COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wheat is an important and typical flavor carrier in this type of beer. As with all other beers we also work at Rothaus Hefeweizen with a slightly higher original gravity of 12.5%.

In addition to the fine hop bitterness (13 bitter units), Rothaus Hefeweizen is typical of the variety, with another important flavor component, the yeast. In Hefeweizen the yeast is not mixed, but a top-fermenting yeast is used. Unlike our other beers, it comes with unfiltered wheat beer bottling.

Ingredients: water, wheat malt, barley malt, hops, hop extract, yeast.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2007
Dark yellow colored, big yellow head. Nice fruits, still surprisingly hopped bitter aroma. Mild banana also there. Medium bodied. Flavor is even better with strong banana and spices, yeast also with good weizen character and mild caramel. Complex brew.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Hazy light light golden color with a tall white head. Fairly mild aromas of bananas, wheat and just a hint of citrus. Flavors sweet and malty with just hints of bananas and yeast. Light acidity in the finish keeps this crisp and quenching.

thewolf (11289) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Riepen, Harrislee. Pours a quite hazy and very deep yellow. Head is medium and quite frothy. Aroma has a good fruity banana note with some slight apples and strawberries. Quite low carbonated, giving it a frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is a little tart, very spicy and a good dose of citric bitterness at the end. This is a case of rather bitter and sour hefe, more than a sweet one. That is not to say it is bad - very fresh.

asheft (2599) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
[bottle] Estery and sweet candy aroma, with a little banana, but mostly ripe or overripe strawberry. Quite orange and cloudy with a nice white cover that survives for quite a while. The flavour is a nice blend of clove and bubblegum and maybe banana that blend well, making not one of them really obvious. Sort of a nice bitter corriander rounds off the flavour nicely as well; a bit more bitter than most of this style, but it works. Medium body, high carbonation, clean finish.

You can’t see your hand through the glass! Nice fluffy head. Citrusy, tangy flavor - I prefer my Hefeweizens to have more of a banana taste.

Got this one in Stuttgart 07. Very opaque has nice aroma of apples and bannana, and flavour is satisfying, but a bit too sweet.

BB 23.05.07 Code 3064103      Pours an opaque-hazed golden/orange with a creamy white head that left soft lace trails. A touch of wet dog is the only detterence to the yeasty aroma of banana with lemon and light orange zest. Ripe banana reigns supreme in the flavor and comes back strong in the aftertaste while mild, tart lemons round out the fruitiness. Soft and fluffy in the mouth. A great yeast-experience.

Handsome hefeweizen pour, a hazy straw body with a tall foamy head. It smells like freshly sliced bananas with a touch of clove and a subdued suggestion of a lemon twist. This is very light and pillowy in the mouth. The flavor is full of ripe bananas, bubblegum, and a touch of lemon. It leaves the mouth feeling like you’ve just had a tasty fresh banana. Nice.
