Draft at West rail Tap & Grill. Weak head, cloudy golden body, normal weisse aroma and taste. Pretty decent approximation of the style, except for the appearance.

On-draught @ Prost. Brief impressions:

HEAD: White and fluffy. Soft looking. 5 minute retention.

BODY: To style, it's a hazy orange.

AROMA: Banana, clove, wheat, orange peel. Very inviting. Style-appropriate.

TASTE: The wheat backbone could taste fresher, but the clove and banana yeast esters are on point. Vitaminy and rich. It's not as orange peel forward as would be ideal. Generally well balanced, but it could be dialed in more. Built to style conventions.

TEXTURE: Refreshing, smooth, wet, somewhat soft, and Overcarbonated. A softer lighter feel on the palate would be an improvement.

Complements the taste well, but it fails to elevate the beer as a whole.

OVERALL: Drinkability isn't high for the style, but it's above average in general. Overall, this is a competently brewed expression of a hefeweizen, but it can't hold a candle to the best traditional German offerings. Well worth trying, and a beer I'd happily nab a 6 pack of. Solid work from Prost.

The Prost Brewery is beginning to grow on me for various reasons. Their Dunkel and Pils are sublime, but the one that always seems to irritate me is the WeiBier. I have had the Weibier on numerous occasions over different months and it never tastes the same. I was told this was due to brew temps changing. I'm not sure I agree with that statement. Sometimes the clove taste is barely there while other times the banana aroma is not present at all. The last time through it was almost acrid in taste, with a steel after taste and harsh finish. Not what one would expect from a now established brewery.
I have a strong passion towards Weissen's in general and really want to see Prost get this one right. After all it is a GABF winner.
Consistency in brewing will make this beer a home run, and I hope Prost can get and keep it there.
