Pours a cloudy golden with a big soft rocky head that coats the glass as you drink...nose is of cloves primarily...this has a fairly nice maltiness to it..banana notes emerge ever so slightly as you drink it...not a bundle of flavor, but it is easy drinking, thirst quenching and a nice soft malty flavor....A great summer beer, but not an all-time great HEFE..Very solid though...

this is one beautiful beer! deep golden color, the addition of all the yeast provides a very cloudy appearance and makes the head big and rocky...and it sticks around for the entire glass. aroma is somewhat muted, with the usual wheat and yeast spice characteristics, plus a touch of summit (northwest) hops which gives it a quite citrusy smell. a nice big mouthfeel and full body! although not huge in the taste department...enough of the bubble gum and vanilla flavors to make up for the lack of the big clove and banana flavors that make weizens so delectable. another summit winner! this is a great minnesota summer delight.

Very cloudy light-gold color, 1/4 inch head that I was expecting to be a litle bigger and rolling in character. Nice fresh aroma, a little nutmeg. Neutral mouthfeel, a little lacking in flavor but leans toward the spiced banana estery with just a slight tartness at the end. Better than I remembered it, not off-putting or sour but not super flavorful. Certainly easily drinkable in quantity. Other than the Grand, this is my least favorite Summit brew.

The beer has a hazy golden appearance with a big fat white head. It dissipates quickly, however it still laces nicely with what is left. It has a very nice aroma that displays most of your typical weizen qualities, with vanilla and clove being the strongest. Beautiful spiciness to the taste of this beer. And almost some citrus. Maybe a little. Very nice carbonation. This beer goes down the hatch very easily. One of my summer fall backs. Nicely done hefe weizen here.
