COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest style Hefeweizen is light-bodied, pale amber in color, fruity and refreshing, with a malty wheat character. The flavor is light and crisp with a touch of malt sweetness. Whistling Pig Wheat is unfiltered, with the classic cloudy appearance which characterizes the best Hefeweizens brewed in the Great Pacific Northwest. Whistle Pigs are marmots, small furry critters who live in the high country all around Leavenworth, WA, with especially high concentrations in nearby Whistling Pig Meadow.

Nooooooope. This found it’s way into my german hefeweizen tasting. Tastes like burnt grains and sour wood mixed with a bud light.

Can. Pour is orangy hinted light hazy brown. No head. Rather rude up front for a hefe, seems to have a few wheat ale attributes floating around in there. Yes, does not hide the alky well, seems much more than 6%. Could use some carbonation, comes across almost flat like lager left over night. What ever, needs some manners and civility. Could not be in the same styles as Erdinger Weissbier, Schneider Weisse Original, Švyturys White - Baltas Hefeweizen or East End Monkey Boy. Well, near the finish, I do get some watery banana in there. Yea, sure can use some co2 sizzle.

Too clear for a Hefe. Decent banana aroma. Taste was just sweet and slightly rubbery. Pass.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Pours a hazy lighter golden color with white head. Wheat, yeast, and some light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with wheat and light fruit.

Sirmixsomewhat (196) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
The beer pours with almost no head and, unless I’m sick and don’t know it, no aroma. That said, it’s smooth and easy to take big sips of, but it’s not special and it’s not memorable. A good beer to have a few of, but not worth the price I paid here in Pennsylvania for it and pretty weak overall.

mjg74 (2984) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Can from Capital Market. Hazy golden brown in color. Lightly sweet and fruity nose. Maybe a hint of yeast character, if that. Bready and a little fruity up front. A little sweetness to go along with a touch of yeast. Sippable beer. Not a really good German hefe.

Draft pint pour at Razzals. Two pints actually. I don’t think this beer deserves the hate it gets. I find this to be very American however in the hefe world. Doesn’t have the heavy yeast or banana flavor, but the beer still tastes good. I say if it tastes good, it is good. Pours a thick looking peach color with a patchy head and lacing. Nice lemon aroma. Light beer with a ton of wheat and lemon flavor. I’ve heard of this being served with lemon, but it’s got plenty without. Very refreshing. I say, nicely done.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is showing some light banana and clove spiciness with a soft wheat and yeast undertone. The flavor is a little less estery and spicy than I prefer for the style, it’s much heavier on the malt and wheat flavors instead of being derived from the yeast. It’s a little heavy and clingy. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish. Not a great Hefe, a little too heavy and flabby

Not a great example of a german hefe. the citrus and malt kinda overpower the yeast, which does show itself as a banana-like aroma and flavor. body is overcarbonated as well. meh...
