Classic hefeweizen traits make this an easy-drinker anytime of year. Hazy golden colour with dense white foam. Complimentary banana, clove, and black pepper notes, with hints of lemongrass and orange blossom honey. Husky whole-wheat graininess, balanced sweetness with a smooth mouthfeel. Perfumey noble hops. Pairs perfectly with our soft pretzels and Dusseldorf brown mustard. Take home a growler so you can add some Civil Life German Wheat to your favourite banana bread recipe.

Strykzone (6745) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Draft at Global Brew Edw. golden with only a tiny ring. Soft fruit, cloves, and banana are smelled. It smells like a classic German hefe. Flavorvis a little like fruity candy. Earth is tasted. Those hefe flavors that I like are here but are not quite big enough. The sugary candy leads. Still, I do like it. A nice summer quencher on a hot day. A bit of butter in the finish.

TheAlum (6956) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw hue with lively carbonation. Frothy bright white head dies to a small ring, laces ok. Aromas are a bit fruity, flaked wheat meets some apple, gentle banana and faint clove. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit of fleshy apple and banana. Touches of fruit, flaked wheat, straw. Middle is a bit bready, gentle tartness. Some touches of yeast, flaked wheat. Clean fermentation shows some decent yeast character, nice fruity compliment is cool, banana driven. Finish is a bit sweet, lingering fruit and gentle yeastiness. Nice, refreshing, doesn’t overdo the sweetness.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery during RBSG. Mostly clear pale yellow color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Awesome hefe yeast type aroma in the nose, some bigger banana. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Good lemon citrus in the flavor. Light tart, light to moderate sweet taste, little bit of spiciness. Nice refreshing hefeweizen. Less yeast character, good tart lemony citrus tanginess to it. Solid, bright stuff.
