COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once reserved for Bavarian royalty for its light sparkling quality, Hefeweizen is considerably more democratic today. In fact, at Gordon Biersch we've brewed a special batch of our Hefeweizen to serve our guests throughout July and August! Hundreds of years ago in Germany, wheat beers were considered "breakfast" or "after church" beers, a testament to their light refreshing flavor and a tradition of drinking them on weekend afternoon. We invite you to enjoy our Hefeweizen any day of the week this summer along with our special summer menu.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Sharp, green off- the tree banana and sugary bubblegum. Hazy yellow with a frothy head. Strong sweet , spicy banana and clove taste, maybe a touch too sweet if I have to name a drawback. Crisp and refreshing mid weight body.

OzarkElmo (300) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On Tap Dec. 12 Pours a deep cloudy orange, maybe the darkest Hefe I’ve had. Good on the nose, and flavorful with both fruit and spices throughout. A good hefe, especially at LAX. PROST!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Sampled on draft at the Virginia Beach brewpub this beer poured a yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing - pretty clear for being unfiltered. The flavor was phenol, clove and a hint of banana. The flavor was phenol, clove, a hint of banana and a touch medicinal. Medium length clove and banana finish. Light body. Disappointing.
