COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ahh, Weiss beer; is there anything more refreshing and indicative of Summer? As promised, here is the second installment of this incredible seasonal. Far and away, the most popular specialty we have ever released here at La Cumbre, our very traditional Bavarian-style Hefeweizen is brewed with 60% malted wheat and a very unique yeast strain resulting in a rush of banana and clove in the nose, and a big, lush, milkshake-like mouthfeel. While the alcohol is moderate, watch out, you’ll go through 3 of these faster than a passing monsoon rain.

Out of the can and on tap at the brewery tap room. Both incredibly good. Best Hefe I have personally ever have enjoyed. Poors clearer out of the can. A darker cloudy appearance from the tap. Both very smooth and refreshing as would would expect from a quality Hefe!! Enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473 mL can opened and shared with WillRunForBeer. Many thanks! To pint, it pours a hazy safety orange; no head, only bubbles on the top surface emerged. Aromas of cloves, allspice, marshmallow root, bitter orange, germinated wheat, and vanillin. Tastes the same with the addition mashed banana, red licorice candies, candle wax, and German yeast. Spicily alluring. Fun beer.

16oz can from trade. Pours orange gold with a offwhite head that dissipates quickly. Strong aroma of unripe banana, clove. Flavor follows nose, a bit mineral and a touch of orange in the finish. A solid hefe.

American hefe. Why can't we do it like ze Germans? Bubblegum on the nose, grassy gold and cloudy, light mouthfeel and a pleasant flavor, but there's just missing something. Franziskaner is king for me. It manages to be light yet full. This one just kind if lists it's way to a unmemorable finish. Slice a lemon and put me on a porch on a hot summer's day with a growler of this and you'll get no complaints from this guy, but you won't find me ordering this at a bar...ever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Comes a cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, and spice. Taste is citrus, banana, yeast, and spices. Nice.

On tap at the brewery, appearance is more kristallweizen than hefeweizen. The aroma and palate is all Jamaican Cake - beautifully-knitted flavors of bananas, sweet dates, and intense clove oil. Medium-bodied malt profile complements this yeast-forward style wonderfully well.

DiarmaidBHK (3165) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Draft at taproom. Pours yellow and cloudy with a white head that leaves some lacing. Big banana and bubble gum on the nose. Lots of banana on the tongue with a hint of the bubble gum. Finishes a little dry. Fantastic example of the style.

At the brew pub on draft a cloudy golden with a slight head aroma of cloves and orange tastes of banana rather sweet on the Palate it goes down very easy

Tap at the brewery. Murky golden pour with good lacing. Big banana esters in the nose with pear, yellow apple. Taste is a tad too buttery with some soap, yellow apple. Palate is nice. Butter doesn’t distract after awhile.
