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.

A hazy golden pour with a thin brilliantly white crown. Hefeweizens are all about letting the yeast lead the parade and Tröegs has done an admirable job. Yeast phenolics dominate the nose, with that familiar spicy clove characteristic lead the charge while cracked pepper and a hint of citrus dance in the background. The flavor profile is much the same, combining a good level of carbonation and lighter mouthfeel for a solid example of an American Hefe.

Bottled on Oct 18, 2015. Not sure if freshness has to do with it, but taste a little funny...

Gold in color with a light haziness and a fingernail of eggshell white. The aroma is intensely that of banana esters, pale wheat, and a hint of bubble gum. I taste banana esters and pale wheat. The mouth is light and smooth.

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.

Looked and smelled nice. It had a good golden color and a frothy head that lasted a while. The smell was very clove-y, wheaty, and there was a citrusy hop smell to it also. When I first took a sip, it tasted like someone had just dumped the contents of my spice cabinet into my beer. It actually made me feel a little sick about 3/4 through and was tough to finish, especially because of how carbonated it was. There's a banana type aftertaste which was a welcome reprise from all the clove. I personally thought it needed more bright, citrusy flavors to contrast all those murky spices. Probably would not drink again.

Reminds me of a normal Hefeweizen. Thought it tasted close to victory brewing co, winter cheer.

12oz, bottled on 070615. Thanks to my friend, Derek, for picking this up in Ohio for me.
A - clouded yellow body with a very thin, foamy white head
S - fairly typical hefe aroma with wheat, lemon, clove, banana, bubblegum, faint pepper, earthy hops
T - nice balance of flavor with all the above present
M - effervescent lighter body prickles the tongue as it dances across the palate
O- pretty good representation of the style. Glad to try it. It seems I'm always excited to try beers not in my market.

Aroma is wheaty and citrusy, with a huge clove punch. Notes of sour lemon and orange pith emerge.

Flavor is wheat dominant, becoming biscuity malt dominant in the finish. Muddled citrus and clove add character early, but aren't as pronounced as in aroma. Banana surfaces late. Seems a little watery.

12 ounce bottle served in a pint glass.

Pours a clear, golden color with a nice two finger head. Nice lacing throughout.

Smells of wheat, biscuit, cloves, perhaps some lemongrass as well.

Pretty much taste the same as it's aroma. Very easy to drink. Light and crisp!

Very nice beer... one of the better ones I've had in this category. Worth a 6 pack for easy, summertime drinking.
