COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional Hefeweizen from Germany usually taste like cardboard because by the time you drink them, they’re not fresh anymore. Chuck brews Heinnieweisse with Bavarian yeast and a 67% wheat grist approximately 5000 miles closer to your mouth than Germany giving it a rich, fully fresh palate. Pour it and see the wheat cloudiness, smell the notes of estery aroma. At 4.9 % abv you’ll taste the effervescent, sweet yet tart freshness that no farty old German can boast. And what does an Alien have to do with any of this? Ever notice how a hop looks like an Alien’s head? Look again.

Gift from Maxbier, poured into a glass. Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is of malt, grain, earth, spice. Taste similar. I'm betting this beer would be better during the summer months and not a cold winter day.

Not a super amazing hefeweizen but it’s a little underrated nonetheless. Pours golden with fizzy initial head. Some bubblegum, some banana. Light sweet finish. Can.

Can from a pic 6. Pretty nice effort, I must say. This one is heavy on the cloves in the nose and especially the palate. Finishes very dry.

Maxbier (535) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Hazy golden pour from can, big white head. Aroma of mild yeast, wheat, and lemons. Taste is oddly lemon/citrus tart and sweet. Quite a bit of bready sourdough yeasty flavors. Not a bad brew; but- you better like the sourness of a Berliner Weise, the yeastiness of a farmhouse, and the sweetness of a Riesling or you will not enjoy this one.

Cloudy yellow, white head that’s gone in an instant. Nose is clove and banana. Tastes almost sour, sweet.

Ok so this is why there is not a craft beer bubble. If there was this brewery would pop. Sounds mean... Because it is but the truth hurts. Aroma is ginger and lemon. Smells super artificial. Like bud light almost. Looks light yellow like pee color. Little head. Taste is ginger. Lemon. Yeast. Bread. Like French baguette. Maybe Like a lemon torte. Like a sourness in there. Lemon. All the lemon. Palate is thin. Light. Watery. Finish is dry. Which is a good thing. Drinkable for the style its just garbage. Tastes artificial. Tastes like lots of adjuncts (which if it isn’t adjuncts there are some lessons that could be applied to other beers to pull out lemon and ginger notes like in a saison or something.) Pass

Aromas of banana, cereal, subtle tart rotten apple. Pale, hazy yellow-straw, with a lasting white head. Pretty dry, grainy. Light bodied.

Bulk_Carrier (2443) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a yellow color with a slight transparency about it, uh no normal cloudiness of a hefe...hmmm... we’ll okay. Luckily, the head makes up for the color as there’s a good soft fluffy white foamy two and a half fingers worth. The smell was grainy and rustic with an aroma of corn sweetened cereal and an added funk not normal to hefeweizens. The taste was mostly an off funky and tart sweet with the odd sweet corn/cereal thing again. On the palate, this one sat fairly light for the most part, but because of that flavoring, I didn’t find this one too sessionable. Overall, bad sixer or just bad beer, I really don’t see myself having this again.

From can. Spicy herbal aroma and a little wheat. Hazy yellow amber with thin head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation, fizzy. Starts with mild citrus, wheat tang, and light sweet character. Dull Hefe with light tart finish and after. Note of corn.

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Slight wheat aroma, with a touch of butter. Pours a light hazy straw with a thin quickly fading white head. Light wheat flavor, with a slightly tart finish. Very light bodied and easy drinking. Middle of the road beer, nothing exceptional about it.
