Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This beer hits you with an unexpected taste upon first sip. If one is expecting a dark and powerful beer like so many supplied by Troegs' company, this is going to be a shock. Though it isnt very dark, it still retains a level of taste that can only be matched by a darker brew, though it keeps its character and what it is going for. I would recommend this to anyone who is not a fan of the traditional beer taste.

Beer pours clear but becomes beautifully murky with the addition of the yeast residue (or maybe that's my saliva). Rich head dissipates too quickly. More orange than amber in color. Strong banana aroma, reminiscent of a high school organic chem experiment--esters gone bad. In other words, this is an artificial banana smell. But pleasant nonethless. Other notes are spices, principally clove. Banana and clove dominate on the palate as well. Completely inoffensive, lives up to expectations for a transitional seasonal beer. If Dream Weaver were a boy band, it would be One Direction. So much for the brewer's nod to Gary Wright.

BOD 3/2/15. Pours a slightly hazy golden. Outstanding head volume, normal lacing and retention.

World class nose of clove, light banana and hints of pepper over a base of wheat and pale malt.

Heavy light body, which is normal for the style, with a very smooth texture. Superbly carbonated with a rich prickly effervescence from the middle on.

The flavor profile is borderline world class due to a slight lack of complexity. While intense and well balanced, it is clove focused and other hefeweizen aspects are rather subdued, such as banana. It begins with clove phenolics and they remain through the finish. The middle brings very slight banana, a nice grainy wheat aspect and only a hint of hops - no real bitterness to speak of. The finish is a slowwwww fade of the clove phenolic.

A very enjoyable American Wheat more on the Hefe side of the spectrum than the Oberon side. Pours a perpetually hazed golden straw into an 8 oz mug, the only glass wear at my house that isn’t packed up for moving. Nice white head, superb retention. Aroma is more complex than just bananas and wheat, although both are present. Dried apricot, bread dough, tremendous spicing including, oddly enough, salt peter???, and some esters. Tastes like a wheat cereal with coriander, pepper, clove, and dried bananas mixed in. Very spicy. Nice carbonation. I really enjoy it. Nearly full body. Nice carbonation. A winner.

Hazy cloudy pale. Classic hefeweizen scent, with noticeable citrue. Wow, this is a really tasty wheat beer. Definitely better than Sierra Nevada's, which is the last wheat beer I can remember drinking. The citrus tones are nicely balanced with the malt, making it feel rather hearty, especially for what is usually considered a light(er) beer. Tasty indeed. Too bad this only comes 3-to-a-12-pack. Absolutely worthy of its own six-pack.

Thankyou Drafting Room for brinking this very yummy Troegs tap offering! It poured out a creamy looking peachy apricot color that there was no way to see through at all, this almost looked frozen. Nice creamy, milkshakey, egg-white head that reduced down to a nice covering. Carbination is not noticable. Scents of banana, fresh grash, gingerale, white grapes.

Incredibly smooth, almost thick, but yet soooo drinkable. Tastes of bananas, very light white wine spritzer, and slight citrus. Very clean and fresh! After the lemon is added- which I looove in my wheats, the flavors become a bit crisper. Sooo very nice! Once again, kudos to the Troegner brothers!
