COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and refreshing, light and flavorful, Weyerbacher HefeWeizen is a fantastic summertime quencher and the perfect companion for almost any food. The beautiful translucent gold color together with a hint of banana and cloves in the nose tells you this is a beer true to the Bavarian style. We brew it with 50% wheat malt and bottle it unfiltered, so youíll notice great body and a smooth, slightly nutty flavor. The finish is light and refreshing.

I think they should rename this beer Weyerbacher Hefedishwater. Unlike most of their beers, a pretty poor effort.

Flawed. Overly sour, almost lambic-like. Iím not the only one whoís tasted this sourness, and itís not a good thing. Weyerbacher is a great brewery, and Iím sure they can fix this problem.

Amber Coloring with White Ring. Citrus Aroma. Sweet Malt, Pretty Sugary Tasting...Bit Grainy in the End. Another Session-y Brew...

Dark copper color with no head. Aroma of slightly sour cherry, almost like it was going to be a lambic. The taste is certainly wheat based, but a very watery body detracts from the flavor that is there.

22 oz. 11.9.05. So I guess Weyerbacher can make mediocre beers as well as decent/great ones. Pretty weak Hefe by any standards. Not on my list of drinkable wheats.

22 ounce bomber - Weyebacher produces a average Hefeweizen. Citrus, and sour yeast aroma, golden body, and thin head. This Hefe is made for quick comsumption unlike other Weyerbacher brews that are brewed to slowly enjoy and savor.

Canít get excited over this. Couldnít finish it, in fact. A super chunky yeast chalk fest with small notes of banana and clove, no bubblegum, and I have to wonder where the freshness went, b/c I definitely thought this tasted somewhat stale a touch sour even, despite being drunk the same summer as its release. So...yeah. Not so much.

Out of a bottle. Aroma primarily of wheat. Poured a hazed off orange color with a foamed white head. Flavor, my first sip really bothered me, it was wheaty and lemony but sour. Didnít get much banana but it did seem to soften a bit and wasnít as sour. Palate was good though, finish was relatively clean. Overall this one wasnít their best.

(22 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) The nose worries me a bit. Itís mostly stinky cheese funk, with some light banana and a mild sourness. I like the smell of (most) stinky cheese, but not in my hefeweizen! The flavor is a bit better, thankfully. I can taste moderate wheat and sweet banana flavors initially, but also a good amount of funk and lemony sourness in the finish. Itís not an unpleasant sourness, and it definitely works against the sweetness to keep the palate somewhat fresh, but itís just a touch too lemony for my tastes. But the funk in the nose and flavor are simply not desired, so I think this is a significant negative. This is too bad because the banana is not overdone, and could have resulted in a more restrained hefeweizen, more like what Iíve sampled with the better German imports. Medium bodied to start, but it thins a bit toward the finish, and between the ample carbonation and the sourness in the finish, itís not fatiguing my palate. The body is bright orange in color and fully cloudy. A small and bubbly off-white head quickly crackles to a small ring. Drop the funk and reduce the lemony sourness, and Iíd like this a whole lot more.

22oz bottle. This has a nice yellow orange haze with a thin cream head on top. Body is somewhat clowdy. Orange pepper malt aroma. Flavor is pretty smooth and enjoyable. There is an ending orange flavor that really makes this one go down easy as pie. Another fine offering from Weyerbacher.
