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

This is a typical NA hefeweizen. Fruity and light but devoid of complexity or any sense of nuance.

Slipstream (2015) - USA - JUL 15, 2012
Growler from Whole Foods. Foamy gold-orange pour. A tangy, yeasty aroma that grows rich as it warms. A sweet, matly hefe with more flavor than most - a very solid release.

jgb9348 (4714) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a bit of a copper glow and a thin, almost non-existant off-white head. Aroma of grass, coriander seed, oranges, alcohol and a hint of metal. Medium-bodied; Strong wheat flavour at first then mellows out with some sour orange tastes, a hint of yeast, a little lemon and a light herbal flavour. Aftertaste shows a lot of wheat, a bit of sweetness, but mostly, sour and bitter lemon and curacao flavours. Overall, a decent hef, more on the ’relaxing’ and refreshing side of beers, but not horrible. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$3.30 sampled at home in Washington on 10-June-2012.

mpersinger (347) - , California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours hazy with brassy yellow hue and half-inch off-white froth. Aroma is balanced toward clove with hint of banana and wheat. Refreshing flavor built on wheat tang along with malt backbone, plus clove spiciness and pear notes from yeast. Moderate carbonation (could be higher) and slight residual sweetness.

JorisPPattyn (7888) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2012
Draught Small white head over golden beer with greenish shine. Sharp solvent nose, drying meat, estery, cloves. Cloves, sweet oranges, tad of mint in the finish. Low carbonation - in fact for the style utterly undercarbonated (somebody switched data with the Pils?). Wheatslickness, light body. Not convincing. Flavour is +/- right, but it presents itself lame.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2012
bottle at azwine 8/29/11. hazy yellow orange typical hefe colored... a minimal white head. the aroma is soapy, dusty... cardboard box kinda dusty, orange, umami/savory wheat notes, earthy and a little spicy. the smell is distinctly of cheerios from when i was a kid...and the smell of the box they came in. the flavor is the same...ish. there is a little banana thing going on at the end, notes of lemon pledge/artificial perfume and a spiciness on the finish. also, as it warms there is something in there which tastes like the aftertaste when i eat salmon skin...weird. not terrible all together, just not great...and odd. it is flat and rather dead on the tongue... i want this style to be crisp and pop. it should be lively and this falls short. 6/3/6/2/12

adnielsen (9026) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle in AZ. Pours a hazy, golden orange appearance with a very lively, white head. Spicy clove, lemon peel citrusy, light banana, apple/pear, wheat malty aroma. Fairly spicy, banana/citrus fruity, somewhat sharp wheat malty flavor with a bubbly, highly carbonated mouth feel. Not bad but the carbonation seems really high to me.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: frontal tartness, flat single aroma set up. Bit funky. 4-
Appearance: clear golden look with medium light white top. 3-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium light bodied. Creamy with slight wild funk feel. I don’t think that was intended but worked fine. As German hefe this is fail as beer over all I don’t mind. My first funky Kristal.

Ron (2505) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pours a hazy golden hue typical of hefeweizen brews. The nose is that of cloves and bananas. The flavor has the same clove and banana as the nose. The mouthfeel is light with a slight amount of tangyness at the finish. A decent Hefe but not up there with the Germans.

Cloudy golden amber color with a thin off white head. Wheat, spice, and a hint of fruit. Nice body, finish is full but not crisp.
