COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Thunderweizen is brewed in the style of a traditional German Hefeweizen: lots of wheat, vigorous fermentation, and completely unfiltered for a full, refreshing flavor that perfectly compliments San Diego’s perpetual good weather. Despite the hints of banana, citrus, clove, and other spices, we do not add additives to our beer - that impressive flavor is naturally produced.

Drank as a draft while hungover. Very fresh and fruity. There’s plenty of banana in the taste. Looks amazing!

With the exception of another California beer, Sierra Nevada’s Kellerweis, I can’t think of another brew that captures the essence of the Bavarian Hefeweizen so closely. Pour is yellow and cloudy with white suds. Fruity and spicy yeast esters. Banana, clove, lemony citrus, white pepper, and mild grassiness. Smooth feel - hugely refreshing.

16oz glass on tap at Stone brewery,This is a good hefe. Pours a hazy orange with white head. Bread, sweet malt, banana, a bit of sourness, clove, spice, and nutty wheat. Nice easy drinking beer. Well done.

On a guest tap at Stone Brewing in Escondido. Really one of the better American hefeweizens I’ve had, with a nice yellow-orange cloudiness to the banana esters present in the taste. Another brewery whose beer I’ve never seen on the East Coast, I’d certainly like to drink more of this one as the summer warms up.

On tap at Churchill’s in San Marcos, CA--Bright orange-yellow body with a great fluffy white head. Great looking beer! Bavarian, nutty, crisp, banana-clove nose. Great wheat presence. I really liked this beer!

Heavy on the lemons in the aroma with some yeast as well. The flavor is lemon/citrus with some bananas in the background. For an American take on the style, this was relatively authentic, a little different due to the lemons being stronger than the bananas and a good beer all around.

weihenweizen (3824) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a weizen glass. Pours cloudy light orange with large deep golden hightlights with huge fluffy head which has staying power. Well carbonated, medium body, and estery aroma. Taste is rich esters, tart, and clove. Really good hefe.

On tap @ 7th Ave Pub in Hillcrest. Whole Foods (!). Pours opaque creamy orange with medium head. Aroma is big banana and nice clove notes. Taste is crisp wheat malt with a creamy smooth finish. Big spicy clove, nutmeg, and banana notes throughout. Super refreshing in a warm day.
