Lilja’s Heifer Weizen, a farmhouse wheat beer, is brewed as a celebration of our great state of Wisconsin - America’s Dairyland. The Heifer is brewed with 40% malted wheat and 60% Pilsner malt. 19 International Bittering Units (IBUs) of Saaz hops are added at the beginning of the kettle boil. However, the flavor profile of the Heifer isn’t primarily derived from the malted wheat or hops, but from the special strain of yeast employed during fermentation. Fermented at a temperature of 66-68 degrees Fahrenheit, the Belgian Ale yeast produces a dry, multi-dimensional, mildly fruity flavor profile that is as refreshing as it is complex.

Had this in a bottle so I didn’t see it. Aroma of yeast and coconut. Didn’t find it to very Belgian esque, which would be weird I think for a hefeweizen to begin with. I assume wit would be more fitting. In any case, I thought it did taste like coconut, and was a bit floral. Thick mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Meh.

A middling hefe. Light and slick on the tongue. Lemony with a spicy character that finishes unevenly.

Hazy pale gold. Nose of estery banana and mild spice. Flavor is light wheat with more banana and spice. Light in body and flavor.

12 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a medium sized eggshell head. The aroma and flavor have light banana and spice, citrus, pale wheat malt, a little funk and some off notes, not very good and I wouldn’t repeat this.

Pours a hazy golden with foamy white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Lots of wheat also. Flavor is very yeasty and lots of wheat. Slight bitterness. Lighter bodied. Nice beer.

Hazy, yellow gold with a foamy, white head. Banana, orange, wheat aroma. Banana, clove, wheat malt flavor. Very bright. Quite good.

Draft at State Street Brats. Cloudy unfiltered yellow-tan. Thin, lacy white head. Mellow banana-wheat aroma. Medium bodied, standard in a good way. Clean and easy drinking. An easy session beer, straight down the middle of the palate. Almost US-wheaty at times, the banana isn’t super pronounced. Solid offering, but kind of forgettable.

weihenweizen (4043) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours cloudy dull golden with small white head. Medium lacing, slightly grainy texture, low carbonation, and tart wheat aroma. Taste is clove, tart lemon, and grainy wheat.

Swirling bottom sediment surprize. Very nice hefe colored pour with rolling carbonation visbly apparent. Smells like simple clean beer. Yez, very friendly co2 on the palate, also. A little stronger than hefes I prefer but that sizzling co2 keeps it under wraps. I think I detect a tad of wildness in there. Not bad overall but the taste could learn some manners, not as mild as a heifer.

bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2012
(Draught) Pours a cloudy pale yellow body with a medium egg-white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, earth, and rotten eggs. Flavor of lemon, banana, wheat, grass, and menthol with dry, metallic finish.
