COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing Bavarian Hefeweizen. Made with malted wheat, pale malt and the oldest yeast strain in the world. This traditional ale has bready, banana flavors and spicy clove aromas.

Draft: Strong garlic aroma, lemon also present. Cloudy golden, headless. Bready lemon, very light banana. Stale malt. Thin mouthfeel. A swing and a miss. The local water must not be ideal for weizen beers. Its the one style that is particularly weak in my area, much to my chagrin.

Banana, clove, and pear on the nose. Hazy, pale gold, with white head, low retention. Tastes moderately sweet, with a light tartness, and an even lighter bitterness. Light-medium bodied, fluffy carbonation, finishes dry and bready. Not a bad Bavarian-style wheat, but Im used to a bit more noble hop character coming through.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy straw-lemon color with a medium sized head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry wheat, dry citrus and a sweet finish. The taste is wheat, big citrus notes mild spice and mild herbal hops. Medium bodied.
