In German, “hefe” means yeast, “weizen” means wheat. This unfiltered German-style wheat beer is light bodied but full flavored. The strain of yeast used to ferment the beer adds unique flavors perceived as fruity (citrus or banana), cloves, and even bubble gum. O.G. 1046 I.B.U. 10

ben4321 (5697) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Location: Draft at Little Rock Brewpub, 3/6/12

Aroma: The aroma is wheat, lemon, clove, other spice and some yeast mostly
Appearance: The pour is rather hazy, looks like pulpless orange juice without any head or lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-plus sweet, with some spice, and a light acidic tartness
Palate: The body is rather light, with a tingly carbonation, and late tart/acidic feel
Overall Impression: This was an alright wheat beer, it has a decdent citrus presence and some light tartness. I didn’t get the banana presence that some of the employees told me to expect. Decent stuff, but unexciting.

seymour (1895) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Tasted on tap at Nashville brewpub. A nice hazy golden color with fluffy off-white head, somewhat lasting and even a little lace. Aromas of whole-wheat bread, citrus, pepper, clove, slight banana. Tastes of mild barley malt, mellow wheat, restrained bittering and flavor hops, more fruity yeast esters. Light-medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, lingering spicy finish, drier than expected. Tasty and true-to-style, but not a classic.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Sample at the Memphis brewpub. Clear gold with a small white head. A classic interpretation. Nice cloves and cool zest. Just a hint of hops with some soft bitterness. A simple and likable beer.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Draft at Nashville location. Small white head that mostly diminished, cloudy body, visible carbonation, no lacing, and a pale yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, bananas and citrus. Ditto for the flavor and thin tasting. The mouthfeel was smooth and this is a light bodied German Hefe. Easy to drink, but it lacked a lot of the characteristics that one comes to expect with this beer style. This one is easy to forget for me.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of clear colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a hazy uncarbonated yellow colored body. The mild aroma was bready and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of malt banana wheat and honey. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Tap at Boscos. Foggy light yellow with a thin white head. Banana and bubblegum aroma. Vanila and bana flavors dominate. Some lemon and clove sneak in. Good beer. A
