Lively mint freshness enhances silken carbolic nature and tart citric-spiced zest of pale bodied Weiss. Hearty Scotch malt essence soaks delicate off-dry banana-clove finish. Competes well with French/ Belgian-styled wheat ales, though lacking peculiar wine-like tendencies.
Silken alpine-watered moderation brings white-peppered hop spicing and rewarding floral-clove embrace to lemon-soured banana tartness, storming past bubbly champagne-like carbonation. A promising light-bodied pale-yellowed German wheat beer for summer session.
Overwhelmingly fizzy carbonation cannot deter superb grain mesh and aromatic caramel splendor permeating clear rust-hued wheat. Lively on the tongue ’til sweet malt finish beckons.
Sweet cocoa influence consumes burnt caramel and smoked barleymalts of moderately creamy fluffy white-headed medium body. Delicate clove spicing counteracts ‘dark’ beer tendencies such as ripe raisin interlude and milky texture. Possibly too ambiguous for wheat beer aficionados.
Pour slowly billowy fluffy-headed wheat beer or risk overt carbonation. Though lightweight and arid, crystal malt sweetness, clove-hopped spritz, dainty floral waltz, and modest vanilla ice cream finish rescue it from mediocrity.
Not necessarily your typical German-styled kristalweizen, lacking initial carbonated thrust, assertive banana backing, and sweet wheat wine-y nose. Never too strong and a tad flat, its roasted barley-wheat essence doused too quickly by watery crispness. Now brewed by Canada’s Big Rock.
Heavily-carbonated Brussels-laced German wheat with soft-hopped lemony banana essence, buttery yeast flow, sweet barley-corn backdrop, and murky malt liquor aspect. Unexpected mint-clove coercion adds to well-rounded distinctiveness.
Serene gold-hazed German-style wheat beer (later named Texas Wheat) augments soft mocha rim with dry rye enticement. Minor metallic astringency at diminished white wheat-floured finish displaces faint citric tartness and repressed banana-almond merger.
Wisconsin is now the fifth state brewing Spanish Peaks middling selection. This ‘American-styled clear wheat beer,’ quaffed in ’08, lacks specific character. Minor Saaz hop bittering and rinsed-out lemon sourness sidle cardboard-y butterscotch drear. Feigned banana-clove adjuncts whimper to bland carbolic finish.
Water-crisped banana-clove overlay gets summery lemon hop fizz. By dry finish, light grain convoy covers citric notes. Ultimately too mild for serious beer hounds.
