This traditional Bavarian-style wheat beer is hazy gold in color, with a lively fruity finish that has hints of clove and banana. This is the beer that started the odyssey that led to the creation of Devils Backbone Brewing Company. During a ski trip to the Alps, DBBC founder Steve Crandall discovered and fell in love with Hefeweizen. Now we bring Hefeweizen to the Blue Ridge. 11.8 degrees plato, 13 IBU’s, 4.8% alcohol by volume.

7/18/2014. On tap at the brewery. Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Banana and clove aromas, grassy notes. By far my least desirable beer style and this one didn’t make me change my mind.

Pours a hazy golden with a decent ivory head. Wheaty aroma has a sweet lemon overtone. Wheaty flavor has yeasty and citrus notes, bold and refreshing. Lively, sassy texture has OK thickness and leaves a pleasant tingle behind.

dpjuart (1049) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Draft at Brewpub. Presented well in a .5 L weizen glass. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Stinky banana and clove nose. Standard hefe flavor with banana and clove and a slight herbal quality. Not bad.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured a hazy straw-yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was some wheat notes, banana and cloves. Flavor was nice banana notes, cloves and a solid wheat character to it. Highly enjoyable.

Emeister84 (867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Floral, perfume, cider, and honey aromas. Lightly hazy, pale gold, with a white head of good retention. Taste has a touch of sweetness, with fragrant, floral, clove, and honey flavors. Light-medium body, good carbonation, and a slightly honeyed finish.

ben4321 (3812) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12

Aroma: The nose is right on style, with wheat, lots of clove, and some banana
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy golden-white color with some white lace as well
Flavor: It has a fairly typical hefe taste as well, that much resembles the nose component-wise
Palate: This one has a lightly clean feel, with a soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one came off an on-style Hefe, but it isn’t really all that interesting or exciting. I sampled some really good beers at Devil’s Backbone, but this one wasn’t really a favorite for me.

Draft at brewpub. Pours cloudy yellow with a head of white thickness. not a ton on the nose. It also leaves a bit of lacing in the glass  It has some nice banana and clove notes plus the estery thing Finishes clean. Brewed very much to style but the excellence of execution is always appreciated

obguthr (3663) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2012
Overripe lemon, banana, and clove nose. Milky yellow, medium head. Tangy banana flavor, which lingers on the palate for a long time. Decidedly no cloves present on the palate. Very thin. Like the brewer’s Roseland Wheat, this was also thin and soapy, but this is quite a bit better. Either way, I’m not sure wheats are this brewer’s forte.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light sweet aroma with some wheaty notes. The flavor has a light honey sweetness, wheat, and some light fruity notes. Not bad.
