COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning Hefeweizen is one of the breweries most popular selections. Unlike the lemon-laden wheat beers that flood market today, Mission Hefeweizen is a true example of a classic Bavarian Hefeweizen - exhibiting a wonderful bouquet of clove, banana, pear, among other aromas and flavors which make this beer a refreshing and full flavored brew. Make no mistake – there is no fruit in this beer. The complex and flavorful character of our Hefeweizen is achieved by the authentic Bavarian yeast strain employed in its production. 15 IBU

Dacrza (484) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Date tasted: July 6, 2013... Glassware: weizen glass... Occasion: mucho food o at Jim and Maria’s annual 4th (6th) of July party....Appearance: thick, foamy head that recedes to a single finger of white cloud; body is sunset orange with thick chunks of sediment sailing up and down its coast--a yeasty depot at the glass’s bottom... Aroma: banana and clove, as the bottle promises; yeasts are soft, less doughy than expected... Palate: medium-bodied, teethy impact on the mouth; a pleasant presence that doesn’t dominate--acidic, too... Taste: VERY subtly in its profile; the banana acquiesces and the clove is a gentle tickle at the throat--no problems, but not outstanding... Overall: smooth and useful, this hefe is indeed NOT a lemon-suds extravaganza, as its label warns its peers have become; its heft and subtlety make adding a lemon possible but negotiable; can’t see this on par with any real German offering, but the price was right....

Ed5388 (1970) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with almost no head. Typical hefewiezen aroma of banana, wheat, and yeast. Taste is much the same. Wheat, bananas, yeast, and hints of citrus.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
The aroma is not exactly as I expected but not bad it does have a malty/wheaty thing with some coriander and banana. There is also a salty cracker with cheese in it. The taste is like the aroma. The appearance is cloudy gold with a thin head. The palate is smooth. Overall its rather dry and oddly salty for the style but not necessarily bad.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2013
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a cloudy yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, banana and light clove. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, banana and clove with a smooth dry lingering banana finish.

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
12 oz bottle. A ultra thin head develops on top of a murky golden body before quickly fading completely away. Not the most appealing appearance. The aroma is what you’d expect from a standard hefe: banana, clove, yeast, some wheat. The flavor, again, consists of banana and cloves. It definitely also has a juicy fruit bubblegum thing going on, with yeast, and spices towards the back end. This really lacks the softness you get from the better Hefeweizens. It’s fizzy in the mouth; the carbonation is too lively. Certainly not a bad beer but there’s just nothing here to make me want to get it again.

nearbeer (3584) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pint on tap. Cloudy golden with a small lasting head. Nose of spicy, sour banana, toasted wheat bread and a touch of resin. Taste is the same great mix. Near-medium body is well balanced, with a dryish finish and a low-average carbonation level. Excellent American example of the style, using the true Bavarian Hefe yeast.

krumbum (500) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Smells like questionable yeast. Nice color minimal head and little white things? Taste is heavy upfront and heavy till it fades not my favorite. Palate is ok. Overall not my favorite beer by any stretch.

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Sweet yeasty aroma. Stoked for this. Golden body and quickly vanished white head. Tastes fruity and tangy with the strong wheat aftertaste. Beautiful beer. I shall purchase more.

Not all that strong aroma wise. Head is very airy. This beer is okay. It has a decent German hefe flavor, just it is pretty light. Only average.
