12/4/11 Troegs Dreamweaver Wheat

So last night I sat down for supper with a burger, some fries and some Troegs Dreamweaver Wheat (available at Brewer's Outlet in Pottsville). This was my favorite Troegs so far. It was at a balmy 43 degrees. The head was average at 2 1/2" with an off white fizzy appearance and excellent head lacing. The head dissipated slowly and the body had a hazy clarity and a gold color. It had a citrus smell and a taste that was almost exactly like birch beer. The flavor was light and it had a super short finish. It left my mouth with a somewhat dry feel and it hit my tongue in the middle. The body lacing was excellent and I would consider it one of the better beers I have had. I would rate it an A for the different taste that was easy to drink and a very appealing flavor. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.

Long toasty days, cool breezy nights and a splash of magic provide the inspiration for the Troegs brothers’ dreamiest  creation—Dreamweaver Wheat.

Spicy, peppery, clove taste with a slight hint of bananas.  When serving DreamWeaver pour 3/4 of the beer into a wheat glass, rouse the yeast at the bottom of the bottle and pour the remainder into the glass for big frothy head.
