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 you’ll notice great body and a smooth, slightly nutty flavor. The finish is light and refreshing.

22 oz bottle. Not sure why they decided to package this one in a big bottle. Quite the impressive head in my hefeweizen glass. Lots of large bubbles that settle slowly. Pungent sour, decaying grass aroma. Slight lemon and yeast in there also. Slightly cloudy bright golden orange. Nice looking. Sort of flat. No carbonation in the mouth. Some wheat and banana in there but really just tastes flat. Finish is slightly tart and yeah just like others have written, kind of a rotten egg flavor and aroma that peeks through every once in a while. Not a very good german hefe. No crispness to the brew. A disappointment.

bomber courtesy of EDA at egajdzis tripelfest, poured a cloudy orange color with a large fluffy white head, and that was this beer’s best feature. it had a foul, almost rotten egg like odor, followed by a weak, watered down wheat and banana flavor. the tail on this was bitter, not the atypical sweet crispness of a hefe. i was quite disappointed in this, as i dont like to give bad scores to my hometown brewery, but this was the worst weyerbacher i’ve had.

Harrisburg Beer Festival 2... Draft... Best wheat beer at the festival, IMO. I like it for all the reasons that Hefe fans wouldn’t. Less spice, fewer esters. More nondescript than most German wheats. Refreshing, crisp, Summer brew. If this sounds like your cup of tea, buy it. If you want a more authentic German wheat, avoid it. ’nuff said.

06.19.05 Bomber. Didn’t even know there was sucha thing until I saw it on the shelf at SuperSaver. And for the record, a hefeweizen in a bomber is a stupid idea because even in my half liter Schneider Weisse glass I can’t fit all the beer and thus can pour in all the hefe-junk from the bottom of the bottle. Anyway...Clouded yellow-gold with tall tan head (not white?) and minimal lacing. Aroma is wheaty, very cloveish, rotten banana, pretty weak, though, and dominated by the clove. Light palate and somewhat dry finish make for a brightly wheat forward refresher. Light toastiness to the grain. Something oddly vegetal. All around, it’s palatable, but nothing I’d ever, EVER buy again.

hopdog (8958) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle courtesy of EDA at egadzis Tripel fest (yes I know it is not a tripel and I should have heeded everyone’s warning not to waste my time on this one). Poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aromas of bananas, cloves and a little bit skunky. Wheat in the tastes as well. Thin body.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle from EDA. Hazy, deep golden in color with a tan head. Malty, and sour aroma. Hints of banana and clove in the aroma. Malty and banana flavor. Sour tasting. Ok.

Bottle from EDA at the Tripel celebration. Beer # 2. Cloudy, deep golden, white head. Malty, slightly sour aroma with hints of clove. Malty slightly sour flavor with banana. Soy sauce and cabbage. Not sure what this is supposed to be.

22 oz Bomber. An ok hefeweizen, but for Weyerbacher that is a disappointmant. As a friend pointed out, everything they make is great. This, unfortunately, does not foot the bill. Nowhere near as good as Triumph’s Hefe that I recently had. As it warms it gets more palatable, however. The initial sip was not that desirable. Lots of head.

TheBeerGod (5263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle at Bier Garden in Portsmouth on 4-30-05. Pours clouded amber with a small white head. Nose is fruity and wheaty with big tangerine notes and light lemon. Thinner honey and yeast come through at times as well. Odd for a hefeweizen. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Wheat notes, dried fruit, light cotton candy, and spices also make their way through. Body is light-medium with minimal carbonation feel. Finishes with citrus fruits notes, light spice, yeast, candyish notes at times and more wheat. Not too bad.

guzzler67 (1507) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Cloudy orange appearance with a large, white head. Aroma provided a nice blend of wheat, banana and clove, none of which was overpowering. Medium-bodied mouthfeel that was crisp and smooth. All the characteristics of a competently made German style hefe.
