COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic German styled unfiltered wheat beer. Vitzen is the phonetic spelling for the German "Weizen", which means wheat beer. "Hefe", pronounced Hay fa, means with yeast and refers to the cloudy appearance of the unfiltered beer. Angel City Vitzen uses the Weinstephan wheat beer yeast which gives the beer itís spicy flavor. Michael points out that this beer illustrates how much yeast can influence the flavor and aroma of beer and anyone who has been to Germany can attest to itís authenticity.

Beer: Whatís up with this brewery? Ratings too low Beers are good. Donít like the Vitzen game-play, need much more beer awareness for that a label, I was confused; good news: beer is very good!

Pale yellow, slight haze, no head. Some yeast esters slight sourness in nose, not much else. Flavor is just as bland. Nothing going on at all.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 25, 2009
On tap at Spring Street Smokehouse in L.A. Cloudy orange with a creamy off-white head, fading to a thick ring before long. Lots of bananas in the nose with some wheat and minimal lemon. The flavor again had loads of bananas with a tinge of spice. Minimal bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation. OK at best, not much balance of the esters and phenols.

Bottle at a ucla game. Aroma of sweet malt and banana with a bit of spice. Color was a darkish gold. Flavor was similar to the aroma with some ok wheat notes. A decent, but forgettable beer.

Bottle from becmo. Slightly cloudy amber pour. Sweet mlat, bubble gum, banana, and wheat. Not very interesting. The mouthfeel is too spritzy, I prefer hefe to have a soft creamier mouthfeel.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 A $3.49 bomber. Pours with a very minimal, quick to fade white head over a murky yellow body. Aroma of vanilla, bubblegum, caramel, banana, maraschino cherry, bitter hops and wheat. Taste is wheat, and mild hop flavors, with a plastic note and a ton of yeast based esters. Medium viscosity, with kind of sharp bubbles.

22 oz. Pours a cloudy pale golden with average head. aAoma is banana,clove and wheat. Taste is about the same with mild citrus hops to back it up. Its not bad. At 2.99 for a bomber its worth a try. perfect for a hot summer day.
