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.

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.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
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 (3565) - 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.

haukur (1285) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 10, 2006
Really really nice aroma, extremely aromatic. Huge sence of citrus and bananas, maybe oranges and something sugarish. Standard hefe looks, but a bit paler than the avarage. Taste is rather complex, spicy finish, extremely refreshing, clovy. A superb example of the style, well done Rothaus!!!
