COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hefeweizen is a Bavarian term for cloudy wheat beer. Wheat is our most popular grain, so it isn’t surprising that it has been used to produce beers for many hundreds of years. Redoak’s Hefeweizen is brewed using a large proportion of wheat malt, subtle hopping and a classic Bavarian strain of wheat yeast that gives this beer its distinct flavour profile with hints of banana and cloves.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a tall white head. Aroma is wheaty with some banana and cloves. Taste is also wheaty with some banana and cloves. OK

ALLOVATE (2383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2011
Tasting from Jan’ 2009.
Very subtle lemon zest and lemon/lime cordial nose, a little hit of clove and dank liquor. Appearance has merit, though it is very pale. Lots of furious carbonation at work amid its sandy yellow body. A rocky snow-white cap, two inches thick, crowns it off. A little sour and quite tangy in the mouth. Pronounced wheat flavour, a little vanilla and lemon acidity down the sides towards a wad of clove-like and smoky phenols in the back. It is pasty in mouthfeel and has a touch of chlorine in the swallow which is thankfully short, crisp. Featherweight in body and with high fizz, almost biting on the tongue. Just a little too much of what I don’t want in a wheat beer here. Hmmm! (33cL, No date stamp, The Beer Store Morley)

Bottle @ home

Pours a clear amber, which is odd since it should be cloudy, with a weak white head. The aroma is not as strong as one might like, but is mostly of fruit and wheat. The flavour is the saving grace of this beer, being refreshing and balanced with a bitter hint. The mouthfeel is slightly fizzy and has a thin/medium body.

The biggest shame about this beer is that it could have been so much better than it is.

Tap. Organic heffeweizen. Not bad, not great. Aroma is wheat, and citrus. Flavour is sweet, with light bitterness, and average duration. Oily in the palate, with a thin-medium body. Yellow colour, with a fizzy white head that doesn’t last.

hawthorne00 (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle, says organic on the label. Hazy gold, white head that didn’t last. Subdued esters - not that banana-y. Taste is citrusy and very spicy. Astringent and fizzy mouthfeel. Would be a good cheese beer.

This was called Organic Hefeweizen so I suppose its the same thing. Didn’t ahve the aroma profile I was expecting from a Hefe style wheat beer. Lacked the banana, clove ester aromas I’ve had from true German Hefes. Palate was thin and a bit watery. On a night when we tasted maybe a dozen beers this was one of the lowlights. A little dissapointing.

Bottle - Fruity aroma with a metalic tinge. Almost lemony acidic flavour, this was way too sour for my tastes. Not what I was expecting.
