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.

Pretty decent beer. A-Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head that hangs around for a while Smell-Smells spicy and citrusy Taste-Spicy up front. CLove and coriander and a hint of citrus. MF-Not really worth noting. O-I thought it was a decent beer over all. Good flavor and it a nice beer to sip on a hot day.

Can. Pours a cloudy tan color with a fast diminishing head. Head fizzled to nothing actually. Aroma is kind of clove like. Watery with some sugars and malts Kind of flat. Light bodied. Not a very good hefe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A favorite daily drinker I have neglected tacking up for way too long. Poured from the can straight to the mason jar. Mason jar..??? Yup...favorite utensil for a daily drinker. A fun tasty and fresh weisse...And it’s portable too...clouded straw. The nose had a quick hit of banana, the big swallow after follows with a yeasty citrus wheat sweetness. Yeah.

ordybill (936) - 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 (3660) - 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 (1318) - 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.

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.
