Notes: The dream begins with open top fermentation. At high krausen a foamy, rocky yeast head crests the sides of the fermenter releasing notes of black pepper and spicy clove. Unfiltered and cloudy with yeast, it's slightly tart & downright refreshing.

My wife found this as a single bottle at the local beer store and I was really looking forward to tasting this one. Unfortunately, after chilling it down and then pouring it out, I realized it wasn't the freshest and I could not find a date code on the bottle anywhere. Hopefully, we'll be able to find a fresh version in the future.

Pours a hazy gold. Thick foam. Spicy aroma. Light spicy fruit body. Very crisp. Just the right amount of sweetness and spice. Clean finish. One of the best wheat beers I've had. Great all around.

Hazy pale yellow with a 1" white head, which lasts. Moderate lacing.

Aroma of cloves, banana, bread, hay.

Taste is cloves, banana, wheat, biscuit malt.

Thin body, moderate carbonation. Dry finish.

A pretty good wheat ale.

Appearance: Cloudy gold, large white head, decent lacing.
Aroma: Yeast, soft fruit (yes, like banana), bready, light spiciness, some pepper.
Taste: Accent on the wheat. Typical esters for the style. Slight tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, dry finish.
Overall: A standard bearer that has outlived countless tedious hazy IPAs.

Consumed over a year past its best by so I’m sure it has lost something, but still pretty good. Pours a golden yellow with a slight haze. Smells of banana and clove like a typical Hefeweizen. Will definitely buy this again... and will check the date.

Poured into cup out of a 12oz bottle purchased at the brewery.

Pours a golden straw yellow with minimal head. Smell and taste in this one are overpowered by clove, and spice, and I love it. Also possible notes of pepper and fresh banana bread. Feel is light with moderate carbonation, and it’s the ultimate refreshing spring/summer beer. Really nice offering and one of my favorites from Troegs

On tap at Savona’s Trattoria, Poughkeepsie, NY.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. A modest foam head, about a fingernail length, nevertheless retains well.

Fruity aromas of banana and orange zest stand out in particular. Typical Hefeweizen aromas of clove like spices and wheaten malt are also evident.

Medium bodied, smooth and with a clean and soft wheat and bready malt backbone. Well balanced with clove like spices, while the banana and orange flavors add a gentle fruity accent to the overall profile. Moderately carbonated with a dry and clean finish.

Solid example of a Hefeweizen that is easy to drink.

I got a bottle of this beer off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle store. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had subtle clove and mild hints of citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with banana chips, clove and lemon. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

This beer is pretty good. Seems muted in many aspects compared to similar beers in the style. It's not as cloudy as others. The clove, black pepper, banana smell is not as strong as others. The taste follows the nose, but again, seems muted. Medium feel with good carbonation. Overall, a beer I would easily drink again, but I wouldn't say it's a prime example of the style.
