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.

I had this on tap at E&C served w/ a lemon slice. Which obviously enchanced the citrus aroma. Hefes seem to have that golden haze goin on. This hefe was almost sweet and w/o any bitters. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Good aroma, nice and clovey. My only complaint is that it’s too dark to be a helles hefeweizen, but too light to be a dunkel; perhaps a ’Grenzeweizen’ (boundary-wheat...)

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2009 Maybe I got a really good batch on tap at the PA MicroFest, but I really liked this Hefe. Beautiful wheaty, banana aroma. Cloudy and pale. Smooth, watery palate. Banana and wheat taste, very clean with no cidery taste at all.

A good American wheat. Slightly spicy, with some lemon/clove hints in the aroma and flavor - but by far the strongest flavor component is bananas. This is the most bananaish wheat I’ve ever had. Very interesting and good. Its just a wee bit too sweet though, making it less refreshing and less drinkable than some of the classic hefeweizens. Color- dark gold, a little too dark. As it finishes, an unfortunate aftertaste develops - perhaps because it paired quite poorly with my steak.

This must be had fresh at the brewery to have the full effect. I agree that it is between a helles and a dunkel, and it leans toward an English style in hop flavor.

Bubblegum, banana, and clovey yeasty nose. Cloudy golden yellow body. Looks and smells like a German hefe...Tastes like one too. This is nicely carbonated, nicely balanced, wheaty and pleasantly quenching. A tad bit off...Cabbage and vegetable, faintly sour. This is quite good for an American brewery.

decent hefe. while this has the banana/clove notes it leans towards the tangy yeasty flavours giving a nice fruity sweet and sour balance.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 On draft at Johnny Brendas. Another fine example of a true german style hefeweizen brewed in America. Thumbs up! Rerated 7/1/05 - Draft at Johnny Brendas - huge banana presence, absolutely delicious

I thought it was interesting. Definitely more leaning toward the sour wheat components than the banana. I thought it quite hefty; yes, dark, head dies immediately, but I still liked it. A bit off style (not too much, I don’t think) but good.

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.
