COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered “Bernstein Weizen” is brewed with 50% German wheat malt, and lots of dark specialty malts to lend this brew an amber hue and a slightly sweet malt profile. A slight touch of German Hallertauer hops are added for a light herbal and fruity aroma, and special hefeweizen yeast is pitched for classic banana and clove aromas.

Tap at the brewery. Pours an appealing murky orange- a bit deeper than your typical hefeweizen. The flavor was fairly mild- I didn’t pick up strong wheat. There was a bit of yeast flavor. Pretty good overall.

this is even more cloying and Chinese tasting than the West River Hef. somehow I am getting used to this odd flavor.

On tap at Dongping Rd as part of a tasting flight. Pours hazy Amber with a dissipating white head. Aroma of banana and caramel. Cream soda taste, sweet finish. A little odd but quite enjoyable.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - SEP 9, 2012
rather reddish hefeweizen. nice flowery aroma. i found this the most interesting brew at the shanghai brewery. notes of lemon zest, bread and pleasant sweet aftertaste. the watery palate was a bit of a let down.

Not a great hefewiezen. I looks nice, but the flavours just don’t work for me.

A bit more reddish than the typical hefeweizen. Bready and sweet, but not a spectacular hefeweizen. OKay.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2012
Draught @ Shanghai Brewery. Darker amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a small white head. Wheaty ripe fruit hinted aroma. Creamy medium palate. Finish is sweeter yeasty and creamy with some ripe fruity hints. Medium.
