COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing's Hefeweizen. In Germany, "weizen" means "wheat." As the name implies this wheat beer is left unfiltered which leaves some yeast in suspension. This cloudy wheat beer has flavors of banana and cloves which come from a particular yeast we use. In Bavaria it's known as a "breakfast beer" because it's light, cleansing and digestable. Hefeweizen is served in a special, tall glass with a slice of lemon to add a tarty zing to the microbrew.

on tap-pours a white head with yellow color. Aroma is grain. Taste is grain, some hops. Tasted like a standard lager/ale. OK carbonation.

Plastic sample cup at the brewery. Dark yellow to light orange color. Can see through the beer and vsisible carbonation. Nothing too discernable in the aroma. Present though, a humble earthy hefe. Taste I get banana but in a different manner than usual. I get a sweet aspect of banana only. A pretty full bodied hefe. But again not much too discernable in the taste either. Finishes with just a hint of bitterness. Average mouthfeel.

Tap at the brewery. Not many bad things to say about the beer, although it is not your "typical" hefeweizen. There is your malt and it is sweet with the slight presence of citrus (have not tried it with the lemon wedge). No banana flavor which I love, I am so sick of the banana craze.

When I was at the brewery I spoke to Alan (the head brewer). They for the first time just tried a bit of a different recipe. It’s not what I expected from a hefe-weizen. It’s somewhat earthy, doesn’t have the refreshing aspect that hefe-weizens usually do. Has a grain bread heartyness, more hoppyness than hefe-weizens usually do, somewhat almondy dryness, different, not bad.

Tap at the brewery - quite full-bodied for a hefe - big time wheat malt presence in this one, and some light citrus and mild sweetness - quite hoppy for the style, making it seem like a hefe/pale ale hybrid - pretty nice.

I got this one at State Line in Elkton, MD and it had a sweet wheat flavor and finish along with a thin head. It seemed pretty standard for a hefe. There was nothing here that seemed memorable.

Yes! This is my first beer to be the first rating. Very good overall german weizen. Nice gold/yellow color with nice haze to it. Good head retentiona dn lacing. Aroma is dominated by a banana estery fruitiness, and is backed by lots of wheat malt. Very smooth and refreshing. I tend to prefer banana weizens over the clove weizens. Great beer.
