Here at PBC we produce a ‘Classic Hefe-Weizen’ in the true Bavarian style. A light, cloudy, golden hue and thick frothy, foamy head tells of a very special yeast strain used to produce this bier. In true German style we use a specific yeast strain, delbruckii. While fermenting, the yeast itself is responsible for the flavors of banana & clove which makes this one of the most unique biers of the world. Peter has been brewing this recipe for many years and has collected more than a half of a dozen medals, do not pass up the experience of this lovely libation.

From a flight on tap. Unfiltered wheat. Bit cloying in the nose and taste. Perhaps a bit over spiced. This was pretty average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy deep golden with a thick, appropriate creamy white head. Unfortunately it smells as if wheat just farted--a bit sulphuric, and hard to detect much of anything else. Flavor was medium bodied and basic for the (americanized) style--wheat, toast, a touch too much bitterness, dry, more wheat and toast crust, and just a hint of clove on the finish. Drinkable for sure, and the aroma goes away once youre used to it. Buuuut....

BTBF. Pours a clear yellow orange color. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, banana and wheat. Flavor is a bit tart, yeast, clove and fruit.

Bottle. Hazy golden color, medium fluffy white head. Aroma of light citrus and subtle banana. Taste is fruity and light. Light body. A bit plain but very drinkable.

Great Hefe-Weizen. Aroma is fairly noticed upon serving, mostly malt. Gold, yet a little bit cloudy and taste is just as expected, mild foretaste and kind of a dry sensation after it. Pretty well balanced beer.

Clear light yellow with small fast disappearing head. Thought it odd to be so clear but noticed there was allot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle that appears to be stuck there. Aroma of cloves and some hay. Taste is dominated by a clove flavor with some hints at lemon but other than that not really picking much else out here. Good but not outstanding.

Decent Hefeweizen. It has a good amount of taste on the front end, but finishes dry and slightly watery. Plenty of carbonation, but I got very little head. If you like hefeweizen, I would give it a go.

Bottle thanks to Chels. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is clove, banana, and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with sweet fruit, clove, and nice lingering dry finish. Good.

Banana esters, wheat malt, lemon zest. Decent aroma. Ugly appearance, as the head disappears faster than sorority girls when the punch runs out. Bland, watery taste leaves much to be desired. Body needs work too.

An awful example of the style. But hey, it's drinkable!
