Summer is in full swing. Ask any German to recommend a summer beer and most will say Weizen. Hefe means yeast and weizen means wheat. Hefeweizen is cloudy wheat beer because its yeast is unfiltered. Brewster's uses a special yeast from the Weinhenstephan Brewery in Munich which gives the beer its characteristic notes of clove and banana. On this side of the Atlantic we serve wheat beer with a lemon wedge. Lemon or no lemon, it's up to you!

    Yet a other review that I’m trying to decipher of a 3 week old napkin and it looks like I tried to write left handed because this is worse than chicken scratch what the hell was I doing. Brew looks like your standard Hefe cloudy beige with a fluffy white cap, unfortunately my cap was very thin and didn’t last longer than a minute but it did produce so ok lacing. Aroma was over the top banana chips with possibly some banana bread, to sweet for my liking. Beer feels a touch thin for me and has too much stinging carbonation that is burning my throat. Flavor seems watery with over the top banana sweetness, but had a good wheaty malt presence, the finish is all bread. This like all Brewster beers is very drinkable but not the great.

    Golden wheat with a hint of orange tossed in there for colour. Super cloudy and OK head, but excellent lacing. Seems a bit too thick?? They served this with a lemon wedge attached to my glass like a wart, so I uncerimoniously tossed it onto the table. The aroma has some over the top hopiness that I did not want there, early obvious impression of cardboard. Sharp bananas that is just too much (more of a dried banana chiip smell), slight anise. It is similar to alot of North American hefe's. I'm more of a fan of the Euro style. Taste is almost all wheat, which is great considering the overwhelming aroma of bananas. Wheat is dusty and not the of the highest quality but still good mainly due to the huge ammount. The banana sweetness is there but is very wear, at least on this most recent pint. Slightly sour and tart as well. The sourness hangs over most sips too much but the excessive wheat has won me over. Mouthfeel is acceptable even with the overcarbonation (it isn't to bad) and sourness. The wheat does keep it feeling somewhat dry early on and then finishes with more dry wheat. So although the aroma sort of sucks, the large wheat presance saves this brew.

    On tap at Brewster’s Foothills. This was voted People's Choice at 2006 Beerfest. Color is very pale yellow, cloudy (as expected), with a bright white head. The aroma is clean and fresh, wheat and lemon citrus, banana and clove. Thankfully there was no lemon floating in my glass (it is optional). Taste is simple, clean and crisp. Yeasty, fruity banana, some spice, and just enough malt to keep everything in balance, no one overpowering flavor. Body is thinner and drier, very thirst quenching. A very nice summer seasonal.
