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.

Draft at DCA. Cloudy yellow orange, large fluffy white head. Aroma of banana and clove. Taste is banana juice. Seems artificial

omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2004
Sampled draught at Gordon Biersch, Burbank.
Cloudy yellow. Estery banana aroma. Sweet, soft and aromatic. Light bodied with loads of cloves. Really good real hefeweizen, even if it might lack complexity.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2006
On tap at the Dulles Airport outlet. Pale gold colour. Only slightly hazy. Lots of banana in the aroma but there’s something a bit "dirty", almost clammy in the background. The palate is much more citric and spicy. Perfectly decent, but no world beater.

Draught at Dulles International Airport, Washington. Haxy yellow/orange color, creamy offwhite head. Sweetish banana aroma, some candy, some toffee. Banana flavor, some fruits, cream, citrus notes. Quite refreshing.

Oakes (18794) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 re-rate: a little drier, cleaner than last visit. Upgraded score accordingly. old rate: Dark tan colour and cloudy. Big banana with light spice and autolyzed yeast. Sweet and soft with an appley, clovey character. Underpinning of sweet malt and a hint of wheaty tartness. The finish is a bit cloying. I respect where they’re going here but I don’t know that I like it.
