Had on-tap while watching the Rockies shell the Cubs 11-5 on a pleasant August evening. Served in the ever fan friendly plastic pint glass.

A: Cloudy chocolate brown with fairly active carbonation. A dense beige head starts out strong and settles to a nice pillow atop the beer. Leaves a good amount of lace.

S: Mild, with a slight clove bite and a touch of baker's chocolate. Maybe a hint of banana. The beer's weak suit.

T: Bittersweet chocolate is backed up by a mild clove bitterness. Wheat adds a dry bread flavor. There's a slight acidity toward the end. Finishes rather clean.

M: Medium light body is grainy and has very soft and silky carbonation.

D: Not a bad offering from Sandlot. It seems a bit lightened up for the masses, but was a nice ballgame refresher. A massive step up from the Coors Banquet and Light that dominate the ballpark's beer stands.

Pours a cloudy, well carbonated caramel-brown, topped with a one finger ivory head. Leaves webs of lacing.
Carmelized banana aroma, yeasty, wheat note, toasted banana bread, and spices.
Spiced banana bread taste, also reminiscent of a ginger bread cookie.
Light-medium bodied, good drinkability.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

This dunkelweizen poured a cloudy, amber-brown color with white foam that clung to the glass a bit. The smell was bananas and wheat with mild cloves and a hint of something sharp. The taste was fruity banana with cloves, wheat malt, yeast, and citrus mixed in. The mouthfeel was smooth and tangy, yet dry, with medium body and low carbonation. The wheat malt and banana esters lingered nicely on the tongue. This was a very enjoyable dunkel hefeweizen.

The second brew I sampled on our recent BA visit. the beer is a cloudy tan color upon arrival in a flute glass. Off white head rests on the surface and is mostly edge layer quickly. Aroma is immediately apparent and appealing with banana, cloves, and lemon letting themselves be known. First sip reveals a small and surprisingly prickly carbonation with medium body. Flavor is again very fruity with banana, lemon and actually a hint of bubblegum and some sweet spices too. Rather complex to my palate, exciting! The beer is very smooth and an impressive example of the style I think. Another great brew @ the Sandlot. Cant imagine how great it would be to drink brews of this quality while at a Major League game!
