Beer added by: SheepNutz on 03-06-2002

Authentic wheat beer, brewed in the Southern German tradition, won the Silver Medal in 1997 and the Gold Medal at the 2000 in Denver, Colorado. Penn Weizen is top-fermented, cask-conditioned, and very effervescent with a slight hint of tangy clove flavor.

A- pours a crystal clear cream soda color before shaking up dregs and adding, became a hazy copper. No head to speak of.

S- big, delicious banana and clove, with a little bready wheat, and faint lemon and pepper.

T/M- comes off a touch watery and over carbonated with some carbonic bite. Other than that the flavors are a pleasant blend of moderate clove, moderate overripe banana and a little bit of fresh dough character from the grains and yeast.

O- a nicely balanced hefeweizen that seems just a touch packing in malt body and overdone in carbonation. A decent enough summer drinker but far from top in its class.
