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

Me likey. Had at Mammoth Blues & Brews and it went well with the sun. My pet monkey loves bananas, and he loved the Hefe too.

Out of the tank at mission brewery. 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. This is one of my most favorite hefe’s of all time, another excellent beer in the mission portfolio, thanks Ray!

On tap at Stone. Thanks to doubleo for buying a half pint for me. I love hefeweizens. Lots of banana in the aroma. Amber color. Sweetish. Medium body. Easy to drink. I hate to say it, but I want a lemon wedge in it. Oh the horror!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2011
This brew delivers a very fresh taste of a fine American wheat ale with a fat malty backbone and a beautiful deep golden color. A little light on the head but tasty none the less.

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.

nearbeer (3660) - 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.

Dacrza (502) - 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....

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 25, 2010
On tap at Downtown Johnny’s. pours clear bright gold with a medium white and rapidly disappearing head. Has a big banana aroma. Very nice flavor. Crisp and clean with a big banana ester taste. This is like drinking a banana popsicle. Outstanding hefe.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is hazy orange in appearance with a big white head and great lacing. Big banana, clove, light bubblegum, biscuity, somewhat citrusy, a touch orange peel, and straw in the aroma. Taste is big banana and bubblegum - light clove, coriander, a hint of vanilla, straw, and grass. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty tasty Hefe.
