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.

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.
