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

Drake (8607) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Charlottesville Barracks, opened 6/26/14. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of wheat, tropical fruits and a yeasty finish. The taste is yeast, wheat, citrus and tropical notes in the finish. Thin bodied, low carbonation.

shrubber85 (7644) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Banana, clove, hay, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Slightly sweet banana/orange, strong clove and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Very solid.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy earthy yellow with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a rich wheat note with a hint of sweet banana and growing clove notes. Flavor showcases the wheat as well with only a bit of sweetness and clove.

mcberko (6560) - 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.

marcus (6537) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
On tap at FredFest 2013. Pours cloudy blonde with a decent white head and a toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied wheat flavor with a very dry finish.

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured cloudy yellow with a thick forming head. Aroma of bananas, cloves, phenols. Quite effervescent with nice esters and yeast spice. Hints of vanilla, and whetted malt sweetness. German ale yeast vastly improves Widmer’s signature Hefe.

wlajwl (3895) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (3703) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle: Slightly hazy gold with a tall white head. Crisp, lemon/banana/clove aroma. Taste is tangy citrus, wheat malt, banana. Sweet....and rather delicious.

maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2014
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.

thegreenrooster (3220) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pour is a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is corriander and clove. Kind of a surprise in a good way. Flavor is lots of wheat esters some bubblegum and banana. Maybe a touch watery but this was overall and pretty kickass hefe. I hope this makes it into their full lineup.
