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.

TheBeerLover (1026) - DC Metro Area, USA - AUG 22, 2008
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.

Can. Orange, banana, clove, wheat malt and straw aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with large white head. Moderately sweet banana, clove, wheat malt, and mildly bitter straw flavor. Nice body. Very solid Hefeweizen.

Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with medium foaming white head that rises and falls quickly, leaving some lacing. Lovely aroma of esters, mild lemon, cloves and peach. Initial taste does not deliver much of that, but grass and coriander assert themselves along with minor banana note. Aside from mild tartness, there doesn’t seem to be much happening. That changes as it warms and some of the notes from the nose make their way to the palate, and the mouthfeel develops the gentle frothiness promised by the first surge of the head. The mixed profile, a bit heffeweis, a bit saison, means the taste isn’t strongly any one thing. But the good nose and feel make this a very nice choice.

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.

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 (3764) - 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 (1361) - 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.
