COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Thunderweizen is brewed in the style of a traditional German Hefeweizen: lots of wheat, vigorous fermentation, and completely unfiltered for a full, refreshing flavor that perfectly compliments San Diego’s perpetual good weather. Despite the hints of banana, citrus, clove, and other spices, we do not add additives to our beer - that impressive flavor is naturally produced.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Rerate; had this the second time at San Diego Brewing Co. Liked it just a bit more; upped from 3.5 to 3.7(On tap at Stone; new to this brewery. Flavor and aroma were both solid, probably above average for the style. Elements of banana, yeast, clove and citrus. Good palate; nice and easy drinking)

On tap at Stone. Slightly hazy yellow color, aroma of tobacco and banana, sweet malty banana flavor and a yeasty belgian character in the finish.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2007
A clovey aroma on top of a cloudy yellowish orange beer. Also slightly fruity. Flavor is clove, sweet bannana, and a little citrus. Drinkable and thirst quenching. Pleasant.

Bartzilla (532) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 23, 2007
On tap @ Hamilton’s. A pretty solid rendition of the classic thick, sludgy, cloudy hefe. Strong hints of banana and cloves that goes down really smooth. I was pretty faded when I drank this, but it was good enough to leave more than just a vague recollection with me. I’d drink this again.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 11, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Pours with a slightly cloudy, yellow body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s sweet yet slighlty sour with notes of banana and clove as well as a touch of citrus. A very nice hefeweizen. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

On Tap at The Wit’s End in San Diego, CA. A very smotth Hefeweizen with a nice lemony finish. Not the best of its type of every had, but it is very good and quite drinkable I would definetly have it again.
