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.

Nice beer that tastes of banana and spice. A good head that remains throughout and the beer maintains a solid, albeit medium yellow appearance. A wheat beer that I prefer during the colder months, less so in the hot summer months.

Pours a bright gold with a medium haze, almost as if it were partially filtered. Very nice, white head.

Smells yeasty with a very heavily wheated grain bill. Black pepper and cereal. A firm and well composed aroma, stronger than most American wheats yet still not as intense as European hefes.

Tastes expertly brewed. White pepper up front, a very creamy middle with spice and lemon. The lemon grows a bit more tart at the back end and lingers on the finish.

Basically a cross between an American Pale Wheat and an old world hefe. The yeast bite is much more pronounced and peppery than, say, Blue Moon or 312, but it's still very clearly an American iteration of the style. For what it is, it's quite good, largely bolstered by a nearly flawless body.

Bottle poured into snifter. Old gold color, very little head. Wheat, yeast and hint of banana to nose. Peppery notes on front of palate with the slight flavor of banana on back. Overall a nice beer ... wheat flavor is there.

If you like banana you'll love this beer. Otherwise, you won't.

M: Light up front with a little fuller as you aproach the end.

O: Fairly straight forward Hefe nothing crazy about it but really nothing bad either just a solid beer.

Nice unfiltered look to this beer. Some type of grassy, not sweet banana scent. Honestly, doesn't smell all that inviting to me (personally). Fingers crossed... ok so the not sweet banana smell actually works with the flavor of this beer, somewhat yeasty. I'm getting the wheat flavor lingering with this beer in the finish. A bit thin with moderate carbonation. Ehaah...nah.
