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.

Sweet-smelling hefe that doesn't suck. A standard wheat, but a decent flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.2
NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2014
On tap. Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Aromas of banana and clove. Flavor is similar. Easy to drink and refreshing. Decent example of the style.

3.4
jcr (2705) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Draft. Hazy light golden body with a short white head. Aroma of banana and clove, toasted grain, light floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/slick texture, lively carbonation. A decent rendition of a German hefe. An acidic tang in the finish after a sweet start. Grainier than better hefes, but still clean enough to be enjoyable.
