Hog Happy Hefeweizen is a full-flavored, traditional German-style wheat beer that tastes like it comes straight from Munich, but is made with wheat from local farms. The yeast used during fermentation gives this straw-colored beer the sweet flavor and aromas of banana & clove.

Refrigerated brown bomber from AirForceHops poured into a weizen glass. Orange/light brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is clove and some banana, medium body, medium carbonation, and some light lacing. Taste is darker wheat malt, clove, and some banana. On the darker side of the color scale for hefeweizen, good stuff.

malrubius (2720) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Un Dun. Slightly dark cloudy orange with lasting head and lace. Cloves and mild banana. Mildly sweet honey/vanilla fruity wheaty tang with mild bitterness and then some farmhouse funk that I dont think should be there. Infected? Anyhow the funk takes away from the authentic flavor.

This was sent to me in a recent trade. A nice hefeweizen is not anything particularly special. Regardless I always love trying new breweries. Based on this data point I would give them a second chance assuming the bottles are not too pricey.

Aroma / Appearance - A rosy gold base and carbonated white head lurk in the glass. Spicy wheat adds a nice texture along with blood oranges and malts. Overall it feels a bit off my usual idea of the style. Despite that it does not feel offputting.

Flavor / Palate - Oranges, malt, and residual hops tickle the tongue. For a mere 5% ABV beer it does feel kind of heavy. A chewy mouthfeel transitions into a spicy finish that is warm. It is decent without being a stellar example of the style.
