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.

Droptank (79) - Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Now I love Hefe’s but I think I may have gotten this out of a dirty tap or something. Lackluster carbonation, no head, almost seemed like it was left out in the open, then put on draft. Chalk it up to a bad experience, I will try again when I come across it. If it is better I will most certainly re-rate.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a hint of a gold hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of clove and sweet banana with a wheat backbone. Flavor has lots of clove as well with banana and wheat backing.

Poured from a bottle. Hefeweizen was the reason I started drinking beer. This reminded me why. terrific head, frothy and white. Lemon aroma, tart finish.

Transfer from BA review on 12-28-13- Served on tap in a pilsner glass Appearance – The beer is served a hazy yellow-straw color with a thick and billowy white head of three finger height. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is quite heavy of wheat and yeast. Along with these smells are aromas of coriander and clove as well as a little bit of a lemon and orange smells. Some sweet aroma, other then the citrus, are there as well with notes of bubblegum and some caramel. Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready and slightly grainy wheat flavor. Along with these tastes there is also flavors of orange and lemon right from the start. As the flavors advance, a yeasty and spicy flavor come to the tongue; with the spice mostly of clove and coriander, as would have been expected from the nose. Shortly following these tastes, a light banana comes to the tongue with the graininess becoming almost entirely subdued. The mix of resulting flavors takes the taste to its end where a rather smooth Hefe flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is on the lighter and slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher to average side. Both are quite appropriate for the wheat, yeast, and spice flavors of the brew and make a very easy drinking Hefeweizen; just as a Hefe of 5.5 % abv should be. Overall – A rather good Hefeweizen overall. Very easy drinking with a nice blend of flavors.

Sweet-smelling hefe that doesn't suck. A standard wheat, but a decent flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
