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.

I love the wheaty bread dough nose and taste, a nice chill haze makes it quite appealing, problem is the short availability. Nice malts and a fair hopped beer that is quite pleasing to the palate.

One of the better authentic HWs in the US that I've found (at the LV brewpub). This is classically cloudy orange-yellow with a terrific head. Banana character is prominent, but this is a nice light interpretation. Recommended. I even steer my "non-beer" friends to this as a good alternative. Very good.

On tap, Oakland Airport. Iím normally not a hefe fan, but this one was fantastic. Seems under-rated. The aroma was strong and rich, yeasty. I declined the yellow fruit, but still got the aroma of lemons.

Im not your traditional Hefe lover but this one is good. Little spice, smell and taste of bananna. Good overall not filtered brew.

One of the best main-stream hefs in the US. When I fly through OAK, I never miss it.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Opaque yellowish white with a short-lasting white head. Smells like banana, tropical fruits and yeast. Tastes like yeast, sweetbread, tropical fruits, bananas, cloves. Very sweet, even through the finish. Medium to strong bodied. Excellent light weizen, great for warmer temperatures.

Kicks ass. Add a slice a lemon, and one of the best.

On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy pale orangish yellowish color with a thick creamy white head, decent retention. Very fragrant aroma of bananas, also some yeast/bread and bubblegum. Very good taste and very refreshing, especially when itís cold. Full flavored of bananas and bubblegum. Creamy and smooth on the palate. As it warms, it actually loses a bit of flavor, so drink it when itís cold. I think this is one of the best hefes Iíve had.
