COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sarah Billick, a friend of Lisa’s, spent a year taking classes and interning at the Isar Brau Brew Pub in Munich. She brought back the recipe for their Wheat Beer, and we made it here at the brewery. The Isarweizen will vary from year to year, but usually has some clove, nutmeg, banana, and tutti-frutti aromas, with the clove and nutmeg taking the lead. A little acidity balances with the sweetness of the beer’s fruit flavors. Crisp and refreshing - just the thing for summer. Available in late May (1.012 BG, 4.8%, 15 IBU, 5 SRM)

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAR 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 Cloudy bronze pour with an ample sand colored head. Classic nose of banana, cinnamon, and clove; but there is also a pie-like apple and pear character that marries very well with the toasty, crusty wheat malt. The yeast sings here, and lends a very nice rustic quality to the lightly sweet flavor. Carbonation is smooth and creamy. Medium bodied, a bit slick, with extremely low bitterness in the finish. Really nice, classic hefe here. The strong, silent type. Standing solid and unassuming in the background, watching over some of its higher-rated American brothers as they dance around in their ’imperialized’ costumes.

Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Poured the entire bomber into a 500ml Aventinus glass. It’s cloudy copper with a big foamy off-white head. Nose is pear, banana, the syrup they put in canned peaches, and a light spicy clove. Num. Taste is classic hefe--big banana notes, bold wheat, and a sweet yeastiness that mingles with some spicy clove. Dries out a bit on the finish with a mineral quality, then comes back strong with a sweet fruity long finish and a rustic grain note. Big and fluffy body with ample carbonation and a touch of slickness. Everything I’ve had from this brewery had been phenomenal, and this is no exception. Thanks to Michael for turning me on to them!

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 multiple bottles. cloudy chestnut brown with a beige head. strong fruity / waxy esters in the nose: banana and clove, sure, but also some fruit cocktail / pear notes, light toast / biscuit pale malt and semi-sweet cream / yogurt yeast. exceptionally smooth, silky and creamy; medium bodied; low bitterness, medium-low acid; hefty and round and quaffable without feeling too big for it’s sweetness. might could say it approaches dunkelweizen territory. Edit: 2013 bottles are mushroom-y and strangely watery. Probably a 3.4-3.6 for me.

A great refreshing Hefewweizen. We drank alot of the Heater Allen and Ayinger Hefeweizens last summer and would be hard pressed to pick the best one. Perfect beer for after work and heading to the golf course on a hot summer day.

Really enjoyed this one! Everything a standard brewed to style German hefe should be. Light, refreshing, bananay, clovey, and mildly hopped through the finish. Crisp, clean, and delicious!
