BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Pennsylvania, United States

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.

15 IBU

55% Wheat
Hops: German Northern Brewer

This reviewer was spot on... "A: Clear sunshine yellow, very active carbonation throughout, 1/4 inch head that stays. S: Bananas, but the artificial syrupy kind, and apple tartness, slight clove spice. T: Empty. Not much there on the front end, slight apple and banana on the back-end. A super disappointment here. M: Very high carbonation, almost too much, similar to that of seltzer water, very bitey with each gulp. O: Very disappointed. I was hoping this would fit the bill for my summer go-to this year. Nope."

I freakin love Troeggs but I can't handle the strong wheat with no sweet. Nectar anyone?

I was not feeling this beer at all. Nor my friends. Not sure what the hype is about. Tasted very watery and taste wasn't great at all.

Poured into a weizen glass.

A - Pale yellow coloration, transparent, hmm, unfiltered? Could have fooled me. Thin soapy head, not much lacing left behind.

S - The aroma of lemon juice fills the nose. That is all.

T - Banana candy with a lemon backing. Bland and one sided, there isn't much here. I know it's not supposed to be a german style hefeweizen, but come on, give me something.

M - Light bodied, sharp carbonation, slightly watery consistency.

D - November Golf. No Go. I suppose if you were looking for a high citrus powered alternative to lemonade that had an abv, this would suit you well. Otherwise don't bother.

light cloudy gold in appearance. Smell is a nice blend of hops, malt and spices. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Taste is more on a Belgian wheat, but a ok blend of what you want in this type of brew. Overall a rather flat beer that leave the mouth wonder what it is drinking. It is a little in flavor, taste and aftertaste.

Cloudy yellow with a small white head.Nice carbonation and no lacing.

Yeast and sweet smells emerge from the glass.Mabey pepper.

Sweet,yeast and some slight bitterness.

The carbonation isnt that bad, it sorda attacks your tongue.

This stuff aint bad.This is the first time I left the yeast out of the glass and it taste way better then with it in.I think the yeast used to give me headaches in the past so we will see whats up.I dont know if ide buy again but a solid brew.
