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.

BeerViking (2313) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Tap at GB in Broomfield, hazy gold, hints of banana and melon on the nose, turning to spice and bread on the palate. A little fruit returning in the finish. A bit thin maybe for a Hefe.

Let’s hear it for airport beers. There are certainly many worse out there. This hefe was a bit on the darker golden side for the style, and a bit maltier than many. Felt heavy instead of refreshing. Some banana and clove, but a bit of a sharp wheat and slight pepper vibe. Not bad, but I liked the pilsner much better.
