail polish remover. Huh.

Cheers!

A: Light golden hue with white head that thins out.
S: A light grain smell with some lemon and citrus notes.
T: Lemon and wheat character that's smooth and has a clean finish. But the malt has little dimension or depth. It's a fairly thin beer.
M: Moderate carbonation and smooth.
D: A pleasing drinkable beer but there are many better examples in the category

On tap at Acadia.
Poured with minimal head. Has a thick heavy almost syrupy appearance and heavy almost cloudy appearance with golden yellow color.
Aroma is fairly heavy on banana and some clove . Enjoyable enough.
Good wheat flavor with more subdued banana/clove with an additional mild spice like flavor.
Rather heavy feel. Nicely carbonated.
Drinks nicely and overall enjoyable beer.

On tap at the Harriet Brewing tap room.

Appearance: Cloudy deep golden color with a nice creamy white foam head that lasts a good long time. Leaves nice lacing behind throughout.

Smell: Sweet yeast and wheat arome with hints of banana and bubble gum. Just like a good Hefe should smell.

Taste: Sweet and refereshing, with flavors of banana, clove, wheat and light roasted malts. In a word: Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Creamy and slippery on the tongue with low-to-medium carbonation.

Overall: I love a good Hefeweizen and I spent a couple years in Germany drinking many different brands of Hefe's...this one stands right there alongside them, and that is high praise. I have taken home several growlers of this from Harriet over the years.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a hazed dark golden yellow with faint white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Wonderfully full banana and clove aroma. Spot on!
T: Banana, clove, and soft wheat. Unfortunately a bit weaker than the aroma promised.
M: Very soft, smooth, and creamy. Light-medium body.
D: A solid, but not outstanding example of style. Started out very nice, but couldn't keep it going. Still a nicely refreshing summer offerring.

Harriet Wodan Weizen, from a growler.
Hefe Weizen brewed specially for MN Craft Beer Week. Originally tapped at the Blue Nile, Friday, May 13. These notes are from a growler purchased the next day.

Cracking the cap, and banana wafts out, sure as shooting.

Pale apricot appearance, very clouded, with a slim, soon-gone head. A bit disappointed by that. I like a huge head on a hefe wizen. We get it a little bigger on tap. Although, not big enough.

Aroma: banana cream pie, some citrus esters and wheat-y feel. Not picking up clove, so much. Very pleasant, however.

Tasting it, …brisk carbonation, minor but present bitterness. Wheat flavor is here, very refreshing, extra-consumable (remember that, my new word?). This gets better as we go, the flavor gets fuller, the texture is larger and warmer, it feels more and more like a weizen ought to taste. Lush, smooth, and wonderful. Banana flavor hasn't left though, it hangs on to the palate, like an old dog. Getting sweeter, getting spicier. I'm liking this more and more.

A very good Weizen! Great notes of banana and cloves.
The mouthfeel was a little thin, and not real chewy as described on their website. A very good offering from a new brewery!
The only negative I have on this brew is that when I had it on tap, it was under-carbonated. Weizens are usually highly carbonated and have a nice head, that sticks around... Not sure if this is the brewery's fault or Stub & Herbs fault on how they served it...
