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.

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.

hopdog (9018) - 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.

3fourths (8104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2006
This stuff is terrible. IS THIS FILTERED? WHY? It looks completely clear, with a moderately deep straw yellow color, and a fizzy cola-like head that dies in about five seconds. It just plain looks terrible. I had some people tell me that they couldn’t finish a bottle of this, and after a few sips my impression was ’yeah, it’s bad, but I’ve had worse’, but about half-way through I gave up. Down the drain. This stuff is terrible. Full of fuesal corn and moldy straw flavors, acetone.... ugh, just terrible.

I like Weyerbacher brews. This one is a solid hefe, with good citrus, yeast, and wheat aroma, and a smooth, crisp finish.

Cloudy and orange with a nice white head. Pronounced citrus is present in both the nose and the taste.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle, must have gone bad. Pours a slightly hazed orange body with a white fizzy head. Acetone, and apples, some slight sour wheat and lemon. This is sour and went down the drain for the most part...

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Poured a hazy orange gold color with a small white head, but no lacing. Aroma of banana, wheat, citrus, and yeast. Bland taste of citrus orange, wheat, yeast, and light hops.

TheBeerGod (5287) - 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.

Suttree (5190) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Cloudy orange, big thick white head. Sour citrusy aroma. Slightly astringent. Sour citric flavors, and almost no wheat characteristics until the very end. More of a lemony, juicy sweetness as it warms.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Rerate: bottle 2005. Pours a hazy deeper gold almost copper color with an initial big white head bu fades and leave very little lace. Aroma is almost all clove with hints of vanilla and practically no banana. Im assuming the differences are from fermentation temp differences between batches. Flavor on this one has a slight slickness in the end and overall a weak mouthfeel. Rating numbers are about the same for both samples. HBF 2005. Sampled right after the dreamweaver wheat. This one pours a nice hazy yellow with a good white head which fades. Aroma is both spicy and estery with lots of banana and clove. Just a touch of vanilla in the background. Flavor was mildly wheaty but the mouthfeel was lacking and seemed watered down compared to the dreamweaver which had more body.
