COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Half Moon Hefe Weizen is an unfiltered beer, naturally cloudy from wheat proteins. The grain in Half Moon Hefe Weizen is half wheat and half barley. Leaving the beer unfiltered retains its character from brewer’s yeast & gives vitality to this invigorating ale. Smooth Hallertau hops provide a fantastic balance of subtle hop taste and aroma, giving you the perfect revitalizer to rejuvenate your day or night.

Pours a below average head, a pale-golden yellow. Slightly hazy. Great sweet nose, def. banana. This is wheaty but with that same sweetness. A little short of being ’crisp’ but still very drinkable. A decent offering.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Slightly hazy, dull gold with a short, white head. Lemon/Wheat aroma... Taste is tart, tangerine/lemon...soft... A slight acidic bite. Nothing special, but it has a pleasant taste and feel.

Bottle. Sour fruity spicy wheat aroma, and a little band-aid as it warmed. Hazy gold with a small white head. Sour citrusy wheat malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

Not terrible, but definitely unimpressive. Wheat and some light yeast. Very light. Some sweetness from the wheat. No spices or anything else. Watery finish. No body. Light pale lager aroma.

I was in SC last week visiting my brother and figured i try a beer brewed by Charleston Brewing Company while i was there. I chose their Halfmoon Hefe Weizen. The beer poured clear and golden with a small light head with minimal retention. The beer smelled of fruit and banana. The taste was nothing exciting. Very light and very fruity. Not much of anything going on. I didn’t taste much of any hops or malt. Overall a very unimpressive Hefe Weizen. I would not ever drink this again. 60/100

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle courtesy of durhambeer. Pours a hazy amber with a lasting white head. Smells of citrus, coriander, bananas, yogurt. Tastes of sweet citrus, wheat, coriander, clove, banana. Nice.

emacgee (4009) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours a bright hazy peach with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is sweet, some orange rind, a bit one dimensional in what it has, some yeast character. The flavor is sweet, orange rind, crisp, less yeast in the flavor, mild wheat, not super traditional tasting. Not bad just not standout, east to drink on.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2009
Pours a golden yellow - absolutely no head and no lacing what-so-ever. Aroma is slightly lemon - not much else. Taste is very weak lemon along with slight wheatiness. Not even close to one of the better Hefe Weizens I have had - usually a fan of this style - but this beer did not meet my expectations.

lb4lb (2530) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle from Gyle41386. Thanks man! Pours a yellowish orange color with a short lived fizzy white head. Smell is bubble gum, banana and a soft clove aroma. Taste is watery, slightly sweet and strongly wheaty. Standard wheat flavor with a thin yeast flavor and it finishes slightly sweet. Really, not offensive, but a bit watered down, and "cheap" tasting, somehow. A bit fizzy and medium to thin bodied.

Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle, pours a urine haze yellow with thin to no head. Aroma is sweet spice banana/rotten fruit. Flavor is typical wheat sweetness that is very watered down. almost no carbonation on the tounge. Small amount of sediment on the bottem. this one was just not that good.
