COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered traditional German weiss beer. Malty wheat bouquet brimming with clove and apple aromas. Wheat and barley balanced by imported German Tettnanger hops. The finish is smooth and refreshing.

A dense white head on a slightly hazy copper/gold body. Malty, spicy aroma with a hint of noble hops. Medium body and a lasting complex flavor. A solid malty base with notes of clove, apple, nuttiness and restrained banana from the breweryís exclusive yeast strain. Better than the German wheats because you can get it fresh, at the peak of flavor. Outstanding brew.

One of my favorites. It has the flavor of clove and the after eddects of banana. Very pleasant. Typical weiss beer, but very good. Smooth finish in your mouth. Great wheat beer.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2001
Really quite spectacular. Loads of clove, apple, and a bit of banana in the flavor. Very crisp. Appearance-wise, a beautiful golden color with a full head. Excellent wheat.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Sampled on draft at the HPWBC tasting room. A rather outstanding take on the style, pouring the usual golden color with a haziness and a decent initial head. Aroma was initially bananas and cloves, but the bananas resided and a wheatiness emerged before long. The flavor was quite excellent, only light bananas, gentle cloves, light yeast, and a touch of hops in the finish, perhaps the most drinkable hefeweizen Iíve ever had? A somewhat dry/bitter (although not overdone) mouthfeel/finish, quite nice. Nothing close to too sweet or cloying, this could be sessioned. Nice job by HPWBC! Grabbed a sixer to take w/ me. Re-rate from the six pack, I stand by my original rating, just such a pleasant beer and stateside example of a hefe. The phenolic / hoppy spicey flavor is refreshing, crisp, and delightful. There is also a touch of underlying wheat character that shows through gently as it warms.

Absolutely fabulous Hefeweizen, and the best domestic beer of NJ. Good balance with clove vs apple on the aroma and weaving like the soloists in Bachís Double Violin Concerto atop a cantus firmus of malt and a bit--just the right amount--of hops. Stellar; well done! (OT)

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Very cloudy orange yellowish pour in the glass. Full of distinct nose of nuts, flowers, resins, herbs and toast. Taste is a banana wheat. Body is a little on the light side. Rated 12/30/99 I should point out that this is one of the most inconsistent beers Iíve ever had. Iíve had batches of it that Iíd rate as low as 2.0. My rating above is the beer in itís heyday many years ago.

Very fruity esters with bananas and clove weighing heavy on the palate. Hazy, golden appearance with a low hopfeel. Good head retention. A great USA interpretation of a German Hefeweizen. Thanks for the tip VENOM.

My favorite wheatie. Aroma more to the clove side. Cloudy brew. Very malty and rich, more so than the competition. Unless you are in Germany, this is the freshest wheat beer around.
