This beer is the only beer I have found in California that taste identical to Hefeweizen in southern Germany.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a voluminous head that leaves nice lacing down the glass. Aroma is spicy clove, traces of banana, some fresh bread. Taste is bread mixed with a cracker dryness, a gentle fruitiness and just a touch of a lingering bitterness in the background. Mouthfeel is thin-medium with a rounded but prominent carbonation. Generally a really nice beer, clearly well put together.

JosephsBrau Bavarian Style Hefeweizen has a lot to like especially at the value price from Trader Joe’s. Pours a non-traditional cloudy orange with a thick light orange head. Aromas bubblegum, orange and banana rise from the froth. Taste is more orange with a hint of banana and not much clove spiciness. JosephBrau puts out a delightful Hefe that is very enjoyable even though it deviates from the style somewhat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 oz into a weizen glass in late 2013.
A: Orange/red. Fluffy head.
S: Strong banana.
T: Loads of banana, also has clove.
O: This is a solid hef. It doesn’t reach the upper levels of the hef hierarchy (if there is such a thing) but it comes close. It is also very affordable.

What should have been a boring label, ended up looking very clean. Standard 12oz longneck. Brumous tan beer - looks like someone threw a wet paper bag into a blender. Tight, small white head. A clean banana/plantain aroma with clove and light vanilla. Mild bittering, slightly sweet, lots of esters - reminds me of Now and Later candies. Medium body with fine-grained carbonation. Very nice. TJ’s, Tallahassee.

Tallahassee, FL - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden pour, soft, fluffy white head. Aroma has some cloves, touch of banana flavor. Somewhat candied flavor, a touch of bubble gum, some cloves, a touch of artificial banana flavor Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Not half bad.
