hold the lemon wedge for me, but other than that this is an interesting and delicious wheat beer. it pours a classic cloudy yellow, very bright, with a tall fluffy white head that slowly fades into sticky lacing. the smell is distinctly yeasty, lots of banana notes in this one, as well as some lighter wheat malt and a sort of saison funk to it. the taste is also more of a hybrid between a hefe and a saison. there are some peppery notes on top of all the citrus, and the malt is more delicate than i am used to. all the elements come together nicely in this beer, and its very drinkable. upbeat carbonation and a touch more body than most pale wheat beers. theres something for everyone in this beer, and is also one of coopersmith's more consistently tasty beers.

Pours a cloudy copper with a huge foamy white head that faded slowly for the style and left creamy walls of lace.

The aroma was of citrus, clove and nugmet with hints of banana, grainy background of sweet wheat and notes of caramel.

The flavor followed the nose with caramel and wheat, grapefruit notes and orange peel, spices like nutmeg and clove and some banana esters. Nicely balanced.

creamy and smooth. Overall a nice wheat beer with a good balance. very drinkable.

A - Good foam head when poured reducing to a little froath. Good yellow brown that is unfiltered.

S - Good hoppy malt smelling of citrus.

T - Taste confirms the malt with citrus taste there is a good aftertaste of malt and clove.

M & D - Good full flavored beer that just seems to hit the spot when desiring a light wheat beer.

(This is actually Mountain Avenue Wheat as there is not Mountain Street in FoCo)

From tap in Hefeweizen glass.

This is a nice beer. I have heard of you either love it or hate it. I think it's a great one to have on their patios and watch the people in Old Town Square. It has a wonderul banana estery nose. The taste is toasty and wheaty with hints of bread like yeast character which makes this beer chewy up front yet dry in the finish. A pretty good one from a small brewery.

Why is there always construction on Mountain Street? Sampled a cloudy orange yellow color. Rather dark for style. A fizzy white head with good staying power but did die out eventually. Decent lacing when a head was present.

The nose is off in my opinion. Noticeable wheat notes with a slight bitterness but there is a huge yeasty aroma that off sets any positives. More of an English yeastiness with big DMS aromas. I typically get DMS from Coops beers but this is much more noticeable and off setting. There is a slight vegi note as well that is board line butyric. Some almost citus hops with a more lemony aroma.

The taste is not as bad but still has some of the off notes that the aroma had. The wheat is more prominent with a good spiciness. Some bready almost biscuit notes blend well. Noticable yeasty flavors with DMS and a more English/earthy feel again. No real "German" hints to call it a hefeweizen. The vegi note is there but light and not so harsh. As more of a US wheat feel with a light lemony finish. Some peppery notes as it warms.

The body was moderate with limited carbonation. Overall I just couldn't get past the off yeast notes. Some positives, I really like the wheat presence, but missing they banana, cloves a distinct German yeast notes I associate with a hefe.

A - Served at the brewpub in a 20 or 22 oz weizen glass. This one is cloudy orange like a good dose of orange and carrot V8 splash, and caries a big 'ole head of classic hefe foam. Leaves lots of lace on the glass, and the dregs look thick and viscous.

S - Big time doughy yeast aromas with some orange rind zest. Fresh and doughy with some zingy citrus notes.

T - This one manages to be extremely yeasty and very citrusy at the same time. And that is exactly what a hefe should strive for!

M - Fresh and zesty, but really full bodied also. The moderate carbonation and orange juice freshness manage too keep it summer despite it's full yeasty body.

D - One hell of a hefe! Perfectly balanced and not at all shy with it's big yeasty and fresh squeezed orange juice flavors.

Wow! Really good H-W! The name at the brewpub today (June 16, 2007) was Mountain AVENUE Wheat.

Came to the table in a proper H-W glass, but unfortunately with a slice of lemon, which I promptly removed. Cloudy yellow body under a chunky two-finger white head. Pretty.

Smell is hay, grass, mild citrus, and slight buttery note.

Taste is clove, citrus, biscuit malt, buttery acetyl and a nice banana-bubblegum finish. Spot on for style and solid.

Mouthfeel is smooth with decent carbonation throughout, but just a bit thin.

Very drinkable, and complex enough that your palate wouldn't get bored having a couple of these. Gotta go get some this summer.
