Schell’s Hefeweizen is made with 60% wheat malts and 40% barley malt. We use an authentic wheat beer yeast culture, which gives the beer a fruity ale character dominated by a citrus-like tartness. A slice of lemon is traditionally served with this type of wheat beer.
Ingredients: 60% Wheat and 40% Pale malts, domestic Cascade, and Mt. Hood hops.

Attractive cloudy yellow-gold with tall sudsy head. Aroma is fruity with some spice and funk. Taste is wheaty, yeasty, spicy, sweet, fruity and even some slight sour. Light banana and clove. Creamy mouthfeel. Light but has substance. Easy drinking. I love German Hefs in the middle of summer and this may be the best I’ve had. Surly the freshest I’ve had. Close to as good as it gets for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy straw yellow golden color with white head. Bananas, cloves, wheat, and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some yeast.

12 oz bottle generously given to my by my friend Derek. 092812 038809 stamped on the bottle. The pour is a lightly hazed yellow golden with a one inch white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is grain, light lemon citrus, and a hint of earthiness. Generally, faint nose. The taste is wheat grain, sweet banana fruit, light spice clove and an earthy mineral in the aftertaste. The flavor picks up considerably from the nose. The palate is medium bodied, nice un-filtered mouth feel, and the dry mineral finish. Easy drinking, decent enough Hefe. Thanks for putting this in my care package, Derek.

This was a decent hefe. The aroma was very nice. Strong thick banana with just a hint of light malt. Pour was a little disappointing. Light, clear macro-lager gold with a one finger white head. Looked like a Budweiser. Taste was surprisingly good. Nice banana and light malt flavors. The finish is a little quick, but this is a nice American made hefeweizen. Not as good as a Franziskaner or Ayinger, but good intro to the style.

12 bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aromas of banana, clove, wheat. Flavors of banana, clove, sweet malts, and wheat. Nice thick american hefe. I actually found this to be quite tasty.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Straight from the bottle. Aroma is sweet wheat and some clove. Taste is sweet with a touch of spice. Wheat, clove, banana fruitiness, and a nice tartness. Body is pretty light, and hella easy to drink. A unique offering that isn’t as banana forward was many american hefeweizens.

Lemon zest in the aroma and a rather clear gold-yellow in appearance. The flavor is of bananas and yeast. A relatively subtle hefeweizen, not near the best but still pretty good.
