COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Original Gravity: 13.5 Final Gravity: 4.2 pH: 4.4 Bitterness: 14 IBU Alcohol: 5.2

Clear gold pour with a white head that fades quickly. Aroma is cereal an a very faint spice. Taste is grains and very faint banana peel. Light body.

The best thing about this beer is the color and Naturtrüb cloudiness that is exemplar of this style. No head, adjunct filler Budweiser’y/ Miller Light’y nose carbonation and flavor. Really quite terrible from a bottle poured into a glass. This beer should have banana, clove, and even bubble gum notes to match the style. Should be malty sweet and crisp. Refreshing. You won’t find them in this beer, sadly. It was like cloudy Budweiser.

Very spicy beer, heavy clove, slight cinnamon and orange peel. First sampled in a flight, however drinking it at friendly spot in San Antonio at the recommendation of the bartender during a dip into the bar after a hearty breakfast on a cool morning really helped this beer shine. Would be good on cold nights around a fire, one or two at most is all i could tolerate after that the sweetness and flavor would be overbearing.

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.

dlihcsnatas (328) - Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2013
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.
