COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This coarse filtered wheat ale is fermented with a German yeast culture for a refreshingly light spiciness and hints of citrus fruit. A cloudy appearance and an immense creamy head are characteristic of this lightly hopped Bavarian brew.

A good solid Hefeweizen to enjoy at the Sprecher Pub, totally stylistically correct, but not excpetional. Like it on tap out on the patio, but not something I would get elsewhere.

Had this on tap at Germanfest in Milwaukee. Excellent! Banana an clove are balanced perfectly. It has a very refreshing lemon/citrus flavor. What a great beer to drink down by the lakefront.

Seems like more of a Witbier than a Hefe to me. Coriander spice is much stronger than the citrus notes. Overall it’s OK.

16 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 8/16/2012. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ripe banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, clove, wheat, honey, bread, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of ripe banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, clove, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, light clove, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice and pleasant complexity and robustness of malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice hefeweizen. Good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with good robustness for the ABV and very smooth drinking. A nicely enjoyable offering.
