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

mpersinger (354) - , 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.

Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like orange, bubblegum, wheat, dry grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like wheat, orange, bubblegum, candy, and light banana.

Keg at the taproom in SD, 12/11/14. Hazed golden orange topped with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is yeasty, vanilla, light banana, clove, straw. Taste comprises banana, light spice, straw, vanilla, pear drop. pretty harsh and bitter. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Not great, rather astringent and bitter.

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
A hazed golden weizen with a thin white head. In aroma, light sweet fruity malt with banana and light citrus. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light citrus, light Brett, almost veering on Gueuze... Old bottle from potsdam NY, 2 years old... Past date but interesting results.

"They seem to make an oddly high amount of german hefes in SoCal and this is one of em. All the usual suspects (banana, clove, bubble gum) in a yeasty refreshing package."

rosshudgens (8) - - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
Strong banana on the nose and hits you immediately with the flavors as well. Pours a nice off orange color. Not a ton of complexity but a decent beer with decent flavor profile.

jehoesefat (299) - Poway, California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Very sweet, fruity aroma, I’m picking up banana. Pours cloudy orange with no head. Taste is sweet, hardly any bitterness or alcohol flavor.

Guerde (1184) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2014
(bottle from Sparky, thanks!) Pours a pretty hazy gold color with a medium white head. Little lacing, but not much. Aroma is very close to being spot-on, and even though the description is knocking the lemon-laden pedestrian hefes in the market, a little bit of malicious lemon zest and pulp worms its way into the aroma for this beer as well. Other more welcome scents include, banana chip, bread dough, clove, and vanilla. Maybe some bubblegum too. The aroma is getting somewhat close to being as bombastic as Dancing Man Wheat, but in the end it lacks the firepower to push the olfactory into overdrive. Flavor also holds a bit of that maligned lemon, but other flavors include bartlett pear (to be more specific, it’s one of those bartletts you eat out of impatience that are about two days from achieving full ripeness where the skin still offers that subtle tartness), faint banana (really only towards the far finish does it flash), wheat bread, and a touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is not very creamy but the carb is pretty much on. Overall a solid hefe that’s a bit underrated in my opinion.

chickenflea (348) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pour rises up into large fizzy head, but rapidly dissipates - almost no lace. Initially clear but murky after adding yeast from bottom of bottle. Nose of clove, over-ripe apples, mildly peppery phenols - very promising. Carbonation is a bit fizzy and rough, not creamy. It’s a bit unsettling. Flavor is yeasty and a bit quite sour with a bit of spiciness. Finish is dry with white pepper and lime. I like the beer. It is very refreshing. But when Mission Brewery says on the label that the beer is a "German-style wheat beer", I would have to say that Mission did not quite hit the mark for the hefeweizen (at least not how it is interpreted at this time.)
