COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

Nice yellow hazy hefe color. Lemony citrus flavors all over and yummy wheat and yeast mix together. A really solid hefeweizen

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Appearance: hazy, lemon-rind-yellow hue, with a towering, snow white head. Aroma: super fresh! Ahhh!!! Lemony, soft, luxurious, delightful! Luxurious mouthfeel, at first, until I realize that I’m drinking the foam. As for the actual beer, smooth, but complex, and delicious wheaty texture. Just enough grit and resistance to keep the tongue busy and happy. Though the body has plenty of substance, the overall nature of this brew is light and breezy. Citrus flavor continues through and is felt long through the satisfying finish. No lemon needed here, it’s plentiful in this beautiful brew itself ( and is also extant in the Thai shrimp pad thai that this blissful weizen is helpful to wash down).

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Typical Hefe apperance, cloudy golden body with a massive white head. Aroma of biscuits, malt, some clove like spices and some sourish citric notes with some light banana. Very well rounded taste and smooth mouthfeel. Light citric crispness leads to full malty and wheat body, light sweetness and banana near the end. Finishes up with a light crispness. Nice hefe.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
This heffe-weizen poured to a very large dominant head and was quite lively and bubbly. It has a hazy golden yellow coloring with a fair lace around the glass (although the head died quickly). The smell was kind of a fruity/citrus with a hint of banana. Quite aromatic. The taste was slightly sweet and had a dry finish ? with a little bite. Not very strong or distinctive flavor though. It is a drinkable beer, but I got bored quickly.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2004
Pours a foamy white head on a hazy golden body. Heavy yeasty and wheaty aroma, actually too heavy and cloying. Wheat, yeast and citrus flavor with obvious banana notes. Foamy mouthfull. A nice, easy and smooth weissbier.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2004
Draught, at Muggs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY.
Rustic unfiltered brown colour. Aroma is strong yet approachable with bubblegum and banana notes. Then comes the flavour, well the aroma doesn’t prepare you for the sharpness and astringency of this beer. Sour and sharp the flavour packs quite a punch.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours a nice cloudy unfiltered golden color. Has a nice fruity taste with a little bit of a spicy kick. Good refreshing brew.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Poured cloudy yellow with a rich head...smelled lemon (didn’t get any vanilla) and yeast...tasted like a Hefe...ditto Lumpy...

Bottle. Cloudy straw yellow color. Banana flavored. Stinks. Tastes like every other Hefe ever brewed. Blah.

Although I’ve been having a lot of hefeweizens lately and am starting to get a bit burnt out on the style, this is a very good one. All the elements of a good hefe are here: nice cloudiness and good banana/clove presence. Very easy to drink too and would make a good summer beverage.
