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.

Aurelius (4359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2006 Phenolic banana flavored. Mostly clear, generic gold. Odd tanginess to the finish. On tap, David Copperfield’s, NYC. Rerate On tap at the brewery: This was one of the best hefe’s that I’ve ever had. Apricot, hazy orange-gold with a big head. Lots of esters, lots of character. Moderately tangy, nice bittering.

Hazy golden body with big off-white foam. Aroma is medium sweet, clove and wheat. Taste is medium banana sweet up front, turning wheat and clove mid-body, before finishing clove/light lemon tart. Light body, fairly crisp, with moderately high carbonation. Delicious Hefe.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 An excellent representation of the German Wheat style, including the overemphasis on fizziness. Had to stir the glass just to get some of the fizz out. I'm pleased to report this wheat beer is not in the American Wheat vein at all, as it's yeasty and full of clove flavors. Well done.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Refreshingly enough, not an "American Wheat". Not particularly spicy or fruity, but has a nice toastiness to it. Decent cloviness, quite refreshing.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Wheaty and half full of clove; light banana. Finish was somewhat hoppy and full of dirt and banana taffy at the back of the tongue.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
A bit astringent in aroma. Wheaty, fruity, banana, bubblegum, cloves. Nice cloudy gold, darker amber. Big foamy white head that laces. Low carb and medium watery body. Good German wheat beer taste but watery. Nice banana clove notes, wheaty. Clean. Light bitter, sweet after. Refreshing.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Opaque gold with a persistent head. A lot of clove, with some tanginess in back, perhaps from hops. Quite good.

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2002
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!
