Extra Hoppy Amber Weiss. Mahr’s master brewer has a new love -- an exciting and saucy new variety of Hallertauer hop called Saphir, German for "sapphire." There’s a metric ton of Saphir hops in this ground-breaking Weiss.

4oz pour at Churchkey. Inky orange with almost zero head. Nose has a lot of spice, some tropical fruit, pineapple, mango. Flavor is the same. All pineapple, clove, bubblegum, hay. Sweet finish.

Pailhead (6526) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, faint banana, grain, and a touch of wheat. It pours a mostly transparent dark amber with a fizzy two finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thing ring around the edges of the glass. There’s barely any lacing. The flavor starts with with moderate apple, some residual sugar, and caramel. The finish has some light graininess, faint bubblegum, and the slightest hints of citrus. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I love Hefeweizens, but this simply isn’t what I’m looking for in the style. It’s way too sweet and doesn’t resemble a Hefeweizen at all.

weihenweizen (3333) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2013
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours light amber with medium beige head which dissapates fairly quickly. No lacing, medium/light body, medium/low carbonation, and slightly estery aroma. Taste is bready, slightly tangy lemon, and some esters.

Travlr (22476) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Draft. Cloudy golden orange color, large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of spiced lemon and banana. Taste is banana, clove, bubblegum. Classic.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Usual hefe aromas of banana and citrus, also sweetbread and aloe plant. Daek orange hazy color. Surprise bitter hop taste, but not to the extent that the sweet elements aren’t allowed to dominate. Cola consistency, that is to say, kind of syrupy. A wheat beer by any measure, but not classically a German hefe.

obguthr (5921) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bready caramel nose. Cloudy brown, medium head. Extremely yeasty bread flavor, caramel accents. No hop character, no hefeweizen character. Fine beer, but perhaps this is an old boittle. I’m always happy to have a hefe, even if it isn’t hefe-y.

envane (570) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Super-cloudy dark orange with floaties and a white head. Aroma of ripe banana, orange and herbs. Taste is lightly sweet with tropical fruit and wood notes and a dry herbal-hop bitter finish. The hops are good in this one compared to American attempts at hoppy wheats that overpower with the citrus.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2012
The aroma is sweet and decently hopped but not overwhelming. It’s mostly a balance beer but I am not crazy about the smell of either. The appearance is amber with lots of chunks and a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average for this type of beer. Overall not great and nothing like a proper hef but drinkable.

devmo (3) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 25, 2012 does not count
A nice lighter amber color, pretty to the sun, with a relatively full head and good lacing. The smell is more earth and herb and the palate is full; it gives the impression of weight without being dense. It’s very pleasant tasting, grain, earth, lightly floral. While not my favorite from this great brewery this is still a very unique and interesting wheat beer.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting ivory head, with a bit of lacing, over a cloudy, copper (SRM 17) body....nose is bread, yeast, light banana/bubblegum, touch of clove....taste is bread, light banana, hints of floral honey, hints of tangerine, light clove, finishing with light spicy bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low. This is a different Hefe in that the usual dominant aromas and flavors, while present, are matched by yeast and hop presence. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7
