Our Bavarian Weizen is a light and refreshing German style wheat beer. Its cloudy appearance and spicy flavor can be attributed to the Old World yeast used to make it.
Note: Formerly Einfach Weizen.

12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-Pours a murky orange with a decent white head. Aroma of banana, clove, coriander, and wheat. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not too shabby for a Hefe.

On tap at the brewery. Pale orange and hazy with a white head. Aroma of wheat malts, clove, spices, herbs, cinnamon and banana. Similar flavor, mild bready malt sweetness and a light fruitiness. Average body, crisp with carbonation and a refreshing finish.

TheHOFF43 (1674) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is as expected: banana, clove, spices. Flavor is similar to aroma but stronger, better. Not bad.

BeerandBlues2 (9097) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear and effervescent gold with a large, fizzy white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is banana, spicy and earthy wheat and biscuit malt, and light pear esters with no hop character. Flavor is lightly tart earthy and spicy wheat malt, banana and pear esters, light clove notes, faint earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium-light body and heavy carbonation.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Hazy dirty golden pour with a white head. Aroma of ripe banana, mild clove. Fuller crisp palate and the flavors come out more than in the aroma. Solid beer.

12 fl oz bottle. From Iowa. Thanks John M.
Hazy yellow golden colour with an average sized white head. Mild yeast and citrus in the aroma. The flavour is wheat, mild yeast, citrus and some spices. I guess this is somewhere between Hefeweizen and Wheat Ale. Not bad.
