Notes from last week, I waited to post this so cbutova wouldn't know I got a nice package of Wisconsin beers. Much thanks to jmp485 for trading this. Poured into a weizen glass.

Hazy golden with a huge sticky white head. Eventually stays at about half a finger and leaves a little bit of lacing.

Nose is sweet, spicy and aromatic. Lots of wheat, cinnamon, clove and bubblegum.

Flavors aren't as strong as they are in the scent, but strong nonetheless. Huge amount of bubblegum and sugary sweetness seems to take the lead here. Some banana and clove but not as much as I usually get in a hefeweizen. Some medicinal notes and alcohol taste. Nice fresh lemony yeast on the finish.

Carbonation seems huge at first but seems to tone down after time. Overall smooth and a little bit creamy.

Definitely not your average hefe, sweetness I think is a little over the top, but I enjoyed it.

Thanks to grub for opening this 12 oz.

Pours a hazy golden/orange, thin bone white head forms, settles to a thick ring, some lace spots on the glass. Smell is buttery, honey, some brown sugar, banana, clove, almost cinnamon like spiciness, alcohol is slightly detectable, interesting. Taste is caramel sweetness, wheat, honey, some light grass, banana and tropical fruit, cloves, spice, alcohol is well hidden, quite nice. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation, spritzy, alcohol warmth, quite nice. Solid wheat beer, thanks Russ!

Picked up this single in a mix in match going through Prescott. There is a date on the bottle, not clear if its freshness or bottle, but its 7/28.

Off the pour the head is a billowing monster up to nearly 3 inches and I havnt poured the whole bottle.
Head settles rather quickly leaving a solid cap of retention. Color is a light copper golden. A small amount of haze in there.

Aroma is brilliant, caramel forward, grainy sweetness, plenty of lemon and a clove likeness.

Some sweet flavors upfront, drying out quick and dry on the finish. Floral hops, clove/ belgiany funk coming forward strong, as well as a bit of sourdough breadyness and a touch of malt.
Mild warmth through the swallow. Finishing tart with some lemon, warmth and banana.
Light and crisp mouthfeel.

A terrific brew for the style, although not somthing I'd seek out as its not my type of styled beer. However still a solid beer and excellent for the style.
