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.

12oz can. Rating #228. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Light sour citrus aroma, wheat. More wheat and light lemon, not getting any German Hefe characteristics though. (2877)

The beer pours decently with a nice hazy golden straw color, a nice white head, and some lacing on the glass. The beer smells decently with a nice yeasty, whet scent up front followed by a lemon zest smell on the back end. The tastes is average as the has a mild lemon zest taste up front with a wheat finish. The mouthfeel is average as the beer is decently carbonated, light bodied, and leaves you mild bitter. Overall, it was an okay farmhouse ale, nothing special though.

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.
