COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Laurelweizen is a traditional Bavarian style Hefe. The haze, banana, clove and bubble gum aromas come from the signature German Wheat yeast we used. This is an incredible food beer, pairing well with just about anything from spicy dishes, to desserts to…just about anything you want to throw at it.

From Anchorage haul back.
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange to yellow color with a big white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and a half. Light lacing started and then slid adequately into the beer.
The smell started off with a sour banana and then a light clove followed. As the beer warmed up, the clove settled out a bit.
The taste was pretty much the same as the smell. There was a light sweet to sour banana aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there for the style and for me.
Overall, decent hefeweizen. I might have had mine a bit old. Still I’d have this again.

Bottle shared at a private tasting. Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of big banana notes, wheat, spice, yeast. The taste is yeast, spice, wheat, banana. (See what I did there?) Medium bodied, strong lingering spice.

bhensonb (15838) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent gold with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is very banana/clove. Medium body, or almost. Flavor is very banana/clove. There’s an odd aspect - suggests wheat. Oh well, guess that’s necessary. I think I’m even getting a bit of that old Fleer’s bubblegum thing. Certainly one of the better hefes I’ve had lately.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has a bit of clove in there as well as a huge amount of wheat coming off it. Taste is slightly sweet, heavily wheat laden, with just a hint of some banana and citrus. Decent for what it is, but nothing special.

3.3
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle:   Solid American example, clean wheatiness, some citrus bits, nice body.   No sulfur or off flavors.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Mildly sweet, clean citrus based wheaty finish.   Good example.   Wait a minute, German Hefe?   No clove, banana or bubble gum, but still tasty and more like a good American example.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a slightly attenuated pale golden color, decent amount of white head. Aroma banana, bubblegum. Body lively and brisk, finish disappears. Not world class, but really not so bad, either.
