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.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is wheaty and soapwatery - and so is the flavor. A poor hefeweizen.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Typical - not so pleasant - greyish orange appearance with a surprisingly small head. Good, fruity esters and a nice, dry freshness with the standard - almost - absence of bitterness. Above average Hefe. 091202

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2010
Draught@White Horse Parsons Green, London. Hazy orange colour, small creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast, fruits and some slight herbal notes. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balanced. Served a bit too cold, but turned out really nice as it warmed up a bit.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy mustard yellow. with lively head. Rich banana aroma. Fresh and light bodied, perhaps the mouthfeel is a bit thin/short. Dry banana finish.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
Event in Walldorf, free bottle
Cloudy blond color; fake egg-white creamy head. Light fruity aroma, very light spices, not bad. Soft mouthfeel, too simple flavor, light wheat, the spice and fruits are kinda lost; the absence of bitterness doesn’t help. Not interesting.

harrisoni (14106) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle at Utopias, Ashford, thanks to Phil. Hazy pale gold, hint of green. Thick lasting off white head. Decent aroma. Good esters. Banana. Some cereal banana and more cereal in mouth it’s a little light on character and may be some sweetness and maybe too banana. Finish again is fairly light. Bit more lager than wheat beer. Drinkable enough but fairly simple. Maybe the rather over carbonation put me off. Bit I do like a hefe. Simple and nothing wrong with it.
