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.

There's nothing wrong with Tröegs DreamWeaver Wheat, but there also isn't anything terribly exciting about it either. Granted, I was served this beer in a pint glass and with very little head, so that may contribute in small part to the rather ordinary appearance (hazy yellow).

But it wouldn't effect the aromas or flavors significantly, neither of which stood out in any significant way. The nose was very mild with faint hints of banana and wheat. In the mouth, the banana opened up, but was really the only major flavor present - there was nearly no clove presence at all.

It is certainly a drinkable beer, but really remains generally uninteresting.

Dream Weaver served in an oversized glass mug. No head on this pour, just some spotty foam glaze. Orange/amber in color with yeast in suspension. Not a fan of this stupid mug. 3.0

Wheaty whiffs with classic fruity and musty yeast esters and spices. Pear, coriander, and honey all ring bells. Citric character is implied from a marriage of sweetness and acidity. Subtle blood orange and white tea. I like the nose on this wheat beer. 4.0

Bitterness at the beginning, malty tang and tartness in the middle, and finishing with a dry pear cider nuance and yeast must. Some green apple, banana, and a little bit of maraschino juice. Grassy hops are muted in the finish. The wheat malts are most pronounced and framed nicely. 3.5

Medium-light body with soft carbonation. High drinkability. 3.5

A good pale wheat ale that's in a bit over its head as a hefeweizen. Still a nice warm weather drink. 3.5
