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.

12 oz can purchased in Binghamton, NY. Pours to a hazy, bright golden color, with a tall, rocky head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is classic southern Bavarian hefeweizen, with aromas of clove, banana, and pear. The palate is tart, with good wheat malt flavors, paired with estery fruity flavors of banana and pear. This beer finishes with more good quenching, wheat malt flavor, then ends with a spicy clove flavor that lingers. Well done example of Bavarian hefeweizen. Very tasty, a beer I could drink lots of, and one that would be the perfect match to German fare.

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.

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

Social wines. Light, crisp. Good for a afternoon beer in the spring. Mix between a hefferwisien and sasion.

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.

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.
