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.

ordybill (824) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This is a crystal clear golden colored beer with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grass and alcohol. The taste is slightly bitter with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not a good beer.

BillKismet (3605) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Light hazy bronze tan color of ginger ale with an ok head. Zesty fresh wheat and milled grain nose with a tiptoes of phenols swirling about the bouquet--perhaps even with coriander, which contributes a bracing quality. Watery, easy wheat flavor with some sweet, watered down grain notes. A flowery finish. Interesting take on a hefeweizen--somewhat telegraphed by the deScription of "farmhouse ale" on the can.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Pour from a 12oz can. Cloudy diry yellow brew with big whit ehead that settles down to a frothy scrum. Aroma of banna and bubblegum. Taste is sweet with pronounced banana and bubblegum notes emerging in the finish. Enjoyable but a little too sweet, overly dominated by a few simple tastes and lacking complexity.

thornecb (5019) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours mostly clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Banana and bubblegum aromas. Soft with dry caramel and sourdough upfront turning to banana skin in the lasting finish.

Steverus0 (244) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Beautiful pour, cloudy from the can with foamy head and coming in at a pale straw. Nose is lightly fruity esters. Palate is lightly effervescent without much crispness, which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Very mild tartness with strong notes of grain and hints of citrus. Finished somewhat thickly cloying to the palate. Not bad and definitely a drinkable summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Nikki’s Liquors. Somewhat murky yellow pour with a white head. Unripe banana and bubblegum aroma and taste. Soft carbonation. Okay, not great.

Pours cloudy golden color with foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast, and cloves. Flavor is light malt, lemon, some tartness, yeasty spiciness and cloves. Doesn’t taste like a hefeweizen at all but taste Belgium.
