COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Oakes (15256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2006
Clear dull gold colour, though there is a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Light aroma of apples and pears plus a hint of wheat and vague phenols. The body has some zippy carbo, is fairly heavy but yet not sweet. It seems to have quite a bit of hoppy bitterness for the style. A slight lemony, bubblegummy note is the main feature. Dry finish. Not a bad drinker overall, despite not hitting any particular marks.

bhensonb (13823) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Aroma of wheat backed by a mild yeasty spice. Brassy color with a white head that was impressive. Starts with spice, wheat and arguably a small bit of banana. Not quite medium bodied, but the carbonation and the spice have a pleasant impact. Nice finish that has the feel of banana without that much of the flavor. Great label too.

Bottle poured a cloudy tarnished gold with a lasting creamy off white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, light banana and a hint of spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast and light fruittiness with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle best before date of October ’05. Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of yeast, light wheat, and if I really push some banana in the background. Tastes of wheat, light lemons, light oranges, light bananas and light spices (get the trend - everything on the lighter side).

marcus (8894) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
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.

PorterPounder (7111) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Portland, Or - John’s Marketplace - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow-orange with a nice sticky snow white head. Aroma reminds me of buttered popcorn - odd. Flavor has a faint trace of bananas, some corn notes, a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Visited this little brewery back in ’97 - seemed much better then.
