COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sarah Billick, a friend of Lisa’s, spent a year taking classes and interning at the Isar Brau Brew Pub in Munich. She brought back the recipe for their Wheat Beer, and we made it here at the brewery. The Isarweizen will vary from year to year, but usually has some clove, nutmeg, banana, and tutti-frutti aromas, with the clove and nutmeg taking the lead. A little acidity balances with the sweetness of the beer’s fruit flavors. Crisp and refreshing - just the thing for summer. Available in late May (1.012 BG, 4.8%, 15 IBU, 5 SRM)

Strykzone (7560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2017
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Almost clear golden beer under a big off white head. This is pretty much a German hefe. Cloves and banana. That wheat and some maltiness, estery notes, yeast, and some nutmeg. A little something like peaches. This is a nice version of the German classic.

mansquito (6794) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Chuck’s Hop Shop, Seattle: pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is banana and clove and the like. Taste is sweet and fruity. Easy drinking and tasty.

Capa (3396) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Deep golden with a white head. Aroma is mostly malt and wheat and banana. Medium bodied. Clove joins the fray in the flavor. Finish has a lingering clove burn. Not a huge wheat fan but this was a nice change of pace.

Marheb (6028) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2016
(Bouteille provenant de Bottlecraft): Dans l’ordre d’importance: Clou de girofle, cannelle, banane, gingembre, miel et une moyenne acidité contrebalancée par un sucre franc. Tout ça sur un pain douillet. Excellent.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Orangish, faint haze, a little sediment, little head and lacing.   Soft banana and clove on the nose.   Smells fairly German.   On the tongue its a bit more subtle albeit its there.   Wheaty, a little mealy, but the spices come across on the nose moreso on the tongue.   Otherwise fairly clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft sweet wheaty finish with very faint banana and clove.   Very soft German Hefeweizen example.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle (bottled on 8/23/16). Nice to see Heater Allen locally distributed. Pours with a hazy golden orange hued body and a smallish white head that has good retention and decent lace. A bit darker than expected. Aromas are spicy/phenolic with plenty of 4VG clove notes. Doughy, bready malt aromas, mild isoamyl acetate (which is ok by me). Some slightly sweet notes. Flavors are malt forward. Bready wheat like notes. Yeast character leans phenolic (clove) with some backing banana esters. Balance is towards the malt. Mild black olive note as well. Medium bodied. Medium to medium low carbonation (~2.3vol if I had to guess - it doesn’t really break out on my tongue like I was expecting) - really lacking here as it makes the body feel a bit flabby and oppressive for a beer that is suppose to be light, lively and crisp. Otherwise a solid beer with spot on fermentation notes. The body and flavors are muted and let down by the lower carbonation levels.

weihenweizen (4043) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Refrigerated brown bomber, May 4, 2015 poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy orange with small white head. Aroma is clove, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is clove, bread, some banana, and some grainy malt.

bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle shared by Marcus. Poured orange gold with a white head. Aroma of stone fruit. Then goes banana. Near med body. Flavor is mild banana and mild clove, but something stone fruit as well. Drinks well. Much tastier than many wheats.

3.6
marcus (10571) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours dark golden with a modest off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty fruit and wheat flavor with a fair amount of spice.
