COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since we’ve still got a solid four weeks left of summer we decided to throw a few batches of our German Hefeweizen into the kettle just before the short summer days are gone. Our traditional Hefeweizen is brewed with over 50% white wheat, pilsen malt, a hint of Munich malt for color, and fermented with an authentic German Hefeweizen yeast.

jbruner (5277) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2017
Pours a hazy straw yellow from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of mild banana and 4-VG clove esters, but mostly a sweet wheat throughout. Taste follows, light on most accounts, but nothing bad. It's a hefe, meh.

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Can. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is pretty standard Hefe, some banana and clove, light yeastiness. Smells good though. The flavor is pretty balanced between the clove and banana, with a nice yeastiness and soft wheat base. Pretty well hits all the bases for a decent Hefe. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent beer. 3/7/7/3/14

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Nice wheat grain aroma. Taste is pretty typical of sweet wheat. Not much of any spices or fruit flavors. Fairly enjoyable but somewhat one dimensional.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2017 Blind tasted with 5 other hefeweizens. Beers were: 1. Baderbräu Wheat 2. Neshaminy Creek Highwater Hefeweizen 3. Erdinger Sommerweiße 4. Aufsesser Hefe-Weizen 5. Wolters Weizen 6. Samuel Adams Hefeweizen. Both raters rated the beers 631245.

355ml can. Lightly hazed golden pour. Aroma is banana bubblegum wheat, fruity. Flavor is clove, sweet malt, citrus, banana.

Post tasting thoughts:
This hits all the marks but is uninteresting.

NikkTwist (3341) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 Draft at Bru Craft. Very hazy gold pour. Well carbonated. Soft white foam. Somewhat brash Hefe. More character than expected for the style. Browned lemons. Bagels. Medium caramel malts. Grassy citrus hops. Earthy chestnuts. Satsumas. Lemon verbena. Lemongrass. Tart. Much more juicy and earthy than your average Hefe but not that deep a palate.

From Beer Store growler. Dark amber with no head to speak of, little carbonation. Aroma is mainly wheat, flavor is wheat with some banana. Mild finish. An inoffensive but unremarkable beer.

3.3
FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Sampled on draft this beer poured a slightly hazy golden color with a huge foamy white head that left exceptional lacing. The aroma was yeasty with a bit of clove and bubblegum. The flavor was sweetish and very yeasty with bubblegum, a bit of clove, and faint fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.
