COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our hefeweizen is of the classic Bavarian variety. Made with 70% wheat, lightly hopped with German Hallertauer, itís refreshing and slightly dry with the beguiling banana and clove notes that give away the provenance of the true weizen yeast we use. This is a German-style wheat beer the way it should be--no lemon needed to make up for inadequacy.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 On draught at Beer 3/3/13 and then at Occidental. A full-bodied hefeweizen. Cloudy, bubbly golden color. Aroma of what and clove. Taste of banana bread and cloves. Finishes very smooth; no need for a lemon. One of my favorite hefeweizens.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pint glass poured from a growler from Growl Movement in S.Salem. $10 a growler. Pours a hazy ,bright yellow with a nice sized thick creamy white head. Nice fresh banana,spice and bread aromas. Taste similar to aroma with a bit of summer fruit thrown in. Kinda comes up short in the palate..starts of fine but gets a wee bit watery by the end. But overall for a 80-90 degree day its fine stuff.

Cloudy tan. Aroma is malty and full of banana sweetness. Sweet with light banana and a nice bit of acidity. Touch of yeasty character late.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of banana and bubblegum. Flavour brings out clove, banana, bubblegum and slight spice. Really full-bodied and flavourful. Great hef.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Muddy deep blond color with generous head. Feet smell. Smooth mouthfeel, sweetish Hefeweizen, with some banana, some cardboard, but too little spicy character, and rather short final.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at Podnahís Pit BBQ - Pours hazy golden with a big fluffy white head. Nose is lots of sweet wheat, a little banana, and subtle spicing. Melon, tropical fruit, and a good deal of bready yeast. Not like most of the hefeís Iíve had--more full and less sweet. Same taste, real fruit- and wheat-forward, with a mineral finish. Thick and slick body. I liked it, but a more mineral, more banana-ey hefe is my thing.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAY 16, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Completely opaque apricot yellow. Head is creamy, white, and tight-bead. Tell-tale hefe, all the way; with an amazingly fresh and wonderfully wholesome yeast character. Medium bodied, full mouthfeel, great carb, and a mellow finish that has just a hint of tartness to balance out all that yeasty wheat-malt goodness. Supremely full-flavored, hearty without being heavy, quenching without being thin. Fresh-baked honey-biscuit with banana/pear preserves and spices. Maybe I was just pleasantly surprised by this, but it really hit the spot for me. Beats New Glarus, tops Heater Allen, and more than holds up to classic old-school examples. Perhaps this was just an amazing batch or something because Iíve had other trusted palates tell me they were not quite so enamored with it. Looking forward to trying it again, comparing it side-by-side with some of the others I typically enjoy, and seeing if this score holds up for me. Currently my favorite wheat-treat.
