Ok, this is one of the best beers I have ever had in my life. It is a perfect balance of wheat, banana, cloves, and Bavarian style brewed cloudiness. It is clean, smooth (not crisp), and I cant explain it but I love this beer. On my quest to find the best Hefe in the world this summer, this one may be it. 2 Growlers down and 1 in the fridge.

On tap at Falling Rock before the official release

Appearance: Arrives with the liquid a cloudy honey color; the relatively modest head leaves a few streaks behind

Smell: Bready, with banana and clove phenols

Taste: Bready, with strong banana and clove flavors building by mid-palate; peppery spice elements build after the swallow, but the finish is dominated by the banana and clove flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied; very creamy with moderately high carbonation

Overall: Having been impressed by the Dry Dock Hefe when Bill Eye was the brewer, I was expecting this to be a terrific beer and I was not disappointed

On-tap at the brewery and served in a proper Weiss glass.

I'm going to keep this simple. This is one of the best US Weiss beers I've had the pleasure of drinking. The appearance is spot on, with good haze and a thick eggshell cap that sticks with the beer the whole way down the glass. Heavy banana and clove aromas greet the nose, followed by bready raw grains. The aromas flow nicely into the flavor, where they're joined by a dense body and lots of soft carbonation. Overall, this was a great beer. I will definitely have it again the next time I stop in.

Enjoyed at the brewery itself. Outdoor drinking was better with the natural light because it gave a rather luminous gold color that was just gorgeous to look at. Inside it was a more murky dark gold to light brownish color. Bright contrasting white head. Thick head, creamy, and meringue-like. Delight. Nose was very fresh with the traditional banana-clove alongside a few vanilla notes and yeasty/bready notes. On the palate I enjoyed what felt like a more desert-version of this beer as I got more of the vanilla with the banana-clove, soft malt flavors, and an almost dangerous drinkability from this amazing beer. Prost has hit this one out of the park.

Draft served in the awesome, appropriate glass at the brewery. Prost’s Weisbier is a gorgeous, glowing orange-golden in color with a thick, rich sheet white head that retains well and leaves heavy lace. This was a fantastic hefeweizen, and easily in my top tier of both domestic and international versions. A flavorful wheat body brings a balanced sweetness and bready character with a generous hand of banana and clove - rich, round, and delicious. Lots of yeast and a little secondary spice complexity. Grassy hops and flits of dried citrus. Creamy, full carbonation and a moderate body. All kinds of things going right with this beer.

Beautfiul pour, huge, thick, creamy head with lovely soapy lacing down the sides of the weizen glass. Beautiful unfiltered haze, with a lovely campfire-like orange glow to light. Head is remarkably huge, even with the aggressive pour. The aroma in the glass in classic weissbier; spicy clove, hint of banana, upfront wheat malts less yeastiness than expected but still present. Taste is equally as captivating. The yeast is more prominant here, more bready malt with a perfectly hopped finish. Fruitiness, like pears, deep in there. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, active and lively carbonation.

Wow, another great beer from Prost. Right up there with Odell's Easy Stret and Dry Dock Hefe. Damn drinkable. True German hefeweizen, from right here in Denver.

Poored a nice 3 finger head that kept a great lace through the whole beer. Color was a cloudy tan. Smell was of banana yeast and german hops. The taste is not over powered by fruit but more of a crisp hefe with a light medium body. Overall a kick ass hefey from a rad brewery.

one of the best weiss beers being made in the usa id have to imagine. this one is pure and traditional, with a touch of colorado to it. it pours deep straw colored with a three inch white head of light foam that rests on top of the hefe glass its served in. it smells like bananas and shredded wheat, like a cereal bar or something. the flavor is delicious. the banana is still there, but its mellowed out by an allspice type flavor from the yeast, fresh mowed grass, and a sweetness that i cannot explain. it is extremely refreshing but maintains enough body to not be watery. this isnt girl beer, although any female beer drinker is sure to enjoy this. it aint a shocktop is what im trying to say here. its interesting and easy drinking. low abv makes it an all day beer. love it

0.5l pour to a weizen glass.
ABV 4.3%, IBU 12

My wife and I visited the Prost taproom on Sunday (6/23) and we both agreed this was our favorite of the 5 samples we tried, so we split a glass ($5).

A: Hazy golden with a coppery tone at the core, capped by an impossibly white crown of 1.5-finger dense foam. Good carbonation crawling up the glass, good head retention, pretty lacing - everything you want in a hefeweizen.

S: Loaded with all the banana/clove ester goodness that the best of the Bavarian Hefeweizens exhibit. Sweetness, wheat bread, some bubble gum/candy - all are present and aptly strong.

T: Spot-on flavor, big clove and banana elicited from this yeast. Vague citrus amidst loads of wheat bread/grass/hay. Respectful and authentic to to the best of the Germans.

M: Somewhat creamy, well-carbonated (the gas-inducing/burping sort) and lip-smackingly malty. Sweet finish with just enough bittering to give some balance. Lighter-medium body, but still has a chewier finish.

O: A lovely, low-octane, highly-flavored weissbier - perfect for sipping on a gradually warming early afternoon. Delicious and crave-worthy. Thankful that they know better than to 'ruin' this with a lemon wedge and such... really great on its own. Prost!
