COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once reserved for Bavarian royalty for its light sparkling quality, Hefeweizen is considerably more democratic today. In fact, at Gordon Biersch we've brewed a special batch of our Hefeweizen to serve our guests throughout July and August! Hundreds of years ago in Germany, wheat beers were considered "breakfast" or "after church" beers, a testament to their light refreshing flavor and a tradition of drinking them on weekend afternoon. We invite you to enjoy our Hefeweizen any day of the week this summer along with our special summer menu.

TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2015
.5 liter pour at Gordon Biersch Park Lane. Poured a hazy golden color with a thin white top and a little lacing. Amazing taste of banana, clove and the distinctive wheat character. Medium carbonation, medium body. Cheers!

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Tap, Seattle. Pours a cloudy yellow orange body with a fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy covering. The nose is pretty nice, clove, banana, a little banana bread, nice yeast esters. Just a light touch of bubble gum. The flavor is decent as well, plenty of esters of banana and bubble gum, enough yeastiness, not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a lingering finish. Decent Hefe, not a standout, but no flaws.

brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Milky orange pour with a white head. A bunch of banana and white pepper aromas. Some clove, coriander, and a bit of a smoked sausage thing going on as well. A lot of sweet bread dough. Flavor is slightly citrusy and tangy. A whole lot of bread and orange peel. Big time bubblegum and banana. A little grassy bitterness on the back end. Is a little better (spicer) as it warms up. Wanted to like this more.

mkel07 (6406) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2014
On tap at Yard House Waikiki 201214. The first thing that I noticed about this beer was the aroma, sweet and full of ripe bananas. A little cloudy but that’s what you want in a Hefeweizen.

Pour from bottle. Good hefeweizen with a lot of spice. Love the aroma of this beer. I liked it better on tap, but it’s still a good beer. Could drink these all day.

"ok for a hefe, but they’re still just not my preferred style. a little thin, but the flavor that is there is pretty nice...wheat, clove, banana, a little sweet. not bad."

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a hint of a gold hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of clove and sweet banana with a wheat backbone. Flavor has lots of clove as well with banana and wheat backing.

Poured from a bottle. Hefeweizen was the reason I started drinking beer. This reminded me why. terrific head, frothy and white. Lemon aroma, tart finish.
