COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name pretty much describes the beer. "Hefe" meaning "with yeast" and "weizen" meaning "wheat". Our version used approximately 60% wheat malt in addition to the 40% malted barley. The result is a light, slightly tart ale that’s hazy in appearance. The perfect beer to quench your summer thirst.

adnielsen (9107) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Tap @ Town Hall Tap Minneapolis. Pours a fairly hazy, moderately cloudy, light orange appearance with a nice, fluffy white head. Slightly spicy, wheat malty forward, lightly estery, a bit bready aroma. The yeast is fairly subdued in the flavor which is nice. There’s a bready element along with light citrus, a bit of spiciness and clove, but overall, an easy drinking session beer that’s not overly complicated. Not bad stuff but nothing transcendental.

Light orange, cloudy appearance, clove and banana aroma and flavor. Good, starchy white head, decent lacing. Decent creamy mouthfeel. Good thirst quencher in the summer. Standard brewpub Hefe, perhaps a notch or two above average.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
On draught at the brewpub near downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick white head that slowly dissipates to a thin and creamy head. Aroma of light banana and yeast scents, a touch of cloves, and some white multi-grain malts with wheat. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with an average hefe style flavors of banana esters, cloves and a touch of bubble gum. Finish is semi-sweet, with a lingering banana and yeast aftertaste.

JK (4440) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Light orange and cloudy. Aroma of citrus and banana. Flavor begins sweet with citrus, then finishes pleasantly sour. Refreshing, a really good white.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Bright, nearly opaque foggy amber; creamy head and slight banana nose; sourish banana-clove flavors; bit thin, seems well-made but without a lot of character to me.

badgerben (4401) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Fuzzy yellow color with a white head. Aroma is a tad wheatish and has some spice. The taste is quite good: wheat, spice, yeast, lemon, and other citrus hints. A little fruit too.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Way yellow, pineapple/peach juice blend in color. Standard range of flavors (banana and spice) but relatively intense. Sweet, and in my opinion, too leavy. The carbonation is there, but it needs a bit more lightness and/or effervescence to rise to the top of the style. (on tap at brewpub)
