COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic Bavarian-style wheat beer. The German yeast we use imparts subtle banana and clove flavors that are very refreshing. Brewed with half wheat malt and half Pilsen malt. A cloudy golden-orange hue, Hefeweizen is known world-wide as the quintessential warm-weather beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Very murky yellow/orange appearance - looked a little like pineapple juice. Good spicy clove aroma with some estery banana notes. Less in the flavour where it becomes more citric and the mouthfeel is a touch light, tending towards watery.

On tap at the brewpub in July 2009. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a slight white head and not too much lacing. Nose brings some fairly strong clove and spice notes. A moderate amount of banana. The taste is some slight wheat as well as clove, banana, and hints of bubblegum. Moderate body with good carbonation. Was a nice, drinkable brew after a long summer day.

On tap at South Street; poured a cloudy straw color with not much head by the time it got to me. Nose was a bit floral, with not as much banana and spice as I like. Flavor was just ok; not as pronounced as it could have been. Some banana, spice and fruit. Not a great example of the style, but not real bad either.

Draft. Pours a hazy, dirty yellow with a creamy, off white head. Yeast, biscuit, and lemon in the nose. Medium low carbonation with a light mouthfeel. Citrus, yeast, a little dough, and a slight metallic note on the palate. Medium short finish with a lingering bitterness. Kind of watery. Left great lacing though.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 28, 2008
THOUGHTS: It was hard to truly rate this one because the server brought it out with a lemon in it. TECHNICAL: On tap at Sought Street Brewery. Was a medium brownish orange with a small head that mostly diminished leaving no lacing. The aroma was slight banana, then some wheat and yeast but sort of flat. The flavor was very slat banana wheat and a little citrus, but they didn’t seem to blend well together. No balance at all. The light body was very watery with soft carbonation and a dry finish.
