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.

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.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2007
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.

Hazy golden. Light yeasty aroma. Light in palate and flavor. Citrusy lemon flavor. Had a slight dirt taste. Not one of the better hefes I’ve tried.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
Very golden and cloudy with a huge, nice head. Both aroma and flavour signals a good German weiss. It has light sweetness, notes of wheat, fruit (banana) and no bitterness. It’s a nice weizen, perhaps a bit too sweet in the long run, and it might have more body IMO.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2007
Cloudy deep yellow colour with a frothy lastig white head. Wheaty sweet aroma with notes of yeast and banana. Wheaty, quite sweet and fruity flavor with a dry, sweet and light yeasty finish.

Bottle. Cloudy orange with beatutiful lasting off-white head. Yeasty aroma with scents of orange peel. Flavor is fresh and fruity with almost no bitterness. Fruity average lasting finish. Classic hefe (although not as yeasty as the most).

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Poured a hazy orange and murky with a thick white head. Smell was of citrus and hoppy aroma. Bitter metallic and spice flavor, very filling like most hefes.
