Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Cloudy orange gold color,decent amount of carbonation which was very noticable. Aroma was yeast,wheat,and spice. Taste was the same but some pepper and a dry finish. I agree that this came off a bit like a watered down tripel but it was light and refreshing and just not as dense or heavy as most tripels. Perfect summer beer or with a light lunch which is how I enjoyed it

I did not like this, it taste similar to a very light tripel belgium at first but a very watered down version of it, not my fav from troegs i prefer the red hibiscus ipa that troegs make which is very good

The appearance was a nice hazy yellow to orange color, definitely looks filtered to me. In the weizen glass, it definitely had a nice two finger soft white foamy head that dissipates a fairly moderate pace. The smell was slightly peppery yet clove-like banana-esque refreshing-ness. I would say spectacular in Summer. The taste was peppery spicy with a super nice allocated banana-ness coming back to balance it all out. The aftertaste was slightly banana/spiciness leading to a nice refreshing (could be construed as watery) aftertaste. I’d say it was a dry finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium and shows a pretty good sessionable quality running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation hits, but isn’t overly done. Overall, if there’s ever any hefeweizen I’d ever like to replicate in my homebrewing, it would be this.

Poured from the bottle. See-through not cloudy like most hefeweizens. Super sweet bubblegum wheat flavor.

A sweet tease of the senses. Doesn't push me over the edge but keeps me interested enough to want to come back a time or two.

Happy dreams........

Nice beer that tastes of banana and spice. A good head that remains throughout and the beer maintains a solid, albeit medium yellow appearance. A wheat beer that I prefer during the colder months, less so in the hot summer months.
