COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Berghoff Hefe Weizen is a smooth tasting, unfiltered Wheat Beer brewed in traditional Bavarian style, using both Two-Row Barley and Wheat Malt. The cloudy appearance of the Hefe-Weizen is caused by the Vitamin B-Complex carrying top fermented yeast in the finished product.

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Location: Draft at the Berghoff, 6/2/14

Aroma: The aroma is light and wheaty, banana and spice notes, pretty much a dull hefe nose
Appearance: Pours a light yellowish color, unclear, with a fizzy white head
Flavor: Flavor-wise this one is light and similar to the nose, okay, but leans pretty dull
Palate: The body is light, it is rather fizzy carbonation-wise, with an okay mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. It is on-style enough, but it comes off as fairly dull. Not a favorite of mine.

Strong showing from an otherwise forgetful meal...good beer to pair. Lots of character

355ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention eventually settling to some respectable lacing. Aroma is banana and cloves with some cereal grains and light hops. Taste is malty sweet with the banana and cloves and a citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and moderately carbonated. The best of the Berghoff brews that I have tried to date.

Bottled@Monks Café, Stockholm. Hazy golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is tomatosauce-pizza-spices as well as some wheat and caramel. Flavour is being very similar with some herbal notes. Probably rather old bottle (drank during summer 2010).

This is a Bavarian style wheat beer, unfiltered--and mistakenly served with a slice of lemon (no friggin’ fruit, please!)--and represents a pretty fair effort for a contract brewer. It’s certainly much better than it had been a few years before. Brewed only using pale barley and wheat malt, it’s pale straw in color and pretty full in body, with plenty of banana and clove overtones to be expected. The finish is balanced and clean, with only the lingering yeasty esters traditional to the style.

Sampled at Berghoff brewery on Adams St. downtown Chicago. This brew was okay. I’m not very fond of the Hafe Weizen as I feel they need more fruit and less grainy. Aroma was of grains, banana, grassy. The appearance is of a yellow haze. Frothy head, appearance was great! Overall, not a fan, but will have again if I see it on tap somewhere..

Draught from the restaurant. Cloudy, a little bit less acidic than I like my hefe’s. OK.

Pale yellow and slightly hazy. Abit of that sweet aroma, but mostly lacking. Taste is watered down lemonade. Citrus and sour. Bad aftertaste. Nicht gut.

Gift from my Wisconsin hook up. Thanks Jamie. Hazy golden color with mild citrus aroma followed by a more dominant wheat. A clove and banana taste thin in body but not bad.
