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.

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 (1328) - 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.

johnnyb10 (2) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2014 does not count
pale, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, light body, average carbonation, long finish, astringent. Had a strong berry taste, maybe raspberry, and a long-lasting sweet, astringent finish. Not bad at all, but I don’t know that I’d want to drink too many in a row. I expected it to be cloudier but it seemed pretty clear to me.
