COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A south German style of wheat beer that is unfiltered and has a cloudy appearance. Poured into a traditional Weizen glass, and having a thick foamy head, the Bavarian Wheat can be one exciting beer.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sample poured from a 12 oz. bottle at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a nice, dull, cloudy gold color with a finger-thick white head. Looks unfiltered to me. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, sweet malts, honey, wheat, clove, and a grassy, earthy note that overwhelms the other hefeweizen notes just a bit. This smooths out in the flavor, which brings banana, sweet malts, honey, clove, dough, wheat, and cereal. Medium-bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Really nice German hefeweizen and a good sipper.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
12 oz. bottle. This pours an orange brown with no head in the tulip glass. The nose is yeast, cloves, and cloves and could be more genuine. The flavor could use some work, too. Powdery dried figs, bananas, and tangerines. Spices that are almost Fall but don’t get there.A sourness permeates that puckers and clashes with the sweetness. Some beers just should not be put into production and this is one of them.

vyvvy (3607) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pour hazy yellow / orange with a nice sized white head. The aroma has bubblegum, candied banana, cloves and what seems like plastic or band aids. Medium body that’s a bit slick and it has frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with a fake-ish banana flavor, brown sugar, cloves and a fully wheatiness. The finish is sweet and plasticy. A fair hefe, but it is better than most in the lower end price range.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Sent to me by Strykzone in a trade. Poured a dingy orange with little head. Nose of cloves and yeast. Light body. Acrid mouthfeel. Flavor is "off" with a weird sourness that overwhelms everything else. Banana finally shows in finish. This bottle may well have been mishandled after leaving the brewer as other ratings show this to be quite acceptable.

Pour is a cloudy gold with a large white head. Aroma is ok with some banana and clove in there. Flavor is a little bit of a let down. Some cloves and a bit of lemon show up but nothing to carry this one over to the good side. Average at best.

(tap) slightly orange gold with white head. Aroma of yeast and wheat malt. Flavor is slightly sweet wheat malt, some banana and apricot.

jandd1983 (2085) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2011
It poured a dark gold color with a white head. The aroma was of bananas, cloves and some bubblegum. The taste was similar with a prominent yeast flavor, some banana, cloves, and the bubblegum flavor.

wxman (1340) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Pours a semi-cloudy deep golden with a substantial fluffy white head that diminishes somewhat, but sticks around. Not really cloudy enough to carry the "unfiltered" description, at least compared to a Bavarian hefe-weizen. Aroma is sweet malt and clove. Taste primarily clove and banana along with the sweet liquor of the malts. Not much hoppiness at all. A pretty good rendition of the style, at least compared to most American wheat ales, but not exceptional. Refreshing and well balanced, though.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head that lasted throughtout the beer. Aroma was clove, spices, and banana. Flavor was grass, some citrus and yeast. Floateres throughout. Grainy. Pretty average all the way.

Bif (1295) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head that fades to just a bit of lacing. Aroma is primarily of fresh grain with traces of fruit and sweetness. Fresh grain taste with a mild trace of banana and citrus. Has a touch of bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nice beer for the style. Much better than I expected. A solid kick back and relax beer.
