COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bavarian Style Wheat Ale

In the spirit of the German purity law, this beer is brewed using only malt, hops, yeast and water. Please enjoy this beer WITHOUT a fruit garnish, as it is brewed specifically to rely its own beautiful balance of flavors.

An above average hefe. Not as complex or spicy as I like...light banana, bit of cloves, a bit of bubblegum. Pout is q bright golden straw yellow with light carbonation and a steady puffed up beige head.

Personally I think hefes shouldn’t be filtered, it not only AIDS in the appearance but also the texture across one’s palate. Pours a relatively small head atop a very clear and lightly carbonated gold body. Nose of mild banana and tonic water. Rather thin taste - some of the tropical esters make an appearance but mostly it’s standard. Okay.

650ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some cereal grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a spicy pepper note and a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a respectable brew for the style, with good taste and well balanced.

Finally trying this award winning Hefe. 12oz can pours with an opaque copper to gold body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice bouquet of estery banana and spicy cloves with a dash of apple and pear fruity esters in the background. The taste begins with a brief soft palate that quickly climbs into spicy cloves and a sweet blend of banana and bubble gum. To midway a pleasing soft yeasty note is joined by thin smooth sweet apples and pears leading into a thin ribbon of cracker sort of wheated malts into the finish. Pretty solid with plenty of balance and interest.

marcus (7549) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a thick foamy off-white head and a toffee and banana aroma. There is a light-bodied wheat flavor with a hint of banana ester. Not very fruity.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is of definite banana and wet dough. Flavor is wheat malt and some more bread dough. Kinda loses the yeast aspects in the flavor. Finishes like just a plane old wheat beer rather than a hefe. Meh beer here.

Draft. Good looking beer. Wheat, and the usual suspects are there, but omg the creamed corn! Creamed corn city. I passed this off to someone else that didn’t seem to notice/care.

Hazed yellow. White head. Very typical wheat here. Sweet, yeasty, bready. Solid for sure but nothing special.

AdiBeer (2084) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Aroma: banana, wheat, caramel and bread malts. Appearance: hazy gold, small, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: grain, wheat malts continue, light yeast. Overall: OK Hefeweizen, yet struggles to stand out. Pint at Escape, San Diego.
