There’s nothing better than Bayern’s unfiltered Hefeweizen. This Bavarian Hefeweizen ("hefe" means yeast and "weizen" refers to wheat), combines pure wheat flavor with Bayern’s own strain of yeast. Bayern’s Hefeweizen is hopped moderately with Hallertauer Perle from Germany, has an alcohol content of 5.4% Alcohol by Volume (13.1% Plato o.g.) and is made using malted wheat, pale and caramel malt. The hefeweizen beer style was invented in Bavaria and Bayern Brewing’s version is one of the very few that is actually brewed as it is in Bavaria by a Bavarian Brewmaster. So if you are interested in this style of beer, try this one first and see how the other ones compare to the original. St. Wilbur Weizen is brewed using the recipe of the old Brauerei zum Schiff brewery in Kaufbeuren, Germany, which is located 60 miles southwest of Munich and was established in 1540. Jürgen Knöller, the owner of Bayern Brewing, apprenticed in this brewery from 1978 to 1981 and brought this original recipe to Missoula in 1987. In 2002, Jürgen decided to rename Bayern’s Hefeweizen "St Wilbur Weizen" after his beloved St. Bernard, Wilbur, who had been adopted from the Humane Society. Sympathetic with the issues of these large breed dogs, Bayern now donates a portion of sales of this beer style and all affiliated merchandise to the Saint Bernard Rescue Foundation. To learn more about this, please read this edition of our Brewsletter. Whenever you think about Wilbur, just remember this: HE MAY BE A SAINT, BUT HE’S NO ANGEL!

Beerdrinker79 (2047) - Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours almost clear straw yellow with almost no head and below average lacing. The aroma is yeast, bananas and wheat. The flavor is actually not bad, it has all the trademarks of a good American hefe, full flavored, bananas and wheat dominate. Carbonation is medium low, but that wasn’t that big of a deal. After drinking half of the glass or so, I am tasting metallic flavors. Taste goes from a 6 to a 5 and overall goes from a 13 to a 12, but the bottle is expired so maybe a fresh one would not have those negative aspects.

Bottle served in a Weizen. Yellow-orange with a haze. Big white head. Good retention, minimal lacing. Sweet wheat aroma, effervescent yeast, and oranges. Medium-light body, creamy texture, and a dry finish. Good traditional hefeweizen.

On tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a thin beige head and a sour wheat aroma. There is a straightforward wheat flavor with a yeast chaser.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Pours hazy gold, foamy beige head fades. Aroma of citrus, banana. Taste is more bitter than most German Hef’s, just a little more American to me. Sharp flavor, short bitter finish, yeast flavors. Medium body, smooth carbonation.

Meh, pours cloudy marigold color. Virtues include a crisp, refreshing taste. Nice and smooth with a soft palate. Wouldn’t have thought I’d like this that much.

Bottle... Poured an unfiltered golden/orange with a thick white head. Wheat malts and honey, sweet esters on the nose. Big foamy textured palate, almost like having just the fluffiness of foam. Light on the hops, and fruity, wheat malts. Sweet, clove spices and a lemon-like citrus in the end.

Very tasty and refreshing. Pours a hazy gold color. Not hoppy at all, a little citrus maybe? Of course the wheat is there too. All in all, a thumbs up from me. Nice for a hot afternoon.
