COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Served in a half liter glass which is specifically designed to show off itís color and aroma. The aroma is a product of the strain of yeast used during fermentation which is unique to Hefe Weizen. It produces natural flavors which have been described as banana, clove, bubble gum, plastic, band aids Everyone tastes and smells something different! The heavy addition of wheat ࿒%) softens the flavor of the beer and produces a lot of haze. Although lemon is usually served with a filtered version of this beer, we gladly grant anyone the request of lemon with our Hefe Weizen, although we do not normally do so. Faultline Brewing serves itís Hefe Weizen year round.

Draught at the brewpub. Served with a comically huge lemon slice on the rim of the sample glass, despite the menu saying that "lemon served on request only." I guess that the bartender didnít get the memo on that one. The color is hazy gold and the head died as soon as the lemon juice got to it. I hate rating any beer with a serving addition, but this is the brewery, so thatís how they are presenting it. The aroma has expected weizen yeast character like banana and bubblegum , along with some lemon, though I took the fruit off as soon as I got the glass. The flavor has an obvious bubblegum fruity quality up front along with lots of ripe banana. Finishes tangy and lemony. Dry and well attenuated, though the body is a little too watery and lacks much wheat richness in the texture. Highly carbonated. Drinkable stuff for sure, but A little creamier texture would definitely help

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Had on tap. Served on the patio very hazy deep yellow with a nice head. Aroma was very citrusy. Had this with a lemon slice. First sip, the bananna and cloves over well you, but start to subside at mid glass. A little too sweet, but a real thrist quencer

Lots of esters in the hef. Plenty of flavors of bananas and cloves. Flavor was very sweet. Even my gf said it was too sweet for her. A decent hef but I wish it finished a bit dryer.
