Authentic wheat beer, brewed in the Southern German tradition, won the Silver Medal in 1997 and the Gold Medal at the 2000 in GABF.. Penn Weizen is top-fermented, cask-conditioned, and very effervescent with a slight hint of tangy clove flavor.

cazort (555) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2014
A relatively light, clean hefeweizen, very well-executed. Moderate banana aroma, without being too estery, a few hints of spice. I thought this was among the best examples of an American brewery’s attempt at emulating the hefeweizen style. Not the most complex beer, but smooth and easy drinking, and very enjoyable.

Bottle @ home via trade with weihenweizen. Pours a hazy/cloudy yellow orange appearance with a spritzy white head that doesn’t have the best retention. Tons of spices, banana bread, lots of clove, somewhat herbal effervescent aroma that is quite nice. Slightly sweet wheat, very chewy herbal, tangy spicy, clove, nutmeg flavor. Very nice American-made Hefeweizen.
