Our take on the traditional Bavarian Hefeweizens that inspired Kurt and Rob to brew the Original American Hefeweizen in 1986.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap Widmer, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings pungent notes of clove, followed by banana. Flavour is very smooth and balanced, with lots of clove and banana balancing each other out. Dry and vibrant - correctly made to style. Very nice hef.

wlajwl (5546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2014
Aroma is bubblegum, wheat and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is bubblegum, wheat, mild sweetness/cookie dough and a slightly tangy/mostly smooth finish. Why they didn’t call this Hefeweizen as opposed to the original which wasn’t I don’t know, but it was a solid hefe either way.

ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2014
12 oz bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a pint glass. Gold, pale and hazy with a small white head. Aroma of strong banana, spicy clove, sweet malts, bread, hay, and light floral notes. Similar flavor, starts out sweet and fruity and moves to a crisp, light bitter finish. Average body with ample carbonation. Pretty refreshing, I like it.

Bottle. Pours a darker golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has a bit of citrus in there over top of a rather earthy yeast. Taste is actually a little sweet up front and remains mildly sweet throughout, with some citrus coming through subtly. It’s OK, but nothing special for me.
