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.

Served on tap at Troeg's 2 hours after kegging it...damn was it fresh! Re-sampled numerous times at just about any bar in the HBG area (Kclinger's, McGrath's, Marysville).

Appearance - A cloudy, milky-white, unfiltered beaut. This brew looks so much better than the Franziskaners and those run-of-the-mill wheats. Plus, nobody asks me if I want any fruit in it...but it is so cloudy at first, it is hard to tell where the head is. It is a very nice looking brew all-around.

Smell - Wheat, fruit, hops, and a few more spicy notes I cannot quite place (cinnamon?). Smells almost good enough to eat with a definite sweetness to it.

Taste - The taste was very good. I am usually wary of wheat beers, thanks to Appalachian's Water-Gap Wheat, but this was truly done well. A slight hoppy note with some citrusy and sweet notes throughout. Clove-like flavors also come through. A friendly, yet different brew.

Mouthfeel - Smooth like a glass of milk with little carbonation. Easy going down, with some residue sliding in there as well. Not bad at all.

Drinkability - Like I said, I am not really into the wheat beers all that much, however, this is a great summer sippin brew for those hot days. Very fluffy and easy to drink, and it won't kick you in the head with alcohol. Definitely try this local gem. Kudos to Troeg's for experimenting!

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!
