COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name pretty much describes the beer. "Hefe" meaning "with yeast" and "weizen" meaning "wheat". Our version used approximately 60% wheat malt in addition to the 40% malted barley. The result is a light, slightly tart ale that’s hazy in appearance. The perfect beer to quench your summer thirst.

3.2
Nuffield (4202) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Way yellow, pineapple/peach juice blend in color. Standard range of flavors (banana and spice) but relatively intense. Sweet, and in my opinion, too leavy. The carbonation is there, but it needs a bit more lightness and/or effervescence to rise to the top of the style. (on tap at brewpub)

2.3
Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Tap at brewpub. Nose-pork, soap, mild clove. Hazy body with no head. Taste-light candied banana, clove, and suntan lotion. A standard heffeweisen.

It had a cloudy orange color with a spare head. Similar to the Dukel, I do not care for the taste of this beer or style in general.

Very nice for a hefeweizen. This style is one I didn’t care for originally, but it has grown on me and I’ve come to respect and like this style! Lemon, orange, banana, this one has a nice fruity body. Very solid for the style!

3.4
MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2006
nicely done for a hefeweizen but nothing that set it apart to make to great. same citrus notes and wheat found in others. enjoyable but not memorable.

3.6
Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Decent hefe with some rich wheat taste. A slice of lemon and this is certainly a slice of summer. Missing the banana and clove found in better versions of the style. Of course missing the Gumballhead hops but that’s another story...

4.1
MilkmanDan (1942) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2005
Light gold with a head that lasted through the end of the sampler platter. Good nose, banana and loads of clove. Punchy sweetness in the flavor, lots of clove, very crisp. Full and sticky. Excellent.

3.3
JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Bright color... darkish orange-yellow. Cloudy body, white fizzy head. Fizzy bite on the tongue to.. distracting from the flavor. Fresh lemon banana aroma sticks out more than the usual sampler does. Full bodied wheaty orange, but with a slight stale taste. Pretty good hefe.

3.2
DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Hazy orange color. Husky flavor with orange peel notes. Minimal aroma. A pretty typical wheat beer.

2.9
PorterPounder (8315) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Light orange, cloudy appearance, clove and banana aroma and flavor. Good, starchy white head, decent lacing. Decent creamy mouthfeel. Good thirst quencher in the summer. Standard brewpub Hefe, perhaps a notch or two above average.
