Left Hand’s Haystack Wheat is a solid part of a quality perennial lineup. This bottle-conditioned German wheat beer pours out a nice-sized head and has a slightly cloudy appearance. Perhaps the worst thing about this beer is that the slightly bitter aroma doesn’t give nose to the banana and clove notes that you experience in the taste, which comes across as being a little fickle. This medium-bodied quaff starts off nice and smooth and then disappears in the middle of the mouth. Just when you think that’s it for the taste, it reappears on the finish with a nice creamy feel and leaves you refreshed and satisfied.
