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.

Pours a dark gold with a thick head that slowly fades. Has a prominent yeasty flavor, with banana, cloves, and bubblegum taking hold. The flavor is the same as the aroma, with banana really taking hold. Has a sweet aftertaste as well. This is a much more traditional Hefeweizen than what most American brew, but it’s amazing!

Tasted at St. Louis Brewer’s Guild Heritage Fest 2014 in a cool nonic sampler glass. This was the biggest surprise of the night for me, coming from a brewery I had always overlooked but was one of the most delicious beers of all. It poured a cloudy yellow colour with sudsy white foam and lace. Grainy, grassy, faint black pepper and clove, STRONG banana esters the way I love Weizenbier. Smooth bready mouthfeel with a nice dry hoppy finish. Well-balanced and 100% true-to-style. Keep up the great work, guys!

Pours a dark gold. Has a fruity aroma to it, a bit of bubblegum. Has a light banana flavor to it. More subdued than most hefes. Needs more bubblegum & banana but definitely one I could drink at least 3 of in a session.

phaleslu (6608) - 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.

A hazy, light copper pour with a white head. It has a mildly sweet aroma filled with wheat. The light body has average carbonation and a slightly sweet taste. Pretty refreshing.

Bif (1502) - 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.

Pours a cloudy pale gold color with a finger off white head. Aroma of banana, honey, wheat, clove. Same of flavor with wheat and cereal too. Medium to light bodied. Really easy to drink, and very refreshing - always a dangerous combo when Uncle Rick is out on the town. Good German beer from St. Louis, though brewed in Wisonsin.

EtTuCthulhu (1077) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2013
The color of this beer is hazy golden with a medium white head, and the aroma is a mixture of grass hops, wheat, and earthy yeast. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, and the mouthfeel combines a medium body, soft carbonation, sour finish, and a slick texture. Overall, this beer is solid, but isn’t anything remarkable.

vyvvy (4025) - 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.
