COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in 1602 Weissbier could only be brewed by ducal privilege. It was Munich’s first Hefe Weizen. Hofbräuhaus enjoyed this exclusive right for nearly 200 years, thus holding a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria.

But even without a monopoly, Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is a really special kind of beer. Characterized by its sparkling rich foam and distinguished by its unforgettable refreshing and fruity taste. It is brewed according to an ancient tradition and offers an alcoholic content of approximately 5.1% by volume. Savor the pure, refreshing enjoyment! FOR OVER 400 YEARS A CLASSIC FAVORITE! Type: Top-fermented Wheat Beer

on tap @ Hofbrauhaus Newport --- Cloudy pale gold with a steady 1/2" head, full sheet of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that grows quite a bit as it passes through, adding toffee, clove, and maybe a little banana late in the palate, then just a bit of floral bittering to keep it under control. A traditional, but well-conceived hefe. Easy to drink.

Draft: Cloudy yellow with a short white head. Banana, clove, yeast, wheat aroma. Taste is tangy, crisp, orange-banana, wheat. Nice, not overdone...good solid combination of scent and flavor. Excellent.

Draft. Orange, banana, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Murky golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange-banana, clove, and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. A very nice beer - happy to have a solid Hefeweizen I can get anytime I’m having withdrawals.

Super hazy golden/orange pour with a white head. Big aromas of banana and clove. Taste is big wheat character with lots of banana and clove coming through nicely. This was an absolutely delicious brew. Great example of what a good hefe should be!

DrSilverworm (5902) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
500ml on tap at Newport Hofbrauhaus. Beauitful totally hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head, leaves good ropes and bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, light to moderate carbonation. A good, more full mouthfeel, and a lightly dry finish. Good balance of wheat, banana, and light clove flavors. Hint of vanilla. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Tasty, well-done hefeweizen.

Draft to taster at Hofbrauhaus. This is known as "Hefe Weizen" on the menu now. Looks good for the style; a hazy gold with white lacing. Smells solid; banana and clove. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as pleasant or balanced. Average on the palate. Not bad.

Chudwick (1967) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 29, 2012
Half liter draft - pours like light honey with rich white head and pretty lacing. Nose is banana. Flavor adds the malty wheat qualities. Sweet with a hint of bitterness. I can’t wait for November so I can have their weizenbock for my birthday! I haven’t had a good Hefeweizen in a while and this might make me look for more.
