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

A: The beer is quite hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly dissipated, leaving only a very narrow ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of bananas and clove are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of bananas and clove from the yeast along with notes of wheat.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has very nice aromas and flavors of bananas and clove but seems like its appearance could use more in the way of a head and visible carbonation.

Serving type: bottle

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.

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

Served in a Weißbier glass, the two finger head was contained nicely in the slender glass.
Head retention was great with this beer, lasting for the duration of the glass.
Opaque soft golden orange color once the trub is poured in. Delicate spotty lacing around the edges.

Aroma has all the hallmarks of a traditional weissbier, lemony banana, bread crusts, mild clove.
Nothing really pops though, but at least it fits the profile well.

Taste is a little more on the mild side, banana, lemon, bread crust.
Light body, creamy texture, though it could have a little bit more heft to it.
Overall it's pretty good, not sure how fresh it is, but it was ok.

Poured from the jug into my Tawandang weissbier glass from Bangkok. A lovely cloudy amber brew. Beautiful white foam in the tall glass. Spicy aromas.

Tart with the classic German esters. Hugely aromatic in the nose. This just seems very elegant and well made, everything in balance. Sensually malty, but a thinner body, perhaps, than some in this style. The cloves are complemented with something like tangerine. Rich yet thoroughly refreshing.

Really a tremendous Hefeweizen and great to see it available in growlers. From the half-gallon bought at Mayfair Liquors in Denver.

Old school hefe, plenty of cloves, band-aids, & green banana peel. Fairly fluffy mouthfeel to it. Drinks great in the heat. Lovely nose that matched the flavors to a tee, plus a little wheattynes

Poured on tap at Kramarczuk's Sausage Company in Minneapolis.

Golden pale body, not that cloudy but with a solid opaque body color. Creamy classic white top presented if a bit tiny, with light elevating streams of carbonation just barely. Real nice looking hefe.

Real clean aroma on the nose. Classic fruity esters but stays away from pungent fruit and stinky sweet banana so much. Has a sense of lager like crisp and light body, with a chewy malt smell and nice hints of small fruit orange to stone peach character.

Excellent palate. Big fruit flavor in the mid palate and almost breakfast warmth of orange. Light bodied but a great almost German pilsner dough quality particularly on the finish. Aftertaste of really nice bread finish and lager like crispness which is quite surprising.

A really neat tasting Hefe with some neat mix of different German style characters. Great solid brew.

Pours a nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy white head, leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty. The taste is malty, yeasty, grassy. Medium body. Overall a nice little brew.

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.

Delicious. Spicy banana and clove balanced over doughy malts with a slightly sweet finish. The aroma is yeasty, mingling with the clove. My only complaint is the sweet finish, otherwise this is a fantastic sessionable brew. Easily one of the best hefes you'll find.
