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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a cloudy golden wheat color. Fizzy with moderate lacing.

S: Yeast, yeast, and more yeast. Has that strong special banana clove smell found only in bavarian wheat beers. Hops are no where to be found, which lets the yeast shine through even more.

T: A wonderfull bouquet of yeasty flavors similar to a heffeweizen, but almost stronger. Strong banana and lemon flavors. Hops presence is low and comes in slightly at the aftertaste. Lemon, banana, orange, and spice aftertaste. Slightly dry finish.

M: Very heavy for the abv, but very understandable since it is unfiltered. The heavy mouthfeel gives more power to the yeasty flavors.

D: I don't think I'd ever get sick of this. Exceptionally drinkable for the heavy mouthfeel.

Overall a superb wheat beer. A weaver of dreams. My only gripe is the low head retention.

I had this beer at a small pub in PA and it was very good and is now one of my favorite beers!

Tried one of these for the first time out of a bottle and was really impressed... Although $8.99 was kind of pricey for a six-pack, I wouldn't mind paying it again for a good, classic witbier like this one. Would definitely recommend this to anyone a fan of this style... A good American wheat beer dominated by banana, clove, and lemon flavors that stand out as much in smell as in the taste... Certainly try this one if you can find it, because its definitely worth it... I really liked this one...

pours a cloudy yellow with a white one finger head and a nice lace. aromas of pepper and spice. lots of yeast strong pepper and spice with clove and hint of coriander. taste is very strong and in your face. mouthfeel light to medium carbonation holds up well. not your weak tasting wheat this beer has strong taste and body to it. one of the better wheat beers out there.

A - Poured a cloudy apple juice color with a thin off-white head that dissipated quickly leaving watery web lacing.

S - Bready yeast and sweet wheat with clove and banana nuances. This beer had an earthy quality.

T - Delicious is how this beer tastes...like frolicking in a delicious wheat field waving voluptuous clove and banana bouquets while a dreamy wheat fairy drops delicious sweet drops of Troeg's Dreamweaver beer in your mouth. I could drink this all day.

Simple yet flavorful with a full wheat presence - nicely balanced and medium bodied.

M&D - Smooth and crisp, well balanced carbonation with a clean refreshing finish. Most definitely one of my favorite session beers. I can't wait to visit the brewery. Thanks to my drinkin' buddy Hyland for this one.

I love the look, nice and cloudy. Has a very pleasant smell, a little lemony. It shows sweetness from the first taste, which really reminds me of a Belgian beer. It is a complex taste, with different flavor nuances seeming to come out with each sip. The mouth feel is excellent. To top off the nice experience, the bottle label is a thing of beauty, from the nice artwork on the tree on the label to the unusual lettering of Dream Weaver to the Troeg's logo on the neck. These nice touches all added up to make it a very enjoyable beer.
