COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nit si explosive for a wheat. Copper orange color with a skimpy head floating on top. Smell of oranges and cereal with hints of caramel. Mild citrus and yeast flavors. Not bad.

Didn’t like it at all - but I’m not a fan of wheat beers.

This is one of the best beers Penn Brewery offers. I’m not a huge fan of wheats, but this is an outstanding example of the classic German style. The banana and clove flavors in this brew are heavenly!

This German Wheat is probably the best I call to mind having... It’s priced nicely, brewed locally and never a surprise... Been through a case or two and even poured a few at their brewery..

I love this beer! It is as good, or in most cases, better than the German wheats. This could be the best wheat beer in the world. Yum!!

This is one of my all time favorite wheat beers. There’s something spicy almost peppery in the aroma that most weiss beers are lacking. Very well done.

Leave the Weizens to the Germans to brew.

a very nice hefe-weiss. bottle conditioned and has a golden hazy colour. aroma of cloves and taste of bananas, cloves and cardamon with some nice citrusy flavours. one of the better American hefe-weiss beers.

This one is a bit lighter in body and character than many beers of the same style.
