In Bavaria, a unique strain of wheat beer yeast produces an array of distinct flavor qualities typical of a true Hefeweizen: citrus, bubble gum, clove and banana. Trader Joe’s Bavarian-style Hefeweizen is fermented with this exceptional strain. In accordance with the German purity law, this superior beer is brewed with a minimum of 50% malted wheat. Beer Stats 5.3% ABV, 12 I.B.U. Fermented with top fermenting yeast. Brewed for Trader Joe’s specialty grocery stores.

Cloudy amber-brown, with a good sized but not particularly long-lived white head. Aroma has a good dose of bananas and bubble gum, with a pronounced tartness that reminds me of yogurt. Medium sweet in flavor, rather tart, with some musty bananas. Good take on the style, but I’ll stick to the Bavarian originals.

Much better than I expected. Cloudy and dark gold. Quickly fading head. There is no sediment however, so maybe it is filtered. Tremendous banana aroma; rarely have I had a hefeweizen with more banana aroma than this. Some citrus as well. Flavor is good but not as good as the aroma. Sour citrus and somewhat sweet wheat flavors under that. A little bit thin. They are half way there with this beer. Make it a little sweeter and a give it a heavier palate and it will be a world class hefeweizen. Purchased at Trader Joe’s, St. Louis Park, MN.

A perfect summer brew. Tastes somewhat sweet, I can most def taste a tad bannana but it may have been the bananna I ate earlier. Reminds me of a belgian brew I had in Europe. No real scent, but its a nice brew that I can see myself drinking again. Only downside is that it is a bit watery, but its aite for a brewy summer brew.

Smell is somewhere inbetween a German hefe and a witbier, but it looks like a lger with a lasting head. Not cloudy. Taste has a lot of bananas and is thin and bland. Not a good beer.

Aroma is musty with a very hoppy ending. Pours rich, half head, half beer. The other half is still in the bottle. Rich banana flavor is right out front with bubble gum right behind, and a hoppy ending. Crisp, pleasant carbonated mouth feel. Flattens outs towards the bottom of the glass. This beer is a great value at less than 4 ½ bucks a six pack.

[Bottle] This was one of the better of these type of brews. Whom ever is there commercial brewer can make a Hefe. Good Color unfiltered, a huge banana type smell. Loved the flavro and the aromas. Good Beer finally for TJ.

12oz bottle pours golden and cloudy with a tall frothy white head that stayed pretty well and laced some. Aromas of bananna, bubblegum, and cloves. Flavor is lots of bananna, clove, light bubblegum. Light well carbonated soft mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing on a 90+ day yesterday on the deck. And priced pretty well too.

Better than average hefe with a good overall character. The best part? $4.99 for a sixer. Really that’s the biggest draw. When was the last time you found a nice hefe for sipping on a summer eve for under $1.00 a bottle?
