COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The aroma and flavor of this classic hefeweizen (or weissbier/wheat beer with yeast) is decidedly fruity with clove, nutmeg-like and even vanilla-like phenolics. Banana-like esters are also present. This beer is made with over 50 percent malted wheat, and hop rates are quite low, with hop flavor and aroma being absent. Hefeweizen is well attenuated and very highly carbonated, yet its relatively high starting gravity and alcohol content make it a medium-full bodied beer. The color is very pale. Because yeast is present, the beer will have yeast flavor and a characteristically fuller mouthfeel and is appropriately very cloudy. Alcohol by Weight (Volume): 4.6% (5.9%) Bitterness (IBU): 14 Color SRM (EBC): 4 (8)

Nice cloudy straw pour with pillowy soap white head . Nose is full of fruity esters, dominated by banana, with little to no clove. Also a touch of hop on the nose. Slight fusel characteristic. Flavor is sweet with a minor sour note. If you like sweet estry hefes, this one is for you. Carbonation was spot on perfect with this one.

Tap at Grizzlys. Slightly hazy yellow pour with a white head. Slightly sour citrus. Some wheat. Not sure this is much of a traditional Hefeweizen but its a decent lightly sour wheat.

Weissenheimer seems faithful to Destihls Belgian-style skillset and also does a nice job of honoring the traditional German Hefeweizen. Yellow and cloudy appearance. Bread, wheat, and candy aromas. Sweet grainy flavoring with some spiciness. Very light but refreshing.
